For those that read my previous post, I gladly retract what I said earlier. Now, having read the pre-history in other folders, I realize that this is much more than just a simple case of kneeling babas. I didn't realize that there was the issue of the filioque, and that they were petitioning to get rid of the pastor! That, of course, is an absolute and profound outrage, and in my opinion, they deserved a loving, but firm fatherly rebuke from their bishop. It's unfortunate that he appears to have merely affirmed them in their ignorance and intransigence.
I apologize to Anthony for being too quick to judge the situation without all the details.
Peace and all good things,
