Four Great Orthodox Churches Burned Down during Othodox Easter

Would love to find out the piece of shit part of the human race that did this, and I have a sad suspicion I won't at all be surprised to find out who it is.

Know this though: The Orthodox church in this modern age is nowhere near as prone to simply "turn the other cheek" as the Catholic church does. You won't see our patriarchs kiss migrant feet in front of the media. We're nowhere near as scattered and ideologically dispersed as the Protestant church, and we're not anywhere near as indoctrinated with feminism and other such platitudes of the times as some of these other parts of so-called modern Christianity.

Our churches tend to serve their people and not the other way around. No Orthodox church I know thinks highly of that part of the world or its people and you don't need to push them hard to get them to admit it. Our part of the world (Eastern Europe, the Balkans & Caucasus) is known to hold on to historic feuds and has often been at odds with Islam and have long opposed them, just as we currently are with this refugee situation. And as we've seen with Russia, many of them are not opposed to taking heat from the rest of the world and sacrificing Western standards of consumption to assert themselves.

RE: Four Great Orthodox Churches Burned Down during Othodox Easter
The Orthodox Church is certainly a patriarchal institution, and a bastion of protection against the degenerate culture we currently find ourselves in. I say that as a traditional Catholic that acknowledges all the current feminist nonsense that is going on within the modern Catholic church. There are certainly parishes that fight back against it, but they are in the minority. I hope they catch the bastards that did this soon. The Orthodox church need to reunify with the Catholic church (after we clean up our own internal messes) and fight back against the forces of modernity that attack both of us.

Just curious if these are being investigated as hate crimes?

Religion of peace and prosperity no doubt.

Don't forget the Ethiopian Orthodox Church. 45 million strong and without doubt the most devout of all. The Weeknd ... Canadian rapper of Ethiopian descent just donated $500,000 to the St. Mary Ethiopian Orthodox Church in Toronto today.

Was there back for Easter 2013 ... beautiful Church. For every Church they try to destroy we'll build 4 more. Fuck 'em.

RE: Four Great Orthodox Churches Burned Down during Othodox Easter
I have a complex relationship with the Serbian Orthodox Church.

My dad had me baptized when I was 11, but I never went to church regularly. I once went for an Easter service when I was about 14 and nearly passed out from having to stand for the entire three-hour service in a small church packed to near-capacity. I didn't go much after that.

I have a sneaking suspicion that none of these were deliberately set. Take it from me personally - I've seen it happen where massive amounts of candles are lit and left burning in these old, easily flammable churches during Easter services. Couple that with the number of people they cram in at any given time, and the things are basically death-traps if something goes wrong at the wrong time.

That being said, God help anyone who set these deliberately - because the Orthodox Christians sure won't.

Yeah you're close there.

I have my own thoughts.

If it were only one church, I would blame candles before people. Seeing how four churches went up in flames, I will blame people before candles.

It's the candles.
