"In coming to understand the Procession of the Holy
Ghost, from the Father and the Son, we can see this
from the fact that the Son is "begotten" from the Father--
this is the first kind of procession-- the Son exists from
eternity, but was "generated" as the Word (John 1:1).
Now, the Holy Ghost is called the Spirit of Christ, the
Spirit of the Son (Gal., iv, 6), the Spirit of Jesus (Acts, xvi,
7). These terms imply a relation of the Spirit to the Son,
which can only be a relation of origin.
In order for something to be "sent" it must proceed. Just
as the Father externally sent the Son into time (in the
world) the Son internally proceeds from the Father in the
Trinity. This is confirmed by Christ who said that "He"
would send the Holy Ghost into the world (John 15:26,),
thus it may be said that he internally proceeds from both
Father and Son in the Trinity (Acts 2:33). An objection
however is that some tend to try and distinguish
between being "sent" and "proceeding" however such
an objection is put to rest if one comes to see that all
things that are sent actually proceed from their very
source, much like the suns rays are sent to us from the
sun but in actual fact we see that all light (no matter how
small the amount of light we receive) all proceed from
the sun (their source)."

To me it all makes sense :)
What are the Orthodox objections to this? I preferably would like to hear from someone who is in opposition to the Catholic point of view on the filioque.
God bless you all :)
