7549Esphigmenou monks extremists?
- Feb 1, 2003Christ is in our midst! Forgive me, fathers, but I guess I'll have to
confess to being an extremist. "We" in ROCOR, if it includes me (and a
significant number of others) do _not_ bestow the Church's blessing upon
unions between Orthodox Christians and heretics of any variety. Such unions
are quite explicitly and vehemently forbidden by the Church, frequent
"economies" in the present-day notwithstanding (see "Does the Orthodox
Church Permit Mixed Marriages", Living Orthodoxy, vol. XI #2, for pertinent
canonical and other citations).
