Though many resisted name hijacking, the false identity transformation was gradually adopted until it passed a tipping-point by W. II, probably because: Let's heal the fear, lies, and shame. The false label confuses histories of diverse faiths which are not Molokan, and should not be used except for actual Molokane.

——————————————————————————— Who are Spiritual Christian Dairy-eaters? Members of this organization are officially internationally recognized as "Molokans." Descendants of real Molokane, especially those who have not joined another faith and remain close to practicing relatives, also use the term.

That's so much easier than remembering Vassili Ivanovich, Mikhail Kondratich, Parasha Petrovna, ... Imagine a dude who doesn't know many words and always calls a #2 Phillips screwdriver "hammer," a shop broom "hammer," or a 15" pipe-wrench "hammer"? Every tool with a handle he calls "hammer." Would you get the tools yourself, or teach him a few new words? "Don't rock the boat." To me, this is like Socrates "for clarity" would continue to say the earth is flat, because most uneducated people still think that way, and he did not want to upset or confuse them.

Imagine that your spiritual friends hear that "yellow-tail tuna are running at Long Beach." They chartered a boat and invited you. The boat captain stops at a school of barracuda claiming they are tuna. "They swim, have a head and tail." Would you complain? It is a monument to their stupidity, like people who continue to say that Aboriginal Indigenous Peoples, Native North Americans, Tribes, First Nations, etc. Not knowing the right words is silly, like calling all animals with 4 feet and a tail "cats" because you don't know the other names (dog, horse, mouse, sheep, wolf, etc.); or, a dude not knowing the names of their tools, calling everything "hammer" because it has a stick handle.

A simple historical classification system (below) accurately defines confused sub-groups of non-dukhobor Spiritual Christians, who, a century ago were told by Demens and Young and Samarin in Los Angeles that they should all falsely claim to be "Molokans" in America no matter what or who they were in Russia, or became in America.

Definitions vary over time, place, and user (when, where, what/who).

Please properly use these 3 transliterated Russian terms in honest respect, to set the record straight.

Other Spiritual Christian (non-Orthodox, folk Protestant, sectarian) groups with origins in Old Russia that resettled in North America (Adventisty, Baptisti, Dukhobortsy,** Evangeliki, Pyatidesyatniki, Shalaputi, Subbotniki, Svobodniki, etc.) are not the focus of this taxonomy, though they were all often called malakan, or Molokan in error.

Old Orthodox faiths (Old Ritualists, staroobryadtsy, Old Believers, staroverie) are raskolniki, not Spiritual Christians, and often confused with malakan.

Molokane today have a central hierarchy (a bureaucracy), published contacts and content on the Internet, meetings, conventions, buildings, interfaith representation, and a long a history of publications in Russia.

They are Bible-centered Christians in Russia, not Orthodox.

Sadece 4 peygamberler kitapta yayınlandı, Kniga solnste dukh i zhizn' (Güneşin Kitabı, Ruh ve Hayat, 1928 kutsal kitabı). They intentionally mislabeled all Spiritual Christians from Russia in Southern California as "Molokans" for their own different altruistic reasons.
