The Prajna of British Anicca

I went for the Encyclopedia Britannica's offer of free access to their online edition to web publishers (which includes frequent bloggers).

Which of them is a more worthy project, EB or WP?Collapse )

I scooped up what looked to be another leaflet in the occasional animosity between Lubavichers and Modern Orthodox here, and was going to post a copy but on further inspection it looks to be instead a leaflet by Messianics against Lubavich. It's still interesting, but not as much so... it'll just be another member of my collection of religious tracts..
