Nat Geo documentary at last, great scandal at least. P. 1

Канал National Geographic представил публике свою документальную работу о старообрядцах Николаевска на Аляске, названную почему-то Red Alaska (Красная Аляска).

Результат работы вызвал грандиозный скандал как внутри, так и вокруг аляскинских старообрядцев.

В своем блоге на Nat Geo TV Blogs 28 ноября Maeve McDermott разместила небольшой текст, фото и анонс видео под общим заголовком «The Hidden Village of Alaska’s “Old Believers”».  Предлагаем этот материал вашему вниманию.

The Hidden Village of Alaska’s “Old Believers”
Posted by Maeve McDermott in Inside NGC on November 28, 2013

In the tiny village of Nikolaevsk, Alaska exists a people carrying on a religion lost to time. Called the Old Believers, this sect of the Russian Orthodox church carries on long-forgotten traditions abandoned when the church enacted reforms. Red Alaska follows the Old Believers of Nikolaevsk as they prepare for the thaw of winter and the start of salmon fishing season.

The Old Believers have a history of persecution and hardship, forced to flee persecution from the Russian Orthodox church in the 17th century, scattering the population that settled in places from China to Brazil to Alaska. This village encountered a split of their own, when dissident members left to establish a priestless community in the neighboring area of East End. Fishermen by trade, the Nikolaevsk villagers are forced to share the waters with their faithless rivals.

Maintaining their centuries-old traditions while surviving as commercial fishermen on Alaska’s rough seas is a challenge for the “Old Believers”. Unable to fish on Alaskan waters during the region’s winter slumber, the community has fallen on hard times, with the village’s priest Father Nik broke and unable to complete construction on his new church.

While their religion may be different, the community members’ struggles to find jobs and feed their families tell a universal tale of economic hardship and overcoming diversity.

    Really Diane, NAT geo just likes to take unique comminties like our, find retareded people to go along with them make a joke about them? That is not how we live and most of our men are not womenizers like you claim! REALLY! Do you know who we are? No you don’t. It’s like saying all Americans are womenizers or all African Americans are womenizers or all Chinese are womenizers! REALLY so insulting, we live exactly like the rest of Americans, we work hard we play hard we have families we love we get together we celebrate, whatever the occasion! The only difference we pray differently from other churches and we observe holidays on different days than most Americans , And we also DONT work SUNDAYS, the lords day, and if that makes us so different, then we are outcasts in America.
    NAT GEO wants to pick the drunks of the village and portray the of us like that. I don’t think so, That is so wrong!

    And to you NAT GEO! what gives? Really those priest less people are sooo horrible and the est end is sooo horrible, that was the repeat of the show, Priestlless this priestless that. Why don’t you go and interview a person in the priestless. Community and see our point of view before you make us out as these horrible evil people, we are nothing like what you portrayed us. And it’s not priestless it’s POPELESS. We have priest we just don’t have popes, because we believe our last true pope died back in the 1600s. And nobody is true enough to be a true pope in this time. Those people went to Romania and excepted a pope from a different church, and that’s just not the way our church works! GET your facts straight before you televise your garbage. I used to watch your channel all the time but now I know it’s full of bullshit it’s just reality tv whatever gets ratings who cares if it’s shit or crap as long as it gets rating . I didn’t know you were in competition with MTV and Snooky and REal housewives. The next community you portray please make it real and not some cartoon!

    Wow… I’m really disappointed in Nat Geo for portraying Old believers in such a way. It also looked like that the village of Nikolaevsk wasn’t too thrilled with Nat Geo coming in and filming them as well because I’m pretty sure that the village has more than 10 people in it. I guess I can say that I’m not surprised on Nat Geo’s portrayal of the Old believer Russian community, they have a knack of taking the worst out of religious communities that they have done documentaries on; The filming that were done on the Amish and Hutterian communities are great examples of Nat Geo extracting the worst out of communities that still have sacred religious practices. I hope that people realize that there are bad eggs in every community, and majority of the time the bad eggs are the ones that are always trying to get attention which in turn stereotypes everybody else that may have an association to them.

    Looks like Nat Geo carefully chose their actors, they did their home work and research and went out filming, it’s too bad when they were editing the film there was nothing good they could include in the film but had to work with what they had.

    This guy they call Dom seemed to be spitting in a well continuously and then he himself ended up drinking out of it, they claim they are clinging to the traditions but when Dom asked his own son a question in Russian language the kid did not understand anything. It seems like anything these guys do they have one of their hands occupied holding a beer can.

    This so called documentary film is full of accusations and hatred, they make it seem like other neighboring village people are such enemy to them that people like Dom are shaking either fishing side by side others or going down the switchback might have been his last moment alive.

    I am having a hard time deciding which is funnier: The classic movie Dumb and Dumber or this so-called documentary. I especially love the part in the end where the Narrator says in his magical voice: “Little did Dom know, he was not alone…” LOL Then Dom says something about a car coming and that they better leave and to turn the camera off. LOL OOOOOhhhhhh….creeepy! Dom, what will happen if you stay? LOL

    In this video you will see National Geographic’s complete lack of journalistic integrity. Initially they set out to film a “Documentary” on the Alaskan Old Believers. Naturally, the true Old Believers turned down all invitations to be filmed for obvious reasons. So what does Nat Geo do? They go and find a “Knock-Off” group that call themselves Old Believers. This group (aka Popejniki) has long ago joined and accepted the modern priests around the world. In this video, the Popejniki constantly try to amplify the feud between the REAL conservative Old Believers and themselves, when in fact there is no feud between them. They are simply not a part of the true Old Believer church anymore. It was their own choice. Nobody asked them to join modern priests. Nat Geo found some drunk inebriates (at least in this episode) to film a Documentary on Old Believers!

    I’m not a lawyer, but personally I believe Nat Geo should go to jail for being an accomplice to drunken driving. They stood by and filmed the drunkards (in my opinion, that’s encouragement) while they were recklessly making cookies or donunts (whatever you wanna call them) on their truck and Nat Geo didn’t have the decency to report these hazards-to-society. I wonder if Nat Geo remembers how to contact those State Troopers that they also have a show on….

    While viewing this video, notice all of the things that are accepted (in no particular order):
    1- Shaved/trimmed men
    2- TV’s in their home
    3- Woman tries to explain how times are changing and they are now dating Outsiders
    4- Priest lets himself and church to be filmed
    5- Most of them don’t speak their native tongue (which makes it impossible to understand their scripture which is even harder to understand than Russian)
    7- Divorces
    8- Etc, etc, etc!

    All of this is more than frowned upon in the true Old Believer churches.

    Enjoy the film and feel free to comment below :)

    Oliva , now they are calling them self “pearls” LOL AK49 you sound like an Idiot lol. If you where not born an old believer and wasn’t raise in that culture then you shouldn’t be talking on there behave since you don’t know that culture. I on the other hand was born and raise one and it is a CULT. Petro and Oliva where right, and how they treat the popejnik DOM was right I count my blessings everyday that I left. You and I know it very well why they didn’t want to be involve its because they are afraid to show their truth colors how ruthless they can be . 🙂

    I thought national geographic did an ok job. I personally grew up in the “priest-less” side and thought the shows portrayal is not too radically different from other old believers. Yes, there are differences but it was still interesting. What I wish they focused more on is the culture itself instead of fishing. I no longer am in the russian community but I still find the russian community interesting with many lovely things in it. The wedding customs, easter celebrations and the bond in the community during these occasions for example. I wish they delve more in that direction…I do think its kind of cool that National Geographic took an interest in this community and it could have been a great documentary had they had more to work with. Below is a blog from a guy who also grew up in the community. I hope you enjoy! Blessings to all of you……http://oldbelieverfaith.wordpress.com/about/

    Hurrah! – to the hypocrites and whoremongers for they will amuse us to the end of time!
    I have to admit with everyone; what NatGeo did in their portrayal of the Russian community in Nikolaevsk was reprehensible, misleading and totally distorted. They took a quiet community and made it look like some kind of a Hatfield/McCoy war zone. There is no plot, no values portrayed, no real timeline, basically no particular story line. The majority of the chosen characters have very little concern for religion, faith or tradition. It speaks nothing about the past or the hardships of historical trials of survival of the community. It reeks of a modern day Hollywood B-movie comedy with very bad actors. At least the shows like “Deadliest Catch”, “Gold Rush”, and “The Kilcher Family” had a timeline and a plot that could be followed. Those were REAL reality shows and we all understood that.
    The ugliest stab in the back for Old-believers is the name of the show. Who ever chose “RED Alaska” must have been out of his/her mind. “Red” to the old-believers is “Communist” and to try to brand a community, which has suffered so much tragedy from the communist regime, as “RED” is no different then to call the Jews scattered after the German “Holocaust” – “Nazis”. Red also represents blood and hatred. Who ever decided on this name must have blood in their eyes and an ax to grind against this small community. Without a doubt, they are out to destroy the peace and prosperity of a hard working immigrant population of US Citizens. US Citizens, with the majority as born and raised in the US of A and trying to live “The American Dream” while in pursuit of their religious freedom…
    These are people that believe in the US Declaration that says “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
    The First Amendment to the United States Constitution guarantees the religious civil liberties of these people by saying: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
    Further in the “Statement on Religious Liberty” it says: “Religious Liberty shall be interpreted to include freedom to worship according to conscience and to bring up children in the faith of their parents; freedom for the individual to change his religion; freedom to preach, educate, publish and carry on missionary activities; and freedom to organize with others, and to acquire and hold property, for these purposes.”
    These are children of the Old-Rite movement of 1666, the resistance against the newly reforming Russian Church, the guardians of the original doctrine that was established in Russia in 988 – the “Gift”. These people were persecuted to near extinction, dispersed all the way around the world. You can find colonies of Old-Rite believers on every continent and in most major countries. They hold on to their “Gift” as it is passed from generation to generation. The passage of time and the assimilating power of their surroundings have damaged the “Gift”, have weakened the strength, and have lost most of the doctrine. In the US; prosperity gave rise to a movement of revival and the Old-Rite Church shines again as the original “Gift” that was passed unto them centuries before. Sadly only a few old-believers accepted this revival and are content with the few tattered fragments of the “Gift” that they currently possess.
    To NatGeo, and all the other corporate movie Hogwarts, none of that maters. The bottom line is always ratings. Ratings and viewers bring in the bucks, the more controversial the more people watch – to hell with the “documentary” the SHOW must go on.

  2. o.Pavel:

    The ANONYMOUS spokesman AK49ian and his sidekick Andy have made my day. These 2 fools have really hit the spot as far as the religious knowledge of the bezpopovtsi (bess-popeshniki as they like to say it) and their mentality of today.
    1. They have no idea what church or cult they belong to. No idea when their sectarian denomination was founded. Was it 2011 or 12?
    2. They could not name one founding forefather in the initial struggle of the church separation of 1666 in Russia. From 988-1666 the Orthodox Church of Russia held Old-Rite Church Canons as does the Old-Rite Church of today. Do the bess-popeshniki?
    3. They have no idea of the main reason for the struggle. Reformation. Yet the bess-popeshniki seam to be currently in their own schismatic reformation.
    4. They have no idea of what and who survived and for how long. Protopope Avvakum lived long after the 1666 schism, his followers continued to hold on to the practice that he preached, to this very day. In the days of 1666 there were radical people like the, bess-popeshniki of today, that burned and killed them self saying it was the end of the world.
    5. AK49 mentioned the 7 Ecumenical Councils but has no idea when they were or what was canonized into Church law. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/First_seven_Ecumenical_Councils
    6. They probably have never even heard of the 9 Local Councils that strengthened and enhanced these Church laws. Believing what babushka says as a bedside story is not a Canon Law.
    7. Ask them to name the 7 sacraments (mysteries) and how they apply to every true Christian and how many do they personally believe in? The answer will more than likely be zero. St. John Chrysostom says that if you annul even one sacrament you can not call yourself a follower of Christ i.e. a Christian. http://www.jesuschristsavior.net/Sacraments.html
    8. AK49 speaks of a large library of fat old books; my question is: Does he know what they are? — Has he read any and if so did he understand what he read? – Or does he read like a parrot “Papugai” not understanding a single word?
    9. AK49 speaks of reading a Bible — bess-popeshniki have no Bible per/say. They have a Book of Gospels and a Book of Apostle letters which includes Acts by Luke. There is also a book called the “Apocalypse” which usually sits with a heavy cover of dust on the back shelf (very hard to understand even for the best reader). During some large church service you may hear a few fragments of the Old Testament called the “Paremmii” and a multitude of service books and lives of Saints. In my travels throughout the world I have, only once, encountered an Old-Rite complete Bible. That was in the Village of Bela-Krinitsa, in the Ukraine, often referred to as Bela-Vodia by bess-popeshniki. Therefore it is hard to tell if he knows what a Bible is, let alone what truth it holds.
    10. They speak of bess-popeshniki nastavniki as priests. Again, they have no idea what a priest is. A priest is ordained by a bishop of an Orthodox Church. He is thoroughly screened for indiscretions and takes a confession of sins before ordination. A bess-popeshniki nastavnik can be the scum of the earth and still hold the position of power delegated to him by his subservient parish. Many are pedophiles and rapists hiding behind their status. The victims suppressed, the crimes covered up, often by the parents of the victims.
    11. After more than 30 years, I can still remember the final “love” a young bess-popeshniki nastavnik bestowed on me with the toe of his boot to my stomach. I was on the wet ground with blood on my face, within a breath of death, after just getting a “friendly” gang beating from my brother-in-law and his inebriated company. The reason I was there – I came to say hello to a brother-in-law, who for the first time in many years, came to visit from Oregon to Alaska. Why did they beat me within an inch of my life? – Because, as opposed to them, I chose to follow Christ and His teachings and to live my life within His Truth.

    John, I see where you’re going with this. It is true, the link you provided will lead you to a documentary on the Old Believers (different from those in Red Alaska). Even though this film is a more accurate documentary, unlike the silly reality show of the Red Popejniki in Alaska, I feel there is a need to clarify something.

    The video from your link was made in the 1980s. The true, strong Old Believers where NOT in that video (at least not knowingly or by choice). Those times were still kind of new to the Old Believers in America. The weaker were already accepting more and more of the American lifestyle even then. Even though they did not allow the spiritual proceedings of their wedding in church to be filmed, the fact remains that they allowed the rest if it to be filmed. Which is wrong.

    Are they Old Believers? Yes they are (though if they were true and strong to their ways, they would NOT have let themselves to be filmed). Are they the same as the “Old Believers ” in the so called documentary-Red Alaska? No they are not. The “Popejniki ” in Red Alaska were in the midst of their crusade to join with the modern priests around that time.

    But, like I have said in my other posts, all that the film producers care about is to have something or someone to film. They seem to really not care about the truth. The true fact that the true Old Believers will never be caught on tape. Because if they cared, they would make at least a slight effort to mention THAT. None of the films mention that anybody who participates should/will be excommunicated from the Old Believer church.

    The Popejniki call the Old Believers “priestless “. Anybody, with half a mind, reading this, will understand that if the foundation of a building is damaged or destroyed, the top will crumble and fall. Like the Popejniki, the true Old Believers believe the same thing as far as what the church is supposed to practice. But the difference is, common sense. The true Old Believers will not accept anything that will destroy their foundation. After decades and centuries of schisms, it is now simply too confusing and literally impossible to find the TRUE priests coming from the true Apostolic church. So they choose to hang on to what they KNOW is pure, staying away from documentaries. Meanwhile, hoping and praying for forgiveness and understanding from God.

    At the same time, on the other hand, the Popejniki in Red Alaska (including their priest!) are making fools of themselves on national television in some bizarre reality show. Tsk tsk.

    I’m am sorry. I honestly have not even scratched the surface of what needs to be said to understand the true Old Believers.

    Just remember one thing- If any film producer ever approaches the true Old Believer priests, I guarantee you all 100% that the priests will turn them down. The priests will speak kindly, be courteous, and all of that. But also, they will be firm and say NO, THANK YOU. PLEASE LEAVE US ALONE.

    If, by some chance, IF a priest of the true Old Believer church ever accepts and takes part in any film, or even allows anyone to participate, he will be deemed unworthy and removed from his position in church by the congregation. Liberal or progressive actions are the opposite of the very conservative Scriptures of the Old Believer church and therefore not tolerated.

    Oh AK when I was reading your response I felt sad for you , Yes I was born as old believer and I’m ashamed to even admitted, That region is a CULT, all it teaches you is LIES, Hatred and Judgement , The men that you so call “priests” which I personally call them ( Pharisees!!!) are nothing but heartless, ruthless people all the want is POWER and CONTROL , They don’t teach the true word of GOD but false teaching and put your minds in a compound to control you. That is why they won’t be on TV because of hypocrisy ( MEANING the practice of claiming to have moral standards or beliefs to which one’s own behavior does not conform; pretense.) . If you read the True Holy Bible the New Testament then you will know the true meaning of being a Christian. I’m sure you are telling yourself that this is “Blasphemy” how dare you, well its because I felt that way when I was in darkness like you!, because I didn’t know the truth either. Now I know the truth I feel sad for all of you. You fight for something that you don’t even Believe in which is JESUS CHRIST, what does the First commandment? I’m sure you don’t know , I will share with you (1.You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God) and what does that cult all about? ICONS they forgot who died for our salvation ( JESUS CHRIST) not some picture of a saint that didn’t do nothing and can’t hear you! 2nd Commandment ( You shall love your neighbor as yourself.) What do you guys do? Kill each other because they don’t have the same beliefs. YES that religion is OLD BELIEVERS the word says it ALL , there is no Jesus Christ in it! ! You guys are so heavy in darkness that if Jesus Christ would come today with out a BEARD and eat with everyone , you would crucify him just like Pharisees did!, I pray and will continue to pray for all of you that one day you will know the Truth. I will share with you what Jesus said to so call religions ( Pharisees)
    Matthew 23:13 “But woe to you, experts in the law and you Pharisees, hypocrites! You keep locking people out of the kingdom of heaven! For you neither enter nor permit those trying to enter to go in.
    Matthew 23:15 “Woe to you, experts in the law and you Pharisees, hypocrites! You cross land and sea to make one convert, and when you get one, you make him twice as much a child of hell as yourselves!

    No, Petro. I’m feeling sorry for YOU. Take a step back and reread all my posts and yours.

    1. I have zero hatred in mine while you are obviously angry at something.

    2. I never told you that I’m a true Old Believer. But since you assumed that I am, let me enlighten you. In the Old Believer community, I’m one of the more sinful ones.

    3. I will not click on the link that you have provided. Nobody forces me to believe anything and nobody is imprisoning my mind in any “compound ” of control (your own reference ). I ONLY GET MY FACTS FROM SCRIPTURE THAT HAS BEEN AROUND LONGER THAN THE LINK YOU HAVE PROVIDED.

    4. We do not treat our icons as God. They are simply images or depictions of those holy moments of time. English is my second tongue. I am unable to explain myself better in English.

    5. When we pray to apostles Peter and Paul, one of the prayers begins like this- Святии верховнии апостоли…. in my translation, all святые are saints. Again, this is not my first language. I may be wrong. But I do know that Peter was an apostle. In another prayer, it goes something like this (in part)- (веруем) И во едину святую соборную и апостольскую церковь. Since you claim to have been a part of this church, I assume you can read and understand that. If you choose to not believe in that, may God be with you. I’m will not say that you left and joined some cult. 😉

    6. I do not have a TV. But I do have a tool that I use for business quite a bit. I am currently using it to write this. The true Old Believers do not use these tools. I am a sinner.

    7. Etc.

    Final word: I’m am not a part of any cult. You and I can choose to believe or not to believe. You, my friend are confused and therefore more than likely lost in your own dark confusion. That’s what happens when you sway from the truth and start searching and discovering new things. Everything starts to make sense. Go ahead with your bashing and enjoy life. But remember – this is only a test and it will not last forever.

    P.s. Jesus will not come back without a beard. That’s just silly, among other things. 🙂

    Oh, by the way, Petro, go and take a “chill pill”. You’re so angry that you’re not even hearing yourself. What in the world are you talking about when you say that we “kill each other because they don’t have the same belief ” …? You obviously WERE a part of a murderous cult, cause you certainly are shocking me now. Because in the true Old Believer church nobody has ever been killed for anything. That’s just beyond ridiculous. Actually, lay off of them “chill pills”. Don’t take any drugs. You’re already delusional. Don’t bother writing anything else, and just go join that Red Alaska reality show and show us your love. I will definitely be your fan. You’re funny. 🙂

Hipocracy , ring a bell there Petro seem to me u have a knack for it

    Hello everyone, let me just say I’m not old believer , however I grew up by them, I know that culture very well, I have just seen the show and I thought there was nothing wrong with it. when I clicked on this link It was pretty interesting to read everyone’s comments. AK49 I don’t think Petro did not express hatred or anger , he sounds frustrated that you guys make it sound like Old believers are saints and they are great people, apparently he lived that life and it sounds like he knows it very well he was just trying to explain that its not what you all portray it to be.

    When I grew up with all the old believers they had a lot of hatred towards anyone that was not in their culture, I remember being scared passing by their homes if they seen us, the kids would throw rocks at us and say something in Russian , as time when by and we grew up I became friends with lots of them, some of them where son’s and daughters of preachers. also they where 3 groups that where different ( turchan, Harbin, and sinchagn) not sure if I spelled it wrong. I know it was forbidden for me to come to their homes I couldn’t even come to the driveway. however they would come to my home ( I never I understood that either) I remember one time my friend sneaked me in her home and her mother caught me she started yelling at me like I killed something was a very scary moment and my friend told me to run. Now days its a little better, however when you come to their homes they give you a plastic dish’s yet they go to restaurants and eat with my dishes when they come over, again don’t understand that either why do it? if you are in that culture then follow it! don’t be a hypocrite about. They put their Russian dresses on when they leave the home and come over and change and go to the bars, and these are the friends that they are high in their culture and church. that is why Petro said what he said.

    ak49 I don’t mean to put your culture down for what i’m about to say, you did say you are not one of them y yet you follow the rules so I’m confused what your religion is. The weddings they have all I can say is WOW the celebration are like 3 weeks nothing put drinking, I went to one of my good friends wedding and I would NEVER call that as a Christian wedding the things that happen there its scary for a Christian like me. I never went to another one again and wouldn’t never support it
    Petro said you kill. its because they have killed one men couple of months ago at one of their weddings in Brazil or Bolivia not sure which country, just because he didn’t believe either in One or TWO cross that they pray with. which that is the latest feud that have among themselves and more families are destroyed and for what? men made rules again.!

    I know you guys celebrate Easter and Christmas that’s from the New Testament. I never understood why? when you don’t believe the full New Testament just pick and choose what benefits them. You say that you read PAUL and Peter that’s new testament isn’t it? You just seem to contradict yourself a lot, I’m not here to put anyone down, I know what the old believers are all about , I lived by them over 40 years and seen lots of changes lots of families destroyed because someone decides to change rules I knew 3 churches now they have over 30+ ?. Therefore Most of Old Believers are not as pleasant as you say they are. I’m not sure which True Old Believers you are referring to?

    Questions AK49? you said that your scriptures and bible are older then the Holy Bible that Petro gave a link to, I didn’t know that there is much older scriptures then the Holy Bible can you please send a link to me? i never heard of this before I would love to know what Scriptures and bible you are referring to. (Last question) Russian Orthodox religion is only 1000 years old and Jesus Christ was on earth over 2000 years what happen to to those other people? Sounds like you need to read up on your history. GOD BLESS all of you

    January 7, 1:22 am
    Olivia, you are not reading clearly. Go back and reread what I actually said. I said that our Scripture was around longer than the LINK Petro provided. I however did NOT say that our Scripture is older than the Holy Bible. I stand by my words, unwavering. If I have any questions about my religion, I will go and find the answers in OUR Scripture, not yours. I have not and will not click on Petro’s link. Nor will I provide any links to my belief because those links do not exist. But if you wanted to see the Holy Books that my church follows, you would need to stop by in person. But so far as I have read your post, I am not interested in meeting you.

    This is the reason why- You and Petro and people like you are waaaay off base and subject. There is only one message here that I’m trying to get across. And that is this- You will never get a documentary on the true Old Believers. You can get personal and come up with stories and dwell on old memories of how some little children were bullying you years ago. That is not the way of the true Old Believers.

    And bundling some sort of killing with our belief?? What are you talking about?? Killing is definitely NOT what the Old Believer church teaches! Or promotes! Or condones! To that, I will say this: You and the likes of Petro are simply pulling the oldest liberal trick in the books and that is to Seek out those who disagree, Discredit them, then Destroy.

    You also said that in the past you weren’t allowed in their homes, BUT NOW IT’S BETTER. Sounds to me like anything that goes your way is better, but to preserve the sanctity of a belief is somehow bad. Why not just accept the fact that until you go through the whole PROCESS, you can not mix with the old believers? The people who go to restaurants are those who are weak and are swaying away from the church. It has never been accepted nor will it ever be. Absolutely none of your comments described the true Old Believers. But that doesn’t matter to you or Nat Geo. You’re on a mission and that is to distort the truth. Good luck and have fun with that. Just remember: you look and sound very much like a hater and a sad person when you write the nonsense in your post. Nobody is trying to come across as saints. There are good people and bad people in EVERY community. The weirdos will join your liberal garbage reality shows while the true Old Believers will keep dodging you. I, on the other hand, actually UNDERSTAND and know the true ways and am a believer of those ways (though I’m a bit off track myself) If you decide to pull Petro on me and ask what I’m doing here online, I say to you: Go and reread my answer to him.

    I very much enjoy writing, I’m sure one can tell by the length of my posts 😉 But I am getting tired of repeating my self when I say this: Distort and bash all you want, you are not getting nearer to the truth. The strong, true Old Believers will keep dodging Nat Geo and you. But the weak will get weaker until they become like you and then they will join yours and Petro’s band wagon in the “discrediting movement”.

    I have said before all this started in the Homer tribune’s comment section: Nat Geo will come in like a storm, destroy a beautiful thing, then they will leave us to pick up the rubble. I wasn’t far off, was I? The storm is beginning to brew. It will be very interesting to see how all this goes for the Popejniki in Nikolaevsk, Alaska. More than likely, some are already kicking themselves for joining. Bye, for now? 😉

    January 7, 2:19 am
    Sorry, oliva, I’m back.

    I wasn’t taking notes on what to respond to when I read your opinion post (there was a lot I chose to leave out) and forgot to try and answer your last question.

    You’re confusing yourself with numbers (1000 years, 2000 years, etc). Obviously you know nothing of our church’s beginning and have the audacity to tell me to read up on my history. Let me enlighten you in Russian because I do not know how to explain this English:

    Наша церковь была составлена семи вселенскими соборами, сотнями святых отцов. И мы всё принимаем что было установлено. А САМИ ни имеем право ничего изменить. Что за время потерялось из за всякого гонения, уж нам трудно достать. А что все еще осталось, за то будем держаться.

    So yes, Jesus was around 2,000 years ago. And our church was formed waaay after that.

    Now let me ask you this: If Red Alaska is supposedly a DOCUMENTARY on Old Believers, how come those facts are not in it? Why is it a stupid reality show on modernized (knockoff ) Old Believers? When you go and accept modern priests, you forfeit your title as an “Old Believer”.

    The Popejniki are now something else. The producers of Nat Geo should stress that fact more than they are.

    P.S. We should no longer be dissing one another. If you’re right, good for you. If we’re right, good for us. If the other beliefs are right, good for them. This is not the place to discuss all of that. It would require a library of some very thick books to get to the bottom of this.

    От Матфея 23:9 И пусть никого из вас не называют отцом, потому что один у вас Отец, Который на Небесах..

    And the link that Petro sent its old and new testaments its just scary for you to read because you will know the truth, its easier to live not knowing the truth.

    Just tIf you ask any one that lives by an old believers especially in Alaska you will not hear nice things , Unless you are a modern old believer

    I have notice You don’t answer all your questions that you have been asked you only choose the one you want to answer, It’s because that’s what your old culture teaches ” pick and choose whats convenient and suits you”

    Its no point wasting time with narrow-minded person like you. You will be in my prays that one day you will see and know the truth.

    That’s right, oliva.

    I don’t answer all of your questions because talking to people like you is equivalent to casting pearls before swine. You will trample them and go about your business. Your misconceptions will lead you nowhere good. The real truth will continue to be true to us, that’s all that matters.

    I have probably been very annoying to your kind.

    It more than likely burns you and Nat Geo and everyone else of your kind that the true Old Believers will never be documented on TV. You wanted a real show and you got crap. You can come up with as many claims, falsehoods, etc., as you want, but all you’re proving is that you are probably a disgruntled Popejnik (doesn’t matter) and you have no idea who and what the real Old Believers are like.

    This outspoken fellow (little ol’ me) is signing off. I’ll give someone else the chance to put in their two cents worth. Fun talking to you. I’m sure the readers got quite a show. Let them read all of the above comments and be the judge. Good bye. 🙂

    December 28, 2013, 3:49 am
    John, I see where you’re going with this. It is true, the link you provided will lead you to a documentary on the Old Believers (different from those in Red Alaska). Even though this film is a more accurate documentary, unlike the silly reality show of the Red Popejniki in Alaska, I feel there is a need to clarify something.

    The video from your link was made in the 1980s. The true, strong Old Believers where NOT in that video (at least not knowingly or by choice). Those times were still kind of new to the Old Believers in America. The weaker were already accepting more and more of the American lifestyle even then. Even though they did not allow the spiritual proceedings of their wedding in church to be filmed, the fact remains that they allowed the rest if it to be filmed. Which is wrong.

    Are they Old Believers? Yes they are (though if they were true and strong to their ways, they would NOT have let themselves to be filmed). Are they the same as the “Old Believers ” in the so called documentary-Red Alaska? No they are not. The “Popejniki ” in Red Alaska were in the midst of their crusade to join with the modern priests around that time.

    But, like I have said in my other posts, all that the film producers care about is to have something or someone to film. They seem to really not care about the truth. The true fact that the true Old Believers will never be caught on tape. Because if they cared, they would make at least a slight effort to mention THAT. None of the films mention that anybody who participates should/will be excommunicated from the Old Believer church.

    The Popejniki call the Old Believers “priestless “. Anybody, with half a mind, reading this, will understand that if the foundation of a building is damaged or destroyed, the top will crumble and fall. Like the Popejniki, the true Old Believers believe the same thing as far as what the church is supposed to practice. But the difference is, common sense. The true Old Believers will not accept anything that will destroy their foundation. After decades and centuries of schisms, it is now simply too confusing and literally impossible to find the TRUE priests coming from the true Apostolic church. So they choose to hang on to what they KNOW is pure, staying away from documentaries. Meanwhile, hoping and praying for forgiveness and understanding from God.

    At the same time, on the other hand, the Popejniki in Red Alaska (including their priest!) are making fools of themselves on national television in some bizarre reality show. Tsk tsk.

    I’m am sorry. I honestly have not even scratched the surface of what needs to be said to understand the true Old Believers.

    Just remember one thing- If any film producer ever approaches the true Old Believer priests, I guarantee you all 100% that the priests will turn them down. The priests will speak kindly, be courteous, and all of that. But also, they will be firm and say NO, THANK YOU. PLEASE LEAVE US ALONE.

    If, by some chance, IF a priest of the true Old Believer church ever accepts and takes part in any film, or even allows anyone to participate, he will be deemed unworthy and removed from his position in church by the congregation. Liberal or progressive actions are the opposite of the very conservative Scriptures of the Old Believer church and therefore not tolerated.

    Oh AK when I was reading your response I felt sad for you , Yes I was born as old believer and I’m ashamed to even admitted, That region is a CULT, all it teaches you is LIES, Hatred and Judgement , The men that you so call “priests” which I personally call them ( Pharisees!!!) are nothing but heartless, ruthless people all the want is POWER and CONTROL , They don’t teach the true word of GOD but false teaching and put your minds in a compound to control you. That is why they won’t be on TV because of hypocrisy ( MEANING the practice of claiming to have moral standards or beliefs to which one’s own behavior does not conform; pretense.) . If you read the True Holy Bible the New Testament then you will know the true meaning of being a Christian. I’m sure you are telling yourself that this is “Blasphemy” how dare you, well its because I felt that way when I was in darkness like you!, because I didn’t know the truth either. Now I know the truth I feel sad for all of you. You fight for something that you don’t even Believe in which is JESUS CHRIST, what does the First commandment? I’m sure you don’t know , I will share with you (1.You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God) and what does that cult all about? ICONS they forgot who died for our salvation ( JESUS CHRIST) not some picture of a saint that didn’t do nothing and can’t hear you! 2nd Commandment ( You shall love your neighbor as yourself.) What do you guys do? Kill each other because they don’t have the same beliefs. YES that religion is OLD BELIEVERS the word says it ALL , there is no Jesus Christ in it! ! You guys are so heavy in darkness that if Jesus Christ would come today with out a BEARD and eat with everyone , you would crucify him just like Pharisees did!, I pray and will continue to pray for all of you that one day you will know the Truth. I will share with you what Jesus said to so call religions ( Pharisees)
    Matthew 23:13 “But woe to you, experts in the law and you Pharisees, hypocrites! You keep locking people out of the kingdom of heaven! For you neither enter nor permit those trying to enter to go in.
    Matthew 23:15 “Woe to you, experts in the law and you Pharisees, hypocrites! You cross land and sea to make one convert, and when you get one, you make him twice as much a child of hell as yourselves!
    Matthew 23:25 “Woe to you, experts in the law and you Pharisees, hypocrites! You clean the outside of the cup and the dish, but inside they are full of greed and self- indulgence..

    Очень показательный диалог между старообрядкой Sophia и Alan Mairson по поводу этого скандального фильма:

    Sophia •
    I have just watched Nat Geo’s portrayal of Old Believers, as an Old Believer myself, I will let you know that majority of the community (with the exception of those 10 people that were in the film) didn’t want our lives on tv for all of the world to see. It also looked like that the village of Nikolaevsk
    wasn’t too thrilled with Nat Geo coming in and filming them as well because I’m
    pretty sure that the village has more than 10 people in it. I
    guess I can say that I’m not surprised on Nat Geo’s portrayal of the Old
    believer Russian community, they have a knack of taking the worst out of religious communities that they have done documentaries on; The filming that were done on the Amish and Hutterian communities are great examples of Nat Geo extracting the worst out of communities that still have sacred religious practices. I hope that people realize that there are bad eggs in every community, and majority of the time the bad eggs are the ones that are always trying to get attention which in turn stereotypes everybody else that may have an association to them.

    Alan Mairson Mod Sophia •
    Sophia — Thanks for your message. And I’m sorry to hear about the Old Believers show. Earlier this year, when the producers arrived in Nikolaevsk to begin casting for the program, I was worried that the dramatic demands of reality TV would mean that the Old Believers would participate in creating a very public portrait of their community that they might one day regret. As you mention, the Hutterites are the most recent & most vivid example of what can go wrong on reality shows like this one. I get the sinking feeling that what can go wrong has gone wrong… yet again.

I think NAT did a great job choosing Modern orthodox people for there documentary , imagine if they choose people that are priestless , now that would have been embarrassment to ALL Russian Orthodox Believers. All of you that made comment being offended by it, its because the truth is so close (lol)

    Well Petro seems to me like no one in America drinks especially you but in every city, town, and village on Friday, and saterday most of Americans drink, hence the billion dollar incomes for Budweiser, coorslight ect. So Petro to your last comment that they hide from each other, well our wrong ,they hide from imbeciles like you and your kind. The true old believers people are unique and are a breath of fresh air,and theydon’t participate in these shows is because scripture does not allow and the true old believers don’t drink like you claim. So have your illusions and dillusions Petro, but I can sincerely say you are wrong.

    Where should I start, Petro…The name “Peter” roughly means “rock” or “stone”. Which would mean that a person carrying that name would stay hard and true to the REAL truth. Yet, you choose betray Saint Peter and go on a purely nasty rant full of accusations. For example, you say “all you Russian orthodox drink a lot”. The truth is, you, and people like you, more than likely have never met a true Old Believer. If you have, then you would be ashamed of yourself. You will NEVER get a documentary on them. You will NEVER get a comment from them…at least not online. The TRUE Old Believers do not drink a lot…the weak and outcasts do. Al you have done is presented your childish attitude to the public. I pray that you used a fake name. Your future children would probably disown you for your unfair judgement of a beautiful group of people who in fact want to stay to themselves. I repeat – you will NEVER get a documentary on the true Old Believers. May God forgive and bless you. 🙂 Note: AK 49 comment above was copied from my video description on YouTube and posted here by a hack. I’m the true ak49ian. 🙂
