What else isn’t new? Shit of this sort has been going on in Finland for decades. It’s goofy… it’s sad… but it’s what they’ve DONE for a LOOONG time. It’s wrong, but it isn’t serious. If it happened in Bucharest, Athens, Belgrade, or Warsaw… or even SVS… it’d be news and BIG NEWS. Coming from Finland, it’s HO-HUM. “What have they done this time?” The only question is whether schmidiots like Dreher will snap at this bait and claim that the sky’s falling. It’s “business as usual” in Helsinki. One of these days, they’ll step over the line, the Local Churches will have enough, and give ‘em the heave-ho. Leave it to the bishops… one last thing… this bunch is LOVED by the SVS gang. Caveat emptor…

Orthodox Metropolitan Ambrosius of Helsinki of the Finnish Orthodox Church invited female Evangelical Lutheran bishop Irja Askola to Altar with him during Clergy ordination at the Sunday Divine Liturgy. This sparked much controversy. He also ordered the Deacons to pray for the Lutheran woman bishop during litany. This angered several Orthodox faithful. Archbishop Leo… the First Hierarch of the Finnish Orthodox Church… condemned the incident and asked Metropolitan Ambrosius to clarify the issue before considering any measures against him. Major Finnish newspapers reported the incident. Archbishop Leo released an official statement on the controversial incident, available at the Finnish Church official website.

Orthodox Search Engine Hacked After Five Hours… Smells Like Uniate Hackers…

_______________________________

As they pushed the test run button to begin it, the developers of a new Orthodox search engine said, “Seek and ye shall find”. However, hackers brought down the site just five hours after it appeared online. As the Orthodox Church gains broader influence in Russia and around world, Russian feature film director Yuri Grymov decided to try to connect like-minded people by creating an Orthodox search engine and social network. The results of his labours saw the red ribbon cut Tuesday… but the triumphant mood didn’t last for long. On Wednesday, Grymov told TASS, “Yesterday, we launched the site in test run mode. However, after just five hours, someone attacked it. I’m so surprised and upset that constructive ideas are like burrs in the saddle to some”. The site remained non-operational Wednesday night, with the main page claiming a DDoS-attack.
