Pretty interesting interview. Especially when H.B. talks about bishops being prodded into doing stuff. Thoughts?
Through 10:00 until 12:00 my personal beliefs is he is speaking in hypocrisy. "prod bishops" to basically come together (with him as the metropolitan of course)...
There are many bishops who don't want to be part of that or ecumenism.
Without trying to sound too ugly, the OCA did have relations with http://news-nftu.blogspot.com/2009/06/oca-to-end-relations-with-tec-forge.html
until it broke off in June of 09.
I mean, Orthodoxy is supposed to move slowly. I can imagine any non-ecumenism bishop NOT approving of the OCA of having any relation at all with churches approving of gay & female clergy. Though I'm glad the OCA did break relations, I don't think many non-ecumenism bishops to be jumping up and down ready to jump on board.
When did praying to god become so complicated, jurisdictional, and messy? I'm glad we didn't start this stuff my brothers and sisters.
