Having been on OC.net for about 2 years now, I developed a certain perspective or, if you will, an attitude, to this site.
I really hate views expressed by a number of people here. Both religious and political/social.
For example, I just can't stand the views of those who claim that EP is too "liberal" or, read, forgiving to the d-d Catholics who are behind the Mustashi who killed my Berbian brothers. And that the only antidote to the EP and the d-d Catholics and the evil NATO is the Orthodox Empire lead by Vladimir Putin.
I also really hate the views of those who say that Hollywood is perpetrating a propaganda glorifying abortion and homosexuality. And I really, really, strongly, most strongly hate the views of those of you who believe that the real problem with America is "liberals" and "Socialists."
And I do not understand... and, well, maybe "hate" here is a word that is way too strong, but, really, do not understand the views of those of you who say that evolution could not happen and cannot happen because the Fathers did not acknowledge it in their writings; or the views of those of you who believe that Adam passed to his progeny something that changed 1,000,000,000 of his genes all at once so that because of his disobedience all his progeny (i.e. we all) became "mortal and diseased and all that, you know what."
And with all my hate for many of the views of the many of those who write to this forum, I love you all.
And I believe that I am an OK Orthodox because of that. Not a "good" Orthodox because that does not exist, but an OK Orthodox, one who is in the making, one who is "work in progress."
But I am tired of you, of many of you and of this site. I hate the fact that when there were disagreements between me and some of you, I wrote long, elaborate messages to you and you did not bother to reply.
I hate what I view as signs of brainwashing. I hate what I view as signs of Fundamentalist, utterly non-Christian (in my understanding, most personal and subjective as it is) attitude to the world and to your partner in dialogue.
And I cannot get rid of the belief that these signs are peculiar to the United S. of A.
Am I right, or am I mistaken?
Please write to me personally because I do not want to stir a discussion on the site. Just let me know what you think in a PM.
Meanwhile, I will stick to the Facebook, which I found (recently) to be a lot more peaceful and interesting.
Praying for you all. Please pray for me.
