Orthodox Christianity- religion of peace. Or is it religion of insanely cool beards?

Someone has to be, right?

Not that I like Osteen, but why are we slamming him here? He has nothing to do with this, and he's among the least odious evangelicals as far as I can tell.

As to the main issue, what the fark is happening in the Ukraine? This is nuts stuff.

Summed up version: The Ukraine is very important to the Russians.  It's their breadbasket and the Russians like having buffer space between them and their perceived enemies.  They also consider the Ukraine to be 'theirs' and it's historically been subjugated by the Russians.

The Ukrainian people want closer ties to the west and the EU in particular.  The Ukrainian government is pro-Russian.

Thus, the conflict.

Yeah, I'm aware. When I said "what the fark is happening", I meant it in the Jerry Seinfeld sense of exasperation, not actually asking. I was unclear.

Welp, that's bad news for the current Ukrainian government.

Religious groups tend to be especially hard to contain and/or break. The Soviets tried for about 70 years.

It's not surprising that it worked. Not even Stalin or Ivan the Terrible could completely subjugate or destroy the Orthodox Catholic Church. Granted a lot of Orthodox Priests went missing in Stalin's various purges; but, The Orthodox Church has been very important to Russian culture since they split from the Roman Catholic Church.

Short version: They're all pissed off Russia is standing in the way of Ukraine hooking up with the EU. Might be a fight between Russia and Unkraine or some revolution variant.

The guy who is pretty much the reluctant leader is a pretty famous boxer named Wladimir Klitschko. If you do a GIS on him, he's a bare chested Ukrainian manly man so there's that. The battle of the bare chested manly men, Putin and Klitschko. This guy is a natural leader and has lived in the US, he loves western democracy and freedom. The Russian puppets over Ukraine are pulling nasty commie squashing shiat passing laws that prevent freedom of assembly and speech.

It looks like it's getting hot pretty fast all across the Ukraine. They are thumbing their noses at Pooty Poot.

Indeed. I took Russian in high school and college; both teachers were from Ukraine. Since the class size was so small we learned a lot about the history, culture, politics, etc. This situation was a long time coming. And it's wonderful to see religion used in a sane, and heroic, way.

The various forms of Orthodoxy (usually they just vary in liturgical language) are present in America, and are very open to all people, not just Greeks, or Russians, or Armenians, etc. Also we have real bread instead of the weak wafer shiat.

I spoke with my cousin who lives in Kiev today and he sent me some disturbing videos, he told me 7 people died so far.  There are snipers who are shooting people with rubber bullets. Even targeting journalist, they are aiming for their eyes.
Some crazy shiat is happening.  He doesn't go to the protests and all, but he is all for Ukraine joining the west, and pissed at the government for treating people like crap.
here is one of the videos

You do know that the Orthodox Church is short for the Eastern Orthodox Catholic Church?

The Roman Catholic Church and The Orthodox Church were the same thing, until the Great Schism almost 1,000 years ago. There were many reasons; not least of which was, the Orthodox Church wanted to continue to allow priests to marry and the Roman Catholic Church didn't.

The contrast here is that these guys have actually read and understand the Bible and are walking the walk instead of using enriching themselves and build a temple to Mammon. These guy are putting their lives on the line to try to save lives and bring a little peace to the world, and as such are 1000 times the Christian a megachurch preacher is.
