Dear Kirk,

I appreciate you sharing your perspective. I used to be an active participant in another forum where there have been quite a few head-on collisions between Syrian Orthodox and Indian Orthodox over these sensitive matters, and I found it rather confusing in my attempt to follow the aftermath to be honest. The reason I would prefer not to take sides is precisely because I do not have any real means of being able to assess the arguments presented by each side. Most of the relevant material seems not to exist in english for one. An additional reason for which I would rather not take sides is that there has been a mixed reaction amongst non-Syrian/Indian clergy on the matter.

If there was a way I could avoid mentioning the issue all together I would, but it's inescapable that I should do so and it seems only reasonable that, in light of the above, I should strive to take the most displomatic and neutral stance possible. I hope you understand.

In XC
Andrew
