The Eastern Churches and St. Thomas Aquinas

Now, in terms of actually living the faith, it does not matter. The Eastern and Western Churches have the same foundation and the same end.

And explicit wordy confirmation of one's particular understanding of a Church teaching is not necessary nor should it be demanded from others.

I will advance the notion that Easterners are suspicious or leery of St. Thomas not from jealousy, but from having bad experiences with jerks mangling Scholastic thought.  If that was my exposure to St. Thomas, I too wouldn't want anything to do with him or Scholastic thought.
