Since we began talking about Turkey’s bid for EU membership, I thought the subject merited some attention, so I decided to start my own breakaway schismatic splinter threat from the “Orthodox Heirarchy” thread from whence it began.
This is an odd subject, because on the onset, it seems like a purely political question since nations like Hungary support Turkey’s bid for EU membership. But given the fact that all the current EU nations are at least nominally Chrisitan and Turkey is Muslim, there is a much deeper issue at hand.
As I mentioned before, even Greece, Turkey’s former arch-enemy supports Turkey’s entry into the EU. And I have already stated my particular supposition as to why; being the fact that they could then pour into Constantinople LEGALLY, en masse, to reclaim lands there and the EU would have to defend them against any dangers. It would actually be a very interesting idea to see Constantinople repopulated by Christians. But at what price?
