I thought this was an explicitly un-Orthodox idea and that is why the Eastern Orthodox Churches reject the idea of Original Sin.

I'm talking about the fourth crusade.

I am going to ask a question and I know in print that it will appear sarcastic. However, that is not what I mean by it. I am not being sarcastic. I serioiusly want to know if you are being serious or if you are teasing me. So, are you serious?

Serious.

Well, I must say that I disagree with the actions of His Holiness Pope John Paul II of blessed memory, on this matter because he is not capable of apologizing for something he did not do, nor was done under his authority. Furthermore, he cannot know if the Catholics who sacked constantinople were repentant or not. I hope to God that they were. Rather, I think that His Holiness should simply point out that he condemns the actions taken by those Catholics who did sack constantinople and that such actions are contrary to the Catholic Faith.

Well, at the least, you are honest. Your new pope wants the Church to come together as It was in the first 1000 years (we'd prefer the first 800 - 900), but folks like both you and I will be impediments.
'Corporate' admissions of past sins do matter. In my lifetime I have seen "Germany" finally come to grips (if nothing else admitting culpability) with its dismal past in the last century and the Turks NOT doing the same. Japan is finally facing its past and the USA its era of racism.
When our Coptic friends decry the treatment of 'them' in the 5th/6th century by the empire and the Church I do not deny the wrongdoing (but do not apologize because they usually lump an admission that they were/are not theologically justified into said requested apology - something I'm not prepared to do). But I do not bring up the counter persecutions of the Romans they supported after the Muslim arrival, as a defense either or say "I wasn't there" or, as I get often "Get over it".

sdcheung is correct - never.

You know that I think it goes both ways. I am afraid to get into this because I bet tempers will flair, but I have been told that there are Catholic Churches in the former Soviet Union that were taken away from Catholics during communist rule and given to the Russian Orthodox Chruch. Many have still not been returned. There is plenty of blame to go around on both sides. However, is that what we should focus on, or rather should we be trying to fix the schism?

My friend, the Eastern Orthodox Church is one Church. The Catholic Church another. Since only one of the two can be the Church established by Jesus, that Church has the responsibility to evangelize the other out of love. Because you believe the Eastern Orthodox Church to be the Church, I would expect that you believe that the Eastern Orthodox should spread their faith around the world, even where there are already Catholic Churches. Since I believe that the Catholic Church is the the true Church, I believe that Catholics should spread their faith around the world, even where there are already Eastern Orthodox Churches. Thus, just as you must evangelize, so must we, and  we must do so everywhere, even in Russia. Just as you believe that you have the fulness of the faith, so do we. Thus, Russia is not out the question for the establishment of Catholic Churches. BTW, have you seen pictures of the Eastern Orthodox Church (is it a Cathedral?) being built in ROME (another shepherds work)? Grin It is an absolutely beautiful temple.

We have the East, lets leave it at that. Btw our Churches in the west were for the Diaspora, but through the providence of God, we gained Converts from protestantism and Papal "Catholicism".

And we could say that by the grace of God we have gained converts from Eastern Orthodoxy, but I do not believe that that is a respectful way to deal with Eastern Orthodox Christians who I believe to be my brothers and sisters in Christ. We can disagree respectfuly my friend. I will never put quotation marks around Orthodoxy when discussing your Churches because I have enough respect to call your church by its name, enough if I disagree with some of the teachings of your Church. Remeber, you attract more flies with honey than vinegar.

OUCH! But I can appreciate that. We do not view the Orthodox Church as the True Church. So I can totally understand where you are coming from. Furthermore, we Catholics do not view protestant denominations as churches. At best, the more liturgical bodies are known to us as ecclesial bodies, but not Churches, per se.

I agree with you Papist: you can try to convert whomever you want and we will do the same.  I have no fear that Orthodoxy will win out since it's the True Church Smiley

Since the Catholic Church has repeatedly stated "two lungs" notions, its praise of the Orthodox Church at the same time as evangelizing its members reveals hypocrisy.

I realize we're joking around so no you will not be moderated.  In fact, I will add to the joke.  They are not Romans either, but rather Franco-Latins.  So really we should be talking about the Franco Latin Religious Organization Wink

I dunno. With the American Church thinking its the center Universe, maybe it should be  the North American-Franco-Latin Religious Organization. "The test of a good religion is whether or not you can make a joke about it." (to paraphrase G.K. Chesteron)

Since the Catholic Church has repeatedly stated "two lungs" notions, its praise of the Orthodox Church at the same time as evangelizing its members reveals hypocrisy.
I totally agree with you. For Church prelates to even be discussing a "two lung" theory when they know that such flies in the face of Catholic teaching is completely unacceptable.

Sounds like a deal. But it doesn't seem fair that we get stuck with the Cahrismatics. LOL>  Wink

The wrong side always gets the short end of the stick.  You want to be on the winning side, find your nearest Orthodox recruiter priest and sign up.

Papist,

Since you are obviously a Traditionalist Catholic, you may in fact appreciate SOME aspects of some of these videos:

http://www.synodinresistance.org/EkdoshsParag_en/binteosiraAen.asp.html

They are aimed against Orthodox ecumenists to try and sway Orthodox away from ecumenism, by showing a lot of the ecumenist stuff Catholics do that Orthodox join in on.  Since we both find ecumenism wrong, we can both cringe at some of the footage.  You may find a few titles interesting, of course, from a different point of view and reaching different conclusions, especially this one:

<My understanding is that this 'two lungs" thing is referring to the RCC and the Eastern Catholics. Anyway, most Orthodox Churches do not adhere to this opinion.

No, it's clear from their printed statements that they mean the east in general, both Catholics and Orthodox.

If it only included Eastern Catholics, then I would have had no problem with the statement. However, that does not mean that I don't still love you guys. How about a hug? LOL
