What do you think about this article?

http://theorthodoxchurch.info/blog/news/2014/07/an-orthodox-future-for-finland/

I have seen criticism of the finnish choice of calendar before, but this guy is extreme.

I can say this kind of article is the last thing an inquirer wants to see. I'm bemused by radical Russians' idea (evident from their various online resources) that potential converts want any part in such fights.

LOL that's not Uspenski Cathedral. I don't what church that is but certainly not Uspenski. I don't know who wrote that but apparently he/she can't use Google.

The author seem to know some facts about the Finnish church but he/she seem to have issues with EP which he/she imposes on us. I'd say don't lose your night sleep over the article.

He/she gets something right though. Many of the modern Finnish churches are frankly quite ugly and everybody I know agree with that. IIRC even nuns of the Lintula convent dislike their church. Cheesy

The article is from the Orthodox England site. The articles on that site are getting increasingly ridiculous in their strident, almost fanatical Russophilia, and should be taken with a heap of salt.

I was wondering about that. I didn't recall the grounds being on such a plateau in the middle of the capital.

If Russia was ever to be Third Rome, it was only because of preserving the spirit of the Fathers once Constantinople could no longer. So if there is a place in the world that will more perfectly preserve and nurture the spirit of the Fathers, then that is the place to which deserves to be the heart of the Church, and no other. Historical claims have real limits.
