Eastern churches
From RISU

What’s wrong with this picture?
RISU are sometimes unfair to the Orthodox by not pointing out that fellows like this aren’t... essentially a foreigner and a vagante is trying to tell the Ukraine what to do. He’s with the American branch of one of the smaller nationalist schisms there.

The Orthodox in those parts are the Russian Orthodox Church’s Ukrainian metropolia in Kiev (in Ukrainian).

OK, literally he doesn’t look Eastern, which is a hint. But to be fair there are real Orthodox like the Antiochians who look like that too.

Googling this fellow’s name things get curiouser: he was an unofficial observer at and apparent defender of Gene Robinson’s consecration. I remember blogging about this at the time, back in November 2003. So much for his cred.
