The icon of Jesus Christ from the church The Dormition of The Most Holy Mother of God is at home for a small repair.

Not sure, but I am going to guess Africa?  :p

Shared it mostly for the pink/rose vestments.  Apparently it's a brown people thing.
I'm surprised that's the main reason you shared it.

The dozen New Testament Trinities was just the icing on the cake.

Many Tamils do worship Rama, no? This sounds like a complicated issue.

In the US though, it's mostly very old men at this point (there's even a joke that the average age of a lodge member is "deceased"). I wonder if it's still growing in other countries though (especially the third world, where it might be seen as more of a novelty?) The fact that women can't be full members isn't helping its cause over here.

Young people nowadays who would gravitate to that sort of thing have other options. They can initiate themselves into the mysteries of /x/, or join some cybersect.

Here in Brazil every big lawyer or politician is a Mason, it's disgusting. I have a good friend who's a DeMolay (I know a couple of disappointed ex-DeMolay's, too) and he would probably have invited me if I hadn't expressed my disapproval as soon as I knew of it. With due respect to whoever is inside, I never trusted this institution.

Ouch.
What's up with this book?
It's written in old Polish and it says:
The defender
of the holy Catholic faith
Mitropolitan of the All Rus
Bishop of Włodzimierz
Undermining by proven and deep reasons the mistakes of Alexandrian patriarch Melecius and the whole Greece that is with him in apostasy from the Universal Church.



It was printed in famous, great monastery of Supraśl, that had been founded as Orthodox one and then by force had to embrace Greek Catholicism. Now this monastery is again Orthodox.

It really depends on the community.  When I was flirting with the idea of becoming a Freemason, the lodge I visited certainly had plenty of old men, but the under 50 crowd was a balanced mix of guys in their late 20s and 30s.  Typically, the younger guys were in because a relative had been or was a Mason.  That particular lodge made it a point that continuing such tradition in one's family was important or (someone like me) to begin a tradition to pass down to your sons.  I did visit one lodge which was practically a nursing home.

1Canst thou draw out leviathan with an hook? or his tongue with a cord which thou lettest down?

2Canst thou put an hook into his nose? or bore his jaw through with a thorn?

3Will he make many supplications unto thee? will he speak soft words unto thee?

4Will he make a covenant with thee? wilt thou take him for a servant for ever?

5Wilt thou play with him as with a bird? or wilt thou bind him for thy maidens?

6Shall the companions make a banquet of him? shall they part him among the merchants?

7Canst thou fill his skin with barbed irons? or his head with fish spears?

8Lay thine hand upon him, remember the battle, do no more.

9Behold, the hope of him is in vain: shall not one be cast down even at the sight of him?

10None is so fierce that dare stir him up: who then is able to stand before me?

~Job 41
