  1. The words of this article are quite bias, disregarding the canonical authority and activity of the Ecumenical Patriarchate.

  2. How can this new Church be schismatic if it was created and recognized by the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople? All those protesting the new autocephalic Church are either allies or clients of the ROC/Moscow Patriarchate. For that matter: was it Christ-like and Christian that Moscow did nothing for years to solve the problem of the Church in Ukraine. And the reason they did nothing was because of politics – recognizing an independent Ukrainian Orthodox Church meant recognizing an independent Ukrainian state, nation, culture, language, etc. And where would that leave the Kremlin and its desire for world power?

  3. I am not fan of the EP either. But this website as I understand present itself as a pan-orthodox page even to the extent of including oriental church as “orthodox”. So, what happen? If calling this newly created, problematic group in ukraine as schismatic, why not call the orientals as also schismatics? Is the admin of this web paid by MP?
