"We have concluded that when the principle of phyletism (i.e. ecclesiastical nationalism) is juxtaposed with the teaching of the Gospel and the constant practice of the Church, it is not only foreign to it, but also completely opposed, to it. We decree the following in the Holy Spirit: 1. We reject and condemn racial division, that is, racial differences, national quarrels and disagreements in the Church of Christ, as being contrary to the teaching of the Gospel and the holy canons of our blessed fathers, on which the holy Church is established and which adorn human society and lead it to Divine piety. 2. In accordance with the holy canons, we proclaim that those who accept such division according to races and who dare to base on it hitherto unheard-of racial assemblies are foreign to the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church and are real schismatics."

Dean, Your 'long ball' could be a lot longer: |
The EP could arrive himself at the EA to announce his ticket was 'one way'.
There wouldn't be a problem with overlapping bishops afterward as most of them would have had a heart attack and died on the spot.
Ah well, my Grandpa had a restaurant in the deep south in the 1940's. The KKK made him cut two windows betweent the kitchen and the dining room, one for colored people's food and another for white people's orders. He couldn't understand how it mattered because he did the cooking in the only kitchen there was, but he didn't want to have his placed burned to the ground.
Sort of like Turkish and Greek coffee....
