You dishonor the memory of the Holy Martyrs of the Bolshevik Yoke and the Royal Passion Bearers of Russia. More pious Orthodox Christians died as martyrs in the last century than in all the prior centuries of the Church combined. 40,000 priest, monks and nuns were killed, and millions of laymen martyred. No, it's not the kind of "opposition to communism" one usually thinks of, but it is the kind of opposition to be expected from those who are not of this world, but merely in it.
Holy Martyrs of Russia pray for us!
Holy Tsar Nicholas, Royal Passion Bearer, pray for us!
God Bless Czar Nicholas and his entire family, murdered by atheistic Communist butchers.
I agree with earlier posters, we are all Christians and our real enemy is the specter of militant Islam. This fruitless bickering over our differences led to the fall of Constantinople and the desecration of Hagia Sophia by the Muslim oppressor.
We should agree we disgree on theology (our disagreements are really MINOR ones in comparison to what we have in common), stop quarreling and bickering among ourselves, and face together our common enemy - the harbringer of a new Dark Age - the Islamic plague.
