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.

I like how there's a guy sitting at the piano/organ. Is he providing the orchestral score for the game?
It's common knowledge that you secretly want to be born in early 17th century Russia.  As a serf or a royal, I know not.  Chances are serf.

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.
If you cannot remember everything, instead of everything, I beg you, remember this without fail, that not to share our own wealth with the poor is theft from the poor and deprivation of their means of life; we do not possess our own wealth but theirs.  If we have this attitude, we will certainly offer our money; and by nourishing Christ in poverty here and laying up great profit hereafter, we will be able to attain the good things which are to come. - St. John Chrysostom
