Mor isn't racist. For instance, he really likes the white women.

Oh yes.  I am all about the vanilla-chocolate swirl.

So I got this one from a friend...



Is there a legitimate use for it?

IMO, yes. The homosexual subtext is just that, subtext and mostly up to interpretation. However, others, most famous LBK have denounced it as being gay propaganda. I'm not quite sure what makes this icon different from icons of Sts. Cosmas and Damien, other than the less than orthodox iconographer. To me. It's the image that matters, not the one who made it. After all, we don't really know who made most of the icons from before the 20th century. Who's to say some of them weren't just as heterodox as Br. Lentz?

It's not funny to see some people kill and get killed regardless of how clumsy they do their job.
But I grant it's interesting footage.

You guys are bringing the Middle East here.  For what reason do you need to slap us and send us there?

You are either being an ignorant or a racist. I assume the latter because it is popular here for certain members to be racists.

Would you care to explain what do you mean by us bringing the Middle East here? Cause as far as I know, I didn't bring the Middle East here. I'm pro-abortion, pro-secularism, pro-same-sex marriage, pro-religious freedom, pro-legalizing marijuana, and lots of other things that go contrary to the Middle Eastern culture.

If you turn to be a racist, I will be very disappointed and will probably leave the forum. For a member who is a moderator to be a racist is something shamefull.

I'm not racist, I'm stupidargumentist.

Nah, you're a racist. There is no way around it other than that. I'm sure your parents/grandparents will be proud to know that their son is a racist.

I'm really disappointed to know that you're a racist. No matter how we argued, and how heated our arguments got, I had respect for you.

You are the one saying I'm racist.  I have denied that and you don't care because it suits you to believe in the imaginary Mor, just as it suits you to believe in the imaginary version of a lot of things.

I'm not going to spend my time explaining to you something as wide and complicated as The Western Culture. There are plenty of books written about it, there are classes in universities dedicated to it. The freedom and democracy you're enjoying right now are part of the Western culture. The great Cathedrals in Europe and North America are part of the Western Culture, The Legal systems both the Latin and the Saxon are part of the Western Culture. The idea of Human Rights is part of the Western Culture. The art you find in Europe is part of the Western Culture. Which all owe their existence to the Christendom, and especially to the Catholic Church.

You just got here.  I was born here.  Calm down.

Just cause you were born here and I just got here doesn't mean you know more.

As a general principle, I would agree.  But we're talking about you and me.  I'm pretty sure I know more.

I'm happy I wasn't born here or I would be like you and others, take my freedom and democracy for granted and think that for some reason I'm entitled to whatever the government is giving me. I'm glad that I was born and raised in a different culture, so now I can appreciate what I'm enjoying.

I wouldn't say I take anything for granted, but I do think my glasses are significantly less rosy than yours.

Sometimes I wanna slap those who take their freedom and life in the West for granted so they wake up. Pull them to the Middle East and show them what it is like to live without a democracy and freedom.

This is from "Orthodoxy and Heresy of the Anti-Chalcedonians according to St John Damascene" by George Martzelos, Professor of Theology, University of Thessaloniki.

Thanks for the reference.  I couldn't help but chuckle at times.
