Through our good example and faith, we can pray that the next time Mike tries an alcoholic drink, that it will taste like vomit.

Amazing.

I'm busily penning an Akathist for Turning Polish Beer into Puke; I hope to have it approved by the Holy Synod by the end of the week.

I just googled it and heard Celine Dion "sing" it. A little bit of baconator from last week found its way somehow back into my mouth.

I don't know. Maybe something more colorful? Something not so seemingly Byzantine at least.

One of my seniors in seminary is a priest whose good friend (a fellow classmate) is now a Finnish priest.  When he wears a black rasso, hat, and cross, ought I question why he's dressed like an Indian?  Tongue

Why of course. Ethnic disputes are fun. There are even Olympics of Orthodox Unity in Jerusalem every year.

You see much, brastaseptim. Too much. You are banished forthwith from the kingdom of Rohan oc.net, and all its domains, under pain of death.

You presume too much, Asteriktos. And for that, you must pay.

*bell tolls as a procession of monks appears on the forums*
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TkAa3Zdx6Ro
Asteriktos, Member of the OC.net Synod of Protostrators by the grace of his reverence, Father George, banned a member of the honourable Council of High Elders. This is the offence of unrighteous banning and general bad conduct. In that, Asteriktos has rendered no act of contrition or repentance, and is at the moment, at liberty in the land, we do, here and now, separate him from the precious forums, and from the society of all Orthodox Christianity.net users. We exclude him from our Holy Mother Forums and all her threads, moderated, or unmoderated. We declare him excommunicate and anathema. We cast him into the outer darkness. We judge him banned with the devil, and his fallen angels and all the reprobate, to eternal fire and everlasting pain! ANATHEMA! ANATHEMA! ANATHEMA!

*slams candle to the ground*

So be it.

I would have done pretty well with this- up until the point you get to all the Balkan and former USSR states that had the gall to break into different countries after the Iron Curtain fell. Most of those countries broke apart right before I entered high school, and by the time geography came round again we had yet to get updated textbooks Cheesy

Most of the people around here solve this by switching "Soviet" to "Russian". Eastern Europe consists of Greek tourist attractions, Romanian gypsies and different kinds of Russians.

There have always been contraceptive devices and tactics, but it seems to me contraception was the devil's door to bring accepted sodomy and abortion into the world. Those sins have always effected the world, even Christendom, but it was done behind closed doors and abortion was a really grave crime in the past. The Spanish buried doctors who aborted children alive I read. Sodomy was illegal in most Christian countries, but usually not punished with anything more than a fine as long as it was done behind closed doors and kept private, though on the books it was a capital crime. And their were condoms and everything in the good old days so to speak. But when it became accepted then people accepted abortion and sodomy when they used to at least hush it up. Contraception was the devil's door to sodomy, abortion and the sex culture we have today in general in my opinion. As Christians it is important to look into the ethics of the question because like all ethical questions it is not black and white.

My old Russian teacher learned English as a child via BBC broadcasts in the early 1960s, which left her with the most amazing Russian-accented RP I've ever heard. It's almost embarrassing how much nicer nearly every other form of English sounds compared to 'General American', as it's often called in linguistics circles...  Embarrassed
