No, Virginia, Russian Orthodox life here in the USA didn’t begin with the posturing schmidiots at SVS… it started in thousands of humble homes across the Northeast and industrial Midwest. THESE are the TRUE founders of our Church… not the “scholars”… not the “converts”… not the “tithers and marchers”. These were people who worked in the mines and mills… who took the lead on the work-site and on the picket-line. They fought hard for JUSTICE… and they mostly won it. This is our heritage and legacy…

Don’t let posturing “Pan-Orthodox/rightwing” fanatics take away our Church. Remember our babas and dedes…
