    Why would anybody want to be Catholic when you can be Orthodox?

      Because communion with the Roman Church is necessary.

    Historically, they're Orthodox Churches cowed into submission to Rome either under the PLC of the Habsburgs. It's an odd compromise since they're largely left to their own rites and traditions, but forced to accept papal supremacy and infallibility. When they came under the Russian Empire (or Romania), they were folded into Eastern Orthodoxy with again, the only change being this time they had no pope.
    Nowadays, especially in Ukraine, it's a tradition of Western Ukrainians and is a step further in the general Russophobia, and emphasises the willingness of the people who want to turn westward despite being in the east.

      Because everyone knows west is best

        No it isn't; Open up a history book of your country. Ukraine: Birth of a Modern Nation does a good job explaining the importance of the Church.

          You somehow equate being greek-catholic with being russophobic. One is not a prerequisite for another

            Maybe not but it is generally the case for obvious reasons.

            It's not a cause and effect but generally speaking Eastern Catholics are "Russophobic" because of the political circumstances that each church has been in, in relation to Russia.

      in romania the orthodox church made a pact with the commies and asked for the greek catholic church to be outlawed. this happened in 1948 and the church was operating in a clandestine manner until 1990, and it took more than another decade to get the church buildings back from the orthodox.
      t. baptized into the clandestine greek catholic church in romania during the 1960s.

          The Unitarian Church of Translyvania is interesting. One of the last radical Protestants groups.

        What's interesting about Romania is Baptists became popular there since the 1990s.

        Ukraine has a number of Baptists too, but I haven't looked into their history.

        I'm part Hungarian and Hungary is interesting.
        For a long time since the Reformation about half of the country is Roman Catholic with the other half being Calvinist/Reformed with there seemingly being some Lutherans in this half.

    This is literally how that sounds. Ohh in what imaginative ways they twist the name of Christ in these final days...

    I went to one for a while, they're nice and like a roman Catholic church but white people. I'll probably go back to one that's closer to where I live so my kids can avoid diversity

    They look very pious and zealous, honestly speaking a lot more than the Latin Church

    I'm also glad they are adamant about their Byzantine traditions, the East is very importante for the Church

    There's Carpatho-Rusyn/Byzantine Rite ones near me.
    I haven't attended but I have been to their flea markets.
    I have partial Ukrainian/Rusyn ancestry.

    But I attend an ACNA church and sometimes Polish National Catholic churches.

    What's interesting is the dispute there was between the Byzantine Rite and Russian Orthodox around 120 years ago or so.
    Look into St Alexis Toth for an interesting history about this.

    The Ukrainian Church used to be Latinized more.

      I feel for them.
      Vatican II and Francis changed Roman Catholicism so much.
      I wonder when he will go after the other rites.

      Funny enough, they have some trads who want to bring back the changes due to Latinization. Ironic how the situation is inverted in the West.
