To the contrary, we see all of the carnage that has been wrought by Protestantism and modern secular humanism as the only logical result of Scholasticism. That extends even today to the destruction of the Latin liturgy and the crisis we have seen in the Roman Catholic Church.

To which we can quite simply reply that:
A) that is ignorant and a statement that can only be made in bad faith or by one who does not understand st Thomas
B) the nationalisation of the orthodox churches is a result of separation from Rome
C) the obsession with small t traditions and the stagnant theology is for the same reason

I have to say I agree in some way with Su, eastern orthodox theology is stagnant because of the very nature of eastern orthodox faith and so of course they are 'jealous' of someone like St Thomas
