The title of the book even gave me a chuckle.

I think that would be great for millions of Orthodox Ukrainians!   :angel:

Right. When politicians intervene in Church in Moscow it's called symonia and corruption. When it's done in Ukraine it becames listening to the voice of people or what else. Every time I'm amazed how you can apply double standards so easily.

When it comes to church, people should just care about church. They should try to be a family across ethnic lines.

I think it's true that the leadership of the Jerusalem church is harmfully influenced by politics from the phanar, Turkey, and Israel. But is that enough to give them a duty to abandon their patriarchate and canons and go under Antioch?

The MP and the Phanar or JP are not stopping Ukrainians or Palestinians from having their own countries or electing their own national leaders.
Actually, they are.

Based on the vagueness of your answer, I can come up with a noncontroversial answer, but knowing  you, that is not what you are thinking.

So how did the Phanar stop Ukraine and Palestine from having their own country and  ditto the same goes for the MP. I am sure you are cued up for it.

Now my own question. When did the Patriarchate of Constantinople transfer its jurisdiction of the Byzantine province of Cherson (which lasted (about 900 years?) until the fall of Constantinople, which in and of itself should not make a difference in regard to jurisdiction?
1783.

Thanks, you are spot on. I shouldn't have started searching based on  my having to memorized the Charge of the Light Brigade.

I also learned about Elderism at the same time.

According to this article there is an Orthodox priest named "Johnson" who espouses openly racist sentiments and operates a podcast which is distributed by Stormfront. However the article doesn't go into more detail about him (it doesn't even mention his first name!), instead primarily focusing on Matthew Heimbach.

A few paragraphs down, it says the priest's name is Matthew Raphael Johnson.

I was talking to wgw about how atypical it seems to be that Brazil had at least two Syriac bishops without a drop of Arab (or Indian, duh) blood: Mor Basílio and Mor José Efrém (maybe our Mor Ephrem's Latino brother?). So out of mere curiosity: are there many cases of "non-ethnic" OO bishops that you guys know of?

The two (now one) bishops of French Orthodox Church are part of the Coptic synod and French. The bishop of the British Orthodox Church was a member of the Coptic synod while being English, until he left. Anba Macarius is a member of the Coptic synod and is Eritrean.

I wanted to be Orthodox. I followed the path that God opened up to me and am convinced that OO is the Orthodox Church, and that the EO is also the Orthodox Church. But I prefer the traditional OO language.
I love this response.  :)

  • Me: Father, I was thinking about printing an icon of a defunct Orthodox I deeply admire, but he wasn't glorified by the Church...
  • Priest: *sigh* Why don't you go and put a picture of Jimi Hendrix in your icon corner?
He didn't get I was talking about unglorified saints like Frs. Seraphim Rose or Cleopa Ilie, but it was a good one.
