Permalink Zelensky deprives Orthodox priests of citizenship

Kiev has targeted the clerics for allegedly supporting Russia | Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky has stripped 13 priests within the canonical Ukrainian Orthodox Church (UOC) of the country’s citizenship, the Levy Bereg (Left Bank) newspaper reported on Saturday, citing government sources.  The presidential decree targeting the clerics was purportedly signed by Zelensky in late December but has not been published officially, since it contains the personal data of the priests whose citizenship was being revoked.  Later in the day, however, the newspaper circulated a list of the affected individuals. For instance, it includes Ionafan, the metropolitan bishop of the Tulchin diocese in Vinnitsa Region, who was targeted by the Ukrainian Security Service (SBU) last October.  The domestic security agency accused the cleric of sowing religious discord and supporting Russia, claiming it had seized incriminating materials, including various “printed pro-Russian content and propaganda literature.” The list also includes his subordinate vicar, Bishop Sergey, who allegedly serves as a “caretaker” for Ionafan’s property of dubious origin, the newspaper noted.


Permalink FACTBOX: Orthodox Christian world celebrates Christmas

Until 1917, Christmas had been one of the official holidays in the Russian Empire. It had not been celebrated in Russia until the 1990s | On January 7, Orthodox Christians around the world celebrate one of the most important holidays: the Nativity of Jesus. Celebration date: On January 7, Christmas is celebrated by the Russian, Georgian, Jerusalemite, Polish and Serbian Orthodox churches, the Athos monasteries in Greece, as well as the Eastern Catholic Church and the Old Believers. The Roman Catholic, Protestant and ten Orthodox churches (including the Church of Antioch, the Church of Alexandria, the Church of Cyprus, the Bulgarian Church, and others) mark the date earlier, on December 25. The reason is different denominations adhere to different calendars: Julian or Gregorian. Christmas tradition in Russia: The holiday is preceded by a strict 40-day fast, which lasts from November 28 to January 6. On Christmas Eve, the festive liturgy is served in all churches. At the end of the service, a lighted candle, symbolizing the Star of Bethlehem, is brought out and placed in the middle of the church. Christmas kicks off a 12-day season commonly referred to as Christmastide or Yuletide. According to the Orthodox canons, believers should offer prayers glorifying Jesus Christ. In the folk tradition, Christmastide has always been a time of festivities, outdoor games and performances by mummers, fortune-telling, as well as caroling. The Christmas period ends with the feast of the Epiphany on January 19.

Permalink New Paganism has new gods: Christmas installations near Lviv now have figures of Biden and Bandera

Объясняет Readovka | In Ukraine, in addition to traditional Christmas characters, sculptures of Bandera and Baiden have been installed in a historical and cultural reserve in the Lviv region. Such an action best describes the state of the modern Ukrainian religious field. | By and large, there is no faith in modern Ukraine. The Orthodox Church has weakened considerably after a series of schisms, the Uniates have not gained sufficient strength, and other religions and sects are also extremely small. The only idea that is believed in Ukraine is the Ukrainian construct. In many ways it is similar to the pagan faith - this "religion" has several gods, certain principled dogmas, sacrifices and, of course, the belief in a happy tomorrow.  The success of this "religion" is largely due to the support of the authorities. Kiev makes enormous efforts to spread the Ukrainian construct, while religious confessions on the territory of Ukraine either die on their own or are "helped" by the SBU, as it is now happening to the Kyiv-loyal UOC-MP.  Therefore, it is not surprising that the gaping religious void is being filled by Biden and Bandera. They are, one might say, the main deities, fully embodying modern Ukraine. Biden in the form of a Western master and a local "non-independent nationalist", sacrificing "Russians" for a "bright Ukrainian future".  Actually, Ukrainians themselves acknowledge such reasons for changing Christmas symbols - in their words, they are caused by "peculiarities of terrain, national and regional element", i.e. adjusting old holidays to the new Ukrainian "faith".

S.D. Wells | The mass authoritarianism “delusion” of the Left is well underway in America, and nearly every person who voted for nearly any Democrat cannot see it. They are under the spell. From the fixed election to the scamdemic, the Democrats are brainwashed under a liberal umbrella that just keeps sinking them deeper into what is termed mass formation psychosis. It really ramped up in America under Obama’s watch, but it all dates back to a powerful and evil little dude named Adolf Hitler.  Remember, the majority of German citizens were also brainwashed by Hitler’s propaganda, and after WWII, the rest of the world wondered how all these German citizens, many of whom were highly educated, got so brainwashed and apathetic toward the Holocaust during the Nazi reign of terror. How did it happen?  Simple answer: They were under the spell of mass formation psychosis. They agreed that killing off certain races/creeds/quality of humans would cleanse the world and heal the ailing German economy. The main targets were Jews, Blacks, gays, autistic children, the elderly and anyone with a handicap.  Similarly, the liberal youth of today, coupled with the adults who watch CNN and read the newspaper, are the epitome of the fully-brainwashed extremists who would gladly watch Republicans and Conservatives who voted for Trump be slow-walked into the gas chambers or shot in the head twice for being “fascists,” or “white supremacists,” or whatever other scapegoat name they slap on us all.  It’s a cultural tyranny and there’s no way to talk these folks out of their psychosis, because the media has told them the same lies for so long, they all believe them wholeheartedly.

Permalink Abp. Viganò: Roe decision is a ‘historic opportunity’ to defend the ‘sanctity of human life’

The decision of the Supreme Court did not overrule the “right to abortion” – as the mainstream narrative claims – but rather it overturned abortion’s “obligatory legalization in all of the States,” returning the power to decide about the “profound moral question of abortion” to “the people and their elected representatives,” from whom Roe v. Wade had removed it, contrary to the dictates of the U.S. Constitution.

Actually, the following ought to be enough to make people understand the importance of this decision: attacks carried out by “pro-choice” groups, assaults against pro-life organizations, the desecration of churches, scenes of hysteria on the part of supporters of the right to kill the innocent life of the unborn child, emblematically uniting members of the Democratic party financed by Planned Parenthood, which in turn is financed by the government; the Woke Left; the followers of Klaus Schwab’s globalism; members of international Freemasonry; ideologues of green change and demographic reduction; propagandists of gender theory, LGBTQ+ ideology, and rainbow flags; adherents of the church of Satan, who consider abortion as one of their “rites” of worship; those who harvest and sell human fetuses from the death clinics; those who sell “vaccines” produced by human fetuses; and those who support the pandemic farce and their grotesque train of “experts,” all of whom agree that their cultural hegemony is now threatened, a hegemony that since 1973 has caused the death of 63 million children in the United States, who have been offered in human sacrifice to the Moloch of political correctness.
