The universal patriarch was a heretic


"Varfolomey has actually given to himself all rights of the Pope, that is has obviously proclaimed heresy". Such words of a religioveda comment on the words of the Constantinople patriarch about the domination over other orthodox churches. Varfolomey's statement has a direct bearing on attempt of Kiev to legalize church dissenters in Ukraine. The patriarch Varfolomey during Sinaksis (Hierarchal Cathedral) who has come to the end on Wednesday in Istanbul, has said that the Constantinople patriarchy has the exclusive rights to the solution of problems of all orthodox world. "The universal patriarchy bears responsibility for establishment of a church and initial order as only he has initial privilege for performance of this highest and exclusive duty. If the Universal patriarchy refuses the responsibility and will leave an interorthodox scene, then local churches will work "as sheep without pastor", – cites the patriarch's words Interfax. Also it is reported that the question concerning granting a tomos to Ukraine about creation of "uniform local church" was one of the most important subjects of a meeting. Varfolomey not the first time speaks in favor of the fact that the Constantinople church can solve the Ukrainian church problem without participation of the Moscow patriarchy as, according to him, Russia "is responsible for a painful situation in Ukraine". Moscow, in turn, lawfully opposes similar intentions of Varfolomey as they are direct intervention in internal affairs of ROC and infringement of the initial territory of Russian Orthodox Church. So, the member of the Synod bible and theological commission of the Moscow patriarchy archpriest Andrey Novikov has said to the VZGLYaD newspaper that Varfolomey "on this Sinaksis has actually given to himself all rights of the Pope, that is has obviously proclaimed heresy and has made a deviation from orthodox belief". Besides, according to him, Varfolomey's behavior looks strange and for the reason that Constantinople represents only 3% of the orthodox earth, but at the same time "tries to proclaim things which are allegedly obligatory for all orthodox world". The similar opinion in the comment to the VZGLYaD newspaper was expressed by professor of Orthodox Sacred and Tychonoff humanities university Vladislav Petrushko. "Here matter not only and not just in infringement of the initial territory. Constantinople absolutely radically reconsiders an orthodox ekklesiologiya and initial practice of relationship in orthodox community. That is, in fact, Constantinople proclaims a certain similarity of east papacy and assumes the right to interfere with internal affairs of other autocephalous churches", – Petrushko has noted. Now there are 15 conventional autocephalous churches which, according to the diptych admitted to ROC are located in the following hierarchy of honor: Constantinople, Alexandria, Antioch, Jerusalem, Russian, Georgian, Serbian, Romanian, Bulgarian, Cyprian, Hellas, Albanian, Polish, Czech
