'''Typhoon Irma''', known in the Philippines as '''Typhoon Anding''', was a powerful typhoon that struck the [[Philippines]] in November 1981. The twenty-fifth named storm and fourteenth typhoon of the [[1981 Pacific typhoon season]], Irma originated from an active [[monsoon trough]] to the east of the Philippines. The cyclone slowly developed as it moved westward. Following an increase in organization, the system was first classified on November&nbsp;18 and was subsequently upgraded into a tropical storm on the next day. After passing near [[Guam]], Irma continued to deepen, and was estimated to have attained typhoon intensity early on November&nbsp;21. The intensification rate accelerated thereafter, and on the afternoon of November&nbsp;22, Irma reached its peak [[maximum sustained wind|wind speed]] of {{convert|205|km/h|mph|round=5|abbr=on}}. After maintaining this intensity for 16&nbsp;hours, Irma weakened considerably due to interaction with the mountainous terrain of the Philippines. On the morning of November&nbsp;24, Irma moved [[landfall (meteorology)|ashore]] northeast of [[Manila]], with winds of {{convert|165|km/h|mph|round=5|abbr=on}}. The storm rapidly deteriorated overland, but was still believed to have been a typhoon when it emerged into the [[South China Sea]]. Typhoon Irma then began to re-curve towards the northwest while weakening; the cyclone was estimated to have obtained [[extratropical cyclone|extratropical characteristics]] on November&nbsp;26.

Affecting an area already severely impacted by [[1981 Pacific typhoon season#Typhoon Hazen (Yeyeng)|Typhoon Hazen]], Typhoon Irma brought significant damage and flooding to the Philippines, especially in the province of [[Camarines Norte]]. Additionally, a {{convert|50|ft|m|abbr=on|round=5|order=flip}} tidal wave was noted in four towns in the [[Camarines Sur]] province, resulting in the deaths of 137&nbsp;people. The nearby village of Benagaspasan was nearly demolished, where 47&nbsp;fatalities occurred. In all, 595&nbsp;were killed due to Irma. A total of 482,678 persons were directly affected by Typhoon Irma. Irma destroyed or damaged 119,233&nbsp;dwellings, which left nearly 40,000&nbsp;homeless. A total of 24,137&nbsp;families or 141,974&nbsp;individuals left their homes, including 57,198 that sought emergency shelter.

Hyperplural, permissive, state-controlled consumerist society: minutely documented

Notre Dame historian [[Brad Stephan Gregory]] in his multi-awarded ''The Unintended Reformation: How a Religious Revolution Secularized Society'', published by [[Harvard University Press]], argues that many ills of the secularized world, which he calls "Kingdom of Whatever", were unintended but essential consequences of the reformation. The contemporary world's hyperpluralism, relativism, lack of philosophical consensus on the most important things in life or what he calls "Life Questions" (such as the person one should become), and its individualist, egocentric subjectivism ('to think and do and live' as one may please, to 'exercise their wills as they will – the summum bonum') can be historically traced to sola scriptura, granting exclusive authority to the bible, which can be interpreted whichever way by anyone. Through the Reformation emerged "the new and compounding problem of how to know what true Christianity was. 'Scripture alone' was not a solution to this new problem, but its cause."

The modern secular state's control over morality and religion as shown for example in state imposition of the right to abortion and homosexual union is traced to the Reformation split between politics and morality (with theology), which were all united in pre-Reformation Europe. Luther's doctrine of the two-kingdoms "implicitly theorized the control of human bodies and thus human beings by secular authorities ... power [was] exercised by secular rulers alone." After the Reformation, Gregory says, "secular rulers were the sole stewards of the public sphere within which alone the flesh-and-blood social relationships of Christian life unfolded." With the transition from [[virtue ethics]] to an ethics of rights, Christianity "was radically redefined as a private and highly circumscribed matter of individual preference". With this, we now have "millions of divorces which, for decades, have exacted vast human costs. All this, too, is the product of individuals exercising their legally protected liberty, guided by the dominate ethos of a therapeutic society based on feelings."

Can someone explain to me why this article was renamed and moved? Where did that consensus come from?

:The move discussion was withdrawn by the requester. The RM could have been considered invalid in the first place because both the target page and the page to be moved had content. Since the split was done accordingly, the target page was considered the "official page", making the page to be moved a redirect. The opposition was not overwhelming because only 2 editors, including myself, opposed. To make it count, I switch my vote from oppose to support, if it means the pages will remain where they are. Moreover, there was already consensus to split and change the title in the 2014 proposal and while the editors who participated in the RM did not definitely say support or oppose, interpreting the discussion shows that these editors were in favor of going ahead with the move. — <span style="background:#0F4D92;color:white;padding:1px 10px;">[[User:Zawl|<span style="color:white;font-variant:Small-caps;">'''Za'''</span>]][[User talk:Zawl|<span style="color:white;font-variant:Small-caps;">'''wl'''</span>]]</span> 07:45, 10 February 2018 (UTC)

'''Евангелическо-лютеранская церковь в Республике Молдова''' (ЕЛЦРМ) (unofficial English translation: The Evangelical Lutheran Church in the Republic of Moldova (ELCRM)) is a small Lutheran church body in the Republic of Moldova. Reverend Vladimir Moser is superintendent of ELCRM.<ref>http://lutheran.md/</ref> The Lutheran Church in Moldova has its roots in 18th Century. Natalia and Vladimir Moser took initiative to rebuild the Lutheran church in Moldova in 1994. In 1997 Vladimir Moser was ordained and appointed as a preacher of the congregation in Tiraspol. Moser founded congregations in Bender, Chisinau, Rybnitsa and Camenca. The Evangelical Lutheran Church in the Republic of Moldova was registered formally with the authorities of Moldova in spring 1999. Norsk Luthersk Lekmannsmisjon (NLL) started missionary work in Moldova in fall 1999 and made a formal cooperation agreement with ELCRM. After a short time also Nordisk Östmission (NÖ) started missionary work with ELCRM. Through the financial support from NÖ, it has made possible to buy, for example the Lutheran Center, a car and a garage for the church, instruments for revival meetings, as well as liturgical equipments.<ref>http://www.nordiskostmission.se/tidningen/no2006_1.pdf</ref>

You must judge for yourselves how far Mr. Roy has been able to achieve the ends at which he is obviously aiming. His work will repay study. I see in it as I see in much of the painting in India today a real endeavour to recover a national art that shall be free from the sophisticated tradition of other countries, which have had a continuous art history. The work of those who are endeavouring to revive Indian art is commonly not appreciated in its true significance. It is sometimes assumed that revival means no more than a return to the methods and traditions of the past. That would be to create a school of copyists without visions and ideals of their own.
