Orthodox and Catholics are just as human as anyone else. Yes, Christians should be seen as more loving, more compassionate than those who don't believe, but in my experience, that just isn't the case. I tell myself that it is due to the fact that they are Christians therefore it is more difficult, as the attacks of the devil are stronger. I think in Orthodoxy, the desire of its members to be polemical is much higher than it is in Roman Catholicism. Many Orthodox have the strong desire to define their Orthodoxy by what they don't believe relative to other denominations. It isn't a positive expression of the Faith. I think it is because of an immature grounding in the Faith. I also think it is a symptom of unbelief, as people can be so flippant and excited in expounding upon the Orthodox Church's exclusivity. If we truly love our neighbors and truly believe in the Church's exclusivity and all that entails, flippancy and sarcasm have absolutely no place in our lives. Our words have the potential to bring people closer to Christ or further away from him. Unfortunately, none of us realize this completely in our own lives. And so, we should first look inward at what we do daily that transgresses the commandment of love of God and neighbor, recognize the difficulty of it all, and excuse the failings of our brothers and sisters in Christ. It requires a great deal of humility, but I believe it is the only way to obtain the peace of God.
