- Jun 18, 2002It 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."
