The amount of harassment and insults I recently have been receiving from both of you makes me happy. If you multiply by -1 as you are non-Chalcedonians outside the Church it's even better than prayer.

O Holy Passion Bearer Mike of the Bad Attitude, Pray For Us!

But seriously, no one is "harassing" you, Mr. Sensitive.  For years, you've interjected nasty, cynical, dismissive and sarcastic comments into our discussions - mostly pointing out, as you have above, that you think we're not part of the Church or whatever - and I for one think the best response to those sort of posts is good-natured, well-intentioned humor.  I don't want to get into a nasty tit-for-tat with you, and I'm not going to just ignore your bile.  Unlike some others I could name, I'm not going in for the "Oh, that's just our Mike!" thing, or the "Oh, you know how those blunt but lovable Eastern Europeans are!  No filter!  And Americans are just so overly sensitive!"  Bull plop.  If you can be abrasive and snide and attempt to tell people off all the time, I don't have to shrug and shake my head and say, "Who else but Mike?"



I can respond to your silliness with more silliness if I want.

If possible, I'd like to know who the fathers are.  Someone asked me a while ago sending me this icon and I never got a chance to get an answer or ask some people.

They are subtitled, aren't they? So what's the problem exactly?

I guess I'm not as literate as you are ;)

I thought people are taught anything about iconography prior to ordination. My bad.

Lol what?

Hey, all you kids out there!  Welcome to another episode of The Cabbage-Breathed Cynic Pisses on Everything!  I'm your host, Al Watts.  We invite those of you at home to play along with our dumbfounded studio audience.  Are you ready?  Okay, what exactly is wrong with the exchange above?

a. Mina is Coptic and the lettering on the icon is Syriac.  Why would anyone assume he would be able to read it?
b. Mina is not an ordained clergyman
c. Even if he were, there is no reason an ordained Coptic clergyman would be taught to read Syriac
d. Films and television programs are "subtitled"; icons are "inscribed"
e. All of the above and lots, lots more that we can't get into here.

For those of you playing at home, write down your answers - in Syriac - on the back of an icon card and mail them to:

TCBCPOE
P.O. Box 525
Hillwood, WA 09246

Imitate Sts Flavian and Proterius and take your beatings manfully.

Mathematics note: multiplying something by -1 makes it negative.  So 5 x -1 == -5

We should make a WPM quotable quotes to commemorate the greatest genius that ever walked the shadow of the valley of OCnet.
"May the Lord our God remember in His kingdom all Holy Catholic Apostolic Church, which heralds the Word of Truth and fearlessly offers and distributes the Holy Oblation despite human deficiencies and persecutions moved by the powers of this world, in all time and unto the ages of ages."

Indeed! He was a loving, humble man who never sought the limelight.  Rather, the depth of his message and the strength of his character caused others to seek him out unbidden in order that they might drink of the font of his genuine wisdom.  People quoted him, wrote songs about him, and even based their life upon his teachings without him having to make the slightest effort towards forced and vainglorious self-promotion.

I had to read this twice, as the description could just as easily be applied to Gebre himself.

The dread Pantocrator...is also "Christouli mou", (my little Christ), who really listens when you run in to your neighborhood church on the way to work to cry and light a candle because your daughter is in trouble at school. The untouchable and all-holy Mother of God is also "Panayitsa mou", who really will take your part before the court of heaven because, just like your own mom, she’ll always stick up for her children, no matter how badly they’ve behaved.

Two times that I knew I needed a trim:

1) Caught it on fire during liturgy

2) Drove home from work with my window open and the wind caught it and poked me in the eye.

Does anyone really believe the ingredients used in McDonald's products are sufficiently genuine to fall into "fasting" and "non-fasting" categories?  Frankly, they seem fake enough to be considered "fasting".

I await the hagiography describing your zeal even as an infant. Until then, happy birthday :)

As an infant, ZZ abstained from the breast, choosing only to suck on a rag dipped in olive oil twice a day; on fasting days, she refrained from the rag and even from pooping, for lo, she did not want to communicate oil in any form when she should abstain.

Which was even before Christ's birth, kinda poking a big hole in the "assumed divinity after humanity" nonsense espoused earlier.
Yes, it's so obvious. That is why neither he nor I actually meant that.

Sorry dude, trying to get clever often begets heresy.

Your wording was so unfortunate that there's no way around misunderstanding whatever point has been obscured by your incomprehensible sophistry.

Do some Calvinists owe you money or something? 

Whom will your vitriol victimize tomorrow? 

Beebert,

You will find a lot of common ground with scamandrius if your vitriol victimises scamandrius' parish priest.  Just a humble suggestion.

Criticism vs vitriol. Learn the difference.

I'll have to study someone else's posts.

Who cares about St Paul the Apostle, the guy who used to persecute Christ and His Church before becoming one if the greatest martyr for His sake? I mean, we just need to listen to BCsenior to have THE interpretation as we are all wrong as Paul was... Paul was just making observations on that judaic sect, thats all. But we now have BCsenior to decipher and expose God's message that was hidden from us by that man-made organization that is the awful Orthodox Church! Thank God for BCsenior!

Perhaps for a kontakion of the Blessed BCsenior would sound like:

He was greater than the greatest, O light bearer of the true knowledge of our Christ.
Thicker than the holy blood and teachings of the martyrs, he taught us with his golden mouth.
that he contains the uncontainable in his bosom to put to shame the 2000 years of wisdom of the Church.
Oh holy preacher, you brought us the light and the truth like the Savior did, like a prophet of old,
while we were dead in the darkness of the tomb of the evil Holy Catholic Orthodox Church!

Oh Holy BCsenior, greater art thou than all the Saints and the blood of the Martyrs of Christ!
Oh Holy Apostle, St. John, pray for us

Here is some reasons I don't want to have children:

1. My wife will be very ugly with big belly.
2. She will love somebody else than only me as it must be.
3. She will take care of somebody else than only me as it must be.
4. She will not spend 100% of her time for me. /I don't want my wife to leave me for even 5 minutes!/
5. I don't want to have somebody from my blood I want to be only me. Or blood of my wife. Our blood must be together and only we must be alive from our blood.
6. She will talk to somebody else than only me as it must be!

I must say I won't marry her if she have been talked to some other male in her all life.
The whole forum is Mor. We're emanations of his godlike mind.

Actually, Mor's face shineth like the Sun.

Dude!
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.

Charles,

I don't know if you've been following some of the other threads here, but you strike me as being sort of the Catholic version of BCSenior.

I will be ignoring those here whom I feel are too
radically spiritually deceived to receive spiritual Truth.
Blessed Nazarius practiced the ascetic life. His clothes were tattered. He wore his shoes without removing them for six years.

Sounds like you got lost in the forest you planted.  Next time, invest in breadcrumbs.

Excellent.
What is "Excellent"?



Notice how it says "OO Wins" in the upper left hand corner.  Meanwhile,

1.  There is an idol at extreme left, looks like a Hindu deity or some other Eastern religion's god
2.  The window with the metal grate on the right looks like the number one, like "one nature"
3.  Next to that are two hanging meat hooks, and one is definitely superior to the other, like how the divinity swallows the humanity
4.  The hanging meat hooks are probably for Armenian liturgical animal sacrifices
5.  No one gets that muscular without some sort of drug use.  Are those green patches on the ground marijuana?
"Il ne faut imaginer Dieu ni trop bon, ni méchant. La justice est entre l'excès de la clémence et la cruauté, ainsi que les peines finies sont entre l'impunité et les peines éternelles." - Denise Diderot, Pensées philosophiques 1746
