      JRS: Are you saying that then-Archbishop Vitaly, when he wrote in 1984 that it was only a
      local measure, was offering "twisted logic"?

      > An anathema isn't a "measure";

      JRS: Perhaps it was a mistake to represent this as an anathema. The bishops, after all, did not
      really hurl any anathemas; they simply heard Vl. Afanassy say in his speech that "we ought to
      include the ecumenists and modernists among those anathematized in the Sunday of
      Orthodoxy service".
