Soup4Bonnie: I am going to be so pissed at Joel Osteen as soon as I know who he is.


I think he's from that movie about the kid who sees dead people.

DamnYankees: Infernalist: DamnYankees: 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.


Speaking of Seinfeld, really, no one yet, farkers?

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

kiranlightpaw: IamAwake: if this was the attitude of the clergy of *any* Christian church in the US, I wouldn't have stopped going to church after years of looking for a new denomination

We're around. We're just not as loud as all the other guys.  My parish, for instance, is very big into working with prisoners and their families.

Also, we drink heavily.

Been following these threads with some interest over the past couple of days, and I'm really glad Fark's picked up on this. This is something that's been coming to a head for some time, has geopolitical ramifications, and for something with the potential to affect energy prices both in Europe with second-order effects on North American energy prices (perhaps not as important today as 3-5 years ago), it's amazing how little coverage there is even on the business news.


Give them a break! They can't cover Justin Bieber AND Ukraine.

If Osteen didn't talk about God so much, he'd be a Fark hero.

Every week his sermon is about how much you deserve no matter how little you do.

berylman: I can see the guy in center holding off a horde of heathens at bay holding the 12' cross rapidly spinning in circles



that would be awesome.

he should make some sort of PA in a backpack system with the sound of a hovering helicopter playing at 11 just to add to the fear.

isn't this the exact reason that religion was dreamed up?
to protect those in power from the angry unwashed masses?

careful, God is watching you.
