Remember, Remember, the 11th of September

Paraphrasing the English ditty which is in reference to Guy Fawkes’ Day and commemorates the Gunpowder Plot (“Remember, remember, the 5th of November…”), let us as well remember the atrocity which was perpetrated on us by evil men 10 years ago today.

Let us never forget that we are in a struggle with Islamic fascism, pure and simple. Let us pray for the fallen and the redemption of those who believe in this evil creed.


  1. Let us also remember that we are living in a country that is more and more determined to push God out of the picture in so many places. God is a gentleman and will not intrude where He is not wanted. We don’t realize the protection He has given us in the past.

    Also we can compare the destruction of the tower of Babel by God and the fall of the twin towers and yes, even the Pentagon. When we put our trust in money and arms and not in God, well. read the OT to see what happens.
    God is a jealous God.

    • Jeff, you’re right. However the excision of God from America is not something that happened because we wanted it to, it happened because our religious elites have acquiesced with their secularist overlords in doing this. On the other hand, those denominations which take God seriously (i.e. the Orthodox), have devolved into ethnic nostalgia cults, hence further pushing the seriousness of belief in God down the tubes.

      On the one hand, you have a religious academy which has operated under the principle of higher criticism of the Bible and rationalism (making God extraneous) while on the other you have ethnic cults who are more interested in turf battles (which makes God ridiculous). If one has only two choices –i.e. God being either extraneous or ridiculous–then He becomes beside the point.

    • Dn. Nicholas says

      Yes, Jeff… I heard someone say today that the most tragic thing about 9-11 was what those buildings (a “marvel of engineering”) meant symbolically for this nation….

  2. (L)et us as well remember the atrocity which was perpetrated on us by evil men 10 years ago today.

    Agreed… Far too many wish to simply ‘move on’.

    Let us never forget that we are in a struggle with Islamic fascism, pure and simple. Let us pray for the fallen and the redemption of those who believe in this evil creed.

    Where is “Islamic fascism” in America? It is nonexistent!

    Don’t get me wrong… I have no love for Islam but it seems to me that our struggle is not against Muslims, “but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.”

    We struggle against the omnipresent lies, from the father of lies and from his earthly children.

    I agree wholeheartedly that we should pray for Muslims as we pray for all that are outside of His Church… but we should also be very careful not to bear false-witness against them.

    The truth is that Islamists had absolutely nothing to do with the attacks perpetrated on Americans on 9/11.

    Put simply – the Muslims were framed for 9/11. False-witness has been borne against them, and those in Afghanistan and Iraq who have fallen victim to Western ‘retaliation’ for 9/11 have been wholly innocent.

    The attacks of 9/11 were false-flag attacks, designed beforehand to put the blame on Arabs & Muslims.

    The attacks of 9/11 were perpetrated by the so-called ‘Jews’, the ‘Jewish state’, and their paid minions.

    Lord have mercy!

    • Somebody has been reading “Protocols of Zion” again, or whatever that farce is called. (Sigh. . .)

    The name and calling of procurer was so odious both to the ancient laws and to those of the Empire that many legal enactments have been published against persons committing offences of this description. We, Ourselves, have already promulgated a constitution increasing the penalties against those who are guilty of such wicked deeds, and We have, in addition, supplied by other laws what Our predecessors omitted, and have by no means lost sight of this matter, for We have very recently been informed of the evil consequences which such traffic has caused in this great city. We are also aware that certain persons are accustomed to employ cruel and odious means for the purpose of obtaining wealth; making a practice of travelling through the provinces and other places, in order to deceive young girls by promising them clothes, and, after having obtained possession of them, they bring them to this Most Fortunate City, place them in their houses, provide them with wretched food and clothing, and deliver them up to others for the purpose of debauchery, they themselves taking the entire profit of this wretched trade obtained from the bodies of their victims; and that they also draw up contracts by means of which the girls aforesaid are compelled to continue their wicked criminal life as long as those who have possession of them may desire. Some of them, indeed, require sureties to be furnished, and to such an extent are their illegal acts carried, that they are perpetrated in almost all this Imperial City, as well as in the countries beyond seas; and (what is worse) houses of this kind exist in close proximity to holy places and religious establishments; and at the present time this wickedness is so prevalent that any persons who wish to withdraw these unhappy girls from the life that they are leading, and legally marry them, are not permitted to do so. Some of these wretches are so unprincipled as to deliver over to corruption girls who have not yet reached their tenth year, and in order to ransom these unhappy beings for the purpose of contracting lawful marriage, great sums of money are exacted. Ten thousand means of effecting their ruin exist which are not susceptible of being described in words; and the resulting evil is so great, and the cruelty so widespread that, while it was first confined to the most remote parts of the Capital, it now not only extends over the city itself but also over all its suburbs. Persons informed Us of this condition of affairs some time ago, and recently the Praetors have been directed by Us to make inquiry concerning it, which they have done, and made their reports to Us, and We immediately afterwards deemed it necessary to implore the assistance of God, and purge the city quickly of this iniquity. Just a reminder that old sins are still presented and I believe this is the worst of the sexual sins is to make young girls perform.

  4. Whatever happened to “forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us”? and to remembering and repenting of the fascist aggression against others by our own? See –
    Overthrow part 1
    Overthrow part 2
    … especially “Where’s Osama?”, the lie that started a $multi-Trillion “preemptive strike”, aggressor euphemistic war boondoggle against people already decimated by “embargo”, whose children suffered and died for lack of medications, only to ultimately be bombed to bits as “collateral damage” by those civilly religious “christians” in the white hats who were only trying to save them from their fascist dictator so they could be “liberated” to the wonderful world of “democratic” “freedom” “justice” and “liberty”, etc. etc. etc. (Believe that propaganda, stand on your head – I’ve got oceanfront property for sale in AZ)
    By comparison to the rest of the world, the US has suffered from aggression in the least, barely at all.
    And as Smedley Butler said so long ago “War is a Racket”.
    I’d rather singalong to “What the world needs now, is love sweet Love” than stir the stinky pot of terror remembrance, be it Remember the Alamo, Remember 911 or anything else like that.
    Blood feud payback is the stuff of barbarians, and the “west” the inheritor of barbarian Frankish culture, which shows its ugly head in the vindictive way many to most Americans react when tragedy strikes them instead of them preemptively striking others.
    So much for the Golden Rule of “do unto others as you would have them do unto you”, or for “love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you”, and “turn the other cheek”. Undoubtedly many Americans “christians” think they are manifestly destined to be “exempt” on Judgement Day when it comes to those words of Ioesus Christos.
    “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.” – Matthew 5: 43-48

  5. BTW in Real Christianity, all matter and created beings are created “good”, so there is no such thing as “evil men”, only the Evil One, under whose influence some men come, or in other words, to whose temptation some men “fall” (or succumb), as well as some women and some children.
    Such are not in their right mind, which is the mind of Christ, just as those under the influence of cult leaders have been brainwashed by cultic propaganda.

  6. Michael James Kinsey says

    There are hundreds of vidoes online that can prove to anyone who is intellectually honest that the Islam were only the patsy’s in an attack planned and excuted by elements of the Government of the United States. All anyone need do is take a few hours, and learn how the media fabricated the story for the govenment. One immutable fact, falling objects cannot fall through solid objects,crushing themas fast as they can fall through air. All 3 building fell within a split second of freefall speed. This is impossible. And one was not hit by a plane.

    • George Michalopulos says

      Popular Mechanics wrote an excellent book exposing the myths of the 9/11 Truthers regarding the buildings and how they fell.

    • Archpriest John W. Morris says

      What utter bunk. Al Quida is guilty of 9/11.We of all people should know how downright evil Islam can be. Our Orthodox people have lived under Muslim domination and persecution for centuries. Therefore, we of all people should be the last to fall for the lies of the so called 9/11 truthers. What happened in 9/11 is only one chapter of an effort of Islam to conquer the world that began after the death of the false prophet Mohammad in 632. St. John of Damascus called Islam the “forerunner of the Anti-Christ.”

      • Catherine 9 says

        This is TRAGIC that Orthodox Christians – Catholics too – are SO BADLY BRAINWASHED.

        Fr Morris could not even spell Al-Qaeda which by the wya is a complete fabrication anyway.
        Osama bin Laden died way way before the claimed killing which was the most obvious FAKE.

        No offense, but why can’t clergy and others who are in important roles leading their parishes
        have clear-sighted discernment enough to INVESTIGATE before
        parroting The Approved Party Line Version ?

        Stalinist tactics are here in America today. A woman who tried to run for local office in Texas
        was immediately ridiculed and had to withdraw when she DARED to QUESTION the
        patently obvious FRAUD that this event was ?

        Michael Kinsey, happy namesday to you on the Old Calendar, is valiant to stand up
        and speak truth.

        Too bad there aren’t more like him who are not afraid to step out of march with the mass mentality
        which lulls one to pleasant slumber. But RUDE AWAKENING when Truth comes out.
        Which it will in this case.

        • Archpriest John W. Morris says

          Your comments do not deserve a reply, but it is a disgrace that they are posted on a web site associated with the Orthodox Church. There is no place for such foolishness among intelligent people.

    True, the Byzantines had to deal with fighting Islam from the 7th century to the 15th while the west didn’t become a real threat until the late 11th century except Italy or Sicily,and of course the Ottoman Empire. Westerners also dealt twice with Isalm after they were defeated by Charles Martel and later on in Vienna. Not saiying everyone that followers Islam wants to attack the west but a certain group does.
