      That is nonsense. Unlike the Calvinists, St.
      Augustine clearly taught that Adam did not have to
      fall, but fell by free choice. This is a very
      significant difference in terms of the implications
      about who God is.

      If only we had 1/2 the real sense of Orthodoxy that
      St. Augustine had on a bad day.
