At this point I'm comfortable enough with my sexuality...I mean Orthodoxy...that I try to correct misconceptions. If someone is insulting the Church, I get very combative, especially if someone is bad mouthing the Virgin Mary or calling us idolaters.

Every Orthodox church, sadly, has images within it which are uncanonical. Your post simply proves that mistakes in what is hung or painted in Orthodox churches continue to be made. It bears repeating that the mere presence of such images in churches does not automatically mean they are suitable for veneration.

What is the position of the Orthodox Church on the veneration of this image?

Is the Guadalupe image venerated as an Icon by Orthodox believers in Mexico?

Although it is depicted in the Antiochian monastery of St. Anthony the Great in Mexico, I'm not sure that it is actually venerated as an icon by the Orthodox there.

In addition to the above mentioned links, here are photos of other Orthodox parishes in Mexico which have an image of Our Lady of Guadalupe:

After 231 years, even Americans don't really care about the American Revolution.  July 4 is just a picnic and fireworks day.  Heck, even Danes celebrate it.

Is all fantasy bad?
No. Phantasia is a form of escapism, and is not the same as what we call fantasy/imagination today.
Does it have to do with imagining yourself to be a lot holier than you are?

Okay, marrying yourself makes no sense. You already live with yourself 24/7!!  laugh

Cohabitation before marriage is a sin. 

Cue the progressive movement within the various "churches" to legitimize auto-eroticism so long as it's within the loving confines of yourself and yourself.

It's not really a "progressive movement", at least not in the USA. Have you read what James Dobson said about it? For many evangelicals, if the Bible doesn't explicitly condemn it, it must be okay.

Actually, yeah. Not just Dobson, but Tim LaHaye (of Left Behind infamy) back in the late '70s/early '80s published a "Christian" sex manual with his wife where he, if not encouraged, at least condoned the practice.

What, then, is the pastoral or liturgical need which compels the writing of an akathist based on Revelation? Under what circumstances is it intended to be prayed? To whom or what will it be addressed? What form will the Hail, .... stanzas take? Whose interpretation of Revelation will inform the work? Your own? Etc, etc.

wgw might spiritually benefit from it. IMO it's enough, isn't it?

Wgw keeps saying he wants this work heard in churches, because he feels Revelation needs to be heard in church. This puts the writing of such a work far beyond a purely personal spiritual or devotional exercise.

Why do you paint icons?

Why is this question relevant to the matter being discussed here?  Huh
