'The time has come for Christians to join efforts and come out as a united front for the noble goal of protecting the family when confronted by the challenges of the secular world for the sake of preserving the future of civilization,' Metropolitan Hilarion (Alfeyev) said, addressing the Extraordinary Synod of the Family in Rome..."

The idea thatt gays are threatening civilization is silly* but the idea of RC and EO working together on promoting is nice.

Axios!

*Can't think of anything else to which HE might be referring to. Probably not divorce, contraception or abortion although there's common ground in those too.

Don't worry, he saves the overheated rhetoric for the Eastern Catholics, rather than the Latin Catholics.
