[orthodox-synod] Re: Apology

<< As unfair - and as inaccurate -- as it may be, anything
that even suggests the swastika, including a pre-Nazi era Russian Orthodox
church vestment, is inappropriate as a design element for an Orthodox
Christian web site. It is simply too open to misinterpretation.
>>It must all be in the eye of the beholder! I checked out the design and it
never even entered my mind that there might be a swastika symbol present, or
even remotely. I didn't know about the "Greek curl" either. It just looked
like an attractive pattern.
I personally think the above statement is a little too strong and do not
think it needs changing. But then I guess that is debatable.
- I apologize. This note was meant to be a humorous personal correspondence to
a friend. Somehow, in my haste, I accidentally posted it to the entire Synod
mailing list. Again, my apologies...please disregard it.

- Unfortunately your note did reach this list. Le mal est fait! (the
harm is done)
So, I think that the least you could do now is either disclaim the
slander you poured on Vladika Anthony or prove the facts.
Leaving calumnies unexplained (even if they were addressed by
mistake) is really wrong.
