One more branch...

Reader comment on item: A Christian Boom

Submitted by Arcady Ziloff (United States), Nov 26, 2002 at 15:35

Dear Daniel,

This article was very interesting, as almost all previous ones.

I want to add only that this article omits one more important part of Christianity, "Eastern" branch with 200,000,000 followers in Russia, Greece, Serbia, Ukraine, Georgia, Romania, Armenia, Ethiopia, Bulgaria, USA, even in Japan.

I'm not a Christian, I'm Jewish by roots and agnostic with total respect of all Jewish traditions.

Originally I'm from Moscow (13 years in USA) and I never had any positive thoughts about Eastern Orthodoxy…until recent events in former Yugoslavia.

Pro-islamist position of Clinton and CNN wasn't a big surprise for me; I rather was surprised by level of cynicism of this betrayal. US media is totally blind about the situation of the Christians in Indonesia, Egypt, Sudan – and now Nigeria.

The viewpoints of BBC or CNN about Chechnya aren't too different from their reports about Israel. And CNN has little interest in the total destruction of Orthodox Churches in Kosovo, even considering age and cultural value of Byzantine period constructions…
Submitting....
