What about the fact that currently the Orthodox Church allows divorce and remarriage for more reasons than adultery? why is there this further departure from even the view we are discussing?
The position on divorce and remarriage of the Orthodox Church is actually fairly reasonable, at least much more reasonable than what Card. Kasper has been proposing.
A matter on which the Catholic Church has a much more reasonable position is contraception, at least much more reasonable, scriptural, traditional and patristic than what many in the Orthodox Church have been proposing. Previously we were in agreement with them, but they caved in to the world and departed from Scriptures, Tradition and the Fathers on this matter.
Now talk about departure from the discussion!
