I am quite confused by the last several postings- why has the topic of a
website and its quality or lack thereof turned into a critique of Met. Vitaly,
ROCIE and ROCOR and its clergy?? I don't get the connection. And while it
would be nice to have a site where one could read "the truth," one must ask,
the truth according to whom? Would it be like these small groups who are
self-proclaimed "True" Orthodox? According to whom? By what standard? I view
the internet as primarily entertainment, and do not believe that which I have
not seen myself, or which was experienced first hand by a trusted friend. If
you expect the "truth" on ANY site, you will never get better than a partial
truth! My knowledge of the ROCOR/ROCIE situation regarding Met. Vitaly comes
from speaking with someone present at one of the kidnapping attempts, seeing
actual photographs (not those on the internet), and conversations with others
actually involved in the situation. I believe NOTHING I have only read on the
internet, no matter who says it! I think we would all be wise to do likewise,
and cease the gossip about this situation, leaving it to those actually ROCOR
or ROCIE members.
