If you can, please read the following website and prepare a reply.

Thank you.

I have a policy of not wasting my time debating anti-Catholics. This stuff is garbage: not worth anyone's time, in my opinion.

I am disappointed and do not understand. You "have a policy of not wasting my time debating anti-Catholics", but you have a whole section of your website doing so:

This even includes "Orthodox Anti-Catholicism" as well as such already discredited anti-Catholics as Jack Chick.

Yet, you will not respond to Alexei Osipov, a well known Russian Orthodox theologian, professor and lecturer from the Orthodox Theological Seminary in Moscow? Check the internet. He is a widely popular pedagogue, publicist and defender of Russian Orthodoxy and apologist of Eastern Christianity. Most of his publications never mention Catholicism.

I know that your time is valuable and that you must pick and choose whose writings you will answer. But, you've heard the old saying that an unanswered lie becomes the truth in 24 hrs. There are now other Orthodox websites attacking Catholic Marian apparitions (not necessary to our Faith) as unholy delusions.

With no Catholic replies, readers of these sites will think we have no response that can be made. But, that is your decision.

At least one Catholic apologist had the religious courage to attempt a response to this Orthodox slur. But, it still awaits a full rebuttal. Would that it were yours.,1_435290_AG1ck0UAAAgWTQEZFAsCfAWE2TQ,1_433182_AGlck0UAASIlTQEIOA4xghnEqaI,1_428585_AGFck0UAAAcwTQD%2FRAatgxbSND4,1_424265_AGVck0UAAH9zTQDTTw8WIh3lf7I,1_422012_AGVck0UAAN2rTQC%2FSACED2VfMnk,&sort=date&order=down&startMid=0&hash=bddbc285a4b0236cb2e6efcd30a6b0bd&.jsrand=6500554

Some things are beneath reply. This is not a matter of courage (I have 650 debates posted) but of stewardship of time under God.
