because you're snockered on the Kool-Aid.
To clip is hip! I don't buy the bias.
And you trust that you are not...
Never touch the stuff.
I am trained as an historian,
well that makes two of us.
so my interest is in the truth,
the latest version of the Vatican's present truth, that is.
in so far as we can know it.
Your taking of pro-Brest fairy tales as the Gospel Truth belies that.
When you set your sources up against those collected during the canonization process, then maybe I'll pay attention to you.
Then ignore me.
As for sources from the canonization process, we have the well documented fraud in the service of a righteous cause known as the Nuremberg trials, and the circumstances of Kuntsevych's life and death are nowhere near as well documented, nor does his canonization qualify as a righteous cause.
The cause for canonization was taken up in 1628. The map of the area looked like this:
Why, it looks as if Vitebsk (Witebsk on the map) and Polotsk (Połock on the map) were under the heel of the King of Poland. Wonder if that affected the testimony any. Of course not. Haven't you read? Everyone rushed to embrace "the holy union" as Kuntsevych called it. That's why he was so popular with the populace that they had to kill him.
Till then I think you are drawing blood for your own purposes
Not drawing any blood. Just listening to the blood crying out to heaven.
and that has no credibility with me.
because it doesn't have your Vatican's nihil obstat and imprematur.
