There is no basis nor reason to compare the Malankara Church to an ultra-liberal protestant denomination and a new age cult.

So your church isn't as faaabulous as them?
"The creed is very simple, and here is what it is: to believe that there is nothing more beautiful, more courageous, and more perfect than Christ; and there not only isn't, but I tell myself with a jealous love, there cannot be." ~ Fyodor Dostoevsky

Given that India is such a religiously diverse country, the Church learned to be open-minded while still holding fast to Orthodox tradition.

I think you are very naive. Or something.
