10 October 2017. “Charlie” Chaplin on M T Kalashnikov and on “Christian Pacifism”

________________________

We dedicate a monument to Lieutenant-General M T Kalashnikov (a true Christian) tomorrow. Although he had some moral misgivings about his work’s purpose, the Church dispelled these doubts. Our weapons are blessed, not by chance does the Lord Himself bless those who bear them… as the Church says in its ritual, “for the security of and to intercede for Christ’s truth”. Once again, I’d especially point up to supporters of “Christian pacifism” that true Christianity has nothing to do with such a notion, and, in fact, opposes it.

2 October 2017. Igumen Sergei Rybko Doesn’t Think that Communists are “Murderers”… The ROCOR Has Gone Batshit Crazy

******

The images are of a recent birthday celebration for Comrade Zyuganov. Note well that he’s well-disposed to the Church… he’s a believer. More believers are commies than are Western ass-kissers like Shevkunov and Alfeyev. Igumen Sergei, and those like him, such as Metropolitan Yuvenaly Poyarkov, are true-blue patriots who oppose America’s designs on Russia. Shevkunov and Alfeyev are dirty traitors who suck up to America and Americans (they pander to American konvertsy). Neither Shevkunov nor Alfeyev are ruling bishops… HH doesn’t trust them. BTW… the only office that Shevkunov holds is a liaison for cultural affairs, not an important office at all. The recent ROCOR statement would label Igumen Sergei a “murderer”… Igumen Sergei is one of the best-known and best-loved priests in Moscow! Oh, I forgot… he plays drums at rock festivals (he’s a former drummer in a band)… he’s not against modern society, as some in the ROOCR are. He also doesn’t believe in six-day creationism (neither does HH, BTW).

Have a care with a batshit crazy website called Russian Faith… it’s written by goofball ignorant konvertsy. For instance, they posted about the famous weapons designer M T Kalashnikov… they didn’t tell you that Mikhail Timofeyevich was both a believer and a lifelong communist! They don’t tell you about the really important people in the MP such as Yuvenaly Poyarkov, Varsonufy Sudakov, or Mark Golovkov. They talk to a neoliberal-loving set and want to give you the impression that all the MP agrees with them. Nothing is further from the truth.

I can back up my claims with images. The Church doesn’t kiss the ass of “conservatism”. Thank God for that. The Church doesn’t label communists (or the Left in general) as “murderers”. Those who do so are potential schismatics… it’s that serious. Be wary… nasty forces are afoot. They may try to force a schism between the MP and the ROCOR. After all, their first loyalty is to Langley and the US Republican Party… not Christ’s Church and the Rodina. The times aren’t good… we have to face them as well as we can. May God help us.

1 October 2017. There IS a Difference…

________________________

There’s a real difference between a longing for our real tradition and the efforts of ungrounded converts to “recapture the Tradition”. The two aren’t the same at all. One is a longing for what one once had, but lost due to “reformers”. The other is a prideful attempt to erect what one never had. There’s a world of difference between the two things. The first is a real effort to grasp the living and life-giving Tradition found in the Russian liturgy. The other is an attempt by untutored former Prods to erect a prideful and stultifying liturgical superstructure over their Evangelical Anti-Christian Weltanschauung. Any grounded Orthodox Christian can tell the difference.

May God see and judge…

1 October 2017. These are the People that the ROCOR Labelled “Murderers”… I Find that Offensive and Mendacious

******

________________________

Recently, the ROCOR issued an official statement (posted on their official website, with the signature of Metropolitan Ilarion Kapral) calling communists “murderers”. This caused much uproar in Russia amongst believers, as well as it should. In the Donbass, in the Peoples Republics today, one sees a vibrant and inspiring coming-together of socialism and Orthodoxy. The Orthodox patriots embrace socialism and find it GOOD. Note well that the ROCOR statement would label these people “murderers”, for they honour the Soviet legacy. People such as Victor Potapov were paid employees of the CIA; they worked to enable its hateful agenda against the Rodina. The ROCOR hasn’t lived down its filthy collaboration with the CIA (they’ve never asked forgiveness for having aided the godless American postwar global project)… they received its blood-money… Fr Alexander Lebedeff admitted that in public. Yes… the ROCOR had more than one “Chekist in a riassa” (clergy who worked for the Western special services) and more than one Sergianist (clergy who sold out Christ’s Church to pander to one political faction or another). It has no warrant whatsoever to label communists (and by implication all leftists) as “murderers”. It helped the CIA (as did elements of the OCA, too… A D Schmemann worked for Langley, too)… which has a long history of murder, mayhem, and viciousness. If the communists are “murderers”, so is the ROCOR… for it took the money of killers and helped to enable the killers’ agenda. The blood of innocents is on their hands, too…

Have a care… we live in perilous times. Some want to ally the Church with godless American neo-imperialism. Shall they succeed? God willing, no…
