Beyond that, the comments stand as written.
Lord, have mercy.
Even if the Catholic Church sees Orthodoxy as in some ways "defective" we do not exclude you from being part of the true Body of Christ, nor do we claim that you have denied Him.
And you still haven't told us which Catholic theologians and clergy have asserted that Catholics who have become Orthodox have denied Christ. Are you able to do so?
Interesting how you emphasize 'still' so much after one reply.
No, I don't have any quotes from Catholic theologians, although I am sure I could find some if I looked hard enough. But that is the impression I have been consistently given both during my time as a traditional Catholic and during my time as an inquirer into Orthodoxy.
At the very least, I can tell you that neither church officially accepts the Branch Theory which you seem to espouse.
Christ is Born!
What I seem to espouse is not precisely the Branch Theory as I understand it. And if what I believe, or at least fervently hope for, is in error in the eyes of my Church, then I will depend upon her to correct me. As far as I'm aware, I'm not denying any dogma or doctrine of the Church. Just to be sure, I'll take it up with my priest at the next opportunity
Be that as it may, I would just say that if you assert that Catholic theologians and clergy claim that those who translate from Catholicism to Orthodoxy have denied
Christ, you really should
be able to back it up with some references. That is, after all, a very serious accusation, don't you think? It's akin to accusing them, quite falsely, of becoming atheists or tree worshipers or idolators of "environmentalism", or cargo cultists.
