Talk:Vicariate for Palestinian-Jordanian Communities in the USA
Though the official name of the vicariate includes a slash (/), this article is named with a hyphen (-) due to the technicalities of wiki-naming, i.e., a slash would make the wiki software think that this was a sub-article. Keep this in mind when linking to this article, and please don't rename it to include the slash. Thanks.
The preferred format for linking to this article is: [[Vicariate for Palestinian-Jordanian Communities in the USA|Vicariate for Palestinian/Jordanian Communities in the USA]]
Questions about the accuracy of claims made
I have been told from very reliable sources that there was no agreement to transfer parishes to the GOA, and that only a few parishes have actually transfered into the GOA. Frjohnwhiteford 14:51, August 23, 2008 (UTC)
- Are these sources published? They'd need to be, if they're going to be represented here over against the official press release from the GOA. —Fr. Andrew talk contribs (THINK!) 18:30, August 23, 2008 (UTC)
They've been confirmed on OrthodoxNews: http://orthodoxnews.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=USNews.one&content_id=17215&CFID=125798765&CFTOKEN=20327348 —The preceding unsigned comment was added by JosephSuaiden (talk • contribs) 23 October 2008.
- This article was a reprint from the weekly publication The National Herald. An op-ed commentary in the same publication challenged the veracity of the article, calling it "tendentious and somewhat sensationalistic." See http://www.orthodoxnews.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=EditorialsOpinion.one&content_id=17238&CFID=126960091&CFTOKEN=60292395 I would respectfully submit that the original article cannot be considered a reliable source, as the one person interviewed appears to be speaking for himself and not for parishes in the vicarate.
