^^Guys, again, I am not criticizing Yulia Volodymyrivna Tymoshenko; I am, rather, concerned about the reaction to my own and to some other people's comments (particularly on the Maidan web site) that the Orthodox Church does not encourage syncretism or universalism. Maybe I am not conveying it, but the reaction is fierceful. It's generally like, "you, fanatics, mediaeval types, who do you think you are? How dare you say that you are "the only One Church?" There is plenty of different churches out there, and besides, there are Muslim mosques, and Buddhist pagodas and what not. And God is one, how come you, dumb ones, fail to understand it? So, it does not matter, where you pray and to whom you pray (or how you call this God, or how you envision Him/him/her/"it"). It's all the same. If a human being is anywhere near decent, he or she should understand it." I just thought there could be some good arguments to defend the Orthodox Church, to explain to these people that when the Church sets certain requirements, it does not necessarily mean that She is "reactionary" or "mediaeval..."
