Yes, this happens all the time. Russia isn't like the west where supporting traditional marriage gets you fired and unpersoned.Could I do a standup routine in Russia where I'm critical of Putin and state security without being imprisoned and/disappeared?
America has been more of a police state for the past 22 years than Russia under Putin ever has been. Does Russia have one government agency pumping the streets with Crack and another imprisoning the addicts? Plus statistically by volume of value of theft the group of people most likely to rob me in America is police via civil asset forfeiture.
A couple things to consider:
1 you make a way out of left field claimAs opposed to the MP who has the unique privilege of needing permission from Putin while also appearing to be dictated by the FSB?
2 you admit you don't have any sources or evidence of any kind to support your claimwe both don't have sources available to prove either my claim for the MP or Michael's for GOARCH
3 wokism, which is heresy, you put on par with a state's sinful interference. Not only that, but as referred to earlier, putting the gravest error of schism on as being equal to state interference.The control by their secular government authorities over church affairs however are as bad as wokism in my eyes as a layman.
Two sides of the same coin at the end of the
Now, for 1 and 2, I also do have a habit of saying "out-there" claims like saying the Founding Fathers of the US were Satanists. I can't expect normies to accept this at face value unless they're Mexican. For American normies I usually start by asking why did Benjamin Franklin have children's bodies buried under his house, and what's that hellfire club he was a member of all about? Rinse and repeat for Jefferson, Adams, Paine etc.
3 is the bigger issue. Schism is treated by the early canons and Fathers as worse than heresy, and communing and concelebrating with Schismatics is as grave. It is good you found a solid Greek parish to make your home, throwing unfounded accusations at MP does you no good in defending your home parish. Don't be suprised by pushback especially from those of us who trained in political science, international relations or history, in particular AngloAmerican history.
God save you in finding a solid in-person priest.
