I recently ran across this amazing video interview on Freedomain Radio. The host, Stefan Molyneaux, interviewed Iben Thranholm, a Danish theologian who is presently on an EU watch list simply because she’s a committed Christian who won’t buy the Neocon line about Russia.
She’s traveled to Russia several times and gotten to see the Christian revival there first-hand. Also, I’m pleasantly pleased by her fidelity to traditional Christianity. I don’t know whether she’s converted to Orthodoxy but listening to her words it wouldn’t surprise me if she had. Regardless, it’s a powerful interview.
On the other hand, please take a look at this Facebook photo of another Christian theologian. This one an Orthodox bishop. Our old friend Metropolitan Savvas Zembillas of Pittsburgh (GOA), decided to pay homage to the Karl Marx during his recent trip to England.
I’d like to think that this was nothing more than visiting a historical site, like going to Westminster and visiting the tomb of Henry VIII. Leaving aside what it may say about the personal politics of His Eminence, I wonder what the Russian Orthodox Church would say about a prelate from the Ecumenical Patriarchate appearing at the grave-site of the false messiah of the twentieth century? A man whose writings created the most evil, totalitarian state in human history? Lest we forget, the Marxist regime decimated the Holy Orthodox Church throughout all of Eastern Europe.
While you think on these things, please take the time to listen to this excellent podcast.
