Dear Mr. Boitchenko,
"I hope you were not expecting someone in the Church Abroad to argue
that Communism was good for Russia".
Indeed, I was not expecting this. I was not expecting either that
priests of our Church on this site would argue that sergianism was
good for the Church allegedly because there was "no alternative".

I hope you were not expecting someone in the Church Abroad to argue
that Communism was good for Russia.

analogy as it seems. Occupation of France was not so terrible!!!
French people were considered Arians by the Nazi. No one has heard of
them driven to camps. French Resistance never exceeded 200.000 (less
than size of a decent army). However, quite on the cotrary, Nazi
invaded Russia with three armies and Russia's loss in WWII was 20
million. Now, the numbers are quite comparable with the exception
that the Communists killed 20 million over a period of 70 years and
the Nazi did the same in 4 years.
