Go eat a hamburger or something.  Yes, I am aware it's Friday.

In that case, eat two.  With bacon. 

Edited to add an ingredient.

Maybe this would go quicker if you just told us who hasn't apostatised?

No, I didn't forget it.  Such things are forbidden.  While in Acts 10.9-16, God declared to St Peter that we need not obey the kosher laws regarding meat, in Acts 15.22-29, the apostles, with the Holy Spirit, declared that the Gentiles were to abstain from eating blood.  

WHO'S THE TRUE ORTHODOX NOW?!?!  :P

When I was in seminary, I skipped Liturgy at my church and went to the chapel instead (that day I needed a Liturgy that'd get me out earlier than 2pm).  Afterwards, I went to a diner and ate my first full English breakfast, including black pudding.  What a lovely meal that was!  And then I read Acts 15.  :(

Incognito, I am glad that you are still with us and still have time for repentance. The last video you posted had me wondering.

This isn't really related to the video, but I will be more interested in a greater form of apostasy in the future.
