Perhaps if your Patriarch simply showed as much charity, respect and humility to his equals WITHIN the Church as he does towards his pals in Rome OUTSIDE the Church he would not even need to raise this subject.
Brothers do tend to fight more ferociously with one another than with outsiders. While it's not an excuse, it certainly does pertain to this situation. And while they do tend to fight more, they are the only ones who sit together for dinner and say their evening prayers together.
I myself find it bizarre that so far in this thread it is only those looking to the EP for leadership that are amazed to find others not under his dubious guidance are not nearly as enamoured of him as they themselves are.
I don't know about "enamored," but whether "enamored" or not it's one thing to be critical, and another thing to wish ill. Unfortunately it seems that people are more willing to do the latter to the EP, rather than the former.
I continue to repeat my objection that I've raised in other places, too - this time, in reference to "not under his dubious guidance." You impugn too much power upon the Patriarch and ascribe too much influence. On the big decisions, he actually does have to get an entire synod of people who, contrary to popular opinion, don't agree with him at all times (I know people who work/worked at the Patriarchate who've told me stories of this); and he doesn't make any of the day-to-day decisions that affect life here in the jurisdictions connected to his see. If you want to object to how things are run over here, it would be more appropriate to direct your comments to those leading here (bishops, clergy, lay leaders, etc.), rather than to the EP.
On an individual level, it is a bit troubling just to see vitriol directed at anyone - Orthodox or not, Patriarch or not. It seems that we tend to feed into the "mob mentality" at times, whether it be anti-Catholic, anti-EP, anti-Old Calendar, anti-New Calendar, etc. From what I've seen on the forum over the last 3-5 days, it's as if the Purple Demons of lent have forgotten what month it is, and have decided to tempt us all to become more angry and hateful than we really are. I pray this is the case, and we all haven't just become more irritable.
