So, I was listening to some Chant from both East and West Catholics and I found in the comment section on youtube, another “Apologetics session” (like not even close ;)) discussing the Orthodox and Catholic faiths. They were all the basic arguments and such until I saw this one post by an Orthodox brethren. He seemed ill informed about the Catholic Church but what struck me is that, while listing off all of the RC heresies, he included Pews to be a heresy. :eek: I will be honest, I didn’t see that one coming.
Now, I have seen Eastern Orthodox and Eastern Catholic videos where the Lay faithful didn’t sit down and had no pews. And I have always wondered why.
So its a twofold question.
1.) Are pews a heresy or “modernization” of some sort?
2.) Why don’t the Orthodox and EC’s have pews?
Thanks and God Bless you all
