The simple point, James (and Mor), was to check on the veracity of the statements made *WITHOUT* naming either the individual or the forum where some statements were made, whether you think you recognize him/her or the forum or not. There is no "ad hominem" here BECAUSE the individual is *not* named. Neither is the forum.
I recognise this, and that is why I was somewhat confused on how to address this, and yet I felt I must address it. That you sought to check the veracity of these statements without naming either the individual or the forum is not what I had a problem with, for you seemed to do that with Orthodoc in the first few posts and got it settled, saying "Yes, Orthodoc, the very same." But immediately after that statement (and the positive ID) came a lot of stuff that seemed to me to be at least unnecessary. That is what puzzled me.
But I still have not received any answer to my original question about whether or not certain Latin devotions, e.g., Benediction and Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, Stations of the Cross, etc., have actually entered into the worship of the Western Ukrainian Orthodox parish churches, and as to whether anyone in this forum has been to Ukraine and personally has knowledge of such practices. Such questions/discussions are ordinarily banned elsewhere. Will that now be the case here too?
If I'm not mistaken, Tony addressed this point in his last post. As for this topic being banned here, I cannot see any reason why it should be banned.
God bless you and James.
