“The more I study the history of the Orthodox Church in this country, the more I am convinced that our work here is God's work; that God himself is helping us; that when it seems as though everything we do is ready to fail, …on the contrary, it not only does not die, but grows in new strength and brilliance.” [said just before leaving the United States for Russia]

Remember the destruction by the Taliban of irreplaceable Buddhist statues? Raising an outcry about that (which I did, because it was the right thing to do) was hip. Raising an outcry about the destruction of churches hundreds of years old is apparently not as hip.

There is little that we can do to stop the spread of hate that springs up like a prolific weed from the bloody soil of our planet. However, surely we can elect officials who will stop interfering in the affairs of others as if we were omniscient. We are not. In fact, we are often quite ignorant and belligerently so. If you wish to call the libertarian and classic American position isolationism, so be it. Perhaps it would be a welcome respite from nosy interference in the affairs of others.
