Brothers and Sisters,
I'd like to respond to the mischaracterization of those who stand up for Orthodox faith and practice as "extremists" who are seeking to "divide the Church", et cetera.
Across the web lately, anyone who has stood up to say that they are opposed to the use of Protestant songs and materials (like Rick Warren books, et cetera) in the life of our Orthodox Church has been attacked on the web as being an "extremist" bent on "dividing the Church". We are even compared to the "Muslim Brotherhood". This sort of unfair criticism has been leveled at youth and adult laymen who post on message boards like this one, all the way up to priests and bishops like Fr. Peter Farrington and Sayedna Anba Suriel.
It is totally disingenuous and false and I would like to respond to it here directly.
If someone introduces an innovation incompatible with Orthodoxy into the Church and the introduction causes division, it is those who have introduced it who have caused the division, not those who object to it.
Further, such talk will not silence those who see mega-church Protestantism for what it is and are opposed to the Protestantization of our Church.
