If it walks, talks and quacks like a duck, then its a duck. What part of that don’t you understand?

I just checked . . . these are there.

Did you read every. single. page of the essays? Did you look at a.l.l. the reference links? If you haven’t done so and you’re calling all this malarkey, well, bless your heart.
And I can assure you Joel isn’t a Republican. Sheesh. Talk about stereotyping with a broad brush.

Logan46, you’re patently wrong about there never being slavery in England. If you’d bothered to google “blacks in england in the 16th century”, on the first page of the search results, one finds:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_British (evidence of blacks going back to Roman Britain)
http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/pathways/blackhistory/early_times/elizabeth.htm – Queen Elizabeth I issued a proclamation to deport blacks from England in 1596.

This cease fire is not going to last. Have you forgotten all those “cease fires” back in the 1990s? This “cease fire” will just allow Hamas more time to stock up on those rockets.

And how has Christianity done in Europe?
Pretty soon, if things don’t change, it will be Europistan.

The best way to starve a troll is, not to give the troll any shred of attention at all. Because really, that is what a troll is after – attention. I refuse to even google for the URL of that blog so as to not push it up further in Google SEO.

Quite a large church in Guatemala and southern Mexico, isn’t it? Now, 500,000 divided by 20,000 equals how many “OCA” jurisdictions?

I have known him for many years and he is the least arrogant and the most down-to-earth person I’ve ever known. My husband and he share a love of coffee, and my husband keeps talking about setting up a coffee house as a business.
But, well, Dr. Kalvesmaki would rather spend his time learning Syriac and hunting down sources on Evagrius Ponticus, and thinking about number symbology in early Christianity. Waaaaayyy over my pay level.
I’m sure he would graciously sit down with you over a cup of fresh-roasted, brewed coffee or a bottle of micro-brew and have a nice chat. That is, if you’re brave enough to do this.

I just want to alert you all to essays that Joel Kalvesmaki will be releasing this week. Please visit daily:

That’s why I haven’t participated on that forum for years – it’s become a place full of venom and spite. I just let the digests pile up in my email reader and clean these out periodically. God bless the priests from a certain jurisdiction that keep up the good fight, but I’ve got better things to do with my time.

We here in DC metro area are safe, thanks be to God. In my household we never lost power. Still, my thoughts are with those affected up north of us. Just a while ago I learned that my sister’s BFF’s coworker’s parents (in Far Rockaway Beach) have been missing since the storm and the fire/police departments have been unable to help, and they have not turned up at any local shelters so far. I pray that they are safe and well somewhere.

We’re fine here – still have power, fortunately.

My husband is really disgusted by the whole thing. He was in the Army and is a Gulf War I vet. And in fact, he was asked to try out for the Rangers (he ultimately declined, but this would have been perfect for him). There’s no way he would have left these guys alone to fight on their own.

Wow, that’s really interesting! I may or may not be related to the Lees, on the other side. But I know for certain that one of my ancestors is listed as being a servant at one of the Lee plantation in what is now Reston.

Well, can you tell them to please check out those vans that are taking Somali immigrants to certain poll stations somewhere in Ohio?

For once, I’m glad there wasn’t an ASL interpreter present when he made that comment about the genealogy.

Link, please. Not all of us are familiar with ROCOR websites.
Edited to add this: I assume this is what you’re talking about: http://www.synod.com/synod/2012/20121022_londonconfdocument.html
In that case . . . English translation, please?

I’m not getting this with either Safari or Firefox. It could be that the security certificate had expired and they needed to renew it, or there was a hiccup somewhere. Nothing sinister there (now, the management of the website could be a whole lot better, but thats a different story).

There is a parish very near my home that is in a very nice, historical church building. However, because of where they are now and current zoning requirements, they would have to move to a nearby plot with enough space for parking. So, instead, they spin off mission parishes.

Sunlight is the best disinfectant. Especially when there are statues of law involved.

And pay for SEO to get the “rape” detached from “Metropolitan Jonah” in the search engines. That’s one of the steps towards cleaning up unsubstantiated references on the web.

I’ve seen videos of services in Old Believers’ churches and what they do is VERY different.
Here’s an example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gW_ITFh7yDk
I love the way things are done in Russian liturgical practice, but I appreciate the liturgical practices in the other churches that you named.

I likely won’t be there to witness this, should this happen, so you’ll have to ask someone else. Plus, the National Cathedral is just about 5 minutes up the street, literally within walking distance.

I think you should still ask your priest, nonetheless.

I’ve also read of cases where the person was born as one sex, and then somehow, the body started producing hormones (around puberty) that caused it to change to another sex. There is a medical term for this condition. But this is a very, very, very rare case. I might have saved a link to that blog somewhere on my hard drive but I’m not positive; it was years ago that I read through that blog where she documented her case (she was born a male).

What is FTM?

David, haven’t you been paying attention? The problem isn’t that we don’t have what the Church has taught us, the problem is that we’re NOT getting proper guidance from those who should be giving it, keeping in mind what the Church has taught us.
» Posted By Lola J. Lee Beno On October 17, 2012 @ 10:35 pm
I’m with you on this. This is why we need crystal clear teachings, not dancing around the issue.

Back To Stats Page
Which is why we need to clean up the canonical situation. It would be more difficult for nutcases to do jurisdiction-hopping if the administrative layer were compressed, you know.
