That tremor felt throughout the universe was me agreeing with Orthonorm.
I'm learning to get past this Eastern Orthodox idea that we must all believe the same things in every detail or else...
An idea that seems incredibly unOrthodox.
I wouldn't say that we have to agree in every detail. We don't all agree on toll houses, extent of relations with other religious traditions, 6 day creationism, etc. We aren't the Borg. The Church Fathers certainly don't universally agree on everything. That is not to say that we can diverge off from what the Church teaches, but there are some grey areas that have not been dogmatized.
Exactly, the idea that there are no disagreements in the Eastern Orthodox church is silly. It's one thing I realized the more I explored Orthodoxy, there are real differences over issues like ecumenism and engagement with the modern world. They simply aren't as prominent as in Protestantism.
In Anglicanism what is and is not dogma is ultimately found in the Creeds and the Bible, the Church is to teach, administer sacraments and make disciples, but can't bind souls to doctrines not found in the Scriptures or reasonably deduced from them. Those things are adiaphora, at liberty to be disputed. In practice it isn't that different from the Eastern Orthodox Church, which refuses to dogmatize things such as the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary, the Dormition of the Mother of God, and so on. What's different for Orthodoxy from Anglicanism? In my estimation because most Orthodox have lived under authoritarian, traditionalist societies where questioning anything was heavily discouraged. In American society individualism is encouraged: perhaps to a fault. But its not right to pretend that one cannot disagree with other believers about secondary matters and still be orthodox.
I don't recall Henry VIII tolerating a lot of questioning.
When it comes to dogma and Creeds, no, the Orthodox do not disagree. That's why we have dogma and Creeds.
We don't dogmatize the IC because we don't believe it. Or rather, because it never happened.
The Dormition isn't dogmatized, but try to find an Orthodox who doesn't believe in it.
And many of those "authoritarian, traditionalist societies where questioning anything was heavily discouraged" in which many Orthodox lived were not Orthodox societies (the Caliphate, Turkocratia, Polish Commonwealth, etc.), in which they had to have a good reason to go against the grain. Especially when it often was a matter of life or death. Doesn't leave much for the luxury of speculation.
In Anglicanism, what isn't a "secondary matter"?
