Historic Orthodox opposition to racism and phyletism

“We denounce, censure and condemn racism, that is, racial discrimination, ethnic feuds, hatreds and dissensions within the Church of Christ as contrary to the teaching of the Gospel and the holy canon of our blessed Fathers which support the holy Church and the entire Christian world, embellish it and lead it to divine godliness.”

-Taken from the 1872 Synaxis Council held at Constantinople
