A Note on Extremism, Territorialism...etc
The Church was founded for the salvation of mankind. It does not have a party other than Christ. It does not engage in propaganda, and furthermore, strives to avoid being used in the service of propaganda.
Holy Ascension does not promote the agenda of any nation or any ethnicity or any political ideologies. Nor are we involved in projecting the “soft (or sharp) power” of any so-called “Orthodox mother country.” We are just a small community wanting to worship God as brothers and sisters in Christ in a language we understand, without pushing any ethnic agendas or political ideologies on each other.
At the same time, we bemoan the political polarization of society, of the world at large, and within the Orthodox Church. We call all to remember that we are created, each of us without exception, in the image and likeness of God. We also strongly condemn conspiracism, extremism, fundamentalism, nationalism and irridentism, and call to repentance those who would perpetrate acts of violence or hatred.
