    I ask forgiveness from you as well as all others who I have offended, including those who I have criticized and mocked. Please forgive me for my impatience, lack of composure and general lack of respect and courtesy.

    'And there are also many other things that Jesus did, which if they were written one by one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that would be written. Amen.' John 21:25 The Icon of the Savior, Image Not-Made-By-Hands, also Acheiropoieta (Byzantine Greek: αχειροποίητα, "made without hand") is one of the earliest icons witnessed to by the Church. The Feast of this icon is celebrated on August 16, during the afterfeast period of the feast of the Dormition, and is called the Third Feast-of-the-Savior in August. During the time of the earthly ministry of the Savior, Abgar, ruler in the Syrian city of Edessa, was afflicted with leprosy. Reports of the great miracles performed by the Lord extended throughout Syria (Matt. 4:24) and as far as Arabia at this time. Although not having seen the Lord, Abgar believed in him and wrote a letter requesting Christ to come and heal him. Abgar sent his court painter, Ananias, with this letter to Palestine telling him to paint an image of the Divine Teacher. Ananias was not able go to near Christ because of the great many people listening to his preaching. He attempted to produce an image of the Lord Jesus Christ from afar, but could not. The Lord called Ananias and promised to send his disciple in order to heal Abgar from the leprosy and instruct him in salvation. Then the Lord called for water and a towel. He wiped His face with the towel, and on it was His Divine Image. The Savior sent the towel and a letter to Edessa back with Ananias. With thanksgiving Abgar received the sacred objects and started healing. He continued healing until the arrival of the disciple Thaddeus, Apostle of the 70. The Apostle preached the Gospel and baptized the Abgar and all living in Edessa. Having written on the Image Not-Made-By-Hands the words, "Christ-God, everyone trusting in Thee will not be put to shame", Abgar adorned it and placing it over gates of the city. For many years it was venerated by those who passed through the gates. Edessa, a great-grandson of Abgar, fell into idolatry and was determined to remove the image. In a vision, the Lord ordered the Bishop of Edessa to conceal the image. The bishop and his clergy at night, blocked up the niche with clay tablets and bricks inclosing with it a lit lampada. Many years passed by and the inhabitants forgot about the Holy Object.

    His intent was to save us, but even so, He wept for us, as He did before the grave of Lazarus. He wept, just as any loving parent would weep at the foolhearted disobedience and death of their child.

    I don't pay close enough attention to GOP politics, I guess. I assumed the Five Minutes' Hate treatment Putin gets in popular Right-ish media is a sentiment more or less shared amongst Trumpeters. (Trump himself isn't that consistent in a number of things after all...) *shrugs* Thnx, y'all ~hugs~

    Literally dying laughing.:D You'd think militant nationalists that demonize Putin would at least know what the Russian flag looks like... http://nypost.com/2017/02/24/trump-supporters-unwittingly-wave-russian-flags-at-cpac/ A political prankster passed out small Russian flags emblazoned with President Trump’s name at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference — where Trump supporters blindly waved the banners during his Friday morning speech until they were confiscated, according to online reports. Photos show people in the crowd holding the flags, which have “TRUMP” printed in gold capital letters on the middle blue stripe — and stern-faced men in suits holding handfuls of them as they scan the audience. “Crowd at CPAC waving these little pro-Trump flags that look exactly like the Russian flag. Staffers quickly come around to confiscate them,” Snapchat’s Peter Hamby tweeted. Photos also show a young man wearing a red shirt and a visor as he distributed the flags before Trump’s speech. The culprit was identified as liberal activist Ryan Clayton, who told BuzzFeed News that he spoke with a fake Russian accent as he told CPAC attendees: “Trump and Putin great leaders, yes?” An accomplice in the stunt, Jason Charter, said he and Clayton gave away about 1,000 flags. “Most people saw Trump’s name on the flags and didn’t give a second thought to the fact that they were Russian,” Charter told BuzzFeed.

    Government is antithetical to liberty. Someone with those beliefs has only accepted parts of the libertarian "programme" (to borrow a Misesian term).

    Indulgences, the Inquisition, Christianity mixing with paganism, and God's Word having errors in it are all lies from the Satanic apostles in Rome. I'm not just name-calling like you are sir, I am defending the Biblical religion against the man-made, statist, unbiblical traditions of the great whore.
