    Unpopular Opinion 3#: I don't like the Cradles of Magic

    They are inconsistent and poorly explained.

    Why are two of them continents (Africa, Australia) and one of them (Ireland) is a country. Or has Landy not yet decided which country on each continent is getting the cradle?

    Or is the Irish cradle just smaller? And if it's smaller wouldn't it be weaker than the two bigger ones? Or does the smaller size just mean that the magic is just more concentrated and thus more potent?

    When Landy says the Cradles are 'where stuff happens', but that seems inaccurate. Most of the stuff seems to happen in Ireland tbh. The whole storyline of LSoDM kinda implies that the other two cradles don't have as much world ending shit going on.

    And since I feel daring today, here is a hot take and a theory/headcanon all included in one post.

    Hot Take: 

    America should be a cradle of magic. Again, Landy said cradles are were stuff happens and IRL a lot of stuff sure seems to be happening in America. Or because of America. In fact, stuff just doesn't stop happening over there. And the exact location of the cradle should be Florida. The 'why?' should be self-explanatory.

    Headcanon: 

    The Cradles of Magic are where were the Faceless Ones entered the prime dimension. Their arrival left the areas potent with magic and the fabric between the dimensions thin.

    Through this event the humans in those areas were gifted with the ability to use magic. These humans were the Ancients. The magic mutated them into living longer, being faster and more durable, but also into being unnatural tall.

    My headcanon of the Ancients being very tall is based on the torso from the Grotesquery most likely having been from a possessed Ancient which is why the Grotesquery was so freakishly huge. That’s also why todays mages are taller than they should be given the average height of a human during the time period they were born in; they are the result of cross-breeding between Ancients and mortals.

    The Faceless Ones/their arrival having gifted humans with magic also explains why they used to be worshipped by the Ancients and, later on, by the Faceless Church.

    The serving overseer of the Citadel Global Community Church (CGCC) (formerly Latter Rain Assembly), Pastor Tunde Bakare, has said that what Nigeria needs at present is a President who is most competent to drive the country to the Eldorado and not agitation for power rotation. He said this on Friday while fielding questions from State House reporters after a private visit to President Muhammadu…

    Pastor Pick Race, Leaving His Members In The Church After A Boy Did Something Strange

    Pastor Pick Race, Leaving His Members In The Church After A Boy Did Something Strange

    During their escape, many people fell and got injured. The incident took the members on their heel, falling on each other when the stubborn boy who was out of their sight, pretended to be ‘ satan’ and intimidated them by making a demonic sound through the microphone. The drama happened when the members were praying with their eyes closed before the actual sermon began. During the process, the…

    Greek church in Pera
    The extracts from his journal are continued: —
    “ March 5,1837. Some time last week one of the hermits put up a paper on the door of the Greek church in Pera, calling upon all the people to rise and utterly exterminate the corrupter of their youth and the destroyer of their religion. One of the principal citizens, passing by, saw it, and informed the bishop, in order that it might be immediately taken down; for, said he, should it come to the ears of the Sultan, as no individual is specified, he will very naturally think himself intended. But, though the paper was forthwith removed, yet it produced so much sensation that many protected Greeks went to church on Sunday, prepared, in case priest E. should denounce any individual as a heretic, to drag the preacher from the pulpit, and turn him into the street. The Sublime Porte also subsequently took cognizance of the paper, interpreting it, of course, in the very natural way suggested above; and the Greek patriarch found it very difficult to give a satisfactory account of the business. Some of the Greeks were for accusing our own quiet selves as the authors of the paper, but no one dared to do it openly and formally.
    “ March 17. Met in the street an Armenian teacher, who occasionally visited us last summer, and who had so much to say against superfluous worship. He asked whether our high school had commenced since the plague. I told him that our school no longer existed, but that there would be another and better one at Hass lveuy. He expressed surprise, and asked me to explain myself. As he appeared to be perfectly ignorant of all that had transpired, I began by saying, ‘ You are doubtless aware that the chief meu of the nation became a little alarmed about our high school, not knowing what might grow out of it, and therefore ’ —
    “ ‘ Aman! Aman! ’ (Alas! Alas!) he interrupted, ‘ I understand it all. Aman! Aman! ’
    “ ‘ But stop a moment,’ said I, 1 and you will see that it is all ordered right, and has turned out well. You do not uiulerst ’ —
    “ ‘ Aman! Aman! ’ he again interrupted. 41 understand it all; my worst fears are realized. Aman! Aman! ’
    And thus he left me, crying, as long as I could hear him, Aman! Aman! ’ which, for aught I know, he is repeating to this day.
    Sake of the Virgin
    “April 4. Being in the city to-day, a beggar, sitting by the wayside, asked charity for the sake of the mediation of Christ. I do not recollect of ever hearing a beggar use this plea before. If Christians, they generally ask for the sake of the Virgin, or some of the saints. In the present instance the poor man’s plea was not in vain; for I stopped at once, and gave him something, and I resolved to give something, if in my power, to every beggar who asked in the name of Christ, recollecting that blessed promise of His, that ‘ whatsoever we ask in His name, it shall be given us.’

    Growing up, the way my (very christian) mom explained the whole family hierarchy thing (for lack of a better term) was that the husband was at the “top” not because he was in charge of everything but because he was supposed to be the family protector, like protecting the wife and any children. And then the next level was the wife, because she was protecting the children. And the children don’t need to protect anyone bc their kids. So it’s weird to me to see all these men want to be mothered by their wives cause like, if you want a “traditional marriage” why aren’t you doin your job?

    #anyway I saw a bunch of men complaining that their wives put their children before them #like yeah?? the kids come before you dumbfuck #go be useful and die in a war or smthn #I’m not terribly coherent rn bc my meds are kicking in 😞😞😞 #maybe I’ll hunt up the Bible verses my mom was trying to explain to me #same thing with the whole church wife husband jesus thing #like your wife isn’t supposed to treat you like a god you should be willing to die for her #semi off topic but I’ve never met a fundamentalist christian who was good at literary analysis or reading comprehension #they take everything so literally #biblical literalists are insane 💀 #you know it’s like an umbrella the husband is the primary umbrella #I’m fallin asleep lmao

    “There is nothing more powerful than the Church. When you wage war with a man, you either win or you are defeated. But when you are at war with the Church, it is impossible for you to win, because God is more powerful than anyone. The Church is more powerful than heavens: ‘Heaven and earth shall pass away, but My words shall not pass away.’ (Μt. 24:35) ‘I will build My church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.’ (Mt. 16:18) If you don't believe these words, believe in deeds. How many tyrants were there, who wanted to destroy the Church. How many tortures, how many torturers, how many means of torture! And they didn't destroy it. They are all silent, all forgotten. And where is the Church? It shines brighter than the sun. The works of the persecutors of the Church have disappeared, and the works of the Church are immortal. ‘Heaven and earth shall pass away, but My words shall not pass away.’ (Μt. 24:35)” No force can defeat the Church. The Church is God's, and God is more powerful than anything.” —St Justin Popovic, “Dogmatics of the Orthodox Church” (1932)

    “ It is very remarkable, too, that of our disjointed family three should be ministers of the Gospel, in three different countries; and that all the rest, with all those connected with them in marriage, should be members of the church of Christ. Bless the Lord, 0 my soul, and forget not all His benefits.’ ”
    With all his calmness and self-possession, there were times when he became excited with earnest desires for the success of his work, and the triumph of the truth. This desire only became more intense as he saw the day approaching. To a missionary at another station he wrote, under date of Jan. 14, 1837: —
    “ Light is kindling up here and there. Truth is prevailing. Priests and people, in some cases, sit up all night to talk about the glorious Gospel. I am sometimes quite feverish with excitement. I want to jump; I want to fly; I want a thousand tongues to proclaim the unsearchable riches of Christ. We are unable to do the ten thousandth part we wrant to do. We do little more than stand and see the salvation of God.”
    To the Rev. Mr. Houston, who was considering the question of duty in regard to remaining at the island of Scio, or seeking a more promising field of labor on the mainland in Greece, he wrote, Feb. 4,1837: —

    Own city

    “MY DEAR BROTHER, — It is my decided opinion, and it is the opinion also of some of my brethren here (I have not had time to consult them all), that you would be justified, should you ‘ enter into a ship, and pass over to the other side,’ though not to your ‘ own city.’ And even your very departure might be a greater blessing to the people of Scio than your presence has been. They might blame themselves, and blame one another, and deeply regret the privileges they had lost; and thus be prepared better to appreciate and improve those they might enjoy in time to come.
    But, in shaking off the dust of your feet, be careful to do it in the most Christian manner possible. It should be a very solemn season, a season of great tenderness and prayerfulness. In taking your final leave of your neighbors and acquaintances, you should endeavor to give them the decided impression that you love all the people of the island, and feel most kindly towards them; that you had no object in coming but to do them good; that you leave them, having great sorrow in your heart, but that you go for the sake of carrying the blessings they undervalue to others who call for them, and will gladly avail themselves of them. And when you ‘ have gone over Greece, and have no more place in those parts,’ come to Constantinople. We need a helper exceedingly, and have recently written for one expressly for the Greeks here.”
