Hopko on Rome
This nearly year-old article was republished online this week by Orthodoxy Today (which seems to be down), starting a firestorm in blog com-boxes. It’s a mixed bag.

The discussion at Pontifications.

Huw Raphael on his reverse Uniatism/Byzantinocentrism:
Seems that Fr Tom wants the Pope to make normative all Eastern traditions, with Western traditions being ‘OK’ for ‘pastoral reasons’. How generous of him.
I wonder if Hopko’s being ironic on purpose. It mirrors how Rome has treated its Eastern Catholic churches.

Here Owen (The Ochlophobist) confirms what Mule and I have seen and said about mainstream RC. He also nails the common Western attitude towards the Orthodox. From Ad Orientem.
