Wednesday’s Child: Hail Schism!

On the last day of August a momentous event took place, a historic meeting of the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople with his Moscow counterpart.  Prompted by that encounter was yesterday’s convening of the Holy Synod, which will conclude its deliberations and publish its resolutions tomorrow.  A great new schism is in the offing, undoubtedly good news for all true Orthodox believers.

Antifa and AltRight

These criminal rioters are playing from the same script, but it was not written by George Soros–though he may have bought the current rights to it–but by the revolutionaries in 1848 and, more particularly, by the Communist terrorists of the 1920’s, who tried took over Hungary and tried to take over Germany and Italy.  If you want to understand how Mussolini–a comparatively benevolent despot–and the far from benevolent Hitler–came to power,  all you need to know is that it was facilitated by Leftist terrorism.

Born Out of Due Time, by Ched P. Rayson, Chapter Ten

‘You would be amazed at how seriously some successful people take themselves, especially on subjects they have never taken the trouble to study.  A prominent surgeon or a wealthy industrialist will read a magazine article or see a television program on ancient Greece or the American Revolution and take the notion that not only do they actually know something, but they think the ideas they are parroting are really their own.”

Instead, Democrats emphasized their prevailing issue, abortion. Of course, they say it’s about the unsubstantiated allegations against what he did when he was 17, or a bar fight in college. But if you listen to them, it’s really about abortion.
