10 September 2017. Truth Without Love is a Lie

______________________________

Do note how the konvertsy hound the bishops about people they deem “impure”. They claim that they’re upholding the truth. Dostoyevsky makes it clear that their “truth” is the most despicable of lies… do reflect on that. I wanted to choose an image of absolute sterility and deadness… no people or animals… no plants… no tracks… no nothing. That’s what the konvertsy and their “uncompromising truth” are… sterile, empty, and dead. They have no life within them as they lack all semblance of love. They don’t even know that Orthodoxy is the freest of the Christian confessions and the one most ready to overlook human frailties in the name of salvation. They HATE oikonomia. They hate compassion and understanding. They hate what our real Church Fathers teach. They’ve created a soulless golem with no relation to Real Living Orthodoxy. The sterile desert is, indeed, an apt metaphor for them.

Sanders Shamelessly Pandering to Voters Who Want to Hear Truth… WARNING! SATIRE Ahead…

______________________________

Critics of the Vermont senator say that presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is gaining legions of new admirers by shamelessly pandering to voters who want to hear the truth. According to those critics, Sanders cynically targeted so-called “truth-based voters” to build support for his Presidential bid. Political strategist Harland Dorrinson said, “People come to Sanders’s rallies expecting to hear the truth, and he serves it up to them on a silver platter. It’s a very calculated gimmick”. However, even if Sanders’s practise of relentlessly telling the truth plays well in states that are rich in truth-based voters, like the early primary states of Iowa and New Hampshire, critics say that his campaign could stall in states where the truth has historically been less important, like Florida. Dorrinson said, “At some point in this campaign, voters are going to get truth fatigue. Right now, the novelty of a politician who doesn’t constantly spew lies is grabbing headlines, but after months of Bernie Sanders telling the truth, voters are going to start wondering, Is that all he’s got?” Dorrinson is just one of many critics who eagerly wait for the Sanders phenomenon to come down to Earth. He noted, “Telling the truth may be working for Bernie Sanders, but it shows a serious lack of respect for the American political system”.

Need I add more? You CAN tell the lovers of rightness and truth from the paid hack sellouts without a scorecard. It’s rather obvious, isn’t it? Yet, they think themselves “important”, “respectable”, and “authoritative”… God laughs… after all, Objective Truth and Orwell’s Ministry of Truth are two rather different concepts, aren’t they?
