… unfortunately, the com-boxes here are beginning to turn into polemical devices. I am not against friendly, charitable debate on the topics presented here, as long as the comments do not get too far off the original topic of the post. I am now moderating the comments. I mean no offense if your comment is not accepted. But I will delete comments that I deem to be veering off-topic, or that could be interpreted as being too combatative (and I won’t show favoritism: this applies to both Orthodox and Catholics!). Thanks to all who have left comments so far.
