Pope Francis’ actions certainly speak louder than words

Some may well find Koumoullis’ piece heretical and hardly in the tradition of Orthodoxy. I personally do not and he gets right to the crux of the matter, comparing the differences between Pope Francis and Archbishop Chrysostomos. And it’s not only the words: Pope Francis’ actions certainly speak louder than words.

I will conclude with a quotation from Voltaire, one of Europe’s great thinkers and writers, which I’ve posted a couple of times before. It makes it abundantly clear where I stand on the subject, Having said that, each to his own and I naturally respect those who embrace any religion.

“Religion began when the first scoundrel met the first fool.”
