Upcoming Visit of the Pope of Rome Causes Row in Cyprus

Archbishop Chrysostomos Demetriou of Nea Justiniana and All Cyprus (1941- ), First Hierarch of the Local Church of Cyprus

Read this:


It looks like the Archbishop Chrysostomos of Cyprus (one of the Recognised Autocephalous Local Churches) can’t shut up those who don’t cotton to his ecumenism! Well, this is Fox News, so, take it with a block of salt. In short, it looks like the ecumaniacs have lost… they can’t “discipline” the traditionalists, so the First Hierarch lost his temper in public (never a good thing). In short, there’s going to be nothing major that’ll come of this… Zenit and Asia News will post the usual blithering rot about rapprochement between Catholics and Orthodox. The Pope of Rome will pose for photos… there’ll be a motorcade through Nicosia. In the end, there’ll be a great deal of Sturm und Drang… signifying nothing. Everybody can go to bed securely… nothing is going to change. The usual cast of suspects will issue the usual statements about “love” and “understanding” and “ecumenical togetherness”… we’ve heard it all before.

Ignore this visit. It’s nothing but PR hype and piffle.
