Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

You can tell from the colorful thing on the wall that this is not an isolated event, but rather that NBC is an integral part of their religion.

Mor no longer posts on OCNet.  He follows threads, posts his responses daily, occasionally starts threads, and responds to private messages when and as he wants.  But he really isn't around anymore.

I like how there's a guy sitting at the piano/organ. Is he providing the orchestral score for the game?

This was during the Olympics, and in Canada, iirc  so Seems about normal, Hockey=Religion For most of Canada,  at least that's what I've heard
Even satan himself can appear as an Angel of the Lord, and do good works in His name, to distract you from the path of True Righteousness

I do not know about a site with specific stats, but the first map may be inaccurate in part, and I suspect the second map is a troll map, and at the very least is completely inaccurate.
http://www.census.gov/prod/2013pubs/acs-22.pdf

Here is a rather interesting report done by the US Census Bureau. There isn't a whole lot of detailed info per state, but there is quite a bit on the whole country.



Huh. Well maybe I'm wrong then!  :-[
Learn from that.

Old believers:
women carrying the banners and the lanterns  :o I thought they're more conservative :P


At my parish it's rather unthinkable (not counting carrying icons by women and very often by children becasue it's considered as another stuff)

I realize, that you realize, how time consuming it is to memorize the spelling of Asteriktos.

In any case I read the "about section" for the monastery.  You must be an expert. Why do they use the term Sergianist Bosom? I confess that I have never seen a Russ Myers film but this is what comes to mind when I read this. I will leave it at that rather than embarrass myself further.
