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.

Well...that's one thing you can do at church.  There might be better ways to spend your time, but there's that.

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.

Apparently, there are back row sitters even for hockey games.
The term planet earth is an innovation which has arisen in recent centuries with the error of heliocentrism.

If one wants to confess a pure doctrine of Orthodoxy, they should be careful not to refer to the earth as a planet, unlike the current Pope as well as Patriarch Kirill and Patriarch Bartholomew, who regularly speak in error when they refer to our planet earth.

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
Are you content with just being an intelligent hairless ape that just cannot resist the primitive urge to fling poo at people passing by,  just like a monkey in the zoo ?

Do you stay in the field and do the work that you accepted, or do you continuously run back into town and give people black eyes, or maybe push them down the stairs, because they don't do what you do ?

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.

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.
