QuestionDo you refer to the general fascist school of thought? Or Nazism/Italian Fascism? I wholly do not subscribe to the latter, albeit my political opinions may be esoteric to you, I do not believe they interfere with my faith. A Christian morally mobilized state can be achieved though finding such a leader is easier said than done. This being said, I wish no ill-will on anyone on the earth except those willing to do harm to the innocent. Care to open a dialogue on this with me, my friend? Answer

If you would be so inclined, please sketch out your understanding of fascist ideology and how it is compatible with your faith. Particularly, I’m interested in how you work out said ideology while still claiming to be an Orthodox Christian.

I’m open to dialogue, but to be honest I have yet to meet a fascist interested in anything like a civilized conversation.

blakebaggott and darkenedanddazzled, a couple of Traditionalist Catholic and Orthodox blogs I followed (emphasis on past tense) were reblogging images from a blog called “American Blackshirts” today.

There are legitimate fascists on this website. They’re out there.

You can be scrolling through a blog, appreciating their taste in Christian architecture and artwork, and then BAM stuff about Nazis and Italian fascists. Talk about ruining stuff amirite?

Don’t be a fascist. Fascism is not compatible with your Orthodoxy and Catholicism (and it’s Orthodox and Catholic blogs where I see this), so cut that shit out.

For the sake of clarity, Protestants are by no means immune from this nonsense. The Nazis were made up of Lutherans.

There are plenty of American Protestants who are functionally fascist in their thinking and actions, they just might not be reblogging pictures of the Golden Dawn marching in Athens.

In a section concerning the passive voice, Wallace cites Ephesians 3:10 as an example of dia being used to indicate the church being a conduit of the wisdom of God — not a proof of it.

Eph 3:10 ἵνα γνωρισθῇδιὰ τῆς ἐκκλησίας ἡ πολυποίκιλος σοφία τοῦ θεοῦ

in order that the manifold…

There are a number of times where I feel that Wallace’s exegesis is a bit far-reaching, but then there’re occasions like this quote where I find him completely on point and insightful.

This was a great piece from Critical Theory, not to mention that it further feeds my hatred for ~Pumpkin Spice~ things.

Today only at Monks we’re featuring a one of a kind #descendents themed 20 ounce cup! Ok maybe I just doodled this, but the Descendents rule and coffee rules. #coffeemug #coffeepunx

Senator Ted Cruz

Ted Cruz is fully willing to sell out Middle East Christian martyrs in order to score domestic political points.

Please, all of you, remember that.

The only difference between Cruz and Judas is that Cruz had the presence of mind to ask for more than 30 pieces of silver.

Ted Cruz is a piece of shit.
