The other day I came across an interesting photo, which apparently depicts a certain Marilyn Rouvelas, who participated in the “Women’s March” in Washington.
Why there were flags of the LGBT community behind her? Who is this woman? How she is linked to the Ecumenical Patriarchate? I’m all adrift… If she is such an important person that her photos get through to the Phanar, wouldn’t her participation in mass political events like this (and among such people, to boot) harm His All-Holiness’ reputation?
In general, it would be strange to expect anything but evil from the liberal overseas. But it would be better if the Church restrained such influences, harmful to the soul but being inculcated in Western society, or at least if the Church not succumbed to such unhealthy influences!
Perhaps, it would have been necessary to explain to Ms. Rouvelas that serving the Church imposes some moral restrictions on its members … These restrictions stem from the Biblical Commandments and become especially important – not only for the personal Salvation, but also for the Salvation of many, – when one works for the Church.
