Tragically the canons are too often viewed as cudgels for those who don't follow the part line follow the example of those who themselves have an amazing capacity to ignore those same canons in their own ministry.
No, much more 'canonical' Michal for them to run after those who indulge in inter-Faith activity, joint worship with the heterodox, agreements between 'Canonical' Orthodox and non-Chalcedonians, Patriarchs attending Chanukkah celebrations are serious breaches of the Canons, and would in a healthier Orthodox world would not be tolerated by people, the Holy Mountain or anyone whose faith was of one mind with that of the Ecumenical Councils and the witness of those like Saint Mark of Ephesus, who stood almost alone against the predecessors of today's 'canonical' Orthodox.
In referring to inter-Faith I have in mind I have in mind the totally unacceptable multi-faith gathering at Assisi and another in Kazakhstan attended by representatives of the Moscow Patriarchia.
Healthy bodies have anti-bodies, as did the Greek and Russian Churches of St Mark's time. What he and the Church Fathers would have made of that abomination, the so-called World Council of Churches and the smaller National Councils of Churches, does not need a Divinity degree or a diagram. And a less informed understanding of canonicity might be corrected by reading a lengthy essay on the subject by the late Father John Meyendorff. (Available on the Orthodox Christian Information Centre website).
It is easy to scoff at the witness of some, but the irony is that all too often those who parade their 'canonical' status which on examination turns out to mean yoking the righteous with unrighteousness. By their fruit you shall know them, and Orthodox involvement in the WCC has not produced any of the fruit spoken of by the Orthodox apologists for the membership of local churches in this misnamed organisation.
If being in communion with the EP is essential in order to be Orthodox then Saint Mark had separated himself from the Church(!) But, of course, today we all better informed and more deeply knowledgeable than the Church Fathers, who after all had all sorts of hang ups, misunderstandings and inadequacies. Sadly no, this is not the case - we are not worthy to undo the bootstraps of those courageous witnesses that went before us.
