This is ridiculous. It is their country, what else should he say?

No, it is not.

Then what else should they say?

Monk have no "country". If he bishop - he need to pronounce anathema to this satanic event.

That is a ridiculous statement. Many saints were patriots of their native country.

3. As mentioned above, the modern Olympic Games have lost their original purpose. ( Coubertin have special idea(Modern Olympic Game ideology) - and it is WORKING!!!! and what we see today and SATANIC FESTIVAL !!!)

Today, the Olympic Games have been divorced from religion and culture and have been linked to a sterile humanism and to commercial enterprises. ( Humanism - is religion, and every enterprises have commercial part, even trip of patriarch . Olympic Ideology - is religion. )



Church, which has a dynamism, life, has the potential to transform and alter everything and to bring sports back to their true purpose. (??? bring sport back to WHAT purpose ???)

To be a unifying event that can bring together people of different cultures and creeds in a friendly atmosphere of competition?

1. To unify people - is Holly Spirit Job, not Olympic Spirit and satanic pray
2. Friendly war.... and lot of sex after war..... War in day time and orgy by night ...


Olympic game : 5000 athletes come for single reason each : make career do job - win gold. Most of them meet each other 10, 20, 30 100 times before....
Free food and condoms .... do math.

read what holly people say : Do not be the same idolaters, as some of them, it is written, "This people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play" Do not let us commit fornication, as some of them committed, and fell in one day three and twenty thousand. Neither let us tempt Christ, as some of them tempted, and perished by the serpents. 1 Cor 10

Firstly, to claim that all athletes who compete in the Olympics are simoultaneously having a giant collective orgy is irrational speculation, unfair judgement of a huge group of people and besides that just plain stupid.

Secondly, weren't these negative aspects of the Olympics exactly what his eminence said the Church should work on changing?

We could go back to what the Olympics were really like. Five days, nine events, and only Greek men competing starkers. No outfit sponsorships, but hey, the broadcasts would be totally worth it. ;D

Monks die to the world, that's true, but that hasn't hindered many monastic saints from loving their country. And then there is this:
Quote
     “The world is the general name for all the passions. When we wish to call the passions by a common name, we call them the world. But when we wish to distinguish them by their special names, we call them the passions. The passions are the following: love of riches, desire for possessions, bodily pleasure from which comes sexual passion, love of honour which gives rise to envy, lust for power, arrogance and pride of position, the craving to adorn oneself with luxurious clothes and vain ornaments, the itch for human glory which is a source of rancour and resentment, and physical fear. Where these passions cease to be active, there the world is dead; for though living in the flesh, they did not live for the flesh. See for which of these passions you are alive. Then you will know how far you are alive to the world, and how far you are dead to it”

it is clear idol worshiping. (pray start some where at 8 minutes)

No, because even if the actresses participating in the torch lighting ceremony were really worshiping an ancient Greek goddess, and I doubt there were, no one else is.
Does anyone really believe in the ancient Greek gods and goddesses anymore?
According to the Stoics, if you believe that the cosmos is ordered, then you believe in Zeus, since for the Stoics Zeus (whom they also called Logos) was the eternal reason who structures the cosmos.

This thread is silly and unimportant. But if Alive chooses to become a citizen of the San Diego area, I would want him/her to live with me for a while. My reasons deal with another thread that was hurtful and he/she needs to see reality.
If you cannot remember everything, instead of everything, I beg you, remember this without fail, that not to share our own wealth with the poor is theft from the poor and deprivation of their means of life; we do not possess our own wealth but theirs.  If we have this attitude, we will certainly offer our money; and by nourishing Christ in poverty here and laying up great profit hereafter, we will be able to attain the good things which are to come. - St. John Chrysostom

Olympic ideology foundation:


ODE TO SPORT


I.
 
O Sport, pleasure of the Gods,
essence of life, you appeared sud-
denly in the midst of the grey clearing
which writhes with the drudgery of
modern existence, like the radiant
messenger of a past age, when
mankind still smiled. And the glimmer
of dawn lit up the mountain tops and
flecks of light dotted the ground in the
gloomy forests.



II.

O Sport, you are Beauty! You are the
architect of that edifice which is the
human body and which can become
abject or sublime according to whether
it is defiled by vile passions or improved
through healthy exertion. There can be
no beauty without balance and propor-
tion, and you are the peerless master
of both, for you create harmony, you
give movements rhythm, you make
strength graceful and you endow sup-
pleness with power.


Ill.

O Sport, you are Justice! The perfect
equity for which men strive in vain in
their social institutions is your con-
stant companion. No one can jump a
centimetre higher than the height he
can jump, nor run a minute longer
than the length he can run. The limits
of his success are determined solely
by his own physical and moral
strength.


IV.

O Sport, you are Audacity! The
meaning of all muscular effort can be
summed up in the word ‘dare’. What
good are muscles, what is the point
of feeling strong and agile, and why
work to improve one’s agility and
strength, unless it is in order to dare?
But the daring you inspire has noth-
ing in common with the adventurer’s
recklessness in staking everything on
chance. Yours is a prudent, well-con-
sidered audacity.


V.

O Sport, you are Honour! The laurels
you bestow have no value unless
they have been won in absolute fair-
ness and with perfect impartiality. He
who, with some shameful trick,
manages to deceive his fellow com-
petitors feels guilt to his very core
and lives in fear of the ignominious
epithet which shall forever be
attached to his name should his
trickery be discovered.



VI.

O Sport, you are Joy! At your behest,
flesh dances and eyes smile; blood
races abundantly through the arter-
ies. Thoughts stretch out on a
brighter, clearer horizon. To the sor-
rowful you can even bring salutary
diversion from their distress, whilst
the happy you enable fully to savour
their
joie de vivre.



VII.

O Sport, you are Fecundity! You strive
directly and nobly towards perfection
of the race, destroying unhealthy
seed and correcting the flaws which
threaten its essential purity. And you
fill the athlete with a desire to see his
sons grow up agile and strong
around him to take his place in the
arena and, in their turn, carry off the
most glorious trophies.



VIII.

O Sport, you are Progress! To serve
you, a man must improve himself
both physically and spiritually. You
force him to abide by a greater disci-
pline; you demand that he avoid all
excess. You teach him wise rules
which allow him to exert himself with
the maximum of intensity without
compromising his good health.



IX.

O Sport, you are Peace! You promote
happy relations between peoples,
bringing them together in their shared
devotion to a strength which is con-
trolled, organized and self-disci-
plined. From you, the young world-
wide learn self-respect, and thus the
diversity of national qualities
becomes the source of a generous
and friendly rivalry.




PURE SATANIC IDEOLOGY


it is just one of many translation


Original one:


Quote
Georges Hohrod und M. Eschbach
(Pierre Baron de Coubertin)

Ode an den Sport

I.

O Sport, Du Göttergabe, du Lebenselixier!
Der fröhlichen Lichtstrahl wirft in die arbeitsschwere Zeit,
Der du ein Bote bist der längst vergangenen Tage.
Wo die Menschheit lächelte in Jugendlust,
Wo der aufsteigende Sonnengott die Gipfel der Berge rötete
Und scheidend den Hochwald in leuchtende Farben tauchte.


II.

O Sport, Du bist die Schönheit!
Du formst den Körper zu edler Gestalt,
Hältst fern von ihm zerstörende Leidenschaft
Und stählst ihn durch dauernde Übung.
Gibst schöne Harmonie seinen Gliedern
Und gefälligen Rhythmus seinen Bewegungen.
Du verbindest Grazie mit Kraft
Und Geschmeidigkeit mit Stärke.


III

O Sport, Du bist die Gerechtigkeit!
Vergeblich ringt der Mensch nach Billigkeit und Recht
In allen sozialen Einrichtungen;
Er findet beide nur bei Dir.
Um keinen Zoll vermag der Springer seinen Sprung zu höhen,
Nicht um Minuten die Dauer seines Laufs.
Die Kraft des Leibes und des Willens Spannung ganz allein
Bestimmen die Grenzen seiner Leistung.


IV

O Sport, Du bist der Mut!
Es gibt nur eine Losung für die Kraft der Muskeln und des Willens
Und die heisst: wagen!
Der wahre Mut ist nicht tolkühne unbesonnene Verwegenheit
Ist nur, Vertrauen auf die erworb?ne Kraft,
Dem Zufall überläßt sich nur der freche Spieler;
Dein Wagen ist Berechnung, ist Verdienst!


V

O Sport, Du bist die Ehre!
Von Dir gespendet hat Lob und Zeugnis vollen Wert,
Weil nur in wahrer Redlichkeit gewonnen.
Unlautrer Wettbewerb und unerlaubter Kunstgriff
Sind streng verpönt.
Und mit Verachtung würde der bestraft,
Der nur mit List und Täuschung die Palme sich erringen wollte.


VI

O Sport, Du bist die Freude!
Sobald Dein Ruf ertönt, erbebt der Leib in Wonne,
Das Auge glänzt und stürmisch Blut durchströmt die Adern,
Klar fliegen die Gedanken ätherwärts
Die Seele ist gelöst von jedem Druck
Und jubelt laut im Vollgenuß des Lebens.


VII

O Sport, Du bist die Fruchtbarkeit!
Auf zielbewußten Wegen veredelst Du des Menschen Rasse,
Weißt kranke Keime zu ersticken und Flecken auszuwischen,
Die ihre Reinheit zu vergiften drohen.
Und kraftgeschwellt hegt der Athlet Verlangen,
Sich Söhne zu erzeugen, die fähig sind wie er,
Ruhmvollen Lorbeer zu erringen.


VIII

O Sport, Du bist der Fortschritt!
Wer Deinem Dienste würdig sich will zeigen,
Muß fortgesetzt an Leib und Seele sich verbessern,
Muß jedes Übermaß vermeiden;
Und seine Leistungen zu steigern stets bestrebt sein,
Und doch das höchste Gut Gesundheit sich bewahren,
Des alten Spruches eingedenk:
«Gesunde Seele will in gesundem Körper wohnen».


IX

O Sport, Du bist der Friede!
Du schlingst ein Band um Völker,
Die sich als Brüder fühlen in gemeinsamer Pflege
Der Kraft, der Ordnung und der Selbstbeherrschung.
Durch Dich lernt Jugend selbst sich achten,
Und auch Charakter Eigenschaften anderer Völker
Schätzen und bewerten.
Sich gegenseitig messen, übertreffen, das ist das Ziel
Ein Wettstreit in dem Frieden.

FWIW, I do see some things in the poem that should cause right-believing Christians great consternation. I'm thinking particularly of the rather eugenic tone of the one stanza (Stanza VII) that speaks of sport as a means to purifying the human race.

All the poem says is that he likes sports a lot.
FWIW, I do see some things in the poem that should cause right-believing Christians great consternation. I'm thinking particularly of the rather eugenic tone of the one stanza (Stanza VII) that speaks of sport as a means to purifying the human race.

Hmm.. okay, point taken.

This morning, we had both a baptism as well as starting the Triodion, so the homily emphasized our need to be persistent in our repentance on our way to our goal: life in God. Father used the athletes in the Olympics as the simile, that our persistence in growing in Christ is to be as the Olympians are persistence in growing in sport.

A side tangent, but it made me remember this thread.

Can we at least agree the prayers to Apollo in the lighting of the flame is something that should be criticized

again, here are some videos of it

Russian olympics flame lighting

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bhXKPViyAFg

London olympics flame lighting

http://bcove.me/706peqbu

in that video you can even hear her say "Apollon" Apollo, so it is not a conspiracy theory

Olympic Anthem (IOC Official "pray"  ) :


    O Ancient immortal Spirit, pure father
    Of beauty, of greatness and of truth,
    Descend, reveal yourself and flash like lightning here,
    within the glory of your own earth and sky.
     
    At running and at wrestling and at throwing,
    Shine in the momentum of noble contests,
    And crown with the unfading branch
    And make the body worthy and ironlike. (twice)
     
    Plains, mountains and seas glow with you
    Like a white-and-purple great temple,
    And hurries at the temple here, your pilgrim, (twice)
    O Ancient immortal Spirit, every nation. (twice)

Not really, no. This isn't a prayer service or theological dialogue, it's a sporting event, and most likely has participants from nearly every race, creed/religion, nationality, etc.  :police:

EDIT--On second thought, maybe I shouldn't joke, at least in this thread. My point is, it's not a religious event, it's a sporting event. If people happen to have beliefs that differ from mine, or pray or whatever, then I don't have a problem with that. Just like I wouldn't have a problem if some non-Christian players wanted to say some prayers before a high school football game for the safety of the players. I may not agree with what they're saying, but why would I need to silence them?

I do too.  I hadn't watched the Olympics since Nadia Comenici scored a 10.0 in gymnastics.

That was a great run by Meseret.  

Random aside, the fathers of Nadia and Meseret are both mechanics.

.."70 percent to 75 percent of Olympians" are having sex in the Village in their free time.

"There's a lot of sex going on," she quipped....



Okay, but isn't that going on everywhere [edit: many places in this post-Christian era] anyway? 

Stopping the Olympics won't stop that.   You can't control the behavior of the entire population of the planet with an anathema.

As far as I know, God gave us free will.  Some of us make better use of that than others.



Well the idea is that it's not such a wholesome event with role models involved like it 'should be'.

It's a state sponsored, darwinian style event where participants who should be marriedve kids are instead hooking up and going through 100,000 comdoms which seems insane. All the athletes are liberal and part of state religion (humanism). There's no honor at all. No modesty. 15 year old figure skater with her butt hanging out infront of everyone.

I know a lot of men here like this and think its great, but its a heavy curse because we're so over exposed to all this. What should get us gitty and excited doesnt anymore. Normal sexual things arent enough. A girl cant just have nice hair. She has to have extensions, and dont forget the spray tan.

What ever happened to looking at a girls legs and blushing and getting turned on. Good luck these days. Too much exposure will curse your libido which is mostly mental. A lot if it isnt mens fault as it happens slowely over time and is a product from things like the olympics and then now their calling it a big orgy with 100,000 condoms? Doesnt surprise me. This is what Secular Humanism promotes.
The above post is intended for discussion purposes and is comprised of my personal opinion.
