      It has nothing to do with being isolationalists. There would be no problem
      if the Serbian Church would get out of the heretical organization WCC. It is
      the Serbian Church that does not want to be in communion with it's brethren
      by being involved with the heretical organization WCC.
      Fr.Justin Popovich a much revered Father of the Serbian Church called the
      WCC a prostitute.
      No one cares that the Church is in the heretical organization?

      Our Church, since the reprehensible NATO "intervention" (i.e. act of
      War) in Kosovo, has been praying for the suffering Orthodox people of
      Serbia, where a favorite torture of (Islamic) terrorist Albanians has
      been to cut off the thumb and first two fingers of their Serb victims,
      so that they cannot proerly form their hands to cross themselves!

      Vladyka Antony (Medvedev)of blessed memory was similarly and just as
      ignorantly criticised for allowing a Serb bishop to serve in the SF
      cathedral several years back.

      Let us not forget, as he then noted from the Ambo, the important and
      salvationary role the Serb church played in protecting their Orthodox
      brethren fleeing the red terror. Indeed, many of our most esteemed
      hierarchs were educated in Belgrade (INCLUDING St. John of

      To make a gross generalization, Serbs may not all be the most pious of
      people, but, again, they are our Orthodox brethren and among the
      closest of all, historically, to ROCOR. I cannot understand this
      desire to be so isolationist, or this hunger to find fault.

      "And why beholdest thou the splinter that is in thy brother's eye, but
      perceivest not the beam that is in thine own eye?... Thou hypocrite,
      cast out first the beam out of thine own eye, and then shalt thou see
      clearly to pull out the splinter that is in thy brother's eye."

      In Christ's love,
