Notice concerning The Saker blog
Christ is risen!
I am an Orthodox Christian in the ROCOR under Vl. Agafangel, a Sister Church to the GOC. I am very disturbed by the idea reflected on your blog, https://thesaker.is, that Moslems and Christians have the same God. Your relationships with Moslems is inappropriate. A true Orthodox Christian should not closely associate with a Moslem except to convert him.
Neither does a true Orthodox Christian hobnob with blasphemers of Christ. To name one: your featured blog contributor: Eric Zuesse, author of Christ's Ventriloquists.
Everyone is allowed their opinion, so this is not the cause of my writing to you today. What concerns me is that it is known you are a member of the GOC, and your opinions/associations are made public. Your indifference to the truth is offensive to the Church, and those who love the Church should be offended. Apparently though, you are permitted to continue unimpeded.
It is too late for you to be anonymous on your blog. The only solution I see is for your blog to close; or else, for you to disassociate yourself from the Sister Churches. If Andrei Raevsky were in the MP or the ROCOR-MP, then The Saker could publish as he pleases without offending my Church.
I am also a blogger, owner of http://remnantrocor.blogspot.com. And I am transparent about my Church. I have pointed a good number of potential catechumens to the GOC, some of whom have made it to the baptismal font, and some with monastic leanings. My readers come to me with questions, and I give them open and honest answers best as I can. That includes being honest about The Saker blog.
This note is to let you know that on my blog I will speak out against The Saker blog. This is not to debate with you about specific things you post or allow others to post. Rather, it is only in general, to warn my readers that the owner of The Saker blogis not a representative or example of true Orthodox Christianity, despite his membership in the GOC.
