Nathanael Kapner – RationalWiki

Brother Nathanael Kapner, whose birth name is Milton Kapner but is more commonly known as Brother Nathanael, is a self-proclaimed “monastic with the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia (ROCOR)” who is rather popular in some conspiracy theorist circles while condemned by others, notably the white supremacists on Stormfront.[2] He is a street protester and has a following on the internet via The Brother Nathanael Foundation[3] and Real Jew News.[4] He also has a YouTube channel.[5]

In the comments section of the articles on Real Jew News, Kapner can frequently be seen e-begging for donations so he can continue his valuable work of trolling people on the street with his provocative signs. He has garnered some attention from media in Colorado by displaying signs with such noteworthy and intellectual messages as “ACLU Jews are Antichrist”[6] Much like the Westboro Baptist Church, he appears to enjoy provoking negative reactions out of people so he can claim he is being persecuted.[7]

Kapner was apparently born to two “accepting” Jewish parents in Pittsburgh, PA, but eventually cycled through various Christian groups, including Jews for Jesus, before failing at his job as a salesman to become a monk with the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia (ROCOR). He then joined the Holy Transfiguration Monastery in Brookline, MA (affiliated with the Holy Orthodox Church of North America), and then the Dormiton Skete monastic community in Buena Vista, CO. (It has been affiliated with several denominations but was founded by the ROCOR.) However, he was eventually kicked out of the monastery, supposedly for suggesting to the bishop that they protest Wal-Mart’s new policy of greeting customers with “Happy Holidays” instead of “Merry Christmas.”[8]

Concerning his relationship with the ROCOR, he also notes that he “speaks and writes … not in any official capacity with ROCOR.”[2] A July 19, 2013, statement from Chancery of the Synod of Bishops of the ROCOR declares that Kapner has no relation to the ROCOR diocese in which he lives and that his “actions … do not have the blessing of the Synod of Bishops.”[9] The statement further urges him to cease his activity on the internet and to repent. The statement was signed by Archbishop Kyrill (Dmitrieff), who is the ruling hierarch of the Western American diocese in which Kapner lives: “The clergymen and laity of the Russian Church Abroad are hereby informed that the actions of Nathanael (Kapner) do not have the blessing of the Synod of Bishops. Profoundly saddened by the state of his soul, we call upon Nathanael (Kapner) to refrain from posting on the Internet, to a life of repentance of peace in Christ, where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all (Colossians 3:11)”

In a forum post, a person claiming to be Kapner insisted that the person who gave this declaration was “blackmailed for alleged homosexual activity”.[10]

Kapner claims to enjoy the support of Bishop Jerome (Shaw); however, Bishop Jerome was involuntarily retired by the ROCOR on July 10, 2013, during an Extraordinary Session of the Synod of Bishops.[11] Bishop Jerome was censured and stripped of his episcopal duties and rights.

Someone claiming to have known Kapner personally, identified only as “Fr. John,” has stated that the real reason Kapner was rejected from Dormiton Skete was his lack of discipline, not because of any political conflicts. During the course of their relationship, Kapner supposedly revealed to him that he suffered from obsessive-compulsive disorder and bipolar disorder, had been hospitalized many times, frequently failed to take his medication, and had cut off all relationships with his old friends and family. “Fr. John” characterized Kapner as a “very dangerous [and] angry” man who “often threatened to hurt people.”[12]

White supremacists have been known to distrust Kapner due to his claims of being ethnically Jewish. Andrew Anglin, founder of The Daily Stormer, wrote in his earlier popular fascist blog fittingly titled Total Fascism that “first and foremost my opposition to him is because he is a biological Jew.”[13]

Opinions of Kapner on Stormfront also seem to be mixed. User Sturmgeist88 feels “his motives for running his site realjewnews “[sic]” and converting to Christianity are less than pure,”[14] and jimdoe alleges he is “a homosexual nutjob”.[15] Either way, infighting sure is funny.

In 2007, someone who happened to be in the vicinity of one of his protests noticed him drop a “a prepaid card with a scratch box for 30 free minutes from a gay adult website”.[16] (Brother Nathanael sounds off in the comments, saying something about pavement.)

Swing king North stars as St Asaph hammer Chirk – Photo 1 of 1 … – Rhyl Journal

A SENSATIONAL display from David North kept St Asaph in the North Wales Cricket League Premier Division title race with an eight-wicket victory over struggling Chirk.

After leaders Bangor were left frustrated by the weather, the surprise package moved to within 15 points of the summit with four games remaining ahead of their trip to Connahs Quay on Saturday.

Swing king North wasted no time in making an impact when he disposed of Wynn Jones (2) Nick Flack (21) and Welisarage Fernando (2) in quick succession, while Jason Foulkes put the new ball to good use with the wicket of skipper Gareth Partridge (4).

Things got even better soon after when North ousted Stevie Kelshaw for a duck, and the in-form bowler continued to roll back the years with the scalps of wicketkeeper James Carter (0) and Shaun Walker to end a devastating ten over spell with figures of 7-20.

Alex Baker also helped himself to a pair of lower order wickets in the form of Stephen Davies (4) and Chris Pritchard as the away side collapsed to 69 all out from just 21 overs at the crease.

As expected, the hosts made light work of reaching their required total to ensure that the incoming weather did not influence the outcome of the clash, with the opening pair of Mathew Ryan (26*) and Nathanael Scott (31) putting on 59 for the first wicket to guarantee victory.

Home captain Will Ryan also made a brief cameo to end the day opposite his brother and unbeaten on ten as the unlikely title challengers ran out comfortable victors after 18 overs.

Birthplace of Peter the Apostle found in Israel – Gears Of Biz

The birthplace of the men Christians believe were some of the first followers of Jesus have been found in Israel, a team ofarchaeologists has claimed.

Researchers say they may have discovered what they say is the home town of Peter, Philip and Peters brother Andrew, near the Sea of Galilee in northern Israel.

Experts have long sought to locate the lost Roman city of Julias, believed to have been built on the ruins ofBethsaida, a Jewish fishing village.

Israeli and American archaeologists say theyhave likely uncovered Julias near the banks of theSea of Galilee,also known as Lake Tiberias.

First century Roman historian Flavius Josephus wrote that Julias was built around 30 AD on the ruins of Bethsaida, where the Gospel of John says Peter was born.

Christians recognise Saint Peter, originally a fisherman, as one of the first followers of Jesus and the leader of the early Church.

Experts have focused their search for the city on three different sites.

The excavations were conducted by the Institute for Galilean Archaeology at Kinneret College in Israel and directed by Dr Mordechai Aviam together with Dr R Steven Notley from Nyack College, New York, who is the excavations academic director

Dr Aviam told AFP that one of the sites, the only one so far excavated, was believed to be the correct site.

He said: We have uncovered fragments of pottery, coins, and the remains of a public bath, which tends to prove that it was not a small village, but a town which may correspond to Julias.

Based on these findings, we believe this site is likely to be located at the site of Bethsaida.

The site, not far from the Jordan River, is a few hundred metres from Lake Tiberias.

Water levels would have been far higher during the first century.

Work is also being carried out on another site a few miles away, Aviam added.

He said he hoped further excavations would reveal evidence from pre-Roman times, including ancient Jewish remains, which could help verify whether the site is Bethsaida.

The site is near the land where Lukes gospel reports the miracle of Jesus feeding five thousand people with only five loaves of bread and two fish.

The site will not immediately be opened to the public, he said.

Saint Peter the Apostle, originally named Simeon, or Simn, was a disciple of Jesus Christ.

He died in around 64 AD in Rome and was recognised in the early Christian church as the leader of the disciples.

The Roman Catholic church venerates St Peter as the first of its unbroken succession of popes.

Peter, a fisherman, was called to be a disciple of Jesus at the beginning of his ministry according to Christian tradition.

He received from Jesus the name Cephas or the rock, hence Peter, from the Latin petra.

Saint Andrew is believed to have died around 60 or 70 AD in Patras, Greece.

Like his brother Peter, Andrew was a fisherman.

Early church legends say he undertook missionary activity in the area around the Black Sea.

A fourth-century account reports his death by crucifixion and late medieval tales state the cross was X-shaped.

This gives the flag of Scotland, of which Andrew is the patron Saint, its characteristic shape.

Saint Philip, who is believed to have died in the first century AD, makes frequent appearances in the Gospel According to John.

He is said to have answered Jesus call to Follow me and brought Saint Nathanael to Jesus.

With Saint Andrew, he is also written to have brought word to Jesus that certain Greeks had asked to see him.

St Asaph transformed into title contenders by skipper Will Ryan … – Denbighshire Free Press

A MEMORABLE campaign has seen St Asaph emerge as genuine title challengers after narrowly avoiding the drop last term.

It has been nothing short of extraordinary turnaround of form for the group, which sees them sit in third spot and just 22 points behind long-time leaders Bangor and two behind second placed Menai Bridge.

This is down in no small part to the leadership of Will Ryan, who took on the role of captain this summer after replacing brother Matty, who helped the side retain their place in the North Wales Cricket League Premier Division after a rousing effort.

The skipper has been a prominent and consistent figure for the city side and has led by example on-and-off the field, while also securing his place as one of the top batsmen operating within the division.

He has amassed an impressive 622 runs which put him fourth in the overall standings, producing an average of 51.83 with a seasons best of 117.

Ryans decision-making in critical situations has also brought with it huge reward, and if they can continue this run of form for the remaining six games then the sky is the limit as to where they can finish.

There have been a host of other notable performers for the club during their successful campaign so far, with Mathew Ryan contributing heavily to their triumphs after producing a number of exceptional efforts to claim 522 runs.

The opener has claimed a new lease of life after being unburdened of the captaincy, and the likes of Nathanael Scott and Danny Ryan have also come up with the goods to propel them up the standings.

All-rounders Paul Fleming and Jason Foulkes have also been key components of the squad, and both are relatively young which gives them plenty of scope for improvement in the future.

Foulkes in particular has shone with 238 runs at the average of 29.75, while also helping himself to 23 wickets from 98 overs at a strike rate of 25.

The presence of Amer Jamil has been welcome when he has been available, and if he can figure in more games between now and the end of the campaign then this is going to be another valuable commodity that the skipper can call upon in their time of need.

Another plus is that they could have destiny in their own hands with Llandudno, Denbigh and Bangor still to play, while they will be looking for maximum points from contests against Mochdre and Chirk.

Whatever the outcome at the end of the season, Ryan and his side can be proud of what they have done to not only establish the club as a force to be reckoned with, but also give the club plenty of encouragement long-term success in the coming years.

Birthplace of Peter the Apostle found in Israel – Gears Of Biz

The birthplace of the men Christians believe were some of the first followers of Jesus have been found in Israel, a team ofarchaeologists has claimed. Researchers say they may have discovered what they say is the home town of Peter, Philip and Peters brother Andrew, near the Sea of Galilee in northern Israel. Experts have long sought to locate the lost Roman city of Julias, believed to have been built on the ruins ofBethsaida, a Jewish fishing village. Israeli and American archaeologists say theyhave likely uncovered Julias near the banks of theSea of Galilee,also known as Lake Tiberias. First century Roman historian Flavius Josephus wrote that Julias was built around 30 AD on the ruins of Bethsaida, where the Gospel of John says Peter was born. Christians recognise Saint Peter, originally a fisherman, as one of the first followers of Jesus and the leader of the early Church. Experts have focused their search for the city on three different sites. The excavations were conducted by the Institute for Galilean Archaeology at Kinneret College in Israel and directed by Dr Mordechai Aviam together with Dr R Steven Notley from Nyack College, New York, who is the excavations academic director Dr Aviam told AFP that one of the sites, the only one so far excavated, was believed to be the correct site. He said: We have uncovered fragments of pottery, coins, and the remains of a public bath, which tends to prove that it was not a small village, but a town which may correspond to Julias. Based on these findings, we believe this site is likely to be located at the site of Bethsaida. The site, not far from the Jordan River, is a few hundred metres from Lake Tiberias. Water levels would have been far higher during the first century. Work is also being carried out on another site a few miles away, Aviam added. He said he hoped further excavations would reveal evidence from pre-Roman times, including ancient Jewish remains, which could help verify whether the site is Bethsaida. The site is near the land where Lukes gospel reports the miracle of Jesus feeding five thousand people with only five loaves of bread and two fish. The site will not immediately be opened to the public, he said. Saint Peter the Apostle, originally named Simeon, or Simn, was a disciple of Jesus Christ. He died in around 64 AD in Rome and was recognised in the early Christian church as the leader of the disciples. The Roman Catholic church venerates St Peter as the first of its unbroken succession of popes. Peter, a fisherman, was called to be a disciple of Jesus at the beginning of his ministry according to Christian tradition. He received from Jesus the name Cephas or the rock, hence Peter, from the Latin petra. Saint Andrew is believed to have died around 60 or 70 AD in Patras, Greece. Like his brother Peter, Andrew was a fisherman. Early church legends say he undertook missionary activity in the area around the Black Sea. A fourth-century account reports his death by crucifixion and late medieval tales state the cross was X-shaped. This gives the flag of Scotland, of which Andrew is the patron Saint, its characteristic shape. Saint Philip, who is believed to have died in the first century AD, makes frequent appearances in the Gospel According to John. He is said to have answered Jesus call to Follow me and brought Saint Nathanael to Jesus. With Saint Andrew, he is also written to have brought word to Jesus that certain Greeks had asked to see him.

St Asaph transformed into title contenders by skipper Will Ryan … – Denbighshire Free Press

A MEMORABLE campaign has seen St Asaph emerge as genuine title challengers after narrowly avoiding the drop last term. It has been nothing short of extraordinary turnaround of form for the group, which sees them sit in third spot and just 22 points behind long-time leaders Bangor and two behind second placed Menai Bridge. This is down in no small part to the leadership of Will Ryan, who took on the role of captain this summer after replacing brother Matty, who helped the side retain their place in the North Wales Cricket League Premier Division after a rousing effort. The skipper has been a prominent and consistent figure for the city side and has led by example on-and-off the field, while also securing his place as one of the top batsmen operating within the division. He has amassed an impressive 622 runs which put him fourth in the overall standings, producing an average of 51.83 with a seasons best of 117. Ryans decision-making in critical situations has also brought with it huge reward, and if they can continue this run of form for the remaining six games then the sky is the limit as to where they can finish. There have been a host of other notable performers for the club during their successful campaign so far, with Mathew Ryan contributing heavily to their triumphs after producing a number of exceptional efforts to claim 522 runs. The opener has claimed a new lease of life after being unburdened of the captaincy, and the likes of Nathanael Scott and Danny Ryan have also come up with the goods to propel them up the standings. All-rounders Paul Fleming and Jason Foulkes have also been key components of the squad, and both are relatively young which gives them plenty of scope for improvement in the future. Foulkes in particular has shone with 238 runs at the average of 29.75, while also helping himself to 23 wickets from 98 overs at a strike rate of 25. The presence of Amer Jamil has been welcome when he has been available, and if he can figure in more games between now and the end of the campaign then this is going to be another valuable commodity that the skipper can call upon in their time of need. Another plus is that they could have destiny in their own hands with Llandudno, Denbigh and Bangor still to play, while they will be looking for maximum points from contests against Mochdre and Chirk. Whatever the outcome at the end of the season, Ryan and his side can be proud of what they have done to not only establish the club as a force to be reckoned with, but also give the club plenty of encouragement long-term success in the coming years.
