Since it has come up, and gee, I knew it would-what exactly IS "Canonical Orthodoxy"? While there are Canons supporting the use of the Julian Calendar, and there are canons that forbid, upon pain of depostion (self-deposition-that means if you do it you depose yourself in the eyes of the Church), common prayer with the heterodox, it seems most of the Orthodox Churches are not too observant of these canons...there are also canons that call for laity to be excommuniated and clergy to suffer being deposed if they fail to keep the fasts of the Church...lets see, um, well, some of the SCOBA jurisdictions, I think, have all this new age mentality about "oh well, the fasts are too difficult today," or "well, fasting should be more about loving your brother and that sort of thing before youget all concerned with whaty you eat..." AND THESE are the positions of the SCOBA jurisdictions-the "CANONICAL" jurisdictions! The ones who insist only really on ONE canon-the one that says "I am Your Bishop and you shall have no other Bishop befoe you!"
And by the way-did anyone know that Patriarch Meletios Metaxakis of Constantinope was uncanonically elected to the Patriarchate? Hmmm-but Constantinople-they are the Kings of the Canonicals, arent they? Well, guess it aint all what its cracked up to be, eh?
