one can find teh same contention provoking topics on each,
but that is what I am trying to change.
I think I also disagree with the pitiableness. As Fr
Gregory sais, we don't have time for all this contention.
Fr Alexander created the jurisdictions list to draw away
the unedifying (to most) interjurisdictional debate from
the main ORTHODOX list (@...). From what
you say Fr John allows (and maybe enjoys?) such discussions
on his ROCOR list and there's nothing wrong with that, but
can we not have a place free of this tension of constant
dialectic between Eastern Catholics, Moscow Patriarchate
or whatever? Is ROCA such a limited interest group
that we have nothing to discuss or disseminate amongst
ourselves? I created orthodox-synod nearly ten years
ago as the first sublist of the ORTHODOX list and as a
refuge from this fare which is available on so many other
forums as you have noted. Especially before a Great Feast
such fare always degrades - to the joy of whom?
