29 December 2014. Happy Snowman on the Russian Wikipedia… He’s NOT on the English Version…

00 happy Russian Wikipedia snowman. 29.12.14


Look at the Happy Snowman that they have up on the Russian Wikipedia. He’s not on the English-language version, sadly enough. Probably, it’s because New Year is a FAR bigger thing in Russia than it is in the USA. I should mention that the Russian Wikipedia is the “go-to” version for anything Russian or anything Orthodox. In the English-language Wikipedia, articles on Russia are marred by vicious lies inserted by “Ukrainians” and US Republicans, and articles on Orthodoxy suffer from being edited by Uniates, cluelesss konvertsy like Whiteford, and partisan elements such as SVS. The Russian version is more objective… its articles on Orthodoxy aren’t written by Uniate apostates, konvertsy fools, or academic poseurs… they’re written by real theologians. If you don’t know Russian, run a machine translation. It’s that much better, kids…

12 December 2011. The Church’s OFFICIAL Response to the Situation Surrounding the Recent RF Gosduma Election

You can believe the truth from the Rodina… or you can believe Sophia Kishkovsky’s bullshit… it’s up to you…


Editor’s Foreword:

Today, Sophia Kishkovsky wrote an article in the New York Times purportedly giving the viewpoint of the Mother Church. She is an arrant liar… she lies with malice aforethought. What’s more, she’s well aware that she’s lying (by omission… it’s white propaganda, not black propaganda). It’s utter shit from stem to stern. What you’ll read HERE is the OFFICIAL word from the Centre. I’ll have more to say at the end of this. Read on and hear what the REAL CHURCH has to say (it doesn’t need a CIA hireling to speak to us, kids).



Vladimir Legoida, the head of the MP Information Department, said that the Church must pray for the peace and salvation of mankind, and the authorities must “listen carefully to everyone, both the satisfied and the unsatisfied, so as to forestall any violations of anyone’s rights, as well as to seriously respect the will of all the people. Whether or not one participates in legitimate political demonstrations is a matter of responsible personal choice on the part of each individual. In this case, of course, one must refrain from illegal actions and provocations. The Church prays that no violence comes to any of the parties. Preservation of the civil peace is a major challenge facing our society”, Legoida said on Friday to Interfax-Religion in comment on the demonstrations in several Russian cities protesting the announced election results. In his opinion, those who make accusations of vote-tampering should only use objective facts and evidence, “always acting within the law”.

Vladimir Romanovich went on to say that reports of alleged election fraud came in today to church institutions. All such reports go to the Department of Church and Society {headed by Fr Vsevolod Chaplin: editor}, where specialists will carefully examine them, aided by experts from the Human Rights Centre of the World Russian People’s Council (VRNS), an authoritative Church/public organisation. If these allegations contain objective facts and verifiable evidence, the MP Holy Synod will bring them to the attention of the Central Election Commission. In his words, Legoida emphasised, “Right now, what’s most important for us is to seek the truth, to respect the people and their choice. The Church has always advocated and is in favour of telling the truth. Indeed, any lie is morally unacceptable and shouldn’t remain without legal consequences, regardless of who may be spreading it, whether it’s the supporters or the opponents of the results of the elections”.

With regard to the direct participation of the clergy in any political activities, Legoida commented that a priest, first and foremost, should always be aware of his ministry to Christ’s Truth and of his pastoral duty, which orders him to love all people, regardless of their secular opinions. “In the Church, and only in the Church, people of different political opinion stand next to one another, partaking of the Body and Blood of Christ from the One Chalice, and the duty of the priest is to bring peace to souls tormented by enmity and hatred. I hope that’s the way that it’ll always be amongst us”, Vladimir Romanovich concluded.


Fr Vsevolod Chaplin, the chairman of the MP Department for Church and Society, urged Russians to step away from confrontation in connection with the societal rejection of the electoral results in the recent parliamentary elections. “No one can fail to express their satisfaction at the fact that rallies being held in Russian cities are, on the whole, peaceful, within the law. No matter how disparate our political positions may be, the main thing today is to preserve civil order and our sovereignty, to prevent a new 1905, 1917, 1991, or 1993”, he told Interfax-Religion on Saturday. As for those who want new revolutions, Vsevolod Anatolyevich went on to say, “God won’t forgive them the woes generated by such a disaster, for the suffering they’ll impose on their neighbours. Today, both law enforcement and protesters should behave correctly. Glory to God, in most cases, that’s what happens”.

He acknowledged that, in recent days, that people shouted a lot of emotional and even insulting slogans at these rallies, saying, “However, they also asked some very serious questions, even if it was inconvenient for the authorities. Let’s hope that the government gives them an adequate and honest answer”. In his view, if the rallies go peacefully, it’ll create the conditions for a national dialogue about the format of the electoral process and the means of social control over them. Fr Vsevolod said, “I’m convinced that we need such a dialogue for the sake of civil peace and people’s trust in the government. All the political parties, the various social groups, religious communities, and social movements, including the liberal and conservative {in Russian terms, “liberal” means Anglosphereconservative”, and “conservative” means “nationalist”: editor} opposition should participate in this dialogue. There are many venues for such a dialogue, in particular, I’m thinking of the RF Public Chamber“. However, he emphasised that we can’t dialogue with provocateurs and thugs, we should give such sorts “the iron fist… any self-respecting government anywhere in the world would do that”.

Editor’s Afterword:

These two pieces are the only posts on patriarchia.ru relating to the current unrest in the Rodina. There’s NOTHING else. I can’t stress too highly that this is the ONLY MP official website. If there’s a disagreement between another website and patriarchia.ru… this is the REAL DEAL, kids… this is the trump card. Everything that Sophia Kishkovsky quoted was from unofficial sources. Pravmir is known for its openness to semi-converted American konvertsy loudmouths (mainly due to the baleful influence of Dickie Wood), which colours its reportage… but it’s NOT an official source.

That’s to say, Sophia Kishkovsky’s assertion, “Russian Orthodox Church adds influential voice to calls for election reform”, is nothing but lying white propaganda of the most noxious sort. The proper statement is, “Voices within the Russian Orthodox Church call for election reform”. One of these things is NOT like the other! Even a kid watching Sesame Street can tell the difference. She’s being quite clever… actually, she’s only writing what her Langley handlers are telling her to. Ambassador Churkin, the RF Consul General, and Archbishop Yustinian Ovchinnikov should protest to the NY Times in person, and demand a retraction of Ms Kishkovksy’s assertions, as they’re a misrepresentation of official statements of both the MP and (by implication) the Russian state.

That’s how white propaganda works… it uses people’s innocent ignorance. Since what’s given is true, the conclusion must be true, too. NOT SO FAST… if you want a true and righteous conclusion, you must give all the facts, and you must properly identify and label them. Ms Kishkovsky didn’t do such. First, we had CNN lying about Russian events… then, Fox News… and, now, Sophia Kishkovsky. However, Ms Kishkovsky’s brazen lies shouldn’t surprise Russian Orthodox people. Her father’s Lyonyo Kishkovsky, who’s part of the lying Syosset apparat. The apple sure didn’t fall far from the tree! Her father’s hated at the Centre… and, no doubt, his daughter’s much the same.

NEVER trust American sources on Russian news… get back to the sources, and you’ll get the real story. As for Ms Kishkovsky (and her old man)… the less said, the better…
