In February Dr. Demacopolous put out an article that I commented on here. It was responded to by Fr. John Whiteford here. Kevin Allen has returned to AFR and, as he has in the past, inserted himself into an important discussion and brought to sides together to expound upon their perspectives. I think much of American Orthodoxy is glad to have him back.
(AFR) - Earlier in the year one of Kevin's guests, Dr George E Demacopolous, wrote on the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese blog that through the increasing expansion of 'Orthodox fundamentalism' in ordinary parishes, "the entire Orthodox Church is at risk of being hijacked by extremists". Father John Whiteford, ROCOR priest and blogger wrote a robust rebuttal to this article. On this episode of Ancient Faith Today Kevin discusses with his guests their views of 'Orthodox fundamentalism': what it is, whether it truly exists and what impact it is having on the Orthodox Church today.
