On one (non-religious) forum I participate in, there's one rather loud Serbian fellow who, whenever Orthodoxy comes up, always claims that his country represents true Orthodoxy and that the diaspora has gone astray. The example he gives is that in the U.S. the Serbian Church allows marriage between an Orthodox and a non-Orthodox Christian. This example seems rather lame, as both the Romanian Orthodox Church and the Russian Orthodox Church allow intermarriage. Anyway, is this a common opinion in Serbia?
In Romania (can't speak for Finland yet), I don't think people have any kind of opinion about Orthodoxy in America, except that it's nice that the faith attracts converts. I'm just amazed that this Serb has such strong opinions.
And my question is not limited just to Serbs, but to all "old-country" Orthodox: do you have any especial dislike of the diaspora?
