Don't date ****** (inappropriate word for black people), they'll probably end up robbing you.

Racism is a sickness, and this kind of talk is truly anti-Christian and vile. Please try to work to do a better job at controlling your own posting behavior. Such disgusting attitudes and 'advice' as displayed here are unacceptable. Please pray and seek spiritual counsel, lest you further wound the confession you claim in the eyes of others (who are, in case you have forgotten, created equal to you and equally beloved children of God), and your own soul by harboring such hatred and bigotry.

Amen!

I'm not sure what to say right now, except that I am very sorry for what I said about black people yesterday. It was rude, insulting, and totally untrue. I'm not even sure why I said that. I will be more artful of what I say and the words I use. That's all I can think of to say right now.

From a comedic tome (I found on my dad's bookshelf), written by an ex-Roman Catholic priest-turned-Protestant:

Quote
Best of all is for Protestant ministers to preach without ceasing to their people:  "Do not marry a Catholic.Do not permit yourself to fall in love with a Catholic, for love is unreasoning and lures its victims into thinking that they are exceptions to all rules and experiences.  Fear of the threats of the Church is greater than the love which a Roman Catholic girl or boy may profess for you.  This fear will win out in the end and rob you of your love and happiness as well as the eternal salvation of yourself and your unborn children. [author's emphasis]

Lehmann, L. H. "The Problems of Mixed Marriages." Out of the Labyrinth. Chino, CA: Chick Publications, 1982. 202. Print.

There you have it, folks.  If you marry a Roman Catholic, or even think of dating them, you're going to hell.
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.

How can your eternal salvation be robbed if you are part of the elect and predestined to be saved? Also, what are you supposed to do if you are predestined by God the marry a Catholic?  The plot thickens.  I think a Chick tract is needed to sort all this out.

Man, what a crazy night last night! Ok so I was at the bar and this really attractive woman came up and sat beside me. Now orthonorm and opus were in another part of the bar at the time. Anyway, so we start talking, and she's really attractive, but something about her was just off, like you could tell she was a little crazy. So I said I had to get back to my friends, and she was like "What's wrong, tiger? Don't you want this?" and I was like "Um, you're very attractive, but..." and she said "let me ask you something" and I said "ok..." and she said "It's my face, isn't it? You think I'm a butterface!" and I tried to assure her that that was not the case at all, that she had a very pretty face, but she wouldn't listen. Then she started crying, and I tried to put my arm around her to console her and she snapped at me like a wild beast "don't touch me you pathetic wretch!"  

Well, suffice to say I was taken aback, but she apologized immediately and said she didn't know what came over her. I said it was ok, that maybe she should go home and get some sleep. And she said "let me ask you another question, a very private question," and I said ok. So she said "Imagine your ultimate fantasy girl. It has to be someone real though. Like an actress. Who is she?" I was a bit confused, but she pressed me several times to name someone. So finally I said "I dunno, Emmanuelle Chriqui I guess". She said "Ahh" and then just sat there with a serious look on her face. Then she leaned in and whispered to me: "If I chopped her head off, and took her skin, and wore it like a mask over my head, would you then make love to me? Would I then be pretty enough for you?"

That was about all I could take? I jumped back and said "what are you talking about? are you crazy?" and she looked at me longingly and said "what is it that you want? just tell me what you want!" and she started clawing at me and sort of growling. Just then orthonorm and opus saw what was going on and they hurriedly pushed me out of the bar, and we raced to the car as this wild woman chased us, screaming "I need to feel like you love me! Make me feel like a woman!"  Well, we finally got to the car and she came up and started banging on the window, and we were saying "go go go" and she was spitting and hissing, but finally norm got the car started and we sped away. Whew, it was close, I'll tell ya!

Did you ever go back to that bar?

Backsliding, man, backsliding.

Although the Methodists, Anglicans, and Lutherans(?) don't believe in predestination, at least not as part of their "traditional" theologies".

As for my love life, it is still nonexistent. Hopefully, I'll be able to find someone once I get back to school this August.

Zarathustra's Tarantula has not.
Quote from: Fr. Thomas Hopko, dystopian parable of the prodigal son
...you can imagine so-called healing services of the pigpen. The books that could be written, you know: Life in the Pigpen. How to Cope in the Pigpen. Being Happy in the Pigpen. Surviving in the Pigpen. And then there could be counselling, for people who feel unhappy in the pigpen, to try to get them to come to terms with the pigpen, and to accept the pigpen.

You had to go to the old unofficial oc.net chat room if you wanted the good advices. The stuff in this thread was drivel meant to confuse people, lest the truth epiphanize, and in being thus epiphanized the masses should actualize it forthwith, to the ruin of their souls and bodies.

I don't think I know how to talk to XX-chromosomed people, actually I never sorted it out. Except for my family, older ladies, a certain dear friend, and, in some miraculous way, her. Orthonorm is gone, but I wanted to share that. I just told this to an XX-chromosomed friend and maybe she'll join the list, I'm really relieved right now.

I'm mostly very satisfied with my social life, so there's nothing to be sad about. But this is bothersome sometimes, most XX's I know think I'm some kind of introvert, while it's quite the contrary.

Yeah, It's slowly getting easier for me to speak to the opposite sex. But of course, on my terms and my time.
This profile is defunct as of 11/8/2017. I created it before Orthodoxy, and have used it after Orthodoxy.

I reject all that I wrote that isn't in accordance with the teachings of the Orthodox Church. Also, my posts reflect my opinions (present or former) and nothing else.

I will likely lurk on this forum under a different name.

Here we go... long story short, we met on the internet, her family is extremely traditional and she's younger. I'll have to ask her parents permission to have a relationship and obviously tell them how we met, but they don't trust "internet people" at all. How can I make this sound better? Lying is not an option, I just want to find a way that it'll be easier for her parents to accept it and trust me.

I could do that... I can give them a good first impression, but they must at least allow me a first impression. I must found a good way for them to mind me before they actually meet me.

She is, but we're both too young for this sum to work. We have a three and a half years gap.

Don't date ****** (inappropriate word for black people), they'll probably end up robbing you.

Racism is a sickness, and this kind of talk is truly anti-Christian and vile. Please try to work to do a better job at controlling your own posting behavior. Such disgusting attitudes and 'advice' as displayed here are unacceptable. Please pray and seek spiritual counsel, lest you further wound the confession you claim in the eyes of others (who are, in case you have forgotten, created equal to you and equally beloved children of God), and your own soul by harboring such hatred and bigotry.

Amen!

I don't think random body parts will make me OK, buddy. I need my little counterpart.

How can a man show care properly without seeming to pamper, let alone losing dominance?

Being a gentleman doesn't mean being passive.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Oh no! Blake just called. He said he "knew about me and Sarah"!?  I was like "what are you talking about bro?" and he said "I hacked into her side of the computer and looked at her facebook messages, and I saw how you two were cheating together" and I was like "No way cuz, it's just a misunderstanding" and he got really mad and left. He lives like 2 hours away so I don't think he's gonna come here to confront me, but what do I do? Just when I meet Monika I have this Sarah thing happen. Just my luck! I'm going to call him in the morning and try to reason with him. I don't want anyone hurt!

Man, Blake is a hacker!

Probably in the wrong thread if you're looking for dog training tips.

Quote from: Seekingtrue
Yes we who are far from sainthood we can recognize a living saint and I'm talking from personal experience.Yes they are gentle soo gentle it can not be described it is like gentleness and humility in one and also they have this light this energy it's beyond words...and when you are near them you feel ecstatic and very happy
