I am in the process of becoming curious about the Divine Liturgy and the practice of Eastern Christianity. However, it seems that in my visits to the Traditional Catholicism forum and other places here on CAF, the folks that I notice as being associated with the East seem hostile to the Tradition. I put the word “notice” in Italics because it has the character of a subjective impression and nothing more rigorous than that.
So I was just wondering in general: has the East fallen to the Left, or are parts still friendly to the Right? I know that there has been a lot of beauty and holiness in the East (and I’m very impressed by the shared saints of the East, such as Dionysius, Chrysostom, Athanasius, etc.) but if in latter times it has become a haven of Liberals then of course I’ll stay away.
Note: I have no intention of getting into a fight with anyone. I’m just looking for a straight answer and then I’ll go away.
