I've decided to remove this page. My reasons are threefold:
- I don't have journalist blood in me.
I have a hard time, personally, maintaining a news page.
It's hard to get the inspiration to do so.
Many of the things that I would put on it are copyrighted
from various news service. I would have to summarize them,
or ask for permission (which usually takes a long time).
There is also the issue of bias. I'm trying to keep the Orthodox Page
as unbiased as possible, and when I include a "news" page, invariably
there are things that are included, and things that are not
(usually due to reason #1 above),
and that gives the illusion of bias.
Please forgive me, if you were relying on this page for news about
the Orthodox Church. There are other options (that generally cost money,
because they come from the wire services). A good one is
Also good is the clari.news.religion newsgroup (if it's available
at your site).
