That wasn't ad hominem, but thank you for your welcome :-)
Ad hominem is implying that a person's arguments are invalid because of something about them as a person.
Now, will you please answer my question? Are you, in fact, in favor of gay unions within the Orthodox Church? Would you be willing to engage on a substantive discussion at the issue at hand?
The uncharitable assumptions about the Brotherhood of St. Kosmas, which fly in the face of the evidence, serve no purpose and would probably be best avoided. For that matter, the stereotypes about converts are probably also unnecessary, especially since most of the original people raising these concerns are Russian, Greek, and Finnish cradle Orthodox Christians.
