Instead of embarrassing  yourself by phrasing and rephrasing ad-homs why don't you answer these four questions?

1. Has or hasn't nationalism and ethnic pride caused the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia to schism?

2. Has or hasn't nationalism and ethnic pride caused a myriad schisms in Ukraine?

3. Is or isn't the association of Orthodoxy with shady despots helpful when you want to make disciples of all nations?

4. Has or hasn't Christ mandated to pray for everyone, and enemies in particular?

Now you can go on fuming about how reason and sense are evil and western.

With pleasure, provided:
1) You clarify what of this is of importance for your personal salvation as a recent convert, or clarify the relevance of talkin this with you in the case you haven't converted to Orthodoxy.
2) Define the "nationalism" and "ethnic pride".
3) Refer to the "shady despots" the Orthodox has allegedly been associated with.

Besides, the reason and sense are eastern. It is the twist of them that is western and evil.

Someone is claiming that people of Novorossiya aren't Orthodox, since they haven't been paralyzed against the forces of Antichrist as the westerners thought they were supposed to. Instead, they took the arms to defend their families, their homes and their lives.

What "people of Novorossiya"? Last time I checked, the pro-Moscow fighters there were mostly made up of Russian and Chechen mercenaries. There's only one side fighting to defend "their families, their homes and their lives" and it isn't the one with Igor Strelkov (who is from Moscow and has no ties to the region anyway).

Every Orthodox "has ties" with the region, those from Moscow particularly.

Well, you and me may not have the same definition of "Orthodox".

Which, like everything else Hayab USA says, is a mix of lies and nonsense.

Alright Hayab, if you want to play stupid, that's fine too. Have it your way. As soon as you grow up and want to discuss things like a man you can come back. Until then I'll just ignore you.

Have a nice day.

Note to everyone else: don't feed the troll.
