Convert Issues / Re: Orthodoxy in Italy
« Last post by Frank J on Today at 12:06:57 AM »
Hello,

I was born the United States my background is that of Southern Italian I a person that converted to the Orthodox Christian faith back in January, 7 2001. I agree that it takes time to change from Roman Catholic to Eastern Orthodox Christian it is because you are raised the Italian culture and Roman Catholic religion seem to mesh together and unbreakable. Italian has to be able deal with what he or she is raised in. In my Orthodox Church I'm am 1 of we have 4 Italians in our parish alone. In my first parish I was an altar server with Italian priest and the altar server were also Italian like me too. It is very possible for people like me to convert and rejoin Mother Church for the Southern Italian people who history is Orthodox Christian.

The thing is, many people -- on both sides of these issues -- have conflated acceptance of gay people with acceptance of gay sex.

Bingo.

Even though this scene is based off of a real saint, I feel it has some sort of moral to it.

I'm confused. Did they just film both to let the viewer believe whichever one they want to? Or are we meant to take the failure as what "really happened" since it comes second and lasts longer?
The first one shows how he thinks the trial will play out, The second one shows what actually happens.

The archangel Michael and Gabriel all over the book of revelation.  He as well as the devil and demons are of the the same structure.  That would indicate they are indeed out of space and time.

Mainly the fact that demons sometimes make try prophecies.

Capitalism will adapt, it always does. Either the technology will get banned or some bright young things will figure out a way around it.
What happens if the dollar collapses?

Then the Yuan or something will take over (after the US stops burning, of course). Maybe some government will appropriate Bitcoin, I don't know. Capitalism is bigger than any one nation or currency.
But arent we in a capitalist world economy already? Where one currency is interdependent on the other. One could also argue that an economic crash like the great depression would affect every country and currency in a globalized society. 

Lets look at the dollars real value before and after coming off of the gold standard. I think it was president Nixon that was smart enough to realize pegging the dollar to oil and forming OPEC would stabilize the currency. What happens if the oil drys up? If oil is gone. The dollar will disintegrate as well.
There is also a risk that once sustainable energy takes over. Oil will bottom out a kill the dollar as well. Thats partly why there are so many politicians in this country fighting the environmental crowd.

Right, but I'm talking about Capitalism as a state of mind. If things went belly up to that degree, then after the dust settled, whatever currency was left over or whatever government wound up with the resources would just set the new standards.
Couldn't one argue at that point the system failed. Why would one want to revive a failure.

As opposed to what, Anarcho-Communism? If it's the only thing people know, they'll naturally go back to it as soon as they can.
