      Так откуда, собственно говоря, "родом" этот теперешний МП? А из этих самых "обновленцев"-сергианцев!!! Т. е. в 1943 г. - по приказу тов. Сталина и при участии ведомства тов. Берии

      К сожалению, все правильно написано, не приврал ни слова. Жутчайшее и грубейшее вмешательство государства в церковные дела. Аналог СССР 20х годов 20 века, когда большевики поддерживали и навязывали
