That's because you're a Holy Fool. You serve the God-Appointed Emperor by pointing out his extremely few errors and excesses. You are the schizophrenic backbone of Justinian's symphonia.

Your first task as Holy Fool is to dress in sackcloth and ashes, and beat your breast in front of your local courthouse or capitol building. You may cease as soon as the president resigns and an Orthodox leader replaces him, thus putting an end to the Time of Troubles.

Good. With leftists like him, the more the merrier.

Nope. Now that I'm Orthodox, I have to change my facebook's "political views" box to read "Christian Monarchy--- restoration of Basilev/Tsar [it's Constantinople, not Istanbul]".




I'm having my name changed to Voivod Tod, I'm just waiting for the papers to go through

Awesome.

But my priest told me that I could be an anarchist AND Orthodox at the same time...
That's because you're a Holy Fool. You serve the God-Appointed Emperor by pointing out his extremely few errors and excesses. You are the schizophrenic backbone of Justinian's symphonia.

Your first task as Holy Fool is to dress in sackcloth and ashes, and beat your breast in front of your local courthouse or capitol building. You may cease as soon as the president resigns and an Orthodox leader replaces him, thus putting an end to the Time of Troubles.
Um, I'm with the Greeks.

Nick, you better appreciate this amazing turn that this thread has taken.

I would love to see that icon up close.

Trust me, I think Nick and I are having the same thought right about now.

Don't forget St. Rumwould of Buckingham.

You don't see a lot of Rumwoulds these days. Shame, that.

You'll be in our prayers. It is often a pit stop on the way to Orthodoxy for many.

Nick.....is that a picture of you?  Shocked

I just asked my priest what it would take to become Orthodox and he said, "$100."*


Absolutely in jest.

Sure. As long as you're a monarchial anarchist...

That's how I get away with it. I'm a Communist longing for the restoration of our Tsar here in the Third Moscow.

Your first task as Holy Fool is to dress in sackcloth and ashes, and beat your breast in front of your local courthouse or capitol building.

And never forget to compliment him on his new clothes.
