A point to ponder about.  MLK died almost 50 years ago, and yet I am amazed at the different versions of descriptions of the man throughout different people that make him seem almost fictional.
Oh so now you see where I'm coming from with the Gospels.  ;)

Actually it makes me believe the gospels even more ;)
Vain existence can never exist, for "unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain." (Psalm 127)

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.

Mor has spoken through George... this is the faith of the fathers!

Heck, that's true of people living right now.

No, the actual Oromo people.  They've felt marginalized since...well, pretty much forever.

Lol confused Ogaden and Oromo. It's African and starts with an 'O'. How should I know, I'm White.
But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.

Just don't let me catch you prattling on about "ignorant Americans" as it pertains to things European again.  ;)
Worship is theology, so a church which brings Evangelical and Charismatic "praise & worship" into its corporate life is no longer Orthodox.  It is, by definition, heterodox.  Those "Orthodox" leaders who make theological arguments for the incorporation of heteropraxis into the life of the Church are heretics.

The most sublime part of the inauguration coverage today was seeing Richard Spencer punched in the face by anarchists.
Blessed Nazarius practiced the ascetic life. His clothes were tattered. He wore his shoes without removing them for six years.

As much as I hate whacko racists, I equally hate the modern phenomenon of 'sucker punches.'

Conclusions from my trip to my grandma's house:

  • Why do Argentinians all look so autistic? I can spot one from a (safe) distance here just by the way they stare at nowhere with a confused face.
  • I can't believe internet kilometres into the sea is better than in my house...
  • Squid is tasty, but I didn't like its jelly-like consistence. I should have asked for it deep-fried.
  • This island looks frozen in time, it's funny how despite all tourism I still feel like I'm in the 60's.

Sucker punches have existed for at least as there have been fists.  I don't think there's anything particularly modern about them.  And the white nationalist scumbag catching one in the face was hilarious, especially when he was trying to explain what his stupid little frog lapel pin means to him and the other losers.

This is not an Argentinian, I can't see the fine nose or the blank stare. This may be - Hod forgive me for uttering this word - a Brazilian.
