Or better yet: "hears monasteries in Moldova owned slaves" "Ascribes it to the "western captivity" "

Or even better yet:

"Reads Augustin's posts on OC.net"

"Presents himself in chains to the Brotherhood of St. Herman of Alaska"

I think a separate meme needs to be created for the monarchist/ right-wing strain of convert zealotry.

As someone who has been in the SCA and Markland (medieval re-creation groups), he looks perfectly normal to me.  :)

The chain mail he's wearing looks like a decent byrnie, too and the helm's nice.
