    Serbian Church support

    I was watching Tucker Carlson and there was a fellow on there who said that he contacted 50 libraries- most that had Drag Queen Story Hour- and asked if he could read some faith-based children's books at library story time. He said that all of them refused and Alameda (presumably Commiefornia)...

    (Orthodox) Russian soldiers engage in systematic rape to prevent women from having babies in future

    I would think that it could never be a bad thing to see Putin widen the circle of people he is talking with these days. You never know where a ray of light could come from. The Metropolitan (below) sounds like he could be part of the solution rather than part of the problem as most of Putin's...

    Putin to protect Christians?

    Quite so. Saul of Tarsus ended out as - let us say- a very fine Christian, through the Grace of God, although the human minds at the time would never have foreseen it.

    (Orthodox) Russian soldiers engage in systematic rape to prevent women from having babies in future

    I don't like the way he treats his own people either. Admittedly, I have "issues" with the Russian military. Nevertheless they are in service to their country, often innocent minorities, and are entitled to more respect and dignity- and their families as well- especially the fallen soldiers...

    (Orthodox) Russian soldiers engage in systematic rape to prevent women from having babies in future

    It would be a major understatement for me to say that I do not think that Putin has thought through everything he is doing. Two weeks ago or thereabouts Putin made Kadyrov a General in the Russian Army, to satisfy the hardliners around him and because Kadyrov loves the genocide piece. But...

    This is horrifiying! Drag Queen "Penny Cost" at a Methodist Church speaking with children!

    The other wacky thing the United Methodists have going on is this business of "Sophia-worship" which is spreading like wildfire. As I said, they are going full Unitarian. Alright, enough of that. But just shakin my head. First to the left, then to the right, then left right, left right...

    This is horrifiying! Drag Queen "Penny Cost" at a Methodist Church speaking with children!

    This is not happening without consequences within the United Methodist Church. Y'all are probably aware that there is a major break-up in progress in the UMC, for precisely all of this foolishness. Many denominations are going independent, and many are joining the new Global Methodist...

    (Orthodox) Russian soldiers engage in systematic rape to prevent women from having babies in future

    Russia is about to lose Kherson. I pray that there will always be extensive opportunities for the Russian soldiers to surrender if that is their inclination. There are/were approximately 15-20 thousand Russian soldiers trapped in Kherson between the Ukrainian lines and the river. They face the...
