- Apr 4, 2002You seem to have missed my entire point, as my reply was somewhat
tongue in cheek. I was certainly not endorsing uniting with mootheistic
religions! To those who think the "allegation of uniting with

also announced the Orthodox belief in 'One, Holy, Catholic and
Apoistolic Church,' and stress that the Orthodox Churches who have
embraced ecumenism have pretty much ignored.
