"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."

Vice President Joe Biden jokingly berated campaign donors at a fundraiser this morning in Washington D.C.
“I guess what I’m trying to say without boring you too long at breakfast – and you all look dull as hell, I might add. The dullest audience I have ever spoken to. Just sitting there, staring at me. Pretend you like me!” he said according to the pool report.
The breakfast was held at the Fairfax Hotel with more than 200 members of the Turkish and Azerbaijani communities, according to the campaign. Tickets started at $2500, with all proceeds from the event going to the Obama Victory Fund.
Editor's Note: I'm sure his next meeting, after cashing the $500,000 worth of checks, was with Greek Cypriots to assure them of his support...LOL
