Finno-Ugric Orthodoxy within Russia
« on: February 07, 2013, 04:23:14 PM »
What's the situation of Orthodoxy among Finno-Ugric people within Russian? Are there native clergy? Are services translated into native languages?
But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.
Leviticus 19:34

I know someone who has worked in Khanti-Mansi and learned the language, but he was Protestant at the time.

If you spend long enough on this forum, you'll come away with all sorts of weird, untrue ideas of Orthodox Christianity.

I would suggest most persons in general avoid any question beginning with why.
