Now there's a gay reaction on Facebook. The original intention was to raise "awareness", but in my surroundings it seems it backfired as people are gay-reacting each other's serious status and profile pics, thereby associating LGBTQ to practical jokes.

How could anyone ever have predicted that would happen?

Too many, Ibero-American brother.

I'd say a vivid fuchsia should scare them off.

I dunno, it doesn't really matter to me what they/we use either way, but considering that most people don't know what A.D. means anyway, I don't see much point in getting worked up over it.  :angel:

That's why I spell out "Before Christ" and "Anno Domini (Year of Our Lord)".  It gets the point across.

Speaking of Poles and food, did I ever tell the story of the Polish waitress in Westchester? This was fifteen years ago when I'd just moved to New York. As a single man who was suddenly making a decent salary, I began to eat out pretty often, and one of the diners on the way home from work had a fascinating young woman working there. We seemed to feel some rapport, altho, as she is one of those that gets paid to be personable, I restrained myself from thinking much of it. Then after not having dined there in some time, I returned, was sat at the bar, and -- to my happy surprise -- this waitress began talking to me, telling me about Poland, being genuinely friendly, and this continued for some time. I was grateful enough to send her flowers. Now comes the real story -- The next time I had supper there, after the flowers, I decided to mention that I'd taken a liking to her long ago. She said, "I started working here only X weeks ago; that wasn't me; that was my twin sister. You see how I have X trait she doesn't have. She fled an abusive relationship back to Poland early this year. She's not coming back and she gave me her job."

The term planet earth is an innovation which has arisen in recent centuries with the error of heliocentrism.

If one wants to confess a pure doctrine of Orthodoxy, they should be careful not to refer to the earth as a planet, unlike the current Pope as well as Patriarch Kirill and Patriarch Bartholomew, who regularly speak in error when they refer to our planet earth.

:) That would be brilliant. However, no, she wasn't the same person and I recognized the fact as soon as she said. The situation was eerie and disappointing.

A large spider crawled out from under my fridge last night, so I killed it. I now fear that the family and friends of the spider will come for me tonight while I sleep. I sprayed insect killer stuff, but will that be enough? (I have no holy water.)

I would strongly recommend Orthodoxy and the Religion of the Future by Fr. Seraphim Rose. IIRC I actually saw some decent bargain of it somewhere online. Was somewhat tempted to buy it ironically.
