THE GREAT CHRISTIAN SCHISM
By Ryan Finney
Clergy For da east
In the east, the priests could marry, plain and simple.
Clergy for da west
The west priests could NOT marry because if they did and died, their wife would get their property which was owned by the church, the church didn't want that, so, no marriage for them.
Leadership of the west
This is a sloth pope. In the west, the people were ruled by popes.
Leadership of the east
The east was ruled by patriarchs, they did not like popes at all.
Idols in the west
The west was open to idols of christianity, they believed them to be a tradition.
Icons in the east...
Yeah, the east really hated icons, they believed they were just like false idols and even went into people houses and burned the pictures.
