However I'm here for professional research.
The whole forum is Mor. We're emanations of his godlike mind.

Nice story, but what an anticlimax.

A climax to this story would have likely led to me being deposed.

That guy you called a pansie?  He got his whole squad killed in Sandistan.  That girl you called fat?  She died of complications resulting from being 457 lbs leaving three kids behind motherless.  That girl you called a slut?  She has the Gonnaherpisyphilitis B plus two viruses usually only found in Wombats.  That guy you called a loser?  He just shot up the Dairy Queen that fat girl went to every day up until her untimely death at 44.  That community organizer you told to quit smoking pot and get a real job?  He's blowing up third-world wedding parties with drones.  That scrawny chicken farmer with dorky glasses grew up to become the Reichsfuhrer of the SS.  That puppy you called a bad doggy for ripping up your slippers?  He mauled a child and then crapped in the basement.  Again.  That bully who picked on the dorky kid writing stories in math class?   He got urinated on by older kids because the dorky kid was good at networking.

Great stuff from Vamrat! Regardless of whether I agree with the sentiment behind it, he certainly destroyed the vapid sentimentalism of much of our current political and social culture. Well done, I must say.

Every story that contains a bit of truth contains a bit of Orthodoxy.
Many Energies, 3 Persons, 2 Natures, 1 God, 1 Church, 1 Baptism, and 1 Cup. The Son begotten only from the Father, the Spirit proceeding only from the Father, Each glorifying the Other. The Son sends the Spirit, the Spirit Reveals the Son, the Father is seen in the Son. The Spirit spoke through the Prophets and Fathers and does so even today.

Arachne, how hard would it be for me to legally move to the UK?

Just yell aloha snackbar really loud as soon as you exit the plane.  If you go to Rotterham I hear they give an underage lover to each new immigrant.

I'm going to guess that no fewer than six OCNetters just looked up "Rotterham" to see if emigration was feasible.

Quote
"Men must avoid entering into sexual relations on Sundays and feast days in order to not give birth to handicapped children."  St George Karslides
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.

This situation happened in Kosovo when the Albanian Muslim refugees came in, killed the Serbian occupants, and then took over Serbian homes and lands. Do we have such short memories of the Serbian massacres?

May their memory be eternal.

I did not think that taking a person's statement out of context to make a funny line was the purpose of this thread. And your statement is nonsense, because she may have wanted to make a comment about something going on in another thread. You are ignoring history between these two.

I think distorting the sense of what someone is making the effort to write about (and I do not care how elegantly it is done) and making it appear the poster is some sort of idiot is an assault.

The distortion of the truth occurred here where debate should not occur.

If you disagree start a thread.

In this regard I do think debate that does not get personal is important.

Quotable quote number three of this thread (dealing with the ordination of women)

------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------

Ok, I dont know that I'm getting through so I'm going to respond with a similar argument about race being an impediemnt to the priesthood. Yes, it is offensive, and it is intended to be offensive to get my point across...but it is no less offensive than your arguments. So without further ado...

On the issue; The Holy Church has to obey the theological and spiritual roots of the fathers back our lord Jesus Christ on earth. Ordination is something that we except on the terms given us from the holy fathers the apostles. All sacraments are soemthing we are given by God not soemthing we create. Eve came out of Adams body she was not created seperately from the dust of the earth and the spirit of God like Adam was. The Church came out of Christs body, 'she' was not created seprately from earthy flesh and the spirit of God which Christ is.

The Negro is, by tradition, the decendent of Canaan the son of Ham, a servant race, not blessed as are the decendents of Shem and Japheth. He is commanded by God to serve the other races of men, to place him in a place of authority such as the priesthood would be a violation of the word of God. Furthermore, is this not seen in the body and build of the negro, he is built for labour and work as the ox, to take him from that position and place him in a position of intellectual authority is unnatural and contrary to God's will.

Quote
So the Church is symbolic of these biblical truths which is the re-birth of Adam in Christ and the saving through grace of Adams generations till Christs second return.

So the Church is symbolic of these biblical truths in which Christ, from the line of Shem, and the saving through grace of Shem's descendents till Christs second return.

Quote
The Church is women 'in' man. One flesh; which is Christs flesh. Christ taught "I am the Church and the Church is my bride".

The negro is a servant, servant to the descendents of Shem and Japheth. As scripture proclaims 'And he said, Blessed be the LORD God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.'

Quote
AS such marriage is Holy among us, sacred. This sacrament like all other is the 'tone' of the fulfillment of Christ relationship in the Church of His body...His people. The sacrament can not change. As with all the remaining 6 because they are the 'tone' of Christ among us.

As such the relationship between master and slave is sacred, it is commanded by God and cannot change.

Quote
Ordination is not a men's club as our new age contemporary minds see it. It is order in the Church established by Christ with the Holy Spirit. The apostles taught "A Deacon or Bishop shall be the husband of one wife" (read First and second Timothy). This means a few things one of which is a married man can not address but one women as his wife; he can't have a "first wife" or "second wife" or "ex-wife". He can not have had a divorce and re-married if so he can not be a deacon or anything else in the Holy CHurch. A lay person in this situation can not take communion in some orthodox churches until very extensive penance or repair of the matter is completed.

Ordination is not a white man's club as our new age contemporary minds see it. It is order in the Church established by God with the Holy Spirit. The scriptures teach 'And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren.' This means a few things one of which is a wite man cannot address but the negro as slave; he can't have 'white slave' or 'black slave' or 'ex-slave.' He cannot emancipate and, if he takes as slave one other than the Negro, should not be a deacon or anything else in the Holy Church. Anyone who opposes this slavery is also Anathematized by the canons of the Holy Synod of Gangra.

Quote
This also teaches that a women are not to be "ordained" Deacon since she can not have a "wife" but has a husband. In many orthodox societies from the days of the apostles to now the wife of a clergy man was respected and treated with reverence and respect within the church. She was given much duty especially when her husband was away. Today in Ethiopia and I know also in Greece a Deacons wife OR priest wife has a special title. Her hand is not kissed but she is bowed to and asked "pray for me". This is a great honor. Her life must be like a deacon or priest...not a women of liesure and fashion, not a gossip or wearer of much jewlry and make-up. She is a women of natural beauty adorned on her by God. She is not loud but becoming; a strong support for the work of the church. I have found some deacon wives more beautiful in the faith than than some deacons.

Timothy also teaches that those who oppose this institution are "proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words,' 'whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings, Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself.' But this is not to say that the negro is less well respected in society, it is simply that his role is different. He is allowed to work in the field in the role of a servant, in this way he may approach Christ, though it is given only to the white man to approach Christ through the office of the Priesthood. Also the Negro slave should be poor, humble, obedient, and loving towards his Master.

Quote
People look at her and know immediately "her husband is clergy man"

People look at him and know immediately, 'he is a good Negro.'

These are just two point of Holy tradition which is the Orthodox Church.

Their is no biblical bases fro ordaining women.

There is no biblical basis for ordaining negros.

This is not discrimination. This is the rule of God in His church. People outside the Church can do what they want to do. But us orthodox do not have that choice.

Slavery is one will suppressing another 'will'. This is dysfunctional, in-organic, un-natural and is at the root of hate in the world today. The History and heritage of and entire nation of people were destroyed to build Americas so-called "free country" America is the symbol of racial hatred in the world to this day due to her bazaar and wicked 400 year industry of land grabbing and slavery.

Opposition to the equality of women is one will suppressing another 'will'. This is dysfunctional, in-organic, un-natural and is at the root of hate in the world today. The dignity and humanity of half the population of the wolrd was destroyed to fulfill the sinful desires and lust for power of insecure males. Patriarchal institutions are the symbol of mysogany misogyny in the world to this day due to it's wicked imposition upon the humanity and dignity of half the human race.

Quote
The Head rules the whole body because the hand and all other body parts are designed to look for such rule as an example.

The white man rules the negro and all other races are designed to look for such rule as an example.

Quote
It is easy to question or challenge what we believe or believed. But is is a gross lack of faith to question what is the way of the Lord.

As I posted before we will never see a women deacon and therefore neither priest in the Holy Orthodox Church as long as true orthodoxy is held.

A negro is of a servant race, he can never be a valid deacon and therefore neither a priest in the Holy Orthodox Church as long as true orthodoxy is held.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Was that offensive? I hope so because it was intended to be...of course, I made no argument you didn't, I simply replaced race for gender. My theological arguments are just as sound as yours (by which I, of course, mean a bunch of nonsense); so, logically speaking, if your arguments are adequate to deny ordination to women, mine are adequate to deny ordination to non-whites.

Accepting able bodied Muslim men into any Christian home and giving them kitchen privileges could have deadly consequences as the Muslims would then have access to kitchen knives.

This situation happened in Kosovo when the Albanian Muslim refugees came in, killed the Serbian occupants, and then took over Serbian homes and lands. Do we have such short memories of the Serbian massacres?

May their memory be eternal.


Again, do we have such short memories?

No, I'm not ignoring any history between those two. I'm very much aware of their history. I just don't want their history derailing this otherwise lighthearted thread.

I think distorting the sense of what someone is making the effort to write about (and I do not care how elegantly it is done) and making it appear the poster is some sort of idiot is an assault.
But no one is doing any such thing. This thread is for random quotes, and that's what kelly posted here.

The distortion of the truth occurred here where debate should not occur.
And no debate would have occurred had Maria ignored kelly's quote of her or at least played along with the joke.

If you disagree start a thread.
Nothing is stopping you from doing the same.

Now to everyone involved: This thread, located as it is on Other Topics, is intended to be nothing more than an idle pastime.

Anglicans also have much respect for the teachings of the Early Church Fathers and the practices of the Early Church. So…so much for the saying from Newman that “to be deep in history is to cease being Protestant…”

With respect, my church wouldn't be able to distinguish between an Early Church Father, The Lord of the Rings and Max Lucado.

A Muslim family that I deliver papers to has put up an evergreen wreath decorated with snowmen and the phrase "Happy Holidays". Should I be offended? Or fear for the neighbourhood? Or protest that infidels are taking over my heritage? Or bake cookies and take some over?

When I was a wee one, a Pakistani grad student who was working with my dad at Bell labs used to cook delicious Indian food with lots of curry. I miss those days.

did he use a knife?

More to the point, was maria a virgin when her dad allowed her to eat with that spicy Mohammedan sex maniac?
The whole forum is Mor. We're emanations of his godlike mind.
