Awaiting Real Change

According to the official patriarchia.ru site, last Wednesday Bishop Savva (Tutunov), the French-born Bishop of Zelenograd who is in charge of the administrative affairs of the Moscow Patriarchate, spoke of President’s Biden’s supposed intention to stop interfering in other countries’ affairs.

Although on 31 August the President was speaking of the failure of the USA to conquer Afghanistan, Bishop Savva was thinking more of the US interference in the affairs of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church. The Bishop said that the President’s statement did not show a sincere desire to put right the damage caused by those interventions. Bishop Savva continued:

‘Here we cannot see any good, repentance or putting right of the evil done by the interventions…The US projects for the ‘Orthodox Church in the Ukraine’ and the schism brought into the Orthodox Church now, alas, even if its overseas patrons reject it (which is doubtful) will still exist, even if it is decomposing. Overcoming this evil, if that is God’s will, will take time. But the consequences for a great many real people will not go away’, said the Bishop on his Telegram channel. Bishop Savva remarked that a public renunciation of ‘the destructive projects’ of the USA is not to be expected.

 

Does Anyone Believe Western Lies Any More?

The meeting on Bright Monday of the anti-Christian Antony Blinken, the US secretary of state, and the anti-Christian Dominic Raab, the UK foreign secretary, affirmed their commitment to Western imperialism, threats and meddling against the peoples of Russia, China, Iran and anyone else who is willing to stand up to their asset-stripping aggression and powermongering.

Searching desperately for support, both foreign politicians of their much-weakened countries called on other G7 countries (all financially and morally bankrupt like themselves) to attack those who do not share Western atheist values and its imperialism. Notably, they also want Australia, South Korea, India and South Africa to join their tiny and elitist G7 club in order to threaten and bully sovereign states. Western brinkmanship and sabre-rattling on the borders of Russia and warships sent into the Black Sea and the South China Sea, CIA and GCHQ cyber-attacks and mass misinformation on the part of the venal Western media, such as the notorious British State BBC propaganda mouthpiece, and the multiple assassinations of black people and civil disorder in the USA, were all justified.

The usual ritual threats were also made against China, accusing it of repression at home and aggression abroad. Clearly, the two anti-Christians were talking about themselves, since both their countries are notorious for invading other lands and committing genocides in countries like Serbia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and Syria, and this only in the last thirty years! The US and the UK have for generations told the world that they are beacons of ‘freedom and democracy’. This is clearly untrue.

This lie has never stopped them from invading and overthrowing sovereign states around the world, assassinating democratically-elected leaders and attempting to wipe out their peoples, like the Nazis. (Most recently, they tried to overthrow and assassinate the Belarussian leader, Lukashenko). As a result, over the generations, vassal gangsters in Latin America, Asia, Africa and Eastern Europe, including the Ukraine, who swore feudal fidelity to their US lords, or else fanatical Islamists, have taken over countries, which had been ruined and impoverished by Western aggression.

However, even Blinken said that the USA would not start a war with China. This is because it is too bankrupt and too frightened. As Blinken said, diplomatically, ‘a military conflict between the world’s two biggest economies does not serve either of their interests’. The notorious warmonger Raab added that London and Washington see “eye-to-eye” on China’s resistance to their imperialism and aggression and would try to get China to bankrupt itself through issues such as climate change, even though China’s pollution problem is caused by its manufacture of goods for the Western world.

Blinken even insisted, quite ridiculously, that the US was not cutting and running in Afghanistan, saying: “We have made it absolutely clear that as we withdraw our forces from Afghanistan we will protect them and take decisive action in response to any attacks. We have also been clear our forces are drawing down (= running away), but we are not disengaging. We intend to be very active diplomatically in trying to advance a political settlement between the Afghan government and the Taliban.” This is clearly a lie, as everybody knows that the US lost the war it began there twenty years ago, even though it has tried for years to negotiate with Afghan patriots, just as it lost the wars it started in Vietnam, Iraq and the Ukraine and had to run away.

All these lost wars have killed millions of innocent people, cost the USA trillions of dollars and led to it being hated around the world. Equally hypocritically, Blinken said: “We have to take a stand on the arbitrary detention for political purposes. I would hope that with time and effort countries should establish a norm that this practice is unacceptable.” Was he talking about the notorious US torture camp in Guantanamo Bay or CIA torture facilities in Lithuania and its other Eastern European colonies?

The hypocrisy of Blinken and Raab reminds us of the hypocrisy 500 years ago, when the Russian leader, Ivan IV, a man under whose rule between 2,000 and 4,000 Western-supported traitors to Russia died, was dubbed ‘The Terrible’ by Western leaders of the time and still today. Yet the same Western leaders, like the monstrous Henry VIII and later Elizabeth I in England, were murdering hundreds of thousands, as prescribed by the Italian strategist Macchiavelli. Then Western European society was patterned by one long series of ‘religious wars’, massacres, inquisitions, torture, hanging, drawing and quartering, witch-hunts and later monstrous ‘colonial’ genocides. The greatest of these genocides was the blood-soaked founding of the USA, still today notorious for its cowboy violence.

Why have Western leaders always slandered Ivan IV? Simply because he protected his people from organised Western violence and asserted Christian values as far as he could despite the traitors. Today, the USA, the UK and the EU persecute and blacken all who resist its ‘Western values’ of immorality and murder and tell lies about other countries in exactly the same way as 500 years ago. Does anyone still believe them? Or are they, like Dr Goebbels in 1945, just talking to themselves? Berlin is about to fall. Have they not noticed?

 

 

 

 

Don’t Mess With the Church

In December 2018 the US government established a pseudo-Church for its Ukrainian satellite through its puppet Patriarch Bartholomew in Istanbul. Since then all has gone wrong for the evildoers.

On the one hand, having handed over the Cathedral of the Wisdom of God in Kiev to schismatics, Patriarch Bartholomew then lost his own Cathedral of the Wisdom of God in Istanbul to Muslims. Thus, he managed to create a schism throughout the Church of God, cutting himself off from the Church and isolating himself with schismatics in other countries, notably in Greece, Africa and Cyprus. He has only himself to blame. Actions have consequences. Here are the results of treating the Church as a tool for the sake of all kinds of erroneous isms, from nationalism to modernism, from ritualism to ecumenism. His name will go down in history, together with those of Arius and Nestorius.

On the other hand, having endorsed the anti-Christian regime in the Ukraine, the Western world has been attacked by Covid-19. Although relatively minor on the world scale – well over 50 million people in the world die every year and only just over two million, mainly very elderly and already in poor health, have died with Covid – the panic that has ensued has astonished. The mighty Western world, armed to the teeth with nuclear bombs which it alone has used, has bankrupted itself, laid low by a microscopic virus. In the same way, in 701 BC the Assyrian Army was mysteriously destroyed overnight while it besieged Jerusalem. How are the mighty fallen….

The Western country which has suffered the most from Covid-19 has been the USA, with over 400,000 deaths. After creating division in the Church of God, the US administration is now faced with political chaos and street violence, with unparalleled scenes, resulting in a ‘democratic’ Washington which is patrolled by 25,000 ‘National Guardsmen’. Nearly 75 million Americans feel cheated and unrepresented. Instead of complaining, nobody seems to have thought of repenting. The USA created schism in the Church of God, it is now paying the price. The Ukrainian schism has shown who is who in the Church, revealing who is who and the faith or lack of faith of each.

And Covid-19 has done the same in the world, revealing who is who and the faith or lack of faith of each. 2021 will be a year of change, of unexpected events, a time to pay for past mistakes.

The Dogmatic Essence of the Ukrainian Crisis

Question:

At present the Patriarchates of Constantinople and Moscow no longer concelebrate because of Constantinople’s decision to set up a self-governing Church in the Ukraine, which has for centuries been Russian Orthodox canonical territory. This schism has split the whole Orthodox Church into two. But so what? What does a squabble about land and territory matter? The two Patriarchates should both be out there, converting the 7+ billion people of the world who are not Orthodox. Constantinople’s politicking in the Ukraine is absurd, but so is the Russian breaking of communion with Constantinople, which is excessive by far and makes the Orthodox Church into a laughing-stock. Surely you agree?

Answer:

I agree that we should be out there, converting the 7+ billion, together with the Church Outside Russia in the Americas, Oceania and Western Europe and the Russian Orthodox Exarchates of Western Europe and South-East Asia, without any flag-waving nationalism and condemnation of Greeks or Non-Greeks. But converting them to what? To the US State Department? To Ukrainian nationalism? To Uniatism?

My point is that this is not a squabble about land and territory, but about who is the Head of the Orthodox Church: Mike Pompeo, Geoffrey Pyatt and the rest of the CIA, or to Christ our God? In other words, who does the Church belong to? To various artificial States, formed a few decades ago by Communist tyrants and nationalist empires that have not existed for centuries, or to Christ?

As for the Russian reaction, what are you supposed to do when someone embraces you, smiling at you and at the same time stabbing you in the back? Stand and continue to be embraced and be stabbed in the back again and again and again, in North America, in Finland, in Poland, in Western Europe, in Estonia and in the Ukraine? The Russian Church had only one choice, to separate itself from those who have already separated themselves from the Church and Her Saints and cease communion with them until they repent.

Soon there will be a Church Council in the Jordan, called by the Patriarchate of Jerusalem where the very first Church Council took place in c. AD 50. There the representatives of 200 million Orthodox will condemn the schism. The fearful representatives of 5 million are going to sit on the fence. Will the paid representatives of the other 15 million persist in their schism?

To Arius and Nestorius – Anathema!

To Monothelite Emperors – Anathema!

To Barlaam the Calabrian – Anathema!

To Chauvinists who put their State and Race above Christ – Anathema!

To Those who Refuse to Obey the Canons and Create Disunity in the Church – Anathema!

What is Happening in Montenegro?

I don’t know if you’ve heard anything about the current goings-on in Montenegro since the corrupt, NATO-supported mafia regime there adopted a law which aims to confiscate the property of the canonical Orthodox Church. Naturally, the law has a ridiculous Orwellian name (something like “the law on freedom of religion”), and is presented as an honest attempt on the part of the Montenegrin government to regulate State-Church relations in the country. In fact, however, the law was clearly created to confiscate the property (including churches and monasteries) belonging to the Orthodox Church in Montenegro which, unlike other major religious denominations in the country, was never invited to any kind of official discussion or dialogue with relevant government institutions etc responsible for creating this law. The most controversial part of the law states (in essence) that all property belonging to the Church since before 1918 for which there is no adequate evidence that it belonged to the Church and not the State will be confiscated by the State. The false premise here is that the State then supposedly owned all Church land, which by the way is completely false. Government functionaries have obviously denied this, but it is the logical consequence of the law. Several members of the leading party (i.e. members of the Montenegrin mafia) have made pronunciations about the Serbian Orthodox Church being a “relic of the past” which needs to “die out”, and have said that perhaps some churches could, in the future, be used for whatever the government finds useful, such as cafés, pastry shops or casinos (!).
The current president (read: dictator) of Montenegro, who has been in power for around thirty years, and who is himself unbaptized and an atheist, has recently declared that it is his intention to “recreate” the “autocephalous” (sic) “Montenegrin Orthodox Church”. This is obvious historical revisionism and political manipulation (which is I’m sure you understand very well), the same kind that we’ve already seen in the Ukraine and other places. This fake “Church” has no members (other than perhaps a handful of government bureaucrats) and is led by a former priest (defrocked and excommunicated by the Patriarch of Constantinople) named Miraš Dedeić.
Naturally, the faithful have been protesting this whole development for years (the first draft of the law was finished in 2015) and since the law was passed about a week ago there have been huge gatherings – prayer services, processions and demonstrations all across Montenegro. Over 100,000 are believed to have participated the day before yesterday alone, and more still during the previous week. Despite these massive protests (in a country, by the way, which has a population of only around 600,000) and a large gathering on December 21 in Nikšić where tens of thousands gathered despite the bad weather and the fact that the government blocked the roads to Republika Srpska and Serbia, hardly any attention has been paid to this anywhere. Obviously the media in Serbia, Montenegro and the surrounding countries have reported all this, along with some alternative media outlets, but hardly a word from foreign media. If one sixth of the population of, say, the United Kingdom, protested against something – don’t you think that might be mentioned in the news? Perhaps more than a few times even?
Today the looming war with Iran has naturally crowded out all other news, but even before that there was hardly any mention of these recent developments in Montenegro. I suppose the diabolical mainstream media only report the things that serve their agenda, and spin everything to suit their narrative.
Anyway, I just thought I’d send you this message and a few links to some relevant articles and videos. I didn’t even get into the unbelievably condescending interview given to the Serbian media outlet Kurir by Patriarch Bartholomew where he inferred that some of the Serbian bishops are “ungrateful children” whom the “Mother Church” (i.e. Constantinople) nevertheless “loves”. Can you imagine? He also went on to bash the Russian Orthodox Church for its supposedly terrible actions in the Ukraine etc. The article in Serbian is linked below, Google Translate usually does an okay job translating from Serbian to English.
In any case, what can I say? Please pray for me and for us all, for the Church and all the faithful who are suffering across the world. Times are clearly not that good right now.
And have a wonderful and peaceful Christmas!

Western Tragedy and Christian Victory

After the collapse of Communism 30 years ago, the Western elite, obsessed by its control-freak fantasy of global supremacy, launched an extraordinarily aggressive campaign against the Non-Western 85% of the world, hoping to enslave it to its militant secularism. Thus, in the last 30 years it has constantly trampled on freedom and democracy worldwide, launching two illegal wars against Iraq, invading Afghanistan, promoting its version of ‘free trade’ but imposing illegal sanctions against free trade on states such as China, Russia, Venezuela, Iran, North Korea and Turkey, implementing violent ‘regime change’ in many countries, committing genocide, creating millions of refugees by creating chaos through proxy wars, as in Iraq, Syria, Libya and the Yemen, sending troops to West Africa, threatening independent countries with invasion and launching cyber-attacks against all competitors, while hypocritically accusing them of doing the same.

The Russian Federation has been a particular victim of Western aggression. Here the West has for example given refuge to billionaire oligarch thieves of Russian public assets, financed violent demonstrations by marginal political groups against its democratically elected government, arranged false flag propaganda assassinations of Russian citizens abroad (the Litvinenko and Skripal cases, which only the very naïve actually believe were carried out by Russia), overthrew the pro-Russian Ukrainian government by violence and so started a bloody civil war there, rejected the decision of the vast majority of citizens of the Crimea to return to Russia by democratic referendum after sixty years of captivity, set up puppet governments in countries surrounding Russia and sent them NATO troops and arms to strut along Russian borders and, more recently, relaunched its self-bankrupting nuclear arms race against Russia, treacherously breaking all its past treaties and promises.

More recently still it has, through blackmail, bribery and flattery of provincial Greek nationalist vanity, created a split in the 220-million strong Orthodox Church. This was done by separating over 100 bishops of the dying Greek Church in Istanbul, known as Constantinople or the Phanar, as well as the elderly Archbishop of Athens, from communion with the multinational Russian Orthodox Church, by having the Phanar create a Church schism in the Ukraine. Using its local ambassadors, the West then tried to spread this schism to other Local Orthodox Churches, especially in Greece, Serbia, Montenegro and Georgia. Indeed, in an unprecedented case in the latter Church a homosexual metropolitan has just been defrocked for trying to poison its saintly Patriarch. Thus, the West operates through threatening faithful Christians and buying ‘Phanarodox’ careerists, ecumenists, racists and homosexuals, always using the worst of the worst for its base purposes.

The latter anti-zealots are used to fight against and persecute lovers of Orthodox Christianity, especially ascetic monks, sincere married clergy and faithful laypeople. Therefore, in this Church schism, as in many other matters, Western aggression is failing, for although man proposes, God disposes. In the Ukraine, bankrupted by its civil war which the US-installed regime started against the peoples of this recently-invented country (1), the miserable little schism has come to nothing. And this despite the Nazi-style violence, threats and intimidation which have been used by the State authorities against the faithful over and over again. Moreover, most of the 900 Orthodox bishops outside Istanbul have refused to have anything to do with its corruption. And the French Rue Daru Archbishop Jean and 60 parishes in France, the Netherlands and England, have just quit the bullying of the Phanariots for the joyful embrace of their Russian Mother-Church and canonicity.

This has further strengthened the Russian Orthodox Exarchate of Western Europe, as it moves towards unity, gathering all elements together in order to recreate the Local Church here in place of its present spiritual vacuum. As for the Russian Orthodox Exarchate of South-East Asia, which stretches from Korea to Thailand through Laos and Vietnam to Singapore and the successful missions in Taiwan and the Philippines, it too has just been strengthened through the many parishes of the Indonesian mission. These have just been transferred from the jurisdiction of the basically English-speaking Church Outside Russia to the well-financed and well-organized Exarchate. Thus, we see how the tragedy of secularist Western aggression has been marked by the victory of God’s Church, in West and East. Indeed, man does propose, but God does dispose, and the gates of hell shall not prevail. Victory belongs to Christ, not to petty racist nationalism, bribery, threats and perversion.

We now look more confidently to the future. The present schism, provoked by the US State Department through its Greek puppets in Istanbul and Ukrainian puppets in Kiev is the death rattle of the Phanar before its end. As it finally dies out some 570 years after it lost its significance in 1453, its parishes in the USA, Australia and Great Britain emptying, as elderly immigrants die out, having failed to pass on the Faith to the local generations, the Russian Orthodox Church, uniting Eurasia, faces a huge challenge. From the Western European Exarchate to the South-East Asian Exarchate the need for mission is enormous. Outside the Eurasian landmass, where well over five billion people live, it can also help the Patriarchate of Alexandria in its mission of converting a billion Africans and help the New-York-based Russian Orthodox Church Abroad in its mission of converting the billion who live in the largely English, Spanish and Portuguese-speaking New World of the Americas and Oceania.

May Thy will be done, O Lord.

 

Note:

  1. Invented as an idea by the Hapsburgs for divide and rule purposes at the end of the 19th century, the anti-historical concept of the ‘Ukraine’ (simply meaning ‘border lands’) was implemented by three blood-soaked 20th century dictators, Lenin, Stalin and Khushchov. These anti-Russian mass murderers stole most of the territory of ‘the Ukraine’ from surrounding countries, all the while keenly supported by the Western Powers. Thus, the Ukrainian flag is derived from that of 19th century Lower Austria and its trident emblem comes from a cattle brand used in the same area at the time. The current Ukrainian President, a Jewish comedian, cannot even hold a conversation in Ukrainian.

The Russian Orthodox Church and the Slanders of Western Hypocrisy

The current favourite anti-Russian Orthodox slander of the US-controlled Western media (obviously, this includes the State-run BBC locally) is that the Russian Orthodox Church is the lackey of the Russian government, notably of President Putin. Here they love to misquote the words of Patriarch Kyrill, that President Putin as a leader is a miracle. Clearly, he is a miracle, after ideologues like Lenin, Stalin, Khrushchov, Gorbachov or the shameful drunkard Yeltsin, all peddling their anti-Christian, Western ideologies, after their vicious and barbaric persecution of the Church, the greatest anywhere in human history. However, to conclude from this that President Putin meddles in Church affairs or that members of the Church hierarchy are his lackeys is so absurd that one can only marvel at the sheer brainwashed ignorance (or else lying cunning) of Western politicians and journalists.

Why do they peddle such lies? The short answer is that they are so stupid or else so venal that they believe their own anti-Christian propaganda. But let us look at the problem in more detail.

The Western Powers have always tried to meddle in the affairs of the Church of God. A whole quarter of the Orthodox Church in Western Europe (it was then at most a quarter) was interfered with and taken over by the secularist Western elite who wanted all power for themselves. We have only to think of 1054, 1204, the Crusades, the Teutonic Knights, the Inquisition, the Protestants, the 19th century games of the British and French ambassadors with venal patriarchs in Istanbul, the British creation of the Greek Orthodox Church, devious British manipulations in Cyprus, the appointment of German puppet-kings in Greece, Bulgaria and Romania. Their meddling continued into the 20th century (for example in the British-orchestrated Russian ‘Revolution’ (in fact a power-grab by decadent Anglophile and apostate Russian aristocrats), the notorious Meletios Metaksakis in Istanbul and the £100,000 he received for his repulsive anti-Church activities in the 1920s. In 1948 these operations were taken over by the CIA from bankrupt Britain.

Today, after the fall of the Western ideology of Communism, we have the extraordinary manipulations by the USA of Istanbul. Here money exchanged hands ($25 million?) in support of US interference in the affairs in the Ukrainian Orthodox Church through the local US-appointed oligarch-gangster puppet Poroshenko. What is the Ukraine to the CIA? Only a banana republic that is not in Latin America, but placed more strategically, there where nuclear missiles can be stationed on the Russian border and aimed at Moscow. However, the USA meddles wherever possible. It not only appoints patriarchs of Constantinople, but also of Bucharest and perhaps elsewhere. It holds ‘conversations’ with the Archbishop of Athens, putting great political pressure on him, it tries to implement a schism in the Patriarchate of Antioch between Damascus and Beirut, tries to reinforce the schisms in Macedonia (just as their friend the Croat Communist Tito did) and in Montenegro, not to mention in puppet-Estonia and Moldova. To suggest that the Russian State meddles in the affairs of the Russian Orthodox Church and that its bishops are lackeys of the Russian government is the most extraordinary hypocrisy. Only the most ignorant or brainwashed could possibly believe this lie.

There is a picture of the atheist President Macron standing amid the ruins of Notre Dame. It is a picture that symbolizes contemporary post-Christian Europe. Amid the firs of atheism, Western Europe stands amid the ruins of the vestiges of its Orthodoxy. Sadly, unless the West repents, Notre Dame is only the beginning. God’s punishment awaits. Not just in spiritually, morally and financially bankrupt Western Europe, but in the USA as well. An explosion in Yellowstone? Devastating hurricanes and floods on the Carribean or Atlantic coast? An earthquake or tidal wave along the Pacific? We wish it on no-one. May God spare the United States and Western Europe from any catastrophe. But it will happen – unless there is repentance, because when people turn their backs on God, refusing His help, He can no longer defend them from the activities of the demons and all their satanic glee. Be warned.
