This whole thing just disgusts me, and makes me want to crawl into a hole far away from TV, newspapers, internet, etc. It's just all so STUPID.
I realize there God has a plan for us. We are here to suffer for him in one way or another, be it by physical torture at some religious extemist's hand, or living our lives biting our tongues and praying "
Oh Lord and master of my life, Take from the the spirit of sloth, despair, lust of power and idle talk. Give rather the spirit of HUMILITY, chastity, patience and love to thy servant. Yea oh Lord and King, grant me to see MY OWN transgressions and not to judge my brothers, For thou art blessed unto ages of ages. Amen!" not just during Great Lent, but every time you are presented with such an chance to blast people.
Chrisitianity, and particularly Orthodoxy, as the religion of Truth, is going to be more persecuted than any other religion. We took this burden upon ourselves at our baptism. We can't just be Christian to our fellow Orthodox, we have to be Christian to EVERYBODY. We are supposedly the religion of Love. If we are not willing to tolerate a little media hazing, or the media ignoring us (I'm not saying be inactive, don't get me wrong), or being badmouthed, we are in the wrong religion.
Anyway, I think I am going to retreat back into my hangover-induced fog now.
I am myself a violent pacafist, I think anyone who wants to start a war should be beaten over the head with a heavy stick.
