Why Does the Family Values Crowd Ignore It When Evangelical Areas Get Socked with a Natural Disaster? Just Sayin…

00 Hurricane Sandy. 30.10.12

A friend of mine wrote this:

Have you noticed that when tornadoes, hurricanes or even the odd earthquake hits the Bible Belt one never hears the Pat Robertson types decree that it was the Finger of God for the Bible Belt’s sins? Natural disasters are only Heaven’s judgement when they hit NYC, San Francisco, New Orléans, or other non-fundamentalist parts. Well, it’s the same here… if someone in the USA displays a blasphemous artwork like “Piss Christ” the Right freaks out (they should… absolutely!). However, when something like this or Pussy Riot occurs in Russia and the Church squashes it… SOUND THE ALARM! THE ORTHODOX CHURCH IS FANATICAL!

Hypocrites!

Need I say more? After all, tornadoes routinely rip through Born Again districts, don’t they? Is God trying to tell them something (the biter bit, eh?)…

2 June 2014. Floods in Altai Krai… Serbia STILL Needs Your Help

00 serbian floods. 23.05.14

______________________________

The people in Serbia still need your help to recover from the serious flooding. St  Sava Cathedral in New York is raising funds, and all those interested in participating can do so using checks, credit cards, and PayPal by clicking the “donate” button on the church’s website (click here to do so). Those using credit cards and PayPal should type in “Flood Aid” in the “special instructions” section of their accounts. This money goes directly to the SPC with no middleman taking any cuts.

HELP THE FLOOD VICTIMS IN SERBIA! ST SAVA CATHEDRAL SENDING FUNDS DIRECTLY TO THE SPC

00 serbia. floods. 20.05.14

______________________________

Over the weekend, St Sava Serbian Orthodox Cathedral in New York NY collected 50,000 USD (1.725 million Roubles. 54,000 AUD. 54,400 CAD. 36,500 Euros. 29,700 UK Pounds) for flood victims in Serbia and Bosnia. The cathedral immediately sent the funds to the SPC, which will distribute them to those areas across Serbia and Bosnia most in need of such assistance. The campaign continues, and all those interested in participating can do so using checks, credit cards, and PayPal by clicking the “donate” button on the church’s website (click here to do so). Those using credit cards and PayPal should type in “Flood Aid” in the “special instructions” section of their accounts.

Editor:

If you were thinking of helping, it’d be better to do it via St Sava Cathedral, as the funds go directly to the SPC. Russian Orthodox people would do best by sending money directly to SPC sources, as that wouldn’t enrich a middleman. Serbs and Russians are fraternal Orthodox Slavic nations. Send ’em a fin or two… or three or four… they need a hand!

Now, aren’t you glad to have missed all the excitement? The older I get, the less “excitement” I need. I have plenty of company…
