The Ukrainian Church: A Multigenerational Divorce

. . .observers strain Google’s capacity to lead us to the truth by searching for quick, neat profiles on all of the leaders & land on any number of websites claiming to possess the absolute truth.  We might find what we want to find: another layer of incriminating evidence exposing the faults of Metropolitan Filaret, a photo of a grotesque icon demeaning Russia (or Ukraine), a headline announcing the seizure of a church, & through it all, we select the sources that support a viewpoint we have chosen to adopt. . .
