Daycare in church sounds kinda blasphemous.
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...

Here is the header from Holy Transfiguration's pamphlet. Perhaps it is in Sanskrit or Malayam writing?:

That is Syriac.

In a thread about Estonians:

Amazing how they never think twice about doing things like this to Holy Christian Images to offend us. But if it was a Muslim Holy image

"Pope" Francis is a liberal Protestant so it is just as well that he should honour his master Martin Luther.

Another thing is I applied to participate in the so-called "Polemical" forum over a month ago, and still I haven't receive a reply. I'm beginning to doubt that this forum actually exists, despite every indication to the contrary.

This forum exists. But, you know, firstly you have to be polite, to be then impolite.

I'm less worried about female deacons and the Holy Council, more worried about pews, organs, the New Calendar and dialogue with the Roman Church.

Maybe that's just me.

It's kind of amusing though. We have only two Poles here and even then they don't seem to get along very well. I  wonder how they managed to set up an autocephalous church to begin with.

I attend a ROCOR parish and all of the women and girls do - the congregation is mostly made up of Soviet-era immigrants with a few Canadian-born of Russian descent.

sexualization  of children everywhere.

Maybe?  Or maybe you've entered into the realm Freudian hyperbole...the options are limitless. The less said without qualification, particularly in an accusative and suspicious tone, the better.

Both these posts:
I think autocephaly was foisted upon them, as in "we don't want to have anything to do with you Poles anymore, take care of yourself from now on."

Wisdom. This is the most sensible principle on imposing autocephaly. Acquire Poland in your heart and thousands around you want to get rid of you.

Since he was filled with the Holy Spirit, I would say no, St. Mark wasn't a whiny, nasty little troll about it...
