"Itâs been going on an extensive activity and debate within the church.
The struggle is going on between the reactionaries and the democratic
minded people. The reactionaries want to lead the church back to the
darkness of the middle ages. The democratic minded people want a
democratic, open, tolerant church that cares about their members and
shows them humanity."
"The Patriarch ... follows those who are the strongest. Today it seems
that those who are close to the Syrian intelligence is allowed to
control and change in this vacant space."
"But the people in Europe, doesnât accept these ways of ruling and is
now questioning more than ever, this mainly because the church ought
to be more democratic."
