NFTU: So, the Phanar in typical heretical hypocrite fashion will denounce the horrid violence in the Middle East, but, it will continue its persecution and killing against the monks of Esphigmenou Monastery which stands up for the principles of Orthodoxy? It seems that you are exempt from persecution in Bartholomew’s mind as long as you agree with him on ecumenism and trans-religious syncretism; if you disagree and proclaim True Orthodoxy he’ll have you starved, prevent heating oil from arriving (in the winter), prohibit access to medicine, have people attack you with sledgehammers and tractors, run you of the road, police beat you, and otherwise main, murder or kill you.
Interfaith Meeting and Declaration in Vienna
In a demonstration of multi-religious solidarity, leaders of Christian, Muslim and other religious communities from Iraq, Syria and the larger Middle East region, meeting at the KAICIID Conference “United Against Violence in the Name of Religion” on 19 November 2014, denounced with one voice all violence in the name of religion, calling on the international community to protect religious and cultural diversity in Iraq and Syria. Religious leaders from Sunni, Shiite, Christian, Mandean, and Yazidi communities across the Middle East jointly issued the Vienna Declaration, “United against Violence in the Name of Religion,” at the international conference organized by the KAICIID Dialogue Centre. This is the first time religious leaders representing so many different religions from a crisis region have come together as one to denounce oppression, marginalization, persecution and killing of people in the name of religion. His Eminence Metropolitan Emmanuel of France, member of the Board of Directors for KAICIID, represented the Ecumenical Patriarchate at the meeting.
