Nobody said the other version was fine.

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

still there is a phenomenon when accusing a bishop of being homosexual is badmouthing and accusing a bishop of being heterosexual is perfectly fine. Double standards.

Are you somehow suprised? Just another instance of Orthodox being Orthodox. Not particularly fair but that's how people are.
I just need to find out how to say it in Slavonic!

You have not attacked him for saying that, in contrary to what you did to me.

No.

Sorry Mrs Symonenko for offending your pious feelings about the hierarchy . What I meant though wasnt that all bishops are gay but that gay men that wanna be bishops should stay in the closet. It's the orthodox modus operandi.

I've not attacked you.  I've merely stated my disagreement with the things that were said.  It's part of "discussion".

....besides, he didn't make a blanket statement...that "ALL" hierarchs are fooling around...did he?

;)   ...no need for formalities.  You can call me "Liza".

I agree.  Whether they are "gay" or not truly the issue.  They need to be celibate, uphold the teachings of the Church and be good examples.  It is a condition of the post.
