Maybe the priest was taking a fool-for-Christ track and was actually making an anti-Putin statement. Either way, I enjoy the look of horror on Putin's face.

This is what I prefer to believe.

A monk at the Valaam Monastery in northwestern Russia explained why he had kissed Vladimir Putin’s hand during the Russian president’s visit, the monastery’s spokesman Mikhail Shishkov said on Tuesday.

Hopefully they are on a trail of tears ending in Siberia.

Does that mean WASPs should send all EO converts to Guantanamo? Are you packed already?

I don't get this ^^ comparison. The group in question isn't on trial for converting from Orthodoxy to a different denomination.
