      Dear Brethren,

      I just feel that it is a shame that one hate-filled irrational post from
      Vladimir Kozyreff has elicited another hate-filled irrational post from
      Vladimir Hindrichs! When are you two (and those who think like you two)
      going to wake up from your ideological dreaming and face reality.

      We are supposed to be Christians, for heaven's sake, Orthodox Christians!
      "Let us love one another that with one mind we may confess: Father, Son,
      and Holy Spirit, the Trinity one in essence and indivisible." Why don't
      we try to imitate our Creator Who is Love, one in essence, and
      indivisible. Hasn't this tragedy taught us anything about the shortness
      of life and how at any time we may be called to stand before the dread
      judgment seat of Christ. The Saviour has taught us, "By your words shall
      ye be justified and by your words shall ye be condemned."

      I hope that the Vladimirs will both learn from their heavenly Patron who
      turned from a ravening wolf into Christ's own lamb.

      Please forgive me for my own hypocrisy.
