Insulting. A good Orthodox friend of mine is a redhead, and he does not engage in such funny business. Another one I know is a priest, whose hair is now sadly grey :(. But he doesn't engage in such funny business either.

Soul-stealing is rarely funny.  But, every once in a while, it is quite hilarious.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

He may be taller than Putin, but he's definitely not manlier than Putin.  Even I'm not manlier than Putin.  I bow down and venerate his alpha-maleness.

The girl on the right isn't exactly showing support.

She's forming the letter "C" with her right hand, a common sign of support for Al-Sisi (whose name is often abbreviated "CC").

If I were him I would insist that my supporters, especially the females, use a different sign. Maybe the C from the YMCA dance thing or something.

I think that's an over-confident appraisal, but your optimism is touching all the same.
