Russian Orthodox Church Apologizes For Photoshopping Patriarch's Expensive Watch

Via MSNBC: The Russian Orthodox Church has apologized for doctoring a photograph of Patriarch Kirill to remove what bloggers said was a luxury wristwatch following accusations that he lives a lavish lifestyle. The Church responded after bloggers said a 2009 photo of the Patriarch on its website showed the reflection of a Breguet watch worth about $30.000 in the polished surface of a table where his arms rested during talks. It is sensible of the Russian Orthodox Church to apologize, but unnecessary since the Patriarch had received the luxury watch as a gift, and honored the giver by wearing it. Furthermore, we should remember that one important difference between Orthodox Christianity on the one hand, and Catholicism and Protestantism on the other hand, is that wealth not is regarded as something negative by Orthodox Christianity. Poverty is un-Christian and should be avoided, because abundancy and material wealth is in line with the gospel of Christ.

Pope Assails "Disobedience" Among Priests

Striking the tone that once earned him the moniker "God’s Rottweiler", Pope Benedict XVI in a stern Holy Thursday homily denounced "disobedience" in the Church, cutting down reform-minded Priests who seek the ordination of women and the abolition of Priestly celibacy, according to The New York Times. Pope Benedict's message is a sad one, because it is contrary to both the Bible and the ancient tradition of the Church. The Church will face an angry God.

Antichurch Forces Attack Russian Orthodox Church Over Support For Putin

The Russian Orthodox Church has released a strong-worded statement on Tuesday claiming it is under attack by strong oppositional forces that do not support the Church's backing of President-elect Vladimir Putin, according to The Christian Post. Vladimir Putin took a brave decision and made the Russian Orthodox Church the official Church of Russia. Putin effectively shows the time for liberal politics and rigid religions is over. Now we have the better alternative - liberal religion - which is Christian Orthodoxy, perfectly working as a state religion. But it disturbs me as a Greek Orthodox that there is so much anti-Semitism in the Orthodox Church. We should not give offence, neither to Jews, Greeks, nor to the Church, according to 1 Corinthians 10:32. God does not take back His gifts, according to Romans 11:29. One of those gifts is that the Jewish people is elect, as much as the Christian nation. As a monk on Mount Athos, I was very surprised the Old Testament Septuagint could not be found or bought in the bookstores at the capital city Karyes. The first Christians did not put the Old Testament aside, and neither should we. The old traditions of the Church and the first Christians are as important as the Bible. The Apostles and first Christians used the Greek Septuagint and the Book of Enoch, and so should we, along with the Greek New Testament, of course. "There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus", see Galatians 3:28.

Children Sacrificed To Mexico's Cult Of Saint Death



Eight people have been arrested for allegedly killing two 10-year-old boys and a 55-year-old woman in ritual sacrifices by the cult of La Santa Muerte, or Saint Death, Mexican prosecutors said, according to The Telegraph.

Jose Larrinaga, spokesman for Sonora state prosecutors, said the victims' blood was poured around an altar to the saint, which is depicted as a skeleton holding a scythe and clothed in flowing robes.

The grisly slayings recalled the notorious "narco-satanicos" killings of the 1980s, when 15 bodies, many of them with signs of ritual sacrifice, were unearthed at a ranch outside the border city of Matamoros.

The "narco-satanicos" killings of the 1980s were committed by a cult of drug traffickers who believed that ritual sacrifices would shield them from police.
