ABC Wednesday "I" is for 'incongruous'


Stefan Nemanja (1109 – 1199) was a Medieval Serb nobleman. He established control over the territories of neighboring Serb states, and unified them into a single state. He founded the Nemanjić dynasty and became recognized as an Orthodox Christian Saint (Simeon) after numerous miracles following his death.

This photo shows the Church of Saint Simeon currently under construction in New Belgrade.

"Incongruous" indeed, with the juxtaposition of posters for the group Slipknot's upcoming visit to Belgrade. "All hope is gone," say they, but churches claim that there's always hope.

What a shot! You found quite a pairing. When V says "Lord have mercy," I believe she means it literally.

Incongruous is a very good 'I' word.

Oh Lord, have mercy!
WTF? This is insane! Why did they post that on whole wall arround the church? One wasn't enough? Many grrs go through my mind now, but I'll keep them for myself, since there are some nice people here. Anyway, do you maybe have a zoomed out photo of this aswell? I'd like to post it in my blog if I can.

I think it's too bad that they're building this church.

I liked that communist-created New Belgrade was entirely without churches.

Should have stayed that way.
