I was men who layed with young boys. That was the culture in ancient Greece. The erômenos were usually ephebes; although they would be considered children by modern standards, in Greek culture they were at the age at which they would undertake military training and gain citizenship. It is not about...

My Bible says otherwise, and its approved by the Holy Mother Church. Your bible might use a different word specifically, but it’s always been understood that ἀρσενοκοῖται means ”one who commits homosexual acts. Modern commentary suggesting otherwise is revisionism by pro lgbt sects. ἀρσενοκοῖται is...

Ah, I see, so its a cultural problem? Yes, in large part due to international politics. Many Russians see homosexuality as a sort of "western disease" that should be kept out. Ah, I see, well, maybe somebosdy should tell them the western disease they should actually keep out... :twisted:

Really?, I honestly did not know that. Than again our news portrays Russia as Mordor. :D Ironically, because gender dysphoria is considered a mental illness in Russian law (though that might change with the WHO's recent reclassification), there is a lot of legal recognition of trans people by the g...

In a different vein, can anyone recommend any good books on theology? The Summa Theologica lol.... Read encyclicals of the Popes and works of the Church Fathers is always helpful. First Principles by Origen is a good read! If you want some more modern work, I'm a fan of Jacques Maritain. The music ...

Yet they (the Russian Orthodox Church) did not object to the whole ''gay propaganda law'', I think they even support it..... The gay propaganda law is less about the actual LGBT rights movement than it is about keeping American NGO's out of Russia. Also, part of the reason for Russia's conservative...

Their harsh anti gay stance. While I'm personally affirming, I wouldn't say that the stance of the Church overall is ultraconservative. Reading official guidelines and knowing unofficial practices from anecdotes reveals a much more pastoral outlook than public statements might suggest. Yet they (th...

Sorry but its not doing it for me.... :unsure: My point is, it's not "happy folk songs", it's a ritualistic form of singing traditional prayers that dates back thousands of years. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_fSV9T-rK-E Here's video of an Orthodox service in Moscow to give an idea. Ok...

To make it more about prayer, and less about happy folk songs, its a ritual, not a musical. Yes I am biased since I hate singing. :D You've clearly never been to an Orthodox service.

Preferably something that needs no multiplayer, I do not seek to be humiliated by teenagers thank you very much. :D I don't really do online multiplayer either. Actually, that's partly because I play a lot of older games. Have you tried any of the Legend of Zelda games? You said you liked fantasy. ...
