Our involvement in various religious topics- which relate completely to Orthodoxy, should at no time be seen as intolerance or as some sort of hostile activity. We assure everybody concerned that we feel a deep sense of brotherhood with all our fellow men, since we are all creations of the same Good Creator! However, the well known and well sounding views about "love" that are being aimed at us "ad nauseum" by the leaders of universality and ecumenism- does not help support such ideas that would finally lead (which we also wish) to the very desired union. The solution is not for us to inattentively hide the existing differences but to note them and deal with them appropriately.
Below, a separate publication is provided which reports on some different falsehoods of Papism. Its uniqueness is in that they are enumerated by a papist archbishop! We believe it is fair to hear him and to think hard about it.
 
If we recognize Pope Pius 9th as infallible, then we should also recognize as infallible all his predecessors. Good! But here, honourable brothers, history raises her authentic and valid voice showing that the Popes were fallible. You may protest against what I say or deny it, whatever you wish; however I can prove it.
Pope Victor (192), in the beginning, had approved and endorsed "mondanism" (heresy in the 2nd century) but later condemned it. Pope Marcellin (296-303), was an idolater. He entered the temple of Estia and offered a sacrifice to the goddess. You may say that this was a case of weakness, but I respond, the lieutenant of Jesus Christ dies but does not become turncoat or apostate. Pope Liberius (358) agreed with the condemnation of Athanasius and decided to accept  Arianism with the intention of bringing about his freedom from exile and be restored to his earlier office. Pope Honorius (625) followed the monothelitism. This was proved by Father Gratry. Pope Gregory 1st (578-590) calls antichrist anyone who receives the title of Ecumenical bishop, however despite all these, Pope Bonifatius (607-608) forced the patricidal Emperor Phoca to bestow him that title. Popes Paschalius 2nd (1088-1099) and Eugene 3rd  (1145) approved duels  but were forbidden by Popes Julius 2nd (1609) and Pius 4th (1560).  Pope Eugene recognized the Synod of the Kingdom and the restoration of the use of the Holy Chalice in the Church of Bohemia. Pope Pius 2nd (1458) put an end to this privilege, and Pope Adrian 2nd (867-872), pronounced civil marriages valid. Pope Pius 7th (1800-1823) would disapprove of them and Pope Sixtus 5th (1585-1590) announced the issuing of the Holy Bible and with the famous Seal approved its reading. Pope Pius 7th disapproved those who read it. Pope Clemens 14th (1769-1774) abolished the Jesuit Order which was allowed by Pope Paul 3rd. Pope Pius 7th restored it.
