Religious Topics / Re: Fr Josiah Trenham in Tbilisi: Homofascists not Welcome

Not everyone tailors his speeches to please the oversensitive PC police.

How do you understand "philosophy subjugated to theology"?

Never letting your philosophical speculations lead you into contradicting what has been revealed.

Have you even watched the video? The whole video? He used the term "homofascist" a total of one time to describe legislative efforts on the part of the gay lobby to restrict religious freedom in California and in particular, Christian schools in California.

Using the word 'homofascists' for the kind of people who would infringe upon religious freedom and the conscience of others in the name of 'gay rights' doesn't seem to be too inaccurate.

Makes you wonder who the real drama queens are, with all the pearl-clutching going on around here.

The issue is that "homo" is a slur, so it's no wonder why people take offense at the term "homofascist." Something like "LGBT fascists" would have drawn less criticism. Fr. Josiah was not wrong to criticize certain extreme LGBT legal actions, but using an offensive term to do so is unacceptable (although, perhaps he did so unwittingly).

"Homofascist" is a play on the term "homophobic".  I doubt there is any person employing the term "homofascist" who hasn't already been pegged a "homophobe". Are those who use the word "homophobic" also guilty of giving life to a slur?

Did Fr. Josiah mean to use a slur? Probably not. But it's very easy to take it that way: just as easy in fact (and, in my opinion, easier) than to take it as a play on the word "homophobic" (which seems a bit far-fetched to me). He should have been more careful.

I'm puting two my other Grabarka-Antiochian pics

Supraśl, after the interview of which photo I posted earlier (I'm on the left, if somebody was not aware :P)



Grabarka - each pilgrim, after reaching the Holy Mount, go around the main (Transfiguration) church of the monastery 3 times on the knees with the intentional cross, that then is left on the Mountain.

Resultado de imagem para "come to Brazil"

Brazil is literally the last place that I would consider. Which in Warren Buffet speak means it's probably a bargain.

What could I do in Brazil? I don't have a passport or drivers license.

So, our Department of Health has a mascot for the polio vaccine, who resembles a drop of the medicine. A noble way to captivate children, but I can't imagine who thought it would be a good idea to wear someone like the mascot.

I finally managed to talk to her and she did the proper exams. It was just poorly treated bronchitis and perhaps an over-worried doctor. Glory be to God!
