You're extremely well-read

2018-01-31 19:18:35 UTC  

I was a big reader since I was a kid, and my parents and extended family always pushed me to read history, philosophy, and other sorts of non-fiction.

2018-01-31 19:19:23 UTC  

smart

2018-01-31 19:19:48 UTC  

Now that I have 3 young kids, it's been hard to find the time to read much...Im currently working on 4 different books, but it's been taking a while.

2018-01-31 19:20:41 UTC  

i take it you've done some Orthodox reading as well

2018-01-31 19:21:04 UTC  

Ya, all the books I am currently reading are on Orthodox Theology

2018-01-31 19:23:12 UTC  

Pretty much over the last 4-5 years all I've done is studied Theology. The 7-8 years prior to that, I spent reading all the books that I have compiled on this "digital library": https://autonomousnationalistnetwork.wordpress.com/

2018-01-31 19:28:11 UTC  

Im a broke cracker, so I usually read free PDFs...Idk wat i'd do without Archive.org

2018-01-31 19:31:29 UTC  

I am SOOOOO sad that fascists.zxq is disabled...they had so many excellent and hard to find works.

2018-01-31 19:36:26 UTC  

You are an incredible man

2018-01-31 19:36:39 UTC  

Is your last name of English origin? Just curious

2018-01-31 19:36:45 UTC  

I'm partly English myself

2018-01-31 20:24:20 UTC  

@Tarnfurt

My last name is Northern English/Lowland Scot, but it isn't our original name. My great-grandfather and Grandmother came to the States from Ireland when my grandfather was an infant or right before he was born (my dad's side of the family is retarded when it comes to their family history), and for some reason they changed their name (being that Irish weren't too heavily discriminated against during the early 1900s, I have no idea why they changed their name...maybe for political reasons?). My Great-Grandfather died within a year of getting to the states, and my great grandmother died pretty early, too; thus, grandfather didn't know what our original last name was, so it is lost to us...I've done countless hours of genealogy research to dig it up, but to no avail...it's REALLY annoying.

That being said, I'm heavily: Irish, Welsh, and French, with a bit of Spanish and Italian.

2018-01-31 20:25:58 UTC  

A lot of Celtic blood

2018-01-31 20:28:06 UTC  

Ya, I am predominately Celtic and Nordic (my French lines come from Normandy, and a lot of my Welsh ancestors mixed with Normans).

Myself and my kids all took the names of my Welsh ancestors, when we Converted to Orthodoxy.

2018-01-31 20:33:25 UTC  

which patriarchate do you belong to, if you don't mind me asking?

2018-01-31 20:33:34 UTC  

ROCOR

2018-01-31 20:34:28 UTC  

I am somewhat of a black sheep, though, cuz I hate the fact we are now under the Moscow Patriarch...I wish ROCOR would have never gone for reunification, at least not right now.

2018-01-31 20:35:00 UTC  

I use to be in the OCA, but left it, due to their rabid liberalism.

2018-01-31 20:39:18 UTC  

What denomination do u belong to?

2018-01-31 20:42:35 UTC  

Greek Orthodox

2018-01-31 20:42:45 UTC  

i'm not Greek, it was just the local one

2018-01-31 20:43:15 UTC  

Nice!

I attend a Greek Church quite often, as it is only 15 min from me, whereas my ROCOR parish is an hour.

2018-01-31 20:47:13 UTC  

My priest is a philo-semite, unfortunately

2018-01-31 20:49:28 UTC  

Really? How does that happen? Most Orthodox I know, especially Cradles, have a strong disliking for Jews.

2018-01-31 20:52:02 UTC  

He talks about how "Jesus was a Jew. And a *good* Jew"

2018-01-31 20:52:27 UTC  

he sometimes says the churches are "too ethnic"

2018-01-31 20:52:29 UTC  

Isn't that heretical?

2018-01-31 20:53:21 UTC  

probably

2018-01-31 20:53:28 UTC  

he's not a very good priest

2018-01-31 20:53:31 UTC  

he swears a lot

2018-01-31 20:54:34 UTC  

The GOA is pretty compromised, unfortunately.

The Greek priest that Serves my Parish isn't Judaizer, but he's a limp-wristed (bad) ecumenist.

2018-01-31 20:56:08 UTC  

Then again, there aren't a plethora of good Ameridox priests, anywhere in the States.

My ROCOR Priest is hardcore anti-Jew and anti-Commie, but he's also a Guruist and a cracker Slvophile LARP, which drives me nuts.

2018-01-31 20:56:50 UTC  

I LOVE my Spiritual Father, though.

He was a high ranking officer in the NSRP and a hardcore racialist. I wish his parish wasn't across the country 😦

2018-01-31 20:58:28 UTC  

What's a Guruist?
