Does the 1872 declaration of ethnophyletism as a heresy not apply if you throw idolatry into the mix?
Everyone knows that ethnophyletism doesn't apply to Greeks.

The Amish say that their Bible is in German because Jesus spoke German. How do you argue that?

I'm a little confused, are you insinuating that Christ was Greek?
Technically he was. If you go into his mothers lineage. She has greek blood.

You were not there while He was telling us the Beatitudes. It brings tears to my eyes remembering the sound of the Holy Language of the Most High.

Do you want to lose your covenant with God? Because this is how you lose your covenant with God.

Losing communion with 75% of the Orthodox Church apparently isn't enough to humble athe Greeks atleast a bit.

I'm utterly suprised at how much distaste there is for greek nationals. I don't think you would treat any other nationality the same. I just dont get why that is. The only thing I can think of is because they are gods chosen people and your jealous.
If I was flying Porto Rican flag, you would say, wow what a great culture. I want to be Porto Rican. Hypocrites!

Well, lets see. Someone with minimal posts comes and starts a thread about bashing his Eminence because he is celebrating the 200 year centennial of Greek liberation from the Ottomans. The hateful eat it up.
Show there distaste, envy, and every other sin on record to prove there the Christians of admiration. Classic! And classless at the same time.

No one envies, despises or admires Greece. It's another Balkan country just like Albania and Macedonia, with its good and its bad.

That said, for a Christian bishop to act like our liturgical and theological tradition doesn't celebrate the overturning of idols and mock those who worship them is shameful, especially during a season when we sing: τὰ γὰρ εἴδωλα ταύτης Σωτήρ, μὴ ἐνέγκαντά σου τὴν ἰσχὺν πέπτωκεν...

Dude, You really think the Archbishop is an idol worshipper? Get a hold of yourself. Yes, its part of a culture because many great advances in philosophy, sciences and math came from that era. So its still worthy of honor. At least for those that understand it.

And your people are like the actors in the movie total recall.
Don't be envious just because you don't have hot dwarves and three-breasted women everywhere.

I don't know if it came through to you yet: you and your people are about to be grafted out (as I said, you already lost communion with 75% of the Orthodox Church). And your shameful display of prideful dishonesty gives a good example on why that is.

LOL. You should visit Ukrainian village and ask that

You're projecting.
I am sure you don't "get what that is." You Phanariots never did understand why we did NOT want to be Greeks.

I recall in the movie the Persians had the sex slaves and orgies. The Greeks had the traitors, inbred genetic rejects and scammers for priests.

Just to show that not all Greeks are gulping down Kool Aid at the Baccanalia: [the future] Pope Christopher of Alexandria, himself a Greek, on the Phanar's folly-

God's chosen people? If I'm not interpreting your passage wrong, you're saying that God's chosen people are the Greek people? I thought no ethnicity existed under God ("there is no Jew, nor Greek, etc").
