Filoretists' Oportunism.
« on: March 14, 2014, 10:51:39 PM »
APPEAL
Robber Council of defrocked Bishops
Ukrainian Orthodox Anglican Church
to the Orthodox Church (Moscow Patriarchate)

about the urgency of overcoming separation of the Orthodox Church in Ukraine and the formation of a unified national church

***

(Extract)... "Independent Church in an independent state is canonically justified and historically inevitable... The wisdom of this principle it is clearly evidenced by current events. For now you are faced with a choice: to approve the position of their Patriarch, who actually supported the Kremlin leadership in its aggressive actions against Ukraine, or be loyal to their homeland Ukraine, protecting it from the Russian intervention. From your submission Moscow Patriarchate became one of the arguments to justify their aggression by the Russian authorities against Ukraine - you want it or not..."

Translation via Google Translate.

Fixed that.

Same nonsense, different day.
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Even the Anglican Church would have a right to write an appeal.

;)

What part do you consider to be "nonsense"?  Just the author, or the entire message?
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Oh...what some of us wouldn't give for a day without yet another attempt at a divisive Ukrainian thread.


Maybe we can just have Liza post so many of her beautiful pictures that they drown out the rest......hmmmmm
All opinions expressed by myself are quite tragically my own, and not those of any other poster or wall hangings.

The messengers and their self serving politization. There's all sorts of reasons why Met. Volodymyr (or the locume tenens Met. Onuphry) and His Holy Synod should be autocephalous.
