you can read the author's comments here. But it is also a question many have wondered about for a long time.
Why do the Orthodox publicly identity so strongly with organizations like the National Council of Churches and individual Protestant churches within that group and why has Orthodoxy seemed to have lost its voice on the greater moral and theological errors of the day (like abortion, same sex marriage, ambiguous confessions of God, and anti-creedal doctrines)?
For all the great appreciation and respect I have for Orthodoxy, I am just as mystified as this author by the willingness to continue in the empty forms and gestures of the NCC and why Orthodoxy has remained mostly hidden in the great debates of our time over issues of sexuality, abortion, and anti-Trinitarian definitions of God? If there are Orthodox who could explain this, I welcome their help in figuring out why Orthodoxy in America seems more comfortable with liberal Protestantism's rejection of Biblical authority, the unique revelation of God in the Trinity, and the full embrace of a liberal social agenda? If I have missed out where Orthodoxy has vigorously disavowed these associations and positions, I welcome the the chance to correct the record here.
