The merkin photo Wiki had up looked like the hair on one of these:



I know. And I had the sudden urge to chant an Akathist to make it go away.

Really? 'Cause I have the sudden urge to go play Bingo.

I'm drinking night coffee. It's the best coffee because you get to enjoy it without the desperation of morning coffee.

Randomly: Have you ever considered quoting Usher in your Mor collection? "If you really want Mor, scream it out loooudeerrrr..." you know.

If I have coffee after dusk, I will be up until dawn but useless after 2am.  So...

I have never tried soy milk of any kind. And I'm so caffeine insensitive that I pretty much drink coffee constantly... all day.

Mbarakhtho at b'neshe!

Try Chocolate Silk.  I was dead against the idea of soy milk (warning: language), but this stuff is good.  The only better chocolate milk I've had came from a small farm with organic, grass fed, yoga practicing cows or something crazy like that.

I like gay people. For the most part, I've never had to worry about an LGBT person stabbing me in the back or being a jerk. Call them "sexual deviants" all you fellows want, but whether or not that's true, they're good people for the most part. An LGBT person IME will NEVER judge, insult, or treat you harshly--heck, they're used to being on the receiving end of judgement and harassment on a daily basis. Very sincere people for the most part.

Finally, someone who says something nice. And yes, they are, Alpo. Even from a chaste LGB's perspective, I speak from experience.

The one I had a dinner with today said that he had never encountered any verbal abuse. We weren't talking about sexual orientation but he didn't seem like he was afraid of being openly gay and happy about it.

He's an exception, then. Most people I know are highly closeted, and terrified of someone outside the family finding out they're gay. God knows my own bisexuality was painful enough to admit to my priest, and I haven't even done anything, nor do I plan to.

I'm sorry to hear that. Angry and/or disgusted reactions of our close ones or anyone else for that matter has very little nothing to do with Christianity.

Perhaps my country is easier for LGB people. I can't imagine that coming out of the closet would arouse much negative feelings. In fact, on the contrary. But I don't know how things are in the US.

It's only bc religious people are more timid on average so they feel intimidated by all sorts of things.


Did I miss the "sarcastic" smiley? Because most religious folks around here are anything but timid. Loud, obnoxious and in your face, more likely. Maybe it's different where you are.

He said he lives in the gayborhood. When was the last time an Episcopalian was loud, obnoxious, or in your face?

You all don't know gayz.

I can't tell you the amount of cat fights I had to squash in my time. They might be not as globally judgmental, if you get my drift, but to the man? Please.

Yeah...this is a hell of a lot closer to the truth...

Certainly not how you think they are in your country.  I'm actually acquainted with a couple of different people who were kicked out of their parents homes after they came out, for example.

Was hoping for some crazy costumes like that other video either you or someone linked.

A sacred Pascha is revealed to us, a new and holy Pascha...

Speaking of gay celebrations, youtube linked to this.

I wonder if those bacchants are charismatic Poor Clares?

supposedly?  Well that's the same thing as fact, right?  Give me EVIDENCE! 

Even if Seraphim of Sarov did pray the rosary, that does not mean it was practiced or  commonplace in the Orthodox world.

So much for their claim to be members of the Orthodox Church.

Judging from the pictures, they have a real hard on for Putin.

Did she carry it to Church in the nude?

I'd trust the baba, but not this ilk. It's not the only mistake they made: seems they must be in the same Latvian Orthodox church that Costanza joined.

"Our wall calendars represent the very first organized global effort against homophobia in the Orthodox Church," the source wrote. "Unfortunately, it might not quickly change the official Orthodox church position, but at least it can encourage people (believers or not) to reflect and realize that their speech/ideas no longer fit modern society in the year 2013."
rather odd how they think blasphemy is going to help their cause.

I thought this kind of religious intimidation by way of irreverence in the most vulgar ways possible was strictly an american thing? 

Religious intimidation?

What site are you reading? Not I clicked on the link or anything.

Still, I am quite certain you are wrong.
It's only bc religious people are more timid on average so they feel intimidated by all sorts of things.

Did she carry it to Church in the nude?
i doubt anybody would want to see her in the nude at her age.
that wasn't my question.  I didn't want to see the sanctimonious guy nude either.

The Idea

Historical fiction book during the years leading up to 1054 AD, when the unfortunate events occurred between the Pope and the Patriarch of Constantinople that ultimately led to the schism between the Catholic Church and Greek Orthodox.

The Plot

Make the events come alive by creating a Latin-speaking Roman man and a Greek-speaking (Byzantine) woman (the protagonists) who grow to love each other and together try to stop the schism from occurring. “Quick, tackle Cardinal Humbert before he gets to the Hagia Sophia!”

Please tell me Kirk Cameron will be the male lead and the production will be called Abelard and Evdokia
How about instead a Greek speaking Roman man and a Latin speaking Italian woman?

I know a Greek restaurant where you can get Chinese food cooked by a Mexican.

No, it was the first photo the article showed.  I didn't even have to go into the slide show to see him.

One look at the title is enough for me NOT to look at it!
