During his visit to the United States, the head of the Phanar remembered anything. And the “OCU”, and the ecumenical dialogue with Catholics, and the conflict with the ROC, and the desire to achieve the opening of his seminary on the island of Halki. But he kept silent about the global problem – the transformation of the Hagia Sophia into a mosque. Although, as the Phanariotes previously positioned this issue, it was “a challenge for the entire Christian world,” writes Pravblog.
“Apparently, with the passage of time, the“ challenge ”has ceased to be a“ challenge ”. And the bishops of Phanar, as law-abiding citizens of Turkey, letting off steam through information channels, took Erdogan’s decision for granted.
And why should the Patriarchate of Constantinople raise this problem if there are more serious things? The same collapse of the UOC with the help of the State Department and the receipt of new church facilities in Ukraine. Or facilitating the merger of the “OCU” with the Greek Catholics.
How sad are our friends from the political science milieu joking, why should the Greeks fight for Istanbul’s Sofia, if it is possible to occupy Sophia of Kiev? It’s easier and more promising. After all, it is one thing to try to break Erdogan with the help of the State Department, and quite another to force the authorities in Kiev to take the necessary step, ”writes the Telegram channel.
