  1. Where’s the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch?

      Don’t forget to count to three, and only three, because this is the number. Don’t count to two and neither shall thou count to four, because four is right out! And so shall thou blow thou enemies to pieces in Gods mercy, Amen.

    • One, two…FIVE!

    • The Old Man on the Mountain Alamut March 21, 2018

      “Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who being naughty in my sight, shall snuf it.”

  2. Religion, politics, lunatics. Same like the U.S. As we all know U.S. VP Pence gets his orders from Jesus himself and the president is just a narcissist lunatic at the peak of his wet dreams.

    • Cleanup in aisle 7.

    • Yet another post that managed to take a completely unrelated subject and, through some sort of Byzantine logic, twisted it around to arrive at President Trump…..

    • I see Trump everywhere

    • Russia – Trump. There is a clear connection. Except you believe White House fake propaganda.

    • Trump collusion! Priests are blessing weapons with liberal tears supplied by Trump.

      I don’t see any black people, were did all the black people go?

    • @eon Right. Those are the tears of the students, teachers and parents of Parkland High.

    • Dat and Dattus: Trump lives rent free, right behind your eyes……

    • Keep crying Dat. More tears for the Ruskies.

    I frankly don’t know what to say

  4. The Russian Orthodox Church is in bed with Putin, so this is not at all surprising. I don’t think The Second Coming will be in Russia.

    A church in the Pocono Mountains, Pennsylvania, is inviting worshipers to bring AR-15-style rifles to be blessed in a ceremony next week. The World Peace and Unification Sanctuary in Newfoundland is located just a short distance from an elementary school.

    Church leaders expect over 600 people to attend the blessing next Wednesday morning, in which worshipers have been asked to bring their own AR-15 gun, or, as the church refers to the weapons, the “rod of iron.”

    The AR-15 is the same gun that was used last week during a shooting at a Parkland, Florida, high school that killed 17 people. The church said they had planned the ceremony months before the shooting.

    Tim Elder, the Unification Sanctuary’s director of world missions, said Tuesday that the church believes that the gun symbolizes the ‘rod of iron’ that is mentioned in the Bible’s apocalyptic Book of Revelation.

    The church website advises parishioners: “If unable to purchase and legally transport such a ‘rod of iron’ because of laws barring the purchase of weapons, or other reasons, couple are invited to purchase a $700 gift card from a gun store, as such evidence of their intent to purchase a ‘rod of iron’ in the future.”

    Elder told the Associated Press the weapons will be checked at the door, unloaded and secured with zip ties. However, he stressed that last week’s massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School only strengthened his conviction that the blessing should go ahead.

    “Now more than ever, good people need to stand up and claim for themselves the tools that can be used to stop that kind of evil,” he said.

    I think the point here is that the Russian-Orthodox church defiantly wins the price for lack of backbone when it comes to snuggle up with the ruling class. After being brutally suppressed by the Communist regime for decades the Russian-Orthodox church is now a good obedient dog to the Putin kleptocracy – while Putin in his younger days as KGB man would have taken pride in giving priests and church goers a bad time. And I say this as an atheist.

  9. Nobody takes that shit seriously over there. It’s a cross (tee hee) between a cultural event and an excuse for a gathering. Nobody *really* believes in blessing their crap like they do here.

  10. I thought this site was about funny pics?

    • And it’s funny. Nothing compares to the fun you can have with a sacred Rocket Launcher. Forget the holy hand grenade of Antioch.

      This site is about selling funny tee shirts and expensive twirling tops so landlord can live in a modest middle class house in Vancouver.

  11. I miss the old dat Vs Kauf buch trivial arguments

  12. I don’t get the point, it happens everywhere. Everyone is fighting for love and peace, with God on their side.
