Purely political schism in Orthodox Church

This one developed rather quickly, which is a shame, because it is not over anything relevant to faith, such as theology, doctrine, or worship

The Russian Orthodox Church’s Holy Synod ruling body convened on Friday to consider how to respond as the Ukrainian Orthodox Church has courted Constantinople to formally make it a self-governing body independent of Moscow. [...]

Vladimir Legoida, a Russian Church spokesman, said the Holy Synod had decided to suspend its participation in all structures chaired or co-chaired by representatives of the Patriarchate of Constantinople.

It is also suspending all services with top priests of the Patriarchate of Constantinople and will not commemorate the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I in its services, Legoida wrote on social media, summarizing the outcome of the meeting.

Re: Purely political schism in Orthodox Church

We've got a vigorous friend and defender of pedophiles for a pope in the West and a completely pointless schism occuring in the East.  Not looking so hot for Christianity's role in the world these days.
