The Eastern Churches and St. Thomas Aquinas

They have different ways of approaching and respecting the same subject, so their should be mutual respect amongst them. I don't see hatred for St. John Chrysostom just because of his methodology. The approach of the East makes far less sense to a Latin Catholic than the approach of the West does to an Eastern Catholic, yet it is the Latin theologians who are contemptuously reviled. To me, the bitter hatred is absolutely unreasonable.

Even if it's not what you mean, when you say things like "Aquinas is by far the best theologian the Church has ever known, and nothing from any other Fathers, except maybe Augustine, even remotely compare to him," you kind of come across as contemptuously reviling everyone else.
