So he's a rogue priest?  No wonder he's disgraced, you can't split your levels like that and get access to the high level cleric spells.

An ultraconservative Russian priest who denies coronavirus exists has taken over a women's monastery by force.

You might already be following an Antichrist if....

That guy couldn't be more Russian if he were riding a bear, chugging vodka, playing a theremin, reading Dostoyevsky, and interfering with American elections.

Politics aside, I love his look. :D

He seems ... nice.

And I thought Jack Van Impe was a loon.

Apparently I wasn't thinking of how many levels of lunacy there are.

Rumor has it that Pavel Datsyuk is part of this movement. Crazy but seriously sick mitts.

Idiot, the anti-Christ has already come forth.  He is holding a big rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma in the next couple of days.

The bit I loved is that he thinks the AntiChrist will rise soon in Russia as a COUNTERPOINT to Putin.

That puts the AntiChrist on a whole new scale in my books.

If you think that's nuts you should check out the US. The DM there basically threw up his hands and every group is now playing their own version of some deranged dystopia setting with vastly different rulesets.

The world we're in these days? I wouldn't even be surprised. Like, I don't have a shocked face left anymore. It's all used up.

Wow, that brought back memories fro Kodiak, AK.   There is a RO seminary there and by the mid 90s a bunch of weird "Orthodox" people showed up.  They had that culty look abut them and the locas were giving them the side eye.   It took a bit but here's a good article on them.

Of course the Moonies made it to Kodiak, they even own a fish plant and boats.

I don't see the problem.

A former policeman, Father Sergei spent 13 years in a prison colony for murder - though his supporters deny this is the case. He was released in the late 1990s.


So even the former Soviet Union was better than us at holding cops accountable for bad actions?

Son of a...  That was MY covid plan!!  I was saying back in February: "If this covid thing starts to blow up, I'm gonna hijack a Russian convent and just hole-up there." That's the last time I post anything on Facebook!

So he totes believes in invisible sky wizards and tons of other batshiat but he's an atheist as far as far as demonstrably true shiat goes?  Yup.

The number of times I've sat down at a table with three people claiming to be clerics who couldn't do better than Cure Light...

He looks like a Stephen King character brought to life.  He just needs to start executing non-believers or pushing them out to monsters in the mist.

Take the absolutely self-assured righteousness and others-hating  of you average evangelical, and stir in all the weird musty essentially pagan weirdness you'd find in pre-Vatican II Catholicism   and you're getting close.   These farking people, this guy in particular  believe Tsar Nicholas and his inbred brood should be canonized as saints for fark's sake

BTW, I know some protestants who love Father Ted because it shows how ridiculous the Catholic church is.

Well, when the show was on, I was still technically a Catholic.  I loved that show.

One great thing about Catholics and Anglicans is that we can poke big, big fun at ourselves.   Show me a funny Baptist show.  :)
