His Holiness Pope Shenouda III and what you claim against him...
My Dear Brother,
How are you? I hope you are doing well.
I am very upset because what is written about His Holiness is absolutely 100% false and you won't allow me to correct it. I know for a fact that everything written is not true. How can you allow such things to be written? I don't understand where you get such ideas. His Holiness is a strong defender of Orthodoxy and he does not believe in any of what you have kept here on this page. Please show me what are your sources and I will prove to you this is false information. His Holiness is coming to visit in 1 month and I plan on presenting him with a copy of what is written so he can clarify it and if he has time, I will ask him to discuss it with us and I will ask to record the conversation.
I really hope you understand why I am upset about this situation. I hope to hear from you soon. Please keep me in your prayers.

- There are even more points, including Pope Shenouda's 'denial that the Holy Spirit can dwell in the faithful', and Pope Shenouda's famous 'three bodies of Christ' theory adapted from Protestant writings (in their interpretation of what we receive in the Eucharist). All these issues are fully documented and referenced from Pope Shenouda's published writings/books and audio/video lectures. I invite you to read more about the Orthodox doctrine of theosis, the Barlaamite Controversy (14th century), as well as Pope Shenouda's writings against Pope Kyrillos VI in El-Keraza magazine during the sixties of the past century. --Arbible 00:59, April 27, 2007 (PDT)
His Eminence Metropolitan Bishoy...
My Dear Brother
I realized that you also protected his page when all you are doing is hurting him, not protecting him. Everything he said was taken out of context. Please realize that it is the enemies of the Church who do such things in order to create problems. Please allow me to edit this page as well. I can't stand to see this lies written about His Holiness and Metropolitan Bishoy. They are 2 of the greatest Theologians of our time and great defenders of Orthodoxy and they are being persected a lot as Saint Athanasius the Great was.
I hope once again that you understand me. Please keep me in your prayers.

Some of your recent comments have been somewhat less than civil. Please adopt a calmer, friendlier tone when discussing articles with other editors. Additionally, please understand that articles should ideally represent all major points of view on a subject, even if we personally do not agree with those points of view. Thanks! —Fr.
