On translator Isabel Hapgood: “That vixen Miss Hapgood. What a liar – she has damned the Church for years.”
I think this is talked about in:American Orthodox History-http://ancientfaith.com/podcasts/historyShe was a Protestant woman who was clearly (in my opinion) too liberal in her ideas and I think that maybe some of the translations were poor and not entirely theologically accurate. (though It was a couple days since I listened to the podcast so I may be wrong)That point of view though comes from what I heard on the podcast, so I don't know anything beyond what is said in the podcast.
The Cathedral Choir, propertly constituted large enough, is immensely more important to your Church and Mission in this country than twenty little new parishes. . . . There is nothing which can exert so great an influence on the best, most influential part of the public here as can a splendid Cathedral Choir.
Interesting.From a letter from Hapgood to St. Tikhon:QuoteThe Cathedral Choir, propertly constituted large enough, is immensely more important to your Church and Mission in this country than twenty little new parishes. . . . There is nothing which can exert so great an influence on the best, most influential part of the public here as can a splendid Cathedral Choir.If that's the sort of advice she was giving him, I can see why I parish priest might be upset about her influence. And quite rightly.Out of curiosity, ozgeorge, other than the quote about Hapgood--for which the context is still in question--what do you find objectionable about Fr. Nathaniel's quotes?

I'm not sure how I feel about people taking a comment from a message board (that it is my message board is tangential) and then instead of replying on said message board, creating a post elsewhere about it (I don't mind the hits though!) Message boards are communities of people who have their own histories, identities, personalities, positions, and relationships with one another, and in effect the post in question is taken from a snapshot in time, and out of the total context of the community. The author states he would credit the author if he knew his name--he would know his name if he were part of our community. There's something odd about that, but then again, message boards are public, hence my unsureness. The author of that comment is on my FB friends list coincidentally. I will forward this post to him so he is aware of it and can contact the author of this piece if he wishes.
I'm not a member of word press so I cant comment on the blog,
and we are not friends on facebook so I don't have the option to comment there either.
Hopefully the author will come here and expose himself to a bit of peer review. Judging from the other comments the author has received on his facebook entry of the article, others have taken issue with what he has claimed as well.
Sign up. It's quite easy.

Firstly, the author is quoting this forum on his blog, so I think its basically "sheep stealing" to try and attract people from the forum to his blog. If the author has a problem with something stated on this forum, he should discuss it on this forum as an equal, not take control of the discourse on a blog.
