15 September 2015. The Konvertsy WANT to Feel Persecuted

01 Westboro Baptist Church Phelps protestor

______________________________

This little snippet of an interview with Michael Coren is telling:

The Catholic Right is very frightened and very aggressive now, because they have a Pope who they no longer think is one of theirs, so they’re feeling very defensive.

Even as the popular culture welcomes the Pope with unprecedented vigour?

That’s one of the main reasons they can’t stand it. They don’t want to be accepted.

There it is… The konvertsy have an un-Christian, almost Antichristian, hate of the society around them. In their eyes, the society is evil and they’re the last “pure” “little flock”. I shit you not… they truly see themselves as a persecuted minority in the mould of the Catacomb Christians. That, of course, is demented and delusional, but that’s what they believe. Do NOT argue with them, please. They’re mostly beyond reason. They want to feel persecuted, so, they ARE under persecution… even if they’re not. It’s a rather Jabberwockian mindset at best, a truly disordered goofiness at worst.

It does take all kinds. Don’t waste your time on the terminally stupid. God has only given you a short life to do good in…

9 August 2014. You Can’t Make Up Shit Like This… California Man gets Death Threats for Hosting Refugee Family: “They’re Going to Kill My Family”

00 personhood. cartoon. republican. 09.08.14

______________________________

A California businessman received death threats ever since he took in a family of refugees because the city of Murrieta refused to help them. Mark Lane told KGTV that he was moved to help a family fleeing violence in Guatemala after his 5-year-old son asked him why residents in Murrieta were blocking buses of refugees from entering their town. Lane explained, “He asked me why the people were mad at the buses and I was like, it’s 2014 … why do I have to explain to my 5-year-old why people are mad at the buses when really they’re mad at the people inside of the buses ’cause they’re brown”. Through Border Angels, Lane found a mother, teenage sons, and a 23-year-old daughter who fled violence in Guatemala when gangs threatened to kill one of the sons for not joining. During the long journey through Mexico riding on top of trains, the daughter suffered multiple rapes, and thieves stole everything the family owned. Lane recalled, “When they came to our house, they were scared. We had two extra rooms, but they didn’t want to be separated, so they all piled into one room”.

After the word got out that he was hosting the family, someone created a Facebook page to organise a boycott of his business, Poppa’s Fresh Fish Company in Logan Heights. One commenter wrote, “Mark Lane needs a serious beating in front of his customers. But then he serves crap food. His establishment is rat infested and smells like raw sewage!” The site administrator had to take down the page after he received a cease and desist order, but that didn’t stop the threats. Lane noted, “Now, we’re getting death threats. They’re going to kill me. They’re going to kill my family. They think it’s OK for them to now threaten my life. They put my kids and my wife’s picture on their hate sites, not even the Mafia does that”. Lane said that the threats might have backfired; his business is booming thanks to all the attention. He insisted, “I’m not going to stop helping families. When this family leaves, the next family that comes through immigration… our house is open”.

You can believe in Jesus™ or you can believe in the Lord Christ. The Lord Christ would praise Mark Lane… Jesus™ would praise his detractors. Any questions?

10 October 2013. Warning! An Anti-Christian “Conservative” Site Pretending to be Orthodox!

______________________________

My Yahoo Alerts brought me something interesting today. False… yes… mendacious… yes… fraudulent… yes. It calls itself orthodoxnet.com. It’s konvertsy rubbish of the worst kind. It attempts to make the point that Orthodoxy and Neoliberal “Conservatism” are soulmates. There’s nothing further from the truth. Look at the above images. HH is friends with Fidel Castro, Raúl Castro, and Gennady Zyuganov (he refuses to meet with rightwing Free Market slimeballs like Prokhorov, for instance), and he condemns the Free Market Madness of the US Republican Party. Oh, yes… the fourth image above is HH receiving Cuban doctors in Moscow. HH thinks that the Cuban socialised medical system rocks… it’s why Cuba has a lower infant mortality rate than the USA has. HH is FOR socialised medicine… he’s FOR the social safety net… he’s FOR economic equity and he’s against “Economic Freedom” as preached by Rush Limbaugh and John Boehner. Most of all, HH is AGAINST the American aggression let loose on the world since 1991… and George W Bush‘s “Global War on Terror” was the most egregious example of that.

In short, orthodoxnet.com is meretrious and noxious rubbish put out by someone with no knowledge of what HH really teaches and advocates. Let me assure you, the rest of the real episcopate stands behind HH… although phonies like Fathausen, Dahulich, and Moriak are for the Anti-Christian Right. Mark this down well… I can give you images of HH confabbing with Leftists… he avoids Rightwing Pigs. We should follow his example! After all, it was the Bushies who planned and executed the dastardly sneak attack on Tskhinval that started with a Grad bombardment of sleeping civilians at 00.15 MSK at night. Only the selfless bravery of the Ossetian militia and quick reaction of the Russian Army foiled the Bush “conservatives”. According to Colonel-General Anatoly Nogovitsyn, Deputy Chief of the RF Armed Forces General Staff, the USA planned and supported the Georgian offensive against South Ossetia (that is, if you support the aims of orthodoxnet.com, you support unbridled and unprincipled American aggression throughout the world). As President Putin said at the time, “This wasn’t decent. Civilised people don’t act like this” (but American “conservatives” do!).

If support the American Right you support a Satanic drive for global hegemony… it can’t be put any other way. If you support orthodoxnet.com, you support the bombardment of sleeping civilians, the shredding of the social contract, and the dismantlement of all government protections for ordinary folks. That ain’t Christian, kids. You can stand with HH or you can stand with the “conservatives”… it’s up to you. Choose well…

12 May 2013. A Word on Certain Loud Republican Circles Amongst Us

04a Kirill and Zyuganov

Birds of a feather flock together… and they’re GOOD birds, not shitbirds.

______________________________

I say the following… so, don’t instigate a witch-hunt of those who hate the immoral and pernicious pabulum dispensed by the Republican Party. It’s time for Christ’s Church to disassociate itself publicly from the American Religious Right, the US Republican Party, and the so-called Pro-Life Movement (one can oppose abortion, yet, oppose this rightwing construct). After all, HH is/was friends with Fidel Alejandro Castro Ruz, Raúl Modesto Castro Ruz, Gennady Zyuganov, Pyotr Simonenko, and Hugo Rafael Chávez Frías. Birds of a feather flock together! HH doesn’t associate with godless laissez-faire liberals such as Wet Willy Romney, Paul Ryan, the American Enterprise Institute, or Mikhail Prokhorov… he doesn’t hang around braying libertarian shitbirds.

The MP is well-aware of the vitriolic Whites (“nobility”) that dominate some parts of the ROCOR. Such people got the boot in Russia, but their Western sugar daddies protect them here in the diaspora (yet, such sorts caterwaul about their “traditional” stance and love of Russia). The MP is “fed up” (as one put it) with the boorish anti-Soviet rhetoric found in certain ROCOR circles. Of course, it respects valid criticism, but the slurs, defamation, and hatred deployed by well-known parties isn’t welcome, needed, or truthful (especially, as some of the loudest Whites are on the US government payroll). They’re tired of the Whites strutting about and bad-mouthing the USSR. After all, the USSR WAS Russia.

At present, loud Republicans have appointed themselves “commissars” of opinion in our Church. It’s time to oppose them! They’re not telling the truth. Christ’s Church doesn’t stand for raping the working folk to benefit the Affluent Effluent, and that’s that. HH believes that the “Free Market” is a fraud, and has said so explicitly. That tells you much about the ROCOR loudmouths in the District, doesn’t it? Do note that the Centre won’t take in James Paffhausen… by the way, it hasn’t been for the lack of trying on the part of the Republican faction in the ROCOR. Sanity still reigns at the Centre. We should get with the programme… but shall we? Time will tell us…
