Denisenko and Shevchuk bless those who burn down Orthodox churches… ’nuff said. Woe unto them that call evil good… that goes for their American and Canadian enablers and cheerleaders as well…

I think that we’re a people with a legitimate natural right to associate with other peoples. However, I agree with those who say that force isn’t acceptable or an essential means for solving this problem. Primarily, we must act by example, to attract those who want to recreate a Union of Countries opposed to global evil. To do this, we can’t resort to a monarchical form of government; we must reject historically obsolete ideologies, such as the capitalist system, which destroyed Christianity in the West. You must use and improve a unified alternative to world capitalism and in its modern globalist (mondialist) guise. This alternative is an invincible Union of Orthodox Christianity and Socialism. Only a non-adversarial socioeconomic system can bring the people’s life in all its diversity to the real Gospel ideal. This approach could be a key factor and a condition in any decisive victory against global evil and a worthy monument to all our ancestors and contemporaries who gave their lives for Faith, Tsar, and Fatherland, including in the Great Patriotic War of 1941-45, and in the many conflicts provoked by the West and its satellites in the former USSR, Yugoslavia, Africa, the Middle East, and other regions.

24 April 2015. Would Jesus Do THAT? I THINK NOT!

These were anti-Muslim haters in Texas. They did so in the Name of Christ. Does Christ bless such racism? I think not… What Would Jesus Do? NOT THAT!

24 April 2015. A Thought from St Kiprian of Carthage

00 St Kiprian. 23.04.15

______________________________

One hears bleats from konvertsy toddlers that this one or that one has “automatically excommunicated” themselves or that so-and-so bishop or metropolitan has deposed themselves by their actions. That’s absurd. No one is “automatically excommunicated”… in fact, the Church is very chary of what the Latins call “excommunication”… it’ll often condemn an idea without attacking the person involved… hell, the Church didn’t condemn Bulgakov or Florensky, and they issued some right gnarly heresy.

I chose the above image with malice aforethought. Ilarion Alfeyev is perhaps the most pro-papist and pro-oligarch of the hierarchs… but that doesn’t strip away his position. The Church hasn’t deposed him, and probably won’t, as he’s useful in certain limited ways (note well that he’s the first External Relations head not to be a ruling bishop… he’s only a fancy auxiliary vicar bishop with a white hat). Tikhon Mollard’s no prize… but the Church chose him for a reason. He was the best man available… not the best man. Sometimes, there are no “good” choices… that’s the way of things. He’s bovine… but it’s like Pimen Izvekov, one of the bishops said later, “He was the Church’s choice”. Mollard was the Church’s choice… he smiles at the old ladies and issues toothless epistles… he doesn’t harm the Church. Sometimes, “do no harm” is all that we can do… that’s not a bad thing, kids.

The Church here is in NO danger… Rod Dreher’s rant about the Church going Episcopal was a laugh… a friend of mine said, “He thinks that he’s saving the Church, but he’s the one who needs saving”. We have plenty of broken vessels in the clergy… but then again, they came from us, and most of us are sinners (I know that there must be perfect people out there, but I haven’t met one yet). The older I get, the less individual bad clergy discomfit me. I can see that the younger generation is solid… anywho, God didn’t appoint me Judge of the World.

Christ’s Church is FULL of tares… as is every other institution that you could name. I’m here for the long haul… what about you?
