What a damn shame!

There's something we can agree on.

hey does anyone know what exactly those arabic wrighting says? always wondered.

If I'm not mistaken, they are the names of God.


Wrong!!!  On the Right of the Theotokos it says    (الله )  Allah ,  On the left it says (محمد ) Muhammad, left of that it says (عمر  ) Omar  - I think in the very right it says Abu Bakr also but not sure its not visable.  Its the companions of Muhammad.

The vandals pulled the "S" off of "Sin".  Can't they be arrested for that?

It is obviously a felony, 10 years minimum, more if not a first offense. They will also be tried, and most likely convicted, for the shirts and hair cuts.

Let them be stoned with stones; their blood is upon them. 
Quote from: Fr Alexander Schmemann
The Gospel is quite clear: both saints and sinners love God. "Religious" people do not love him, and whenever they can, they crucify him.

Of course, OC.net is not reflective of the Church, but is rather a surreal bubble. I have visited a lot of different parishes around the world and have listened to many hours of AFR...

This Pentecost, our parish had a visit from Fr. Photius.  :)

He is the world's only ethnically danish Orthodox monk (as far as I know) and has translated the entire Synaxarion into danish.



I wish I could have been there.

No.  Vandalism is all the rage.  That and destruction of church property, twisting of Christian teachings and disruption of services.  It makes them feel so smart.  Just look at the expression of the wise men.  And if you say anything different, you are a hate filled bigot.  Didn't you know?  Equality for "me", not you.
