Is Romaios Amerodox?orthonorm said:I swear I am leaving this board in a minute, but I wanted to say that I think rather than ethics, we should be describing such "rules" or as you say "what's legit" as morals.augustin717 said:What's unacknowledged by many is that ethics themselves ('what's legit") have changed and continue to change over time.
These proscriptions certainly change.
But more interesting and a reason for the change in morals is a changing ethos or ethics. Here the Church is simply not hermetically sealed away from the world but is conditioned by it as it conditions the greater world.
Maybe I'll get back to that other post, it takes this up in different language, but what you bother people with the most around here isn't the morals or behaviors of Grandpa Vlad, but of the ethos you suggest in which much of Orthodoxy lies is nearly contrary to the ethos of most of the board members and likely most Amerodox on a whole.
