Cutting out the slur at the end, can you please explain how this is different than what we do.
Sergianist Churches: Orthodox Church of Japan is the autonomous Church under the MP. The Patriarch of Moscow approves the election of the CoJ Primate and the MP and CoJ are in communion.
Milan Churches: American Milan Diocese is the autonomous Church under the European Milan Church. They are in schism.
Really no difference?
Yes, really. Thank you for dividing it between (S) Sergianist and (M) Milan Churches. We can now put it into a clearer form. Let us label daughter Churches with a number.
Milan Churches, like Sergianist Churches, followed exact same structural division.
S (S1, S2, S3, S4, S5, S6) would, for example, describe the MP-CoJ relationship, and other such relationships. Let's make Moldova S6 for example.
M (M1) would then describe our relationship, whereas a sister Church relationship would be M-G-B-R, for example.
In April it was announced that M wished to become (S6 (S6.1)) and broke communion with anyone who opted not to recognize that action, meaning M recognized S (S1-6), which was never formally done by M (M1) before.
Now, some argue that the wording of the Tomos and M's subsequent actions created a M-G-B-R-A relationship, in which case M1=A. I don't follow that line, per se, because leaving aside the question of the nature of the pre-schism autonomy in the West, I think convention needs to be followed.
Thus, M1 is now morally obligated, before or upon the death of the Metropolitan, to either help restore M, declare their understanding to be A (which I would be hesitant to see happen, because I don't think there's a very good support for that position) or have G-B-R determine their status. I personally think the most logical conclusion is restoring M.
Now this is all confusing because internally M is giving mixed messages. If M is really going to become S6.1, then we have an issue. If not, this breach will be restored once the M's internal agitators complete their work and leave. That would leave M and S6.1, in which case it obviously would be worth supporting M on our part, restoring M (M.1) to their original status.
