Orthodox believers living in the West have always been under pressure in all directions to conform to western ways, ideas and practices. There is nothing new in this. The Crusades were the worst and most blatant attempt by the West to bring the East to heel. But the pressures continue, albeit in more subtle ways. And one example of this is our constant temptation to drop the word "Pascha" and for clarity (and sometimes charity) use the western word "Easter". But perhaps the time has come for us to make a stand against this. In our increasingly secular and pagan society the use of a pagan word, of which no one knows the meaning, is hardly suitable to describe the greatest day in the Christian year. When most people knew the Christian meaning of the word "Easter" one could perhaps make out a case for using the word. But not today!

To be practical
There are still some for whom the word "Easter" has all the right resonances. Let us not want for a moment to deprive them of that blessing. Easter for them does not mean hats, chocolate eggs, parades or watching football; it means the Cross of Christ and his glorious Resurrection.
But let the Orthodox stick to the right word, which is "Pascha". Let us use it in our own circles, and discard the pagan word "Easter". We should do this — not to be different, but to be truthful.
However, when we are in mixed company, for the sake of clarity (and charity) let us use both words, if possible with a simple and humbly presented explanation. For example — "We shall soon be celebrating Pascha — or as you call it ‘Easter’". Or, "we shall soon be celebrating Easter, or as we call it ‘Pascha’".
We should encourage the West to unite with us in using the right word, which is Pascha.
And finally, let us not get dragged down with a dispute about mere words. St Paul warned believers in his day "to avoid wrangling about words, which does no good but only ruins those who are listening" (2 Timothy 2:14). The important matter here is not what the Festival is called, but the reality of the Death and Resurrection of Christ. Yes, Christ is Risen! If we can agree there, then what we call it, important though that is, can be seen in its proper perspective.

QUIT deleting my posts!
WHY are you "censoring" ME?

I "found" this on another website. It fits in pretty much "perfectly" with what I have been trying to say. Changing the name to protect the poster.

Dear topix.com ,
At times, I totally enjoy your website, there is nothing more enjoyable and relaxing then a good clean, lighthearted, conversation with like minded, mature commenters. Other times, I want to rip out a trolls eyes and spit in Chris Tolle’s face, for making my life a living hell.[mine is NOT or I wouldn't be HERE-AL]

I’ll gladly take some of the blame for my times of discontent on topix, after all, no one forces me to visit topix.com . But let me tell you a short, non-fiction story about topix hell in small town U.S.A....

Most people don’t have to, and shouldn't post their real names on topix, but that doesn't stop someone else from putting you in the limelight. And once you are there, it’s hard to get out of it. In a small town, where ¾ of the population is family and lifelong friends, being in the limelight on topix can be very devastating and damaging.

In my case, my personal troll(s) have taken it to extremes. And I totally agree with Miss Virginia Hoge, NEVER give in to bullies. By giving in, you are empowering them and therefore, IMO, contributing to the bullying.

I wont go into detail about what is being said daily about me on topix, it is the epitome of defamation, and is in no way, protected free speech. It’s bad enough that I have to read this about myself on a public forum, viewable worldwide, but how about the community’s children that reads this overly explicit garbage?

How can it be justified that children are being corrupted and their minds poisoned against their family, friends and neighbors when there are no knowledgeable adults attempting to deter it, or protect them from it?

There aren't that many parents even aware of topix.com . Oft times, they (the children) are introduced to the website by a friend or a classmate, and by the time their parents are aware of their child’s topix activity, the damage is already done.

I can go on, and on about this but let me just cut to the chase. I can think of many ways of protecting many, many innocent victims of topix defamation by making minor changes to it’s policies and/or TOS, that probably wouldn't effect “hits” or the popularity of said website. My question is, why isn't topix.com making any effort at all, in cleaning up it’s act?

I sure wouldn't want to see this spiral any further out of control and risk losing the privilege of enjoying the enjoyable aspects of topix, when the government has no choice but to shut it down.

Please topix.com save yourself :)

The mess he inherited was still unravelling. However, I do believe he should not have made that promise, but I think he made it in good faith, having zilch to gain, he was not longer campaigning.

Now Shia, Kurd and Christian areas never had any infrastructure because Saddamn favored the Sunnis. You can not destoy something that is not there. We were building infrastructure that did not exist in most areas.
Now, how many cars were in Iraq in 2000? How many in 2010?

So, no buildings or infrastructure destroyed. Ooooookay. And so, as trade-off for the horrors I described in the post your replied to, they now have satellite dishes sprouting all over and used car losts. Wow. Wonderful. AlQaeda roaming the cities and countryside, mullahs all over Bagdaa, oh, and Rogue, you gleefully told how Christians were celebrating Easter all over Bagdad. And I replied with a link showing a great great number were forced to leave the country because of persecutions. Nice. So bad, Rogue, so bad, some even went to Syria!

For YOU, you are probably correct. But why should you worry as you have no place to go after you die.
IMHO, God does not care about our mortal bodies. How long is eternity compared to life on Earth? I think God is more concerned where we will spend eternity tat how long we live here on Earth.
Now, I do not profess to know what God thinks about any given subject. Why he might have room in heaven for good atheists so I hope you are behaving yourself.
God knows all including the future, right? If that is, he knows the moment you are born, well, before, even, whether you'll have eternal salvation or spend eternity in hell. If he's so concerned where you will spend eternity , and knows you're going to hell, why does he allow you to even be born? Poor bastard's lost the moment he takes his firt breath. Oh, but you will say everyone is free to do as hr/se pleases. Is that so? Your daughter is just as free, right? Well, she tells you tonight that she is fed up with life, shows you her 45 cal colt, and in about 30 minutes will blow her own brains out. She says she will do it in exactly 30 minutes in her locked bedroom. And off she goes. I'm sure you won't stop her on the grounds that she is a free person, am I right?

Ken Starr dies and goes to the Gate to Heaven where Saint Peter tells him he is not good enough to enter but has to go to Purgatory for a few years so he was sent to the down elevator where the Devil runs Purgatory.
The Devil informs Ken that he can chose one of three rooms to spend the the time until her is relieved by another poor soul before he is allowed to go up to Heaven so Ken goes to the first door and opens it. He sees naked people on a hot griddle flip-plopping like sausages screaming in pain and he says to the Devil that that is not for hims so he goes to the next door.
He opens door two and looks inside and here are naked people sitting of big blocks of ice shattering their teeth and as blue as the ice itself and again he says to the Devil that is not for him.
So he goes to the third door and opens it up where he sees Bill Clinton getting a BJ from Monica. He turns to the Devil and says he thinks he can handle this one and that was when the Devil tells Monica her time is up and she can go up to heaven!
Again the bj obsession. And the Lewsinky phantasm, but not as hot as the very sight of Clinton's appendage. Ever gonna get over it, Rogue?

No if anything is based of history, it is the Muslim religion which believes that Mohammed rose into heaven from Jerusalem and the returned to Earth.
Hohammed was fully aware of both the Jewish and Christian religions and he wanted to upstage them.
While Hohammed was alive he never visited Jerusalem but in a dream he flew on a horse to Jerusalem where he then assented to Heaven and met with God before returning to Earth. That way he could be more powerful than Jesus and could lay claim to Jerusalem.
The Mosque on the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem is thought to by Jews, Christians and Muslims the place where Abraham was to sacrifice his son. Now Abraham's first son was from a slave woman and Muslims believe it was this son, Ismael, that he was to sacrifice whereas Jews and Christians believe it was Isaac.
From Wiki;
Abraham and Isaac
At some point in Isaac's youth, Abraham was commanded by God to offer his son up as a sacrifice in the land of Moriah. The patriarch traveled three days until he came to the mount that God told him of. He commanded the servants to remain while he and Isaac proceeded alone into the mount. Isaac carried the wood upon which he would be sacrificed. Along the way, Isaac asked his father where the animal for the burnt offering was, to which Abraham replied "God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering". Just as Abraham was about to sacrifice his son, he was interrupted by "the angel of the LORD", and he saw behind him a ram "caught in a thicket by his horns", which he sacrificed instead of his son. For his obedience he received another promise of numerous descendants and abundant prosperity. After this event, Abraham went to Beersheba.(Genesis 22:1–19)
Islam
Abraham
Main article: Abraham in Islam
Ibr&#257;h&#299;m (Abraham) is an important figure in the Quran, mentioned in 25 chapters, briefly or in detail. Muslims regard him as a prophet and patriarch, the archetype of the perfect Muslim, and the revered reformer of the Kaaba in Mecca.
Islamic traditions consider Ibr&#257;h&#299;m (Abraham) the father of Islam (which is also called millat Ibrahim, the "religion of Abraham"), and that his purpose and mission throughout his life was to proclaim the Oneness of God. When Ibrahim (Abraham) was asked for sacrifice and took Ism&#257;'&#299;l (Ishmael) to the place when he was about to use the knife, God placed a sheep under his hand. From that day onward, every Eid al-Adha once a year Muslims around the world slaughter a sheep to follow the path of Ibr&#257;h&#299;m (Abraham) that is called Qurbani sacrifice.
[
Abraham was a liar, a coward, and adulterer, a child abandoner and a murderer. The three religions of the book, as they call them, well, they can have him. I sure as hell wouldn't want my daughter to marry a no-good bum like him.

Now DO read the old testament, Rogue, make an effort, quit being an ignorant fundamentalist, dare to inform yourself and see if any of the words I wrote above are untrue.

SHEEPLE, Are you getting scared yet?
Many cases challenging Barack Obama’s presidential eligibility have come and gone, but now an appeal has been filed with a state Supreme Court led by a newly elected chief justice who has expressed doubt about Obama’s qualification for office.
Roy Moore was elected chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court last November, a decade after he defied a federal order to remove a Ten Commandments monument from the state Supreme Court building.
Now, 2012 Constitution Party presidential nominee Virgil Goode and Alabama Republican Party leader Hugh McInnish are asking the state’s highest court to force Secretary of State Beth Chapman to verify that all candidates on the state’s 2012 ballot were eligible to serve.
Attorney Larry Klayman, founder of the Washington, D.C.-watch dog Judicial Watch and now head of Freedom Watch, filed the appeal Tuesday with the Alabama Supreme Court, asking for oral arguments.
“We are hopeful that Chief Justice Moore and the rest of the jurists on the Alabama Supreme Court will follow the law,” Klayman told WND.
