“[I]t does not follow that Irenaeus is a more reliable witness than Vatican II to how the teaching authority of the Church functioned in his time.”
-Michael Liccione’s comment on his blog highlighting the shear gnosticism of Vatican II vs. the Orthodoxy of Irenaeus. That is one of the most amazing statements I’ve EVER read. They’ve locked themselves up in infallibility in which there is no turning back.
No critically thinking Orthodox could take this idea of tradition seriously.
