Are you familiar with a wonderful new concept called "humor"?
Make it rhyme next time, yo.

Oh I heard a rumor
that a baby boomer
had no sense of humor
but that couldn't be true-mer ...

I remember hearing a Jew saying that Jews never use the term "Judeo-Christian".  I have heard Christians use it, though.

Still, we do derive much of our validity from Jewish tradition.  I think that the problem comes in when we consider the Jews of today to be the same thing of the Jews from back in the day.

EDIT: Forgive me, I didn't realize that there was more than one page of responses.  I only read the first page.

I searched the web and found this:

Quote
Great turmoil was created when [Patriarch] Dimitrios announced that by extreme economy and unconditionally, in case of the dying, Holy Communion could be received from a Roman Catholic priest (see Macedonia, No. 7/8, 1987).
http://orthodoxinfo.com/ecumenism/quovadis.aspx

However, I was actually referring to the 1975 Thyateira Confession.

It states:
Quote
“When they are not near a Roman Catholic Church, Roman Catholics are permitted to receive the Holy Communion in Orthodox Churches; and the same is also extended to Orthodox when they are not near an Orthodox Church.”

This is quoted in the commentary about it, from which another quote is below:
Quote
The Thyateira Confession , by Archbishop Athenagoras (Kokkinakis) of Thyateira and Great Britain, was printed “With the Blessing and Authorization of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople” in 1975.
http://www.trueorthodoxy.org/heretics_world_orthodoxy_demetrios.shtml

So you were lying about Patriarch Bartholomew? Right.

And I'd like to see some more reliable sources than true-hyperdox-old-calendar websites.

I referred to something that I researched three years ago and posted on then. Three years later I tell you Pat. Bartholomew favored communion when there is no such church nearby, and you say I am lying when it turns out it was Pat. Athenagoras?

The Thyateira Confession says Orthodox can commune in Catholic churches if there is no Orthodox church near them and vice verse. However, this is not the same as Open Communion.

Shocked  

Should people who claim to be Christians automatically put the worst possible interpretation (that of committing a serious breach of one of the Commandments) on the actions of their fellow Christians?

I ask only for information.   police

Indeed. And spread false accusations.

So three years ago I read this on the "True Orthodoxy" website, posted about it on OC.net, and now three years later I remember it online, but get the name of the specific Patriarch wrong...
