Egypt : The Orthodox Church suspends theological dialogue with the Catholic Church

The Orthodox Church announced the suspension of the theological dialogue with the Catholic Church, re-evaluating the results achieved by the dialogue from its beginning 20 years ago, and setting new standards and mechanisms for dialogue in the future.

It stated in a statement that the suspension of the dialogue was made after consultation with the churches in the Eastern Orthodox family.

The Coptic Orthodox Church stated in a statement that a general session of the Holy Synod of the Coptic Orthodox Church, headed by Pope Tawadros II, Pope of Alexandria and Patriarch of the See of Mark, and attended by 110 of its 133 members, was held at the Logos Center in the papal headquarters in the Monastery of Saint Anba Bishoy in Wadi El-Natroun.

The main committees of the Holy Synod held their annual meetings starting last Monday and for three days at the papal headquarters in St. Mark's Cathedral in Abbasiya, to discuss the reports submitted to them by their subcommittees.

The committees issued their recommendations, which were presented to the members of the Academy in today’s plenary session for approval.

The Church announced its opinion on the issue of "homosexuality" through a statement issued by the Holy Synod, which will be published later.

In its statement, the Church emphasized its rejection of same-sex relationships, supporting its opinion with many biblical verses that clearly declare the rejection of such relationships that are contrary to the human nature that God created.
