Not everyone who showed up to protest Pope Benedict’s visit to the UK were secularists. At least one Eastern Orthodox gentleman joined in to send the pontiff a message :
It wasnt really a poster; it more like Magic Marker theology on a pizza box. And a young man named Toby Guise was happy to explain where, in his opinion, the Catholic Church had gone wrong.
Filioque means And the Son, and refers to a centuries-old debate between the Catholic and Orthodox Churches, about whether the Holy Spirit proceeds from the Father alone, as the Orthodox believe, or from the Father and the Son, which is the Catholic teaching.
Thats tough stuff, material for smart folks debating in a graduate school seminar. Perhaps its too bad the Pope didnt see the pizza box; he would have been amused.
