Dear Hal and Anhelyna,
So I guess it's O.K. to have a presidential candidate who is a bandit and a gangster . . . so long as he is a (canonical) Orthodox Christian?
During the debate between Yuschenko and Yanukovych, Yuschenko turned to the gentleman on the subject of religion and told him that since he says he is a believer, then he should know what the Decalogue states about stealing.
And yet, Yuschenko continued, it is known that you took more than $350 million from the people etc.
The UOC-MP and ROC should really be careful which candidate they support here.
You know what they say about associating with bandits . . .
Sorry, Hal, I didn't mean to steal your thunder here . . .
There was an article up here by a fellow trying to write about the history of Eastern Catholics since the Union of Brest.
He seems to think that Ukrainian Catholics began with the Council of Florence, for starters . . .
The article really goes down hill from there.
Western journalists like to make simplistic divides, such as the Catholic-Orthodox divide they impose on the presidential campaign north of the Black Sea.
It would be great to have so many Ukie Catholics there, but there simply aren't!
Ah well, we'll see what happens after Sunday.
