We have to withstand a rain of BS from all directions. Christian “orthodoxism” is criticised as being against liberal democracy. Why did the British in the 19th c. called greek orthodox as radical monks?Because they were preaching on liberation!
Slavery was definitively abolished
– 1848 in French colonies
– 1865 in US
– 1822 in Greece (40 years before Lincoln!) slavery was definitively abolished, inspired by “radical orthodox monks”. Greek revolution (Orlov revolt, 1770) started BEFORE the French.
It reminds me of all the skeptic academics saying Jesuits are Catholic dogmatics against science (!). That’s’s not a rain, it’s a storm of BS. You can’t find more scientifically inclined religious group than the Jesuits. This is their “strong card” not the weak one.
