IU Transgender Community: We Need Feelings-Based Bathrooms

November 26, 2014 in Commentary

Dysfunction-JctThe Radical Feminist student group Stop Kyriarchy (SKY) held a Transgender Policy Panel last week which included such notables as IU-Bloomington Associate Dean of Students Carol McCord.  Event coordinator Morgan Mohr’s event page described it as a way to facilitate a panel discussion about, “legal names on class rosters, pictures on student IDs, and gender divided restrooms…” because those issues might, “…serve as a mechanism of disenfranchisement.”

If SKY sounds familiar, it’s because of how famously their fag demonstration went awry forcing the event organizer to later commit ritual seppuku in front of the university Union Board.  The Transgender Policy Panel went awry, too, but the funniest part is that none of the event organizers or panel participants are aware of this.

The panel could have discussed any number of issues relating to the transgender policy, but the number one concern for the transgender panelists was knowing where they could defecate and feel comfortable with their gender identity. The panel devolved into a shit joke.  That is what the funniest part of the event was. Read the rest of this entry →

An Orthodox Person’s Theological Analysis of Interracial Marriage

November 24, 2014 in Commentary

monks_light_family“If it is a source of joy and glory to men to have children like unto themselves – and it is more agreeable to have begotten an offspring then when the remaining progeny responds to the parent with like lineaments (characteristics)– how much greater is the gladness of God the Father, when any one is so spiritually born that in his acts and praises the divine eminence of race is announced!” –The Treatises of St. Cyprian of Carthage, p 1012.

For centuries it was just assumed that people of differing nationalities would naturally seek a spouse from among their own tribe or ethnos. And until modern times this was by and large the universal practice of both Christians and non-Christians alike. What has changed this in recent times is the ongoing march of Cultural Marxism, aka Political Correctness, in both the education system by day and the television system by night. We are now at the point when the above statements would be taken by most people as an affirmation of racism and hatred. Yet, in the not so distant past these views would have been taken as common sense and natural, as well as, demonstrating patriotic love for one’s own people. Read the rest of this entry →

A Public Response to Metropolitan Savas Zembillas

November 21, 2014 in Commentary

Metropolitan Savas

Metropolitan Savas

His Eminence, Metropolitan Savas Zembillas has seen it necessary and appropriate to speak on behalf of the Church in political matters against Matthew Heimbach, rewarding the virulently anti-Christian (of all denominations) SPLC political organization with a quote for its latest smear piece on our work in general and our comrade Matthew Heimbach in particular, East of Eden.

Metropolitan Savas Zembillas, chairman of the Committee for Church and Society of the Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops of North and Central America, says that they just don’t understand Orthodoxy. According to Savas, it’s not unusual to encounter “converts to Orthodoxy who came in carrying baggage from other jurisdictions, just barely Orthodox, still wet from their chrismations [the ceremony through which one becomes a member of the Orthodox Church]. But they came to Orthodoxy because they imagined it reinforced their deepest held convictions, which were on the spectrum that would lead to Nazism, although not yet there.”

Perhaps to Father’s surprise, the journalist couched his quote in an article essentially accusing the Eastern Orthodox of being guilty of facilitating Nazism, racism, sexism, and all manner of frightful -isms. Had he taken the time to more carefully research the organization before contributing to an attack on Orthodox adherents, he would have perhaps reconsidered lending his impressive title and eminent achievements to such a contemptible organization. He may have also pondered more carefully whether it’s prudent to publicly remark (especially in a presumptuous and hostile manner) about the spiritual growth of a recent Orthodox convert.

Indicting Darren Wilson (or Somebody Very Similar)

November 18, 2014 in Commentary

fitqiqzha4sd0o0pwfiwA Grand Jury is set to return a decision on whether or not to indict Darren Wilson, and the masses are gathering in anticipation of… something.

Protesters and demonstrators might more properly be understood as mob-precursors in this case, but their organizers are publicly declaring that they want their protests to be peaceful whatever the Grand Jury declares.  Michael Brown’s mother, Leslie Mcspadden, is “praying for an indictment” when she ought to be praying that she isn’t sent to jail for alleged felony armed robbery.  Neither of those two predicaments have stopped Mcspadden from taking her show on the road to the United Nations to talk about how her son “was a good boy” and that “he didn’t do nuff’n.”  On the home front, Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon has declared a state of emergency requesting National Guard soldiers to help protect order, police are massing for potential chaos, the protesters have put together their own list of party supplies, and somewhere there’s a key witness whose narrative will collapse on national television.  There’s going to be a hell of a party in Ferguson, and it won’t matter what the Grand Jury decides.

The only consistent thing about the happenings in Ferguson is that all parties involved have been really good at doubling down on injustice.  Did Michael Brown rob a convenience store?  It doesn’t even seem to matter anymore.  You can go read about how a Grand Jury is supposed to work, but we’re just throw all that shit out the window.  We’re obviously on a different spectrum of (in)justice right now.  If it was only some silly law that was broken then we could have cleared this up by now, but we’re talking about some serious business here– a brotha was disrespected by the po-lice.  God FORBID that a brotha lose face over a petty crime, so clearly Michael Brown figured it was a better choice to attack a cop than to just get out of the middle of the road and stop obstructing traffic.

Enter Avalon: Stop Dying for Conservative, Inc.

November 17, 2014 in Commentary

ca9f034e126df36333b8525b67723cc9How long have you been a conservative, and how long has it been a failing game?  They’re called “Republicants” for a reason– it’s because they can’t get anything done.  There’s a way out of those problems, and there’s nothing about it that requires you to sever yourself from the past.  It’s more like the other way around because we require that you bring your past with you to Avalon.

The Avalonian identity is comprised of English-speaking White Americans who’ve returned to their pre-schismatic Christian roots, embracing Orthodox Christianity. It’s an identity and a culture, one which rejects much of Western “progress” in favor of traditional communities and lifestyles dictated by the rhythms of God and ancient Christendom rather than the ideologies and technologies which dominate Modernity.  This is your path away from Conservatism, and Republican “promises.”

Conservatism is a losing a losing game.  It always has been, always will be, and your involvement in a conservative movement isn’t going to make it any better.  No, the best thing you can do if you believe in conservative values is to find someone who isn’t going to betray you on every issue when it really counts.  Republicans have a majority in both houses of congress now?  Cool story, bro.  It won’t make a difference.  Okay, it is unfair of me to say that the Republicans can’t get anything done, because they do a really great job at getting us involved in really big wars.  You know, the ones that our sons and daughters keep getting maimed and killed in?  Those same kids probably took it for granted that they were going off to war for peace, liberty, and the American way, and the reason why is because those 19 and 20 year old kids never knew a time that America wasn’t hard at work making war somewhere else in the world.  Unless you’re any older than 30 you probably don’t remember what America was like between the Gulf War (aka “round one”) and the war in Iraq, let alone the relatively happy time that existed before the Gulf War started in the early 90s.
