In our Take Action section, you were challenged to use this website to bring the issue of abuse into the light. Often times, you may hear people say that 'Abuse is unknown in the Orthodox Church!' or 'We may have problems, but we never move abusers around the way that the Catholics do.' This section provides the materials that can be used to teach the Orthodox both that abuse occurs, and that we have no right to point any fingers at our Roman brethren. In addition, we provide references to other groups that are working to help restore accountability in the Church. Finally, we provide information about what the different jurisdictions are doing to alleviate abuse and minister to victims, and who to contact if you want to see more done.

Very seldom have I brought attention to the issue of sexual abuse and the Catholic Church. However I am not oblivious either to the scale of the sexual abuse and the cover up that continues in the Catholic Church. Deflect attention as you must onto the Orthodox or whomever.If this is your means of solution to a problem that your church has that is universally recognized as large scale- more so the cover up and the continuing thriving of those that covered up-then fine. We will follow this abuse into the next 20 years as well. As for the Orthodox, as someone who as spent his life preventing and protecting sex abuse victims I have no need to deny, minimize, or deflect. If one child is abused it is a travesty.I am not looking at other churches to defend my own.
Lets stop the roundy rounders and all admit the Catholic Church has yest to settle this and , not condemn but help the Church to reconcile this. Giod Bless your new Pope. May God Through this fine man bring a conclusion to this.

Whether we use "dormition" or "assumption," the fundamental belief remains the same. The Catechism, quoting the Byzantine Liturgy, states, "The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin is a singular participation in her Son's resurrection and an anticipation of the resurrection of other Christians:'In giving birth you kept your virginity; in your Dormition you did not leave the world, O Mother of God, but were joined to the source of Life. You conceived the living God and, by your prayers, will deliver our souls from death'" (No. 966).
I am awed by your gift of finding one sentence ad by it grasping our theology of the Theotokos.ou are amazing because t has taken me years o study to get where you got in couple minutes. I hereby issue you your Paltalk Orthodox Theology degree.

Tell me were are the bones of Mary what is your answer to "scripture alone and faith alone" which the Catholic church has stood alone in battaling.The Othodox are fossalized and you are in denial if you say there is no coflict between your Churches.The Othodox Church has slipped into herisy many times and turned to Rome to reistate its bishops and to mediate disputes.Each Church has to claim it is the only true Church and/or its interpretation of the bible is the only true one.Usually at the expense of the Catholic Church. StIrenaeus says "with that Church(Rome) all churche must agree" it is the Catholic Church that has maintained authority.I believe the Caholic and Othordox are ment to be togther and the statements now being developed, made by both our Bishops, are the rightful authorities to make official desisions. That inclueds the statements I have made, I can mud sling with the best of them but that is pride and sinful. I love my Othodox Brothers and sisters and pray for unity , we are togethr the true church and our elders will work it out in love and respect.
I am pleased that you love our "fossilized church." By all means keep modernizing, innovating, and adding to the original faith.

I find it fascinating that, in my judgment, it is more of the Catholics than the Protestants that show fangs to the Orthodox Church. Please know that I don't care about being Number 1,the First Church, the only True Church. I only care that Christ, the Ruler of the World and the Heavens suffered on that Cross for me and you, which leaves us all with no bragging rights.

That's the History Channel version, but the facts do not support this. It was the Catholic Centre Party who put the Nazi Party in power, at the direction of the Vatican's prelates.
The Nazis were founded by the Vatican's Teutonic Knights. These are occultists like the Templars.
Priests were found running concentration camps and mass-murdering the Serbs in Yugoslavia, force converting over 250,000.
The first act of war by the Catholic Nazis was against the Protestants of Prussia:

Another Knight of Christ (Templar), the king of Spain had this to say about Adolf:
"Adolf Hitler, son of the Catholic Church, died while defending Christianity. It is therefore understandable that words cannot be found to lament over his death, when so many were found to exalt his life. Over his mortal remains stands his victorious moral figure. With the palm of the martyr, God gives Hitler the laurels of Victory".-Spanish dictator (Francisco Franco, Knight of the Order of Christ) published on the 3rd of May 1945, the day of Hitler's death.("Reforme", 21st of July 1945.)

The Knights of Columbus and others today continue to run the US Gov waging war around the world for their bloody pope in Rome. The Jesuit professor Leon Panetta runs the Pentagon!
The Vatican is more violent that the Muslims. We need neither of these two most violent religions. Rome actually created Islam in the 7th century for this very global jihad/crusade. Rome does not spread Christianity.
The US dollar says "In God We Trust" put there by the KoC rightfully it reads in the pope we trust as they wage crusades around the world, and at home in total control of the Dept Homeland Security.

NO! Does it have all the tresures that the catholic church has? NO! If the catholic church wants to regain credibility it shand try return all its plunders and try being more humble.
What studies are you using to conferm there are more catholic preist sexual abusers than the Othodox ? I can garintee it is compairible and it should be noted there are married men who abuse there own childern. The Vatican museam treasres are for the world to see. How much treasure is there?

Can you show me were the Othodox Church teaches that we sould not work towards unity. It seems to me that the diologue and official decussions between our churches is supported by the hiarchy ? You are right I dont know everything the Othodox teaches as you couldnt know everything we teach. I do know we share more in common then anyone else and that the official diologe is conferming this and other areas are being worked on.

I find it interesting that a factual, empirical lad such as yourself would give a "GUARANTEE", when there have been no such studies. You ask Sera what study she has for her estimate at the same time GUARANTEEING your statement with no study.
I think it is safe to say that with the veil of secrecy that has existed for decades, with difficulty defining criteria of what would qualify as a sexual abuse incident (conviction? payoff civilly?), with the keeping of accurate records, with the overwhelming cover up, that we probably will not see such a study any time soon.Of course a person with such an expertise in research would know that wouldn't you?
