Probably a good idea for any news item remotely involving the Balkans. The comments are depressingly predictable.

Good to read it. I've always liked Tom Hanks (especially because Forrest Gump), even when I didn't know he's an Orthodox, and now I like him even more. I think you have some courage to say something like that in the Hollywood's world.

Yeah, but Castaway was a profound allegory about the state of the soul outside communion with God, and it's eventual redemption in finding God through suffering and perseverance.

Because even it's name is Serbian? Someone built all of the Orthodox Monasteries and Church that dot the landscape other than the current occupants who seem determined to desecrate every Orthodox Christian thing that they find there.
