[And how is using the name [Insert Nationality] Greek Catholic Church fictitious or identifying themselves as something they are not.]
I just love it when you, as well as others of your back ground, come in here and play the innocent and naive card! Woud you like to make a bet that the new name will neither have a nationality nor the words 'Greek Catholic' in its new title? If the Patriarchate goes through, it will simply be known as the Kievan Patriarchate. The purpose is to prey on the the fierce nationalism, politics, and ethnic hatred the current UGCC as well as the non-canonical Orthodox churches are based on. But, of course you are already well aware of all this.
[This has nothing to do with what we are talking about. Besides it was the Italian Culture Ministry that halted construction because they didn't want the Roman skyline changed.]
It most certainly does something to do with what we are talking about since I am replying to your comments regarding the RCC not batting an eyelash if the Orthodox were to set up an Orthodox Patriarch as the head of a Roman Catholic lookalike church in Rome. If they complain so much about an Orthodox Church being built, one can just imagine what they would say about a imitation RCC under Orthodox authority! It was not only the Italian Culture Ministry (reacting from Vatican pressure) that tried to halt the construction, but the Pope of Rome himself who offered the RO a RC church instead. And, by the way, the construction was not stopped since it is being built on foreign territory (Russian embassy grounds) where neither the Vatican or the Italian Cultural Ministry have jurisdiction over.
[The Sui Iuris Churches of the Catholic Church will interpret their relationship between each other and the Pope, not Orthodoc. ]
Now if you keep saying that YOU MAY BEGIN TO BELIEVE IT! When did the sui juris churches receive more authority than the Pope on any matter? Would you like me to start quoting the canons of the Eastern Christians in union with Rome to prove you wrong?
[Explain how raising the status of the UGCC from major archepiscopate to patriarchate changes anything in regards to the UOC. ]
I would suggest you reread the replies from ALL the automonous and autocephallous Orthodox Churches once again. They explain it all quite well. That why I referenced it in the first place.
[If they do or don't how does being called a patriarchate affect it? ]
I think I already answered that in my initial response. Again, reread what I wrote. You do have a tendency to go around in circles.
