Queen Defies Islamic Terrorists

The Queen defied the threat of terrorist attack yesterday to ride down the Mall in an open-top Range Rover at the head of veterans of the Second World War. Against the backdrop of the London bombings, she made her gesture in front of a crowd of 250,000 people as Britain celebrated the 60th anniversary of the end of the war. Earlier, when referring to the attacks during a speech in Horse Guards, she invoked the courage of the wartime generation.

It does not surprise me that, during the present difficult days for London, people turn to the example set by that generation of resilience, humour, sustained courage, often under conditions of great deprivation," she said.

That example and those memories should be kept alive by younger generations as they in their turn strive to keep the peace in our troubled world.
Just so!
God save the Queen!

Nice blog. Keep it up ...

Sorry for posting an off topic question here but I think this particular one has a profound impact on our society.

The Pope says ?Harry Potter corrupts the young, distorting their understanding of the battle between good and evil?. In a way, he is saying ?Harry is Evil, Potter is Satan!?

Well, we know orthodox Christians also despise Uncle Santa Claus and all those at DisneyWorld, do you fancy a world without Cinderella, Snow White and Mr. Mickey Mouse?

Please use a brush that is considerably less wide (it won't paint so many innocent bystanders) and check the meanings (secular and religious) of the word orthodox.

If the Enlish Language is not the sharpest weapon in your armoury, perhaps you should use other weapons for attacks.

Try a hammer. You might have more luck.

Santa Claus is one of us. Saint Nicholas. See

"Nicholas was first a monk in the monastery of Holy Zion near Myra. Eventually he was made Abbot by the Archbishop, its founder. When the See of Myra, the capital of Lycia, fell vacant, St. Nicholas was appointed its Archbishop.
"It is said that he suffered for the Faith under Diocletian, and that he was present at the Council of Nice as an opponent of Arianism. His death occurred at Myra, in the year 342.
"The characteristic virtue of St. Nicholas appears to have been his love and charity for the poor. Because of this and of the many legends of his works, St. Nicholas is regarded as the special patron of children.
"The Emperor Justinian built a church in his honor at Constantinople in the suburb of Blacharnae, about the year 340.
"He has always been honored with great veneration in the Latin and Greek Churches. The Russian Church seems to honor him more than any other saint after the Apostles.
