You want to be eastern be Orthodox, you want to be Latin be Catholic
This is why the WRO are misunderstood, because of ignorant statements like this.
Perhaps we're seeing here why e.g. there are no WRO in Greece.
Last time I checked, neither Antioch nor ROCOR have a jurisdictional presence on Greece.
I'm not sure if this was meant as a serious response or not, but you're right, neither Antioch nor ROCOR have a jurisdictional presence on Greece.
I won't speak for LBK, but I'm not sure if your questions/comments are serious to begin with.
Well, that's really a very broad-based attack, so I'm not really sure what to say in defense of myself or my participation on this forum. But regardless, it truly amazes me that the lack of Western-Rite Orthodox in Greece would be explained (if that is in fact what LBK meant) in terms of the Antiochians and ROCOR not being present there.
Why would you expect Western Rite Orthodox in a country which is predominantly Eastern Orthodox? It's like criticising the Vatican for not having a Syro-Malankara parish within its geographic bounds.
Um, sure, it's like criticising the Vatican for not having a Syro-Malankara parish within its geographic bounds.
Sorry couldn't resist. But unless I'm greatly misinformed, the number of Malankara Christians in Italy is, if not non-existent, certainly much smaller than the 100,000+ Western Catholics in Greece (assuming it matters whether your comparison makes sense or not
The western Catholics in Greece are there because of the way history has panned out there. Franks, Venetians, Crusaders, and even the British have held sway in Greek islands and regions at various times over the past thousand years.
