So Father Yiannis whisks Diomedes away before anyone discovers what was done or by whom. For now…

How awkward.

Father Yiannis's last statement is rather interesting. I guess it may just be more of an Eastern Orthodox view on things. (or maybe I'm just really cynical)

Again I must ask you how you mean that! :D About F. Yiannis' last statement.

It just seems to me that depending on what you chose to believe in, humans may be more forgiving than God. For example, if you're an old testament sort of fellow, there's an episode in the 2nd book of kings in which God has forty two children torn to shreds by bears for mocking the prophet Elisha. And I won't even get into the whole LGBT/contraception business. I was just wondering if Eastern Orthodoxy has more of a tendency to focus on Christianity's basic message than on the doctrinal side of things.

AH I see! Well, yeah mostly the doctrine focuses on the forgiveness and 'don't judge or you'll probably get judged with the same severity, and you'll be f---d" attitude XD But it depends on who you asks in terms of the priesthood. Some are extremely liberal and left-wing, so to speak. Others are almost archaic and threaten to excommunicate people on a whim, though they are a small minority by now. Eastern Orthodoxy generally urges you to study the new testament more rigorously than the old, and focus o n what Christ said more than what anyone else did (though often the teachings of Paul hijack that as in, people forget they're supposed to read his letters as letters addressing a specific issue within context of those times, not as the gospel).

SO yeah all in all, Eastern Orthodoxy does focus more on Christianity's basic message than on protocol of the church.
