A Tale of Two Cultures

First in the [u]nited States, where Evangelicals are very exuberant over the Supreme Court’s ruling in Trinity Lutheran Church v Comer.  What does this ruling mean?  That religious schools can now have (let the excitement build a little) . . . shredded tires on their playgrounds at State expense.  Somehow, this passes for a ‘huge victory’:

Meanwhile, in Russia, over one million people have come to venerate and pray before the holy, Grace-bearing relics of St Nicholas the Wonderworker of Myra since they came to Moscow:

A total of 1,021,500 people have paid their respects to the holy remains, according to data published Saturday on an official website for the relics.

The queue to see the fragments of the saint’s bones on display has regularly extended several kilometers from Moscow’s Cathedral of Christ the Savior since the May 23 beginning of public viewings.

The huge turnout underlines the important of the Orthodox Church and the defining role religion plays for many Russians a quarter-century after the collapse of the officially atheist Soviet Union.

 . . .

Which do you want, Southron?  The ‘constitutional values’ of Exceptional, Indispensable America or a true Christian culture based on the unchanging Faith of the Orthodox Church? 


Holy Ælfred the Great, King of England, South Patron, pray for us sinners at the Souð!

Anathema to the Union!
