I am most impressed that you actually spent time building a website to record all this detritus.

This is merely your capricious statement. There are other opinions http://folio.nzz.ch/2011/februar/mein-statistiker-haette-das-malen-koennen

The important point, however, is that modern art has a lot in common with the objects of worship in traditional churches. Even its outright degenerate examples have their counterparts within the churches.

the milk of the Virgin Mary, the teeth, hair, and blood of Christ, ... Numerous churches even claimed to possess Christ's foreskin, cut off during his circumcision.

Nope, that really isn't an important point at all. It is dull, mundane, uninspiring and a personal opinion of yours that is of little value.

Seconded. And as for the stuff about the false relics, what other churches do or have done is their business. Orthodoxy isn't concerned with that.

When the commissars opened containers with  the corpses of the saints, instead of incorrupt relics they discovered bare bones. Often non-human. And in separate especially scandalous cases even horns and tails.

Can't debate the issues and recourse to personal attacks?

Here is St. Christopher, whose relics were in one of Kremlin churches

Your point? That image is based on a linguistic misunderstanding:

http://www.orthodoxchristianity.net/forum/index.php/topic,18166.msg265290/topicseen.html#msg265290

St Christopher was 100% human.

Are you saying that the commissars had invited disinterested parties to report on their Satanic actions? I doubt that this is what you had in mind. So, what we see here is that you choose to believe Godless Communists. Let me ask you: why do you hate God and Christianity so much?

That image? All of his images are like that.




Christopher was a four-legged saint who barked and wiggled his tail.

Christopher's relics were investigated by Peter I's commissars.  Luther's and Henry VIII's people made similar discoveries.

Can you do a comparative religion inquiry into the Black Whopper the internet tells me is available at Burger King and give you green poop (btw, Hi Maria!)?

This sounds like some serious projection here. Perhaps you should be seeing a shrink.

Why not you recommend this guy to seek psychiatric treatment





?

And is not this a counterpart of the most degenerate masterpieces of modern art?

St. Agapetus as a doctor healed many during his life. What have you done with yours?  Oh, I forgot. You write poorly written articles on the internet about people who hang pictures of black boxes on their walls. Well, I guess we can't all play on the "A" team.

With his prayers. And after he died people can get healed by licking his corpse.

You are not capable to tell a good writer from a bad one when the name of the writer is separated from the text.

What is A? A college grade? I had almost all A at Brown.

A quote from the updated article

Let us add that the sceptics often ask the very same question about the creators of traditional icons that they ask about modern artists: could the guy paint? For example, Russian journalist Alexander Nevzorov described the famous Trinity by Rublev in the following words [7] (my translation):

    ...something with faded wings, with sausage-like fingers without joints, with hands with strange anatomical parameters, with puffy, very schematically painted womanly faces, and the deformed cup on the table.

A new finding

When Malevich died his followers placed Black Suprematic Squre at the head of his funeral bed. Christians usually put an icon in that place.
See the updated article for the foto.

The assumption there being that St. Andrei was going for photorealism and wasn't, say, painting in the stylized manner of Russian iconography.

Also, I find it hilarious that the Gnostic who believes in the Protocols of the Elders of Zion and writes ridiculous "parodies" of Christianity lectures others on obscurantism and degeneracy.

Don't be obtuse. I didn't mean believing that the document itself exists but that the batty forgery contained therein has anything to do with reality.

You mean that the protocols were produced by the adepts of Santa Claus II?
