A Kiev art museum contains a curious icon from St. Catherine’s Monastery on Mt. Sinai in Israel. It shows two robed Christian saints. Between them is a traditional Roman ‘pronubus’ (a best man), overseeing a wedding. The pronubus is Christ. The married couple are both men.
Is the icon suggesting that a gay “wedding” is being sanctified by Christ himself? The idea seems shocking. But the full answer comes from other early Christian sources about the two men featured in the icon, St. Sergius and St. Bacchus, 2 two Roman soldiers who were Christian martyrs. These two officers in the Roman army incurred the anger of Emperor Maximian when they were exposed as ‘secret Christians’ by refusing to enter a pagan temple. Both were sent to Syria circa 303 CE where Bacchus is thought to have died while being flogged. Sergius survived torture but was later beheaded. Legend says that Bacchus appeared to the dying Sergius as an angel, telling him to be brave because they would soon be reunited in heaven.
While the pairing of saints, particularly in the early Christian church, was not unusual, the association of these two men was regarded as particularly intimate. Severus, the Patriarch of Antioch (512 - 518 CE) explained that, "we should not separate in speech they [Sergius and Bacchus] who were joined in life". This is not a case of simple “adelphopoiia.” In the definitive 10th century account of their lives, St. Sergius is openly celebrated as the “sweet companion and lover” of St. Bacchus. Sergius and Bacchus’s close relationship has led many modern scholars to believe they were lovers. But the most compelling evidence for this view is that the oldest text of their martyrology, written in New Testament Greek describes them as “erastai,” or “lovers”. In other words, they were a male homosexual couple. Their orientation and relationship was not only acknowledged, but it was fully accepted and celebrated by the early Christian church, which was far more tolerant than it is today.
Contrary to myth, Christianity’s concept of marriage has not been set in stone since the days of Christ, but has constantly evolved as a concept and ritual.

The best thing about all the set photos from Avengers 2

madmoll:

is that they’re all 300% more entertaining if you imagine that someone just out of frame just said something super offensive.

Exhibit A:

image

Quicksilver caught off guard by your extreme rudeness.

And then:

image

Cap’s getting real tired of your shit, douchebag.

#3:

image

Wanda and Clint think that joke was just a little off-color there, bro.

And!

image

Seriously, dude? Seriously?

And my personal favorite:

image

Even Tony Stark is speechless. Banner’s not even mad, just kinda impressed.

Anonymous asked: How did Zola recover Bucky if he was in the Allies' custody at the time?

frankenwhales:

He didn’t.

In Bucky’s little flashback scene in Cap 2, it was a Russian soldier who found him. He spoke Russian on the bridge. He has the red star on his arm.

Zola said that HYDRA had been guiding world history. Given that both the USA and USSR were two of the greatest superpowers in the wake of WWII, it makes sense that HYDRA would have infiltrated the KGB much in the same way they did SHIELD.

When the USSR fell, he probably got transferred to Pierce. One of his first assignments while working for the ‘SHIELD Sleepers’?

Death of Howard. December of ‘91. The same month the Soviet Union collapsed.

My explanation is that Zola didn’t find Bucky, he merely recognized and identified him. Even if he was in the stateside HYDRA sleeper cell, I imagine both communicated, especially during the Cold War. I wouldn’t be surprised if HYDRA pulled the strings throughout the Cold War in the MCU.

Also, Bucky’s had many different arms in the comics. It makes sense that when Zola was smirking as he choked a guy out, it was an upgraded version and not his original arm.

IMO Bucky’s flashbacks were in bits and pieces, quick flashes. His mind was so frazzled at that point I don’t see why they’d hit him in chronological sequence.

Guess who’s finally deciding to post some art?! not me because this looks like trash, not art
look at my babies I am so happy.
And this is how I always imagine their first real kiss—Clint would never kiss first, not in most instances, simply because Bruce is used to being used, being acted upon, and staying stagnant himself. Clint might flirt and wink and just be a general ball of romance, but he refuses to kiss Bruce first, because Bruce needs to make that first move. And when Bruce finally does, it would be after weeks of mental war with himself, after so long of staring at Clint, wondering whether he wants him or not, that Bruce now has every scar on Clint’s face catalogued, and he finally makes his move in something of desperation, like a drowning man gasping for air, and he’ pull Clint in, and to Bruce he’d feel too strong, too commandeering, too demanding, but in reality his hands would hover over Clint’s face, hardly touching, his body not touching Clint’s, his lips careful and gentle and just generally unforceful. And Clint would sigh in relief because he was sure he’d break before Bruce actually made a move.
And there’s my hulkeye kissing headcanon woo~

Fans are taking ‘Where’s Gamora?’ into their own hands

As many frustrated fans have pointed out online, much of the official Guardians of the Galaxy merchandise leaves out Gamora, one of the movie’s five titular Guardians, played by Zoe Saldana. Though Gamora has an equal amount of screen time as her male colleagues, and Saldana is second-billed after Chris Pratt, Gamora is mysteriously absent in some egregious ways.

Unfortunately, this is nothing new
