Trouble in Amish Paradise (2009)

Director:
Andrew Tait

Runtime: 58 min

Amiši, jedini hrišćani koje skroz gotivim i jedna skroz neuobičajena priča o dve porodice koje su se odmetnule i zasnovale svoju privatnu farmu. Mnogo jako. Inače ko 'oće da pogleda nešto malo jače o Amišima tu je i odličan dokumentarac The Amish - How They Survive (2005), te mu ga dajte. I da, zašto gotivim Amiše, pa evo zamislite da se tako u Srbiji neka sveštena lica odvoje od SPC i osnuju svoju pravoslavnu crkvu i počnu da grade npr. svoj manastir, šta bi im se dogodilo ? Realno je da bi ih prvo kamenovali a onda i žive spalili na lomači, a manastir sravnili do temelja za primer svima, i zato mi je izuzetno drago što su ih crnogorska i makedonska pravoslavna crkva odjebale iako su isti ološ, joj kako volim kad pizde vi to pojma nemate, samo poraz za porazom, mora da im je jako teško bilo u ovih poslednjih 5 godina, jer prvo ode Kosovo, pa onda sve redom, a kraj se ne nazire. Mora da je jako teško biti večiti gubitnik a pritom još kao vernik, tako da su kontam sad i popovi gledali Novaka u Vimbldonu, samo da im se konačno nešto lepo desi, buahahaha. Joj, koja patetika, ajme meni, što reče kolega Ognjanović : WHERE IS YOUR GOD NOW?! Ahahahaha, ahahahaha, ahahaha...


"Andrew Tait's film follows Ephraim Stoltzfus, an otherwise average Amish man who had been excommunicated and shunned for daring to suggest that some of the rules imposed by the community elders might be a tad unnecessary. His ultra-conservative Older Order Amish church subscribes to the same version of the Bible used by their Swiss/German forefathers, written in an antiquated form of Deutsch that most of them don't understand. After Ephraim and his equally inquisitive brother, Jesse, committed the cardinal sin of reading the Bible in English, they came to the realisation that many of their lifestyle codes hadn't been dictated by the good book at all.

Although his belief in God was unshakeable, Ephraim nevertheless displays a healthy sense of irreverence towards some of the wackier aspects of his faith. He has no idea, for instance, why Amish males have to wear that distinctive, Abraham Lincoln-esque chinstrap, nor why their horse-drawn buggies have to be painted a certain shade of grey. You would think, after all, that God had better things to do with his time than dictate the finer points of facial topiary and vehicle maintenance.

Tait's film manages to illustrate the frustrating inconsistencies and nonsensical barriers of life within a fiercely fundamentalist religious sect. And yet it also shows its loyally altruistic flipside, revealing that Ephraim had donated his entire life's savings to an Amish family in need, and despite his excommunication, the rest of the community rallied round with support when he and his family were in need themselves."

Postoji ovde ekipa koja se odvojila od institucije i čak ima svoj objekat. Što ne znači da im se ne sprema nešto. A ako ne, znači da se nisu odvojili. Zaboravio sam kako se zovu.
U Rusiji je postojala relativno stara paralelna pravoslavna crkva van institucije koja se zvala Katakombna crkva ili tako nešto. Ne znam da li i dalje postoje. Itd...
Kao i u svim ostalim ,,varijacijama" duhovnosti uvek će postojati određen broj ljudi koji ne trpe formalan autoritet i takve ljude možemo okarakterisati kao slobodne. Eto, napr., The Meteors-i sebe nazivaju ,,Satan's Rejects". I to...

Ne znam. Ne mogu da povežem. Ukucaj ,,katakombna crkva" u tragaču i naći ćeš razna spominjanja toga/o tome. Internet je čudo...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vDfg4ZNYJuQ&feature=related,da li si mislio na Zilote, Dinarski?

Vrlo verovatno da su i ovi na koje sam mislio zilotska frakcija. Ne znam. Imaju sajt i, na žalost, izgubio sam ga. Ako ga nađem, prosleđujem ga.

Koliko laik, kao što sam ja, je čuo, ziloti postoje i unutar firme. Iako cenim njihov, naizgled, smeo stav, mislim da se ne razlikuju mnogo od iste, na pomen nikejskog sabora. A problemi su počeli upravo tu & tada...
