I want to post a question, but I don't want it to turn into an angry debate, I don't want to introduce discord into this forum, but I would just like to get some opinions. I read another forum, but post very infrequently. I shouldn't even read it, because I generally find it depressing and full of some very angry stuff (yes, it is an Orthodox forum.) However, recently there have been posts linking to "Illuminati" sites, Protocols of the Elders of Zion, crop circles, you get the idea. To my shock, people defend this sort of stuff. I am NOT talking about valid criticism of Israel, or anything like that. I'm refering to very "out there" sites, for example, I found out tonight that Bill Frist is the Antichrist, I'm always the last to know!!
I have no idea whether the people posting are Orthodox Christians or not. I guess my question is: have really wacko types just found a forum where their posts are not *universally* attacked, or do you find a lot of younger Orthodox buy into this stuff? I can't understand why the moderators allow this, but who knows? Some of this is however, really virulent anti-semitism, and I find it upsetting. I even talked to my priest about this a while back. Like I said, these are not legitimate concerns that are being posted, but just very thinly disguised hatred.
