And judging by your signature, to you, that would merely be a case of the pot calling the kettle black.
Sure. But I think it is relevant that the Patriarch's perspective not be distorted. Taking his friendliness as an indication that he recognizes your ordinances as legitimate Sacraments is not a logical way of thinking.
There is quite a bit to criticize in our communion. Please criticize. I want those things fixed so much more than you.
I am sure you do. But I wouldn't be surprised if you underestimate how much I care about your church. Most people seem to.
But coming from you, deusveritasest, it just sounds obnoxious, especially with the attitude you display in your signature.
Obnoxious? Why is it obnoxious for me to clarify the Patriarch's opinion and not allow it to be confused by typical ecumenist, wishful white-washing?
