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.

Once Christ has filled the Cross, it can never be empty again.

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. 
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...

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.

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.
