    Serbian Church support

    The "actual" United States is on its way out. There are plenty of liberals in Texas now, Arizona has been conquered electorally through election fraud and theft, you hear of LGBT nonsense going on in states even like Idaho, Kansas, and other once normal states. I hear friends telling me of...

    purchasing icons, the good, the bad and the ugly

    I was up at the monastery at Dunlap, wanted a St. John icon for my desk at work, but didn't want to risk getting a hand-painted one for fear of it disappearing from the night crew or a kid, so, yep, it wasn't so much caving as it was not wanting to be out a ton of dough! ^_^ ^_^

    Serbian Church support

    There's a lot of frustrations with Montenegro from the Serbian Orthodox point of view. Our priest face-palms a lot where that country is concerned. I wish Rus the best. I would tell him to come home to America, but with the LGBT perverse, violent, homeless-laden, crime-ridden, chaotic lunacy...

    purchasing icons, the good, the bad and the ugly

    Father Matt might be in utter shock to know I bought a laminated icon from the Dunlap monastery last year. St. John of Shanghai and San Francisco, Wonderworker of America. It's on my desk at school. Yeah, I know, shocker!

    Reliability of Jay Dyer

    Father Spyridon is pretty solid. I've listened to him mannnnny times. Maybe it's me becoming a curmudgeon the older I get, but I like to investigate things myself. I see people coming into forums like this asking questions they could easily read up on or, heck, Google, and they just ask in...

    Reliability of Jay Dyer

    I didn't need YouTube to find the Faith. I found it in a Catholic bookstore, a book by Father John Meyendorff. The Holy Spirit had sent me through a journey of discontent with Catholicism for years, and one history book after another compelled me away from the church I grew up in. I'm not...

    Reliability of Jay Dyer

    I know this opinion might be about as popular as the Snickers bar floating in the swimming pool, but honestly, why do we all have this need to have "A guy" to go to online? Why do we need "Orthodox influencers" of a sort? It seems like all of us are always yearning for a talking head on YouTube...

    Birth Control Methods

    Yeah, nothing blasphemous or insulting about sticking a cartoon hat on top of sacred icons, right? Totally kosher! Yeeesh.

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

    You haven’t offended anyone. You have the right to share your feelings and reactions.

    Orthodox perspective on self-defense

    Self-defense is allowed in the case of someone trying to steal Gurney's Scat Pack Challenger 392. That's justifiable grounds for complete termination. It's an obscure rule, but there nevertheless.

    Massive Anti-Pride Parade in Belgrade!

    The bishop is saying he’ll anathemize anyone helping to organize or manage the parade, etc. In a video published last week, Bp. Nikanor is seen standing in front of a church, addressing a handful of believers, warning that Euro Pride “will come to Belgrade and flaunt and desecrate the city of...

    Massive Anti-Pride Parade in Belgrade!

    Bishop Nikanor is kicking butt and taking names! Last night, thousands of Serbs marched through the main streets of Belgrade in protest of the Euro Pride march expected to be held in the capital city next month. Estimates of the number of participants vary. Balkan Insight reports 5-10,000...

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

    School is starting up next week, so I’m deep in the thick of things now. Archer, thanks for a great reply. I’ll reply to you when I get some time. Right now it’s nuts. I notice the media is trying to heat up the Serbia vs “Kosovo” conflict again. First the Russians are the villains, now it’s...

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

    And where are you getting the statistics for Russian casualties? Ukrainian sources? the Pentagon? NATO? The British? Because they all differ wildly. The Russians seem to have terrible logistics from day one. Using cell phones for communications was idiotic to be sure. Air support was...
