Thanks for providing this link. And a big thanks to St. Vlad's for providing the audio for the talks online. The diverse backgrounds of the speakers resulted in some unexpected though informative points of view.
I admire Taft immensely, and he is undoubtedly the living world-authority on the liturgy, but I have heard he is a big fan of the whole gender-neutral language phenomenon so infecting the Ruthenian Church in the USA, is this true?
TO ask third parties if he is a "big fan" of something is inviting a good deal of speculation... Maybe we can find what he has written, if he has written anything on the matter?
What his views are and what he has written directly on the issue of gender-neutral language is a good question. His McMAnus Award lecture

, produces a lot of smoke but no actual fire.
A comment on the symposium: His keynote address was informative, but I especially liked his remarks and questions that followed the other symposium talks, especially that of Spinks.
