- Jan 2, 2003I am too, dismayed with such badgering going on before Christmas and overall. I thought this line was for FRIENDS of ROCOR ONLY, I believe that these people should be removed from the list since they have proved that they are not!
I pray that GOD may help them!
One very sinful and annoyed Cossack,

Let me point out that the impression one gets from these e-mail lists
is very much skewed. "All this wrangling" is the work of a very small
handful of people; they are heard from here, but not too much anywhere
else (though HTM would be the exception, as it has been wrangling since
However, the sad truth is that "all this" has driven many people away
from Orthodoxy and the Church over the years, who had been thinking of
joining or returning.
My recommendation is to visit an actual parish, rather than going only
by what you read here...
