Thanks very much Fr. Gregory and John!
I do not have time to read through this article, below, at the present (or make a real post), but I thought I would post this link in case anyone has trouble sleeping sometime.

Here's a tone for you:
Quote:His bold statement at the end is that his paper makes it clear Peter Gillquist and his colleagues "do not have a clear understanding of the Orthodox faith in its complexity." Yet Negrut has not only shown us his own ignorance in regards to Orthodoxy, but he has failed to prove this point. Instead of quoting Gillquist and presenting his viewpoint side-by-side with his own arguments, he briefly quotes Gillquist at the beginning and then proceeds to launch into distortions, theological misinterpretation, and blanket statements verified with no sources. The latter is especially amazing, given the 72 endnotes - only two of which quote Gillquist.
