  1. Fiction writers would be laughed out of business for this. But you know - go figure. So Alexey Navalny - I believe a rival of Putin's was poisoned. And likely survived because he was on a plane and said he'd been poisoned and they landed in Germany. But get this - he then sleuthed around and had a conversation (recorded!) with someone about his own poison. So we know for a fact that he was poisoned. And they put the poison on the inside seams of his underwear. (link does have graphics) https://www.cnn.com/2020/12/21/europe/russia-navalny-poisoning-underpants-ward/index.html
  2. Rick Wiles must be guzzling the crazy juice by the gallon
  3. http://www.mambaonline.com/2017/07/03/russian-tv-channel-offers-plane-tickets-get-rid-gay-people/ Only in Russia.
  4. I don't have funds to give financially right now, but I really want to help them. So I thought I'd share Esenia and Anastasia's story in case someone else has funds and will to donate. Esenia and Anastasia met few years ago, came out, and were rejected by their small Siberian town. To protect themselves and Esenia's daughter, they moved to Kaliningrad. Things were still bad, and school basically kicked their daughter out for having two mums. So they moved to Kiev. They quickly discovered that Ukraine is not as progressive as expected. They had a trouble finding a place to live, they can't work and are forced to homeschool their daughter. So they are now trying to get out of there as well (to EU, I suppose), but don't have money to do so. And even with money it will be hard AF. Read full story here: https://www.pinknews.co.uk/2018/01/11/exclusive-please-dont-make-the-mistake-we-have-one-lgbt-familys-account-of-running-away-from-russia/ Donate here: https://fundrazr.com/f1JgM4?ref=sh_174vsc_ab_1VDAbBjVGxw1VDAbBjVGxw I so hope things get better for them and they can finally find a home after all that running. They look like happy, loving family. And they are fighters - they have come this far with a kid and two dogs and they are determined to do everything they can to save themselves. I'm sure that with little help they'll do amazing things.
  5. More "Christians" in action. And this, of course, is Agent Orange's buddy Vlad's favorite church.
  6. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/chechnya-gay-men-concentration-camps-torture-detain-nazi-ramzan-kadyrov-chechen-russia-region-a7677901.html The Chechan leader denies the claims on the basis that there are no gay men in Chechnya. “You cannot arrest or repress people who just don’t exist in the republic.” This is a horrifying story, and I think it's important that people be aware that this is happening.
  7. Then this happened in Russia.... express.co.uk/news/science/784831/Kambalny-volcano-violent-eruption-active Hmmmm.....maybe God's trying to tell you something, Vlad.
  8. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/jan/25/russian-mps-bill-reducing-punishment-domestic-violence-rights Russia has decriminalized some forms of domestic violence. From this article: (bolding mine) This puts the most vulnerable members of society at risk. If you, say as a child, a spouse or an elderly relative, get battered once and no one helps you- how likely are you to call for help a second time? Can you? What are the chances that an abuser will take away your means to call for help, after you've done it once? Personally, I don't get why some people don't take domestic violence seriously. If I attacked a stranger, I'd be looking at criminal charges. Why would it be any different if I attacked family members? A friend claimed that there's a saying in Russia that "if he beats you, he loves you" - I disagree with that sentiment. Strongly!

  10. The Russian Orthodox Church under Putin enjoys privileges from the state that it has not enjoyed since the Tsarist era. Even the most minor offenses to the Church are treated as "insulting religious feelings": https://www.hrw.org/news/2016/11/18/russia-thou-shalt-not-disagree-orthodox-church With the way things are going in the US, I wonder if we will see bills about "insulting religious feelings." Such bills would probably be struck down on first amendment grounds, but it plays well with fundie voters, no matter how big a waste of time they are.
  11. If you've been anywhere around the portions of the fundie blogosphere that fancy themselves to be "intellectual," you've probably heard of Rod Dreher, who was once a noisy convert to Catholicism who is now a noisy convert to the Eastern Orthodox Church. Dreher's schtick is railing about how the awful secular, social justice warrior, feminists are oppressing "traditional Christians" like himself, which is an odd thing to say, since there is nothing "traditional" about a guy raised as a Southern Methodist deciding to convert first to Catholicism and then to Orthodoxy; the ability to change one's religion is itself part of the modern self-fashioning that Dreher claims to abhor, but takes for granted in his own case. His other schtick is promoting what he calls "the Benedict Option," where white conservative Christians (non-white Christians appear to be social problems to Dreher, rather than fellow believers) withdraw from American society to live life on their own terms. Frankly, it comes off as a fundie version of Helter Skelter, since the fundies expect to emerge from their hermetically sealed communities after we horrible secular "pagans" have ruined everything beyond repair, and resume their place at the top of the social, political, and cultural heap. Anyhoo, when Dreher isn't going to the fainting couch over unisex bathrooms or the existence of trans people, he's swooning in the arms of Vladimir Putin's manly authoritarian embrace, especially since Putin's regime is known for jailing opponents of the Russian Orthodox Church, which includes LGBT activists, the Pussy Riot collective, and now a young Russian atheist who played Pokemon Go in church: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/worldviews/wp/2016/09/07/the-pussy-riot-inspired-russian-law-that-got-a-pokemon-go-player-arrested/ (a decent article about the incident) http://www.theamericanconservative.com/dreher/why-make-russia-our-enemy/ (Dreher's nutty commentary on the incident) I honestly don't get what this guy did that merited five months in prison. It doesn't seem like he was standing up on the altar or rifling through consecrated vessels. I would imagine that a lot of people play video games in church when they get bored, and if we're going to criminalize that, then there won't be prisons to hold everyone. Like many conservative Putin fans, Dreher wishes that the US could be as aggressive against "enemies of religion" as Putin is: Of course, Dreher assumes that anyone who identifies as an atheist must be in the "Bolshevik" model, as if there are no other non-theistic philosophies or lifestances out there. Something that Dreher fails to mention is that the Russian Orthodox Church had a very complicated relationship with the Communist regime, something that I certainly don't feel I can do justice in this post. However, I will say that during WWII, Stalin patronized the ROC with privileges and money, because he saw it as a useful tool for encouraging patriotism. In fact, many modern Russians still admire Stalin, including those in the Russian Orthodox Church: http://www.pri.org/stories/why-so-many-russians-stalin-again The ROC even made a Stalin calendar back in 2014, so believers could have twelve whole months of Stalinist hotness: http://www.rferl.org/content/russia-stalin-calendar/25224022.html Putin himself said something to the effect that any Russian who doesn't lament the end of the USSR has no heart. Thus, if Dreher wants to rail about individuals who praise Stalin in 2016, he should criticize his co-religionists. The main thing I get from Dreher is that many fundie Christians would impose jail sentences for those of us who would dare challenge their religious beliefs, no matter how minor, and that they are looking for a Putin-like strongman to do it. I guess this is where Trump comes into play.

    Turkey shoots down Russian Warplane

    Turkey Shoots Down Russian Warplane Near Syrian Border Turkey shot down a Russian warplane because they claim the Russian plane entered their airspace. Russia denies this allegation. It seems that if it did happen, it was very brief and the plane landed in Syria. Turkey is Part of NATO, so this complicates things for sure. Putin is obviously angry. Thoughts?
