It would never be enough for the Papacy to simply scrap the filioque, let alone to simply ‘clarify’ it. To become Orthodox, the Roman Catholics would have to dispense with the entire piety and the entire system of ecclesiology, eschatology, soteriology, theology, christology, mysteriology, pnuematology, etc. that are the product of the filioque. The papists are not simply in schism but are in fact worshipping a different god, a god that does not exist, a god of their imagination. They are no church, their bishops are not bishops, and their mysteries are no mysteries at all.No merely formal and juridical act of either lifting anathemas or God Forbid concelebration would change that. It might, however, change us, if we join ourselves to the cup of Belial. Better that we die in flame and agony than be united to those who created the filioque out of their heresies and impieties, who repudiated their apostolic succession by altering the apostolic creed. Let me be anathema if I be joined to them.
