"The Christianity of history is not Protestantism. If ever there were a safe truth it is this, and Protestantism has ever felt it so; to be deep in history is to cease to be a Protestant." (-John Henry Newman, An Essay on the Development of Christian Doctrine).

"Where the bishop is, there let the people gather; just as where ever Jesus Christ is, there is the Catholic Church". -St. Ignatius of Antioch (ca 110 AD)a martyr later thrown to the lions, wrote to a church in Asia Minor. Antioch was also where the term "Christian" was first used.

“But if I should be delayed, you should know how to behave in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of truth.” 1 Timothy 3:15

"This is the sole Church of Christ, which in the Creed we profess to be one, holy, catholic and apostolic." -CCC 811

Piraeus Bishop Asks Court To Stop Mosque

Source: ilovemuslims.net
Why the Patriarch is against building of mosques? Perhaps this excerpt from Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan (from BBC News) which is a shared sentiments by Islamists and silent Muslims living within our societies under the protection of our Democratic rules.

"The mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, the minarets our bayonets, and the faithful our soldiers..."

While Muslims demand freedom of religion in our free societies, they restrict building of churches in Muslim dominated countries such as the Middle East. While Saudi Arabia and other Gulf regions finance mega-building of mosques around the world, they FORBID building even small churches in their countries. If there were churches built they restricted putting up the CROSS on top of it. The cross on top of our church buildings is for them a sign of dominance and they wouldn't allow. But they put the CRESCENT very high in skycraper sizes within our cities-- a sign that Islam is now dominating the world.

ATHENS (The National Herald)– With the Greek government set to construct an official mosque, a leading Greek Orthodox Church leader has asked the country’s highest court to block it as unconstitutional. Bishop Seraphim of Piraeus told the Council of State that the plans violate Article 13 of the Constitution, which stipulates freedom of religious conscience. He said the construction of a mosque should be preceded by an impact study on ethics and public order, the newspaper Kathimerini reported. Seraphim, known for his anti-Semitic remarks, also told the court that he believes go against the constitutional principle of equality, as religious minorities wishing to erect a place of worship in Greece have so far had to apply for a building permit from the authorities. "Building a mosque in the center of Athens will not only damage public order and the morality of Greek society but also trigger a series of events which will, with mathematical certainty, dismantle the cohesion of the Greek nation as a Christian Orthodox people," he said earlier.
