Welcome to OrthodoxWiki!

Hello, Samson1957, and welcome to OrthodoxWiki!

Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Please note that OrthodoxWiki is always in development, so not everything works quite right yet. You can help, though!

OrthodoxWiki is a community-edited encyclopedia of Orthodox Christianity. Articles are created and edited by our members, and so everything that we do here is subject to review and revision. The result is a true consensus product, with every interested editor contributing his own knowledge and writing skills. As such, when you feel that criticism of an article is warranted, we encourage you to join in and fix it! Don't worry about breaking anything or doing something wrong—the other editors here are happy to jump in and help you learn.

ROCOR article

Hello! Thanks for your contributions to the ROCOR article, but they're not in keeping with the OrthodoxWiki Style Manual, most specifically the Mainstream Chalcedonian Bias. HOCNA's version of events (which seems to be what's guiding your edits) generally falls outside that mainstream, as I'm sure you're aware. Please follow the site's policies. Thank you! —Fr.

Thank you for your note, however you are not correct. There has never been any allegation that HOCNA left the greek archdiocese due to sexual scandal. While a sexual scadal has been alleged against HOCNA while they were part of ROCOR, there is no support for that which Fr. John is posting. His post is not footnoted or supported.

My second edit, referencing that the current patriarch was a KGB agaent is supported by a front page Wall Street Journal article, which I linked. Hiding from that truth, does not undo the truth.

If Fr. John can support his allegation in the first instance, then so be it. He cannot, and therefore did not reference a source. If Fr. John is upset that ROCOR's chief bishop was a government agent, that does not change the fact that it was reported and documented in a mainstream newspaper.

I stand by the edits.

Thank you
