We do have people think, "They're not our ethnicity" or "They don't give to our tithe, why should I help?"
...

Which is that mysterious (non)jurisdiction in Orthodox Church with such believers?

Please don't assume it doesn't exist merely because you haven't seen it. That would be illogical.

I don't assume it. I'm asking you. I'm challenging you to reveal that "ethnic group".

Because, you know, we know each other for 'bout 11 centuries (when we newcomers came), I know there is no such ethnicity among us.

So, reveal your secret nonjurisdictional ethnic jurisdiction.

For example, it's a known fact that certain parishes in this country deny priests merely for not being their ethnicity. You should know about these things. Jurisdictionalism is sin.

Um.... OK....
So now we have an anonymous Pope online who thinks he can tell us what is and isn't a sin. Gee, that's much better than "Juristictionalism". Cheesy

Don't switch the subject. You claimed:

...
We do have people think, "They're not our ethnicity" or "They don't give to our tithe, why should I help?"
...

I claim there is no such an ethnicity among us and I'm challenging you to reveal which one is it.

In the end, though, it doesn't matter one iota what you or anyone here wants personally.  The status quo of several Orthodox bishops in one city is NOT the norm specified in the canons, which makes our current situation a canonical crime indeed.  This must be remedied!

However, the required process of administrative unification will take a long time to complete, since there are so many complicated issues that must be discussed by the hierarchs of our various jurisdictions.  We may not see the final result in our lifetimes, so patience and perseverance in the face of seeming lack of progress and frequent setbacks is absolutely necessary.

I'm not telling you anything that you won't find out from being Orthodox long enough. I've been Orthodox longer than most who try to tell me what Orthodoxy is.

If you'd like to learn of some solutions to jurisdictionalism, I recommend this article:

AFAIK, I've heard the consent was already reached in SCOBA to cease appointing the successors of reposed bishops with the city in the same town where another bishop does have the seat.

Gentlemen agreement was violated by EP (I can't remember the city).

What you said is a lie.

There is no such ethnicity among Orthodox who'd say "I won't help them while they are in trouble because they aren't of mine ethnicity".

There is no such one among us.

Americans are not ethnicity, except the native ones, so what you say is simply impossible.

You are troll.

Please stop making false statements. You obviously don't know what you are talking about. From the beginning of Orthodoxy in this country, to the present, sins have been committed between Orthodox Christians merely for belonging to different ethnicities. Your ignorance is not my problem.

You are free to leave at any time.

You do realize, though, that it doesn't matter how thoroughly and logically you defend your points?  If you do so in a constantly emotional (e.g., angry, defensive, or panicked) tone, no amount of logic will overcome the perception that you're being irrational.

Listen, lady.

I'm not making false statements. I'm just challenging you to point to the ethnicity of Orthodox Christians not wanting to help someone for just not being of their own ethnicity.

I say there are no such ones among us.

And we know each other for about 12 centuries, when we newcommers came. Well, that's not quite accurate, I disregarded Aleuts, Tlingit and other American natives, they came after us. But I bet they are the same.

So, speak up, reveal which ethnicity rejected to help some among the brethren for they were of different ethnicity.

... From the beginning of Orthodoxy in this country, to the present, sins have been committed between Orthodox Christians merely for belonging to different ethnicities.

From the beggining of Christianty sins have been committed for various reasons. And there are no other ones but sinners among us Orthodox.

But reveal us where, an entire ethnic parish, or an entire diocese, not to mention an autocephalia, refused to help someone for not being of their own ethnicity.

Do tell us, before you stop wasting your time here.

Since the Greek Orthodox Church is the oldest within the continental United States (Alaska was not a state), and since it is the largest jurisdiction, and since it is under the authority of the Ecumenical Patriarch, and since nations do not traditionally have their own national jurisdictions unless their people are Orthodox, the best solution for unity would be if all jurisdictions were to unite under the Greek Orthodox Church.

Sorry, Russian Jurisdiction is well established at this point.

The Russians in the United States can maintain their traditions while being under the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese in America. Otherwise, the Greeks can be under the Russian Patriarch. I don't really care. We just need to end this division among jurisdictional lines. We also need to end this OCA autocephaly nonsense.

Since the Greek Orthodox Church is the oldest within the continental United States (Alaska was not a state), and since it is the largest jurisdiction, and since it is under the authority of the Ecumenical Patriarch, and since nations do not traditionally have their own national jurisdictions unless their people are Orthodox, the best solution for unity would be if all jurisdictions were to unite under the Greek Orthodox Church.

Sorry, Russian Jurisdiction is well established at this point.

The Russians in the United States can maintain their traditions while being under the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese in America. Otherwise, the Greeks can be under the Russian Patriarch. I don't really care. We just need to end this division among jurisdictional lines. We also need to end this OCA autocephaly nonsense.
What nonsense?
Trying to prove a point again?  By quoting a reply posted several months ago from a poster who is now banned?
That's not what the profile says.

I came across this in response to this thread (where I commented on this post, as the Chief Secretary displays the same "thought")
A poster after the Chief Secretary's own heart.  What "autocephaly" nonsense is unspecified, just derived.  The same making diaspora of the natives ("AK not a state": neither was FL or LA).  The reason why we need to bring history in, to clue people in.
trying to find out about what was posted about the Romanians, which was referred to in that thread.

Has something changed in the last several months?  How about last month, since the Chief Secretary expounded these "thoughts" to a captive (?) audience at Holy Cross seminary?  The official line?

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Yeah, I just noticed that. Wink

You do notice that the post you quoted says nothing about Romania?

I think you need to go back to the "Challenges of Orthodoxy" thread to find that out. Wink
