One of the biggest weapons in the war against Christianity is the following: use of duplicitous, underhanded debate techniques and media manipulation techniques to shut down any discussion of current year degeneracy.

Here are several of these:

(i) Use of reverse moral outrage to push degenerate policies - When somebody says something transphobic, homophobic, this-phobic or that phobic, the technique is to become outrageously outraged and to socially ostracize or treat verbally violent the this-that-phobic person.

(ii) Creation of a social theology that is deliberately anti-Christian - These theologies and frameworks of analysis are (and this is not an exhaustive list): post-modernism (the idea that there is no such thing as objective reality and therefore your chosen gender even if not real or identity cannot be criticized), methodological naturalism (the idea that there is nothing outside the natural world and therefore any reliance on God or objective moral principles is out the window), critical race theory (the idea that any kind of racial disparity is caused by some oppressive structure unless it affects white people as if Noahide racial distinctions aren't a thing), the removal of religious education from school (related to the second thing I mentioned), etc. etc.

(iii) Pretending that wealth by definition equals worth - I am not a socialist or a communist I swear, but this is not only horribly un-Christian, there is no moral framework for it. Thinking like this might have you believe Jews are benevolent geniuses rather than the synagogue of Satan.

@Bigblabla To add what I've said, from someone far more qualified: a more in depth look at the topic Christian Faith and War, written in 1916 by Metropolitan Antony Khrapovitsky (the first head of ROCOR) I suggest reading the whole thing, here's a few of the gems that stand out, especially the first 3 paragraphs because they're entirely applicable to the modern condition of people.


"Really, consider the condition of the Russian people in the decade before the war : the degree to which people were perverted and lying ; how nothing on earth was holy to them, how it became the custom to do things even wild beasts do not know, e.g. to kill one’s own children : ‘how everything was for sale, beginning with personal convictions; how education and science fell and became objects of exploitation, and the schools were converted into diploma mills. "

" If children and old people, women, invalids, clergymen and, finally, people bearing any sort of special state responsibilities are absolved from active participation in battle, still no sort of occupation, sex, or age can absolve a citizen from giving what aid he is able to his country’s soldiers and military undertakings. Even without mentioning moral ties to one’s homeland and army, each must remember that for his own safety and welfare he is indebted to those innumerable deaths and injuries to which his nation’s soldiers are exposed for him. They find it sweet to die for their country when they know that the whole nation, the whole population is glad to help them in word and deed. On the contrary, the lack of sympathy of the revolutionary intelligentsia and the Jewish press was one of the maim reasons for the weakening of our soldiers during the Japanese campaign: is it worth dying for a country whose sons themselves hate and destroy it? Our enemies understand excellently the pernicious influence of such revolutionary outbreaks on the soul of the army, and therefore they spend large amounts of money to incite students to revolutionary demonstrations. "

" It especially disturbs me when protests against war and against the police are raised by people who cannot live for one day without the protection of both. Lev Tolstoy, who has preached nonresistance and the destruction of any sort of structured state, when it came down to a practical denial of the right of private property in 1905, was not satisfied with the common governmental protection and was forced to organize a whole cavalry division of his own to drive off by force brigands in the woods. "

“But Christ, you know, commanded us to love all people without regard to faith or nationality,” thus they begin to cite the Word –of God in which they, our pacifists, do not believe. Having no possibility of objecting further to rational proofs of the inevitability of war and not wanting to take a chance any longer on proposing specific thoughts from the Gospel, they are now citing its general spirit: “Christ commanded us to love our enemies, you know; He said there are neither Greeks nor Jews . . ” They cannot continue this quotation for, while they know well many couplets from Berange, they are in no condition to quote a single expression from Word of God, and in particular they cited this quotation against Jewish pogroms quite vainly. We also spoke, wrote, and published in opposition to pogroms, but, in the first place, we did not ascribe to Christ words of the Apostle Paul, and, in the second place, we do not advise our cosmopolitans to alter the sense of holy quotations, but for once in their lives to read them in their whole form. The Apostle writes to those entering the Church of Christ that they should put on the new man in it, having put off the old, for here “there is neither Greek nor Jew, neither circumcision nor uncircumcision, barbarian, Scyth, slave, nor free; but Christ is everything and in everything” (Col. 3:11). As you see, various faiths are not being spoken of, but only Orthodox Christians, i.e. sons of the Church, who must love one another without regard for nationality and social class."

"Finally, we have the perfectly clear teaching of the Church about murder in war which is set forth in the canonical epistle of St. Athanasius the Great to the monk Ammun and confirmed by the Sixth Ecumenical Council. With these words of the Church, or more accurately of the Holy Spirit speaking through her mouth, we will conclude the present article: “In the various occurrences of life we find differences which exist according to different situations, for example: it is not lawful to kill, but to kill an enemy in battle is legal and praiseworthy. Thus those who excel in battle are worthy of great honors, and pillars are raised to proclaim their excellent deeds. Thus one and the same thing, considering the occasion, is not permitted in certain circumstances, but in other circumstances it is timely, tolerated, and legitimate. One must consider physical union in the same way. Blessed is he who in his youth, freely forming a couple, uses nature for child-bearing. But if he use it for passion, then he is subject to the punishment for fornicators and adulterers proclaimed by the Apostles.”"
I don't want to derail the thread, but I thought it worthwhile to point out that Saint Mercurius was a soldier.

The Saskatchewan Human Rights Commission has ordered both Owens and the Saskatoon StarPhoenix newspaper to pay $1,500 to three homosexualist activists for publishing an ad in the newspaper quoting, verbatim and without annotation, Bible verses pertaining to homosexuality. The ruling issued by the sole adjudicator, lawyer Valerie Watson, also prohibits Owens, who purchased the ad, from “further publishing or displaying the bumper stickers submitted in evidence in a newspaper or any other medium,” and prohibits The StarPhoenix from accepting the ad for future publication.

As a reminder, the abortionist (((Henry Morgentaler))) was awarded the Order of Canada in 2008 for his commitment to abortion. Grim.

The biggest problems in Protestant Churches is that the national leadership councils are becoming badly corrupted by leftists. It's obviously a concentrated effort. Fortunately for me, I belong to a denomination where each congregation has autonomy. My particular Church has a very conservative Pastor and congregation. But I'm afraid that we're fighting an uphill battle against the reputation that the national leadership has put on the denomination.

Opposing women LARPing as Men is "hateful" apparently:


Self-deceived about being "Biblical" and "Faithful" but suppressing the truth about their own rebellion by their unrighteousness

May God be with you. Pray and ask others to pray with you about this. This is a Spiritual War and we need all the help we can get from Heaven.

I won't be holding my breath for the hate crime charges.

"This burglary not only stole a piece of our church’s history but in stealing our Tabernacle, an act of sacrilege was also committed. It was most disturbing to find the Holy Eucharist, the Body of Christ, strewn amidst the destruction.

I know in the media there has been much attention given to the monetary value of our Tabernacle. But the reality is that it is irreplaceable, as it was donated by the parishioners who built Saint Augustine."

Before all the governments became secular and we got “freedom of religion” the perpetrators would be burned at the stake.

Clearly a hate crime.

We can have freedom of religion, we can have multiple religions yes, but we cannot have freedom to disrespect religions.
