8 May 2016. HH Shows the Way on How We Should View Islam

00 patr Kirill and muslims 080516

______________________________

Think of this image whenever you think of saying or posting anything critical about Muslims (or people of another faith in general). HH teaches us through his actions (actions do speak louder than words do). By the way… HH is close friends with Mufti Talgat Tadzhuddin (the cleric pictured). HH is a good role model, no? DO STAY AWAY FROM THE AMERICAN RIGHT (especially, from scurrilous yellow publications like the American Conservative and the National Review)… all that they’ll do is make you fall into the ditch. Look at reality, not “conservative” bullshit. Take Hamtramck in Michigan (and another city that I forget… Dearborn?)… it’s a heavily Muslim city (and Hamtramck recently elected a Muslim mayor). Hmm… the Polish meat markets are still there… they still sell PORK kolbasa and serdelki. Many of the WTC victims were Muslims… there were many more Muslims killed by the terrorists than the number of terrorists! The mostly Muslim Syrian Arab Army and their Muslim Iranian allies liberated Palmyra from ISIS (assisted by Russian airstrikes and spetsnaz… whilst the rightwing Anglos backed ISIS). Need I continue? Senseless Muslim-bashing has to stop, especially, from priests. There are good and bad in every bunch (Westboro Baptist and those like it are really Wahhabis under the skin). In any case, rightwing talking points aren’t Orthodox… HH is friendly with Mufti Ravil Gainutdin (the head Muslim cleric in Moscow) and HH gladly ate with his Muslim friends in the Ramadan Tent on Poklonnaya Gora… need I say more?

Friends don’t let friends repeat rightwing horseshit about Muslims… full stop. One last thing… I get much intel on HH’s doings from friends, but I always vet it via patriarchia.ru (the OFFICIAL MP website)… not everything “out there” is righteous. You’d do well to not believe anything about the Church unless you can see it there. There’s much bullshit abroad on the net from rightwinger “conservatives”. It’s corrosive, it’s wrongheaded, and it doesn’t reflect real Church teachings. Have a care… all righties are opportunistic liars… do remember their motto, “Winning is the only thing”.

17 April 2016. Donald Trump Trumpets Hatred of Muslims… Here’s the Church’s Response

00 all of islam stands in the dock. 160416

______________________________

Let’s keep it simple… the Church condemns all forms of bigotry. Ergo, the Republican Nativist hate being channeled by Donald Trump is evil and all decent people (let alone just Christians) must oppose it. In like manner, the Church condemns warmongering and adventuring in foreign parts… therefore, all decent folks must oppose all Republicans and Dems such as Chilly Hilly. Hate is the opposite of and the total absence of love… Christ incarnated Love… therefore, all those who advocate hate (indeed, bigotry and warmongering are hatred to the nth degree) can NEVER be true followers of the Lord Christ. Bear that in mind as you hear the rants of the “religious”… I do daresay that such reveals them as satanic imposters, doesn’t it?

20 December 2015. Should One Vote for a Muslim as POTUS?

ballotbox

______________________________

This was my reply to a FB post on whether one would vote for a Muslim as POTUS:

America is NOT a “Christian nation”… it wasn’t, it isn’t, and it can’t be… by its very foundational documents. Secularism was there from the top. There has never been a religious test for political office, and, please God, there never will be. I speak as a religious believer (Russian Orthodox Christian, to be precise). As a member of a “minority” faith, I appreciate the protection that secularism gives me. May America NEVER fall into the hands of the Born Again loons. If I can vote for Bernie (a secular Jew), I can vote for a Muslim… full stop.

The USA was never a “Christian polity”… NEVER. Do ponder that…
