Then why did you post your pot shot? You know the game. If you can't prove it, don't post it.
Didn't matter that the east had treated the west badly prior to those centuries...
None that you would recognize...
poor poor little eastern Orthodoxy.That was just plain rude.
I posted it because in fact there is a long history of promise and betrayal between us on both sides. That is why I posted it. If it were not common knowledge and was not expressed commonly in these sorts of fora, then I would not have said it. I cannot prove it in five lines or less. I am pretty sure you know that as well.
Also I would love to have a dime for each time I've heard an Orthodox person tell me that Orthodoxy is so small and weakened that we Roman Catholics would just crush her if we could. I suppose if anything, I was trading rude presumptions.
Orthodoxy is small. No one will ever convince me that she is weak.
Blessings of this Bright Week to all!!
