This is a total and utter misunderstanding of Church Doctrine. Orthodox Doctrine doesn't change, at most it is clarified. The Doctrine is the sum total of the Patristic Consensus. It is the reason why people get so shitty about saints, because to change saints to many is almost to repudiate the Doctrines. Similarly it fails to mimic real life, where morality laws in the West fell on the church to be enforced.With four-hundred years having passed, and Rhomaion remaining a modern power and the center of the Eastern Orthodox world, the lack of reform in church doctrine and what secular control is available to it have not mimicked our own world.
