An interesting and illuminating article by Archbishop Stylianos Harkianakis of Australia on the difficulties of the Catholic-Orthodox bilateral dialogue,

Papism: The Insurmountable Obstacle of Christian Unity


http://www.johnsanidopoulos.com/2010/02/papism-insurmountable-obstacle-of.html

Part I

1. Introductory Remarks

Following the totally unexpected escalation in provocations from the
Vatican, under BENEDICT XVI, towards other Christians (especially the
Orthodox, as we shall see below!), it is as plain as the sun that we are
unfortunately entering a period of complete uncertainty, to mention nothing
of strange 'obscurity'.

Papism: The Insurmountable Obstacle of Christian Unity

Part 2

Following the mystagogical vision of the "primordial Mystery of the Church",
as described with astonishing theological consistency in the 34th Apostolic
Canon, it would be a terribly backward step and vain endeavour to comment
here on the 'pseudo-Clementine' and 'pseudo-Isidorian' textual claims
concerning primacy, which have long ago been refuted by objective historians
and theologians.

At present, seeing the conditions, any unification would be disasterous for the Holy Orthodox Church.  There are too many roadblocks, and too many innovatons to overcome.  No, it would not be in the best interestes of our OC to even enter unification talks.   Nothing will change for the better.  Compromising our faith is not an option.  And accepting parallel beliefs is like building a house on sand.
