"I'm not submitting, and that is for SURE!"
Nor I nor any Orthodox Christian; for that matter, most of the Eastern Rite Catholics aren't submitting even now. God willing, our hierarchs won't be as foolish as those who represented us at Florence! If they are, they'll meet with the same result their predecessors did.
This is not intended to diminsh the roles of Patriarchs, Cardinals, Metropolitans, bishops, et al. If anything, it supports the need for their input into all discussions of faith. (I now know this intimately by virtue of my choosing to join the Maronite Catholic Church which has a Pariarch as its overseer.) But, ultimately, there needs to be a final voice. And that voice is the Successor of St. Peter.
