8 February 2013. It Came From Russia! Gee… They Have Fiftieth Anniversary Parties There, Too

00 Russian family. 02.08.13

______________________________

The above is an image of a fiftieth anniversary party in Russia. It all looks rather normal to me. Aren’t you ashamed of having listened to bloviating liars such as Victor Potapov, James Paffhausen, Rod Dreher, Terrence Mattingly, Alexander Webster, and Freddie M-G? The Orthosphere CAN be our moral metre-stick and standard because they’re as much in the modern world as we are. Don’t be fooled by those who try to tell you that grasping American Suburban consumerist godlessness and spiritually-alive Orthodox reality are compatible… they lie. Be especially wary of the above-named sorts (they all live around the District and they all suck energetically on the Fed tit or are well-paid Hard Right stink-tankers… save for JP, who’s their grinning and gaping Stepin Fetchit).

The Orthosphere’s achingly ordinary… thank God for that. That’s why ordinary Orthodox folk here don’t have anything to learn from the heterodox… we have it all within our own house. Outsiders are welcome at all times, and they’re worthy of the best hospitality that we can give them… but we have nothing to learn from them at all. Let’s follow our own ways… Baba and Dede were right… and, as you can see, they’re still around in the homeland, hale and hearty as ever!

8 October 2012. Oddbod Nuns in Maryland Supposedly Under Georgia… NOT a Good Sign

______________________________

Got this from one of the Cabinet:

The story now is that the DC Nuns and their “Monastery” were accepted into the Georgian Orthodox Church, thus fully restoring them canonically.

Interesting, if true. However, don’t forget, the late Georgian election didn’t make for a turnaround in Georgian policy towards Russia. Saakashvili had become an embarrassment to Langley, so, they put up an oligarch stooge to oppose him. I looked at the Russian news, and, sure enough, there was an important name missing from Ivanishvili‘s cabinet. Nino Burdzhanadze isn’t in the cabinet… that means that Ivanishvili is nothing but an American lickspittle, worse than Saakashvili was (no lie… the prick has French citizenship, dontcha know).

This means that the Georgian Church is becoming like the Phanar, an obsequious and obedient Stepin Fetchit for Langley. It’d explain how Fathausen got his hands on the money that he spent like a horny sailor in a jeepney on liberty in Po City. It’s a replay of the Cold War years, when Langley backed both Jordanville and SVS at the same bloody time (with Rodzianko and Potapov sticking in their thumbs and pulling out more than one plum, “Oh, what good boys are we!”).

It’s farcical, isn’t it? Yet, look at the GOOD side… it won’t endear Fathausen (who’s called “Johnnie” by a certain well-known son of a certain well-known priest) to Hilarion Kapral, that’s for certain… it’ll also piss off a bishop or two on the OCA Holy Synod. This wasn’t the brightest move in creation, but since when has JP been either prudent or insightful? He’s playing entirely according to character…

Give me the jug… it’s getting loonier by the day…
