    Me too. Especially the girls




    I was born Orthodox, and I am not gonna renounce that. But, I am not blind. I know the evil sides of the Church too. Not saying of the religion itself, necessarily.
    Thanks from Madeline and Ian Jeffrey

    Neither of us can provide objective evidence to prove that Noah, Moses or Jesus ever really existed. Nevertheless, the story of Jesus of Nazareth is the story of a Jewish religious leader. The separation of Christianity from Judaism was more of a process than a discrete event.

    Is that a painting (in the Spoiler)? And, if so, what is the name of the painter and painting?

    Some subversive additional verses to the old song 'Gimme That Old-Time Religion':

    And we will worship Aphrodite,

    She's so powerful and mighty!

    Looking SOOO good in that nightie!

    Well, it's good enough for me!!


    And we will worship like the Druids,

    Drinking strange forbidden fluids!

    Dancing naked through the wo-ods!

    Well, it's good enough for me!!

    No, real photo, of pagan girls in Russia going for a swim on Ivan Kupala Day/Night (July 6th): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kupala_Night

    Both pagans celebrate it and the Orthodox also adopted it as Wikipedia says.

    They also jump over fires that day, in Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, another nice old Slavic custom
