    Moving Past Polemics

    Moving Past Polemics

    There's an unfortunate, but widespread, anti-Western bias that pervades much Orthodox writing, teaching, and preaching. It can be a huge barrier that not only turns off potential converts to the Church, but also a barrier for Orthodox people to think clearly and charitably. Fr. Patrick Cardine joins Stephen to talk about his diagnosis of this problem in a recent article he wrote for The Basilian Journal.

Please produce episodes more frequently

“Moving Past Polemics” is great. I so agree with, appreciate and admire your guest. And this problem he details is true about many Western denominations too, bearing the same sinful arrogance as Eastern Orthodox, including many podcasters Anyway I wish you would do more episodes more frequently. At least I will now be able to listen to your others. Thanks
