    Should we care about St. Nicholas, NYC?

    Since the new Metropolitan has been sent to drag GOARCH (and with the hope of the rest of North America, no doubt) into schism and heresy with his homeland the Fener, I no longer have any interest. No, as a taxpayer, I do: let the US keep the money rather than waste it.

    AUTONOMY AND THE MEANS OF PROCLAIMING IT https://mospat.ru/en/2016/01/28/news127358/ (Notice that Autocephaly isn't dealt with in the proposed documents; however, in the wording of this here I see the Phanar's nose sticking into the tent) It's an internal affair of the Autocephalous...
