Orthodox denomination quits National Council of Churches
ENGLEWOOD, N.J. - The Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America is quitting the National Council of Churches, saying membership "no longer contributes" to the mission of the denomination.

The Rev. George Kevorkian, assistant to the bishops at Englewood headquarters, said Antiochian delegates took the action because of the council's "very noticeable shift toward a political agenda" -- for instance, involvement with secular organizations that take liberal stands on abortion.

The Rev. Thomas Zain, dean of the Brooklyn, N.Y., cathedral, said the Orthodox were also upset that the Rev. Robert Edgar, the National Council's general secretary, withdrew endorsement of a joint statement with the National Association of Evangelicals defining marriage as "the holy union of one man and one woman." ...

My church never even had the problem of joining the citywide council of churches. Ecumenism with churches that are not Christian, ends up dragging down a good church rather than uplifting the bad ones.

Amen RosaMarie,

And your "it reeks.." is a perfect description.

"The news of an orthodox denomination leaving the National Council of Churches is good, not tragic. Perhaps others will follow, unless of course they fear independence more than apostasy"

Mike, I see I wasn't clear. Their leaving wasn't tragic, the reason why they had to leave was tragic. How can the National Council withdraw their statement that a marriage was between a man and woman? It reeks of PC and the desire to include everyone and everything and every lifestyle into one group.

I applaud the decision to leave. I am aghast at the reasons why.

Tragic. The apostosy in main stream 'Christianity' continues and gathers up speed. I say this with all sincerity, it is the 'Political' Christian who I fear the most. To me, this looks like the Ecumenical movement is winning.
