The council should just discard the whole agenda and strongly recommend Orthodoxy and the Religion of the Future by Fr. Seraphim Rose instead.
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

Then go out for Cretan wine.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

I'd love to see loads of bishops singing God is with us emptying barrels of wine.

No, I don't think you would.  Buzzed clergy of any rank are always disappointing in the end...

Plot twist....every drunk heirarch knows the secret Orthodox drinking song:  God is with us in Finnish set to Stolpovoy chant.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Well, it was the most appropriate thing I could think of to describe the overall direction it was heading when I split it.

There is a photograph of Metropolitan Philip Saliba (Memory Eternal!) at a party with a number of delightful people from your jurisdiction, standing next to a beautiful women; he looks as though he has possibly enjoyed a beverage, but certainly is not even remotely drunk; I found this photo to be endearing.

I've always greatly admired the late Metropolitan; stumbling across a video of him on YouTube was a crucial moment in my conversion.  He had a beautiful voice.   I don't think I would object to His Eminence even if he were inebriated; I can't think of many people who I regard on that level.

Bearing in mind that I have never been plastered (I once tried, inadvisably and unsuccessfully, to get drunk a few years ago, and failed), if I were to be plastered I expect the Metropolitan would be an ideal person to get plastered with.

Also, I agree with The Trisagion: epic thread title.
Axios and many years to you, Fr. Trenham!

Father, why?

I'm deeply sorry for posting that. Or anything else ever for that matter.

When Christian News threads veer, then I try to steer them in the right direction.  That usually means leaving the Sanctuary of Peace that is the General Forum...

Stop. You're scaring us.

I super like how Father is locking nearly every thread on the Christian News forum. 

Wish the rest of the media in the US would take the hint.

Ummm... no.

I've locked a few.  Mostly, I've sent them elsewhere when they veer off the parameters for Christian News, so that people can have their 'fun' in a more appropriate forum.

Don't know about Drunk bishops but there is video of a plastered Greek Catholic priest floating around the interwebs.
