when I was a Muslim, all I did was argue with Christians.
Have you also tried Druidism? Or that heathenish religion practiced by the brewers of Heather Ale?

I think that you will end up as a Freemason. Thats how all the folks like yourself end up.

Ivan Grozny was officially canonized by Moscow Eparchy.

Complete and utter nonsense. The Moscow Patriarchate has steadfastly refused to canonise Ivan IV, and rightly so.
Not by Patriarchate but by Eparchy. Местночтимый московский святой. My source is Janna Bichevskaya radio programme  where she clearly stated that. It is archived somewhere on her website. Do you suggest that Peoples Artist of Russia Janna Bichevskaya is a liar?

Until you can provide proof that Tsar Ivan IV is listed as a saint in any canonical Orthodox calendar, provide proof of a feast-day appointed for him, and a vigil service written for him, then yes, Janna Bichevskaya is not telling the truth. So she has praised Ivan Grozny in her quasi-religious, nationalistic songs. So what? That hardly means that the man is a saint. Who has the authority to proclaim sainthood - a singer, a revisionist nationalist (like yourself), or the Russian Orthodox Church?

Ah, the refuge of a scoundrel. When you can't win the argument by honest discourse, resort to personal attack. Nice. Very brave. Very manly. Your colors are showing more and more, Simkins.

1. You do not know Gabriel, and, therefore, you have no right to classify him as a person who is "like so-and-so."

2. I agree with LBK above that this is a pure undiluted ad hominem attack that has exactly nothing to do with issues discussed in this thread.

The problem with Simkins is that he is quite eager to "fight dirty", yet, we who disagree with him, and have questioned at length his motives and viewpoints, are obliged (by our own sense of what's right, and through this forum's rules) to "play fair". But "the truth will out", as the old saying goes. Yet again, Simkins has shown his cowardice at answering straight questions challenging his views.

Ask everyone to take a breather and I get called a druid and a freemason?!  Gosh, tough crowd!  :D 





But seriously... please forgive me if I offended anyone.  :)

You should all know by now that Simkins is utterly childish and immature in his crusades re Zoya, revisionist nationalism, and in refusing to answer to any sensible degree any of our legitimate questions. So, Gabriel, to be branded a possible Druid and a potential Freemason by this man should be a badge of courage, not an insult. Small men resort to personal attacks, real men argue their case with dignity and proper reason.  8)
