My essay on caesaropapism will have to be pushed back to next week. The recent actions of the Pope, spiritual leader of the Roman Catholic Church, which run in parallel to the cultural crisis facing the Occidental world, as well as the carnage in Syria, compelled me to write this letter. It is generously hosted by The Orthosphere, whom I thank sincerely. Call it the lodging of protest, I’d prefer to say that it was a statement of clarity to a man who has very little if any. A letter is often better than word of mouth, as we can measure ourselves and choose our words carefully. I hope that God had His hand upon me when I wrote this, and that I have said all that needs to be said at this time.
“Brothers, if anyone is caught in any transgression, you who are spiritual should restore him in a spirit of gentleness.”
