Answering an Allegedly “Orthodox Answer” on the Old Calendar

In response to the “Orthodox Answer” given about the Old and New Calendar, Fr Laurent Kleenewerk of the OCA quoted St John Chrysostom– “even if the Church made a mistake, exactness in the observance of times would not be as important as the offense caused by division and schism.”He then goes on to say that the new calendar is more “astronomically correct”.

This makes no sense. Is he therefore saying that he is guilty of division and schism? It is better, as St John Chrysostom says, to avoid division and schism, and follow the calendar of Orthodoxy for time immemorial, still used by the majority of even the official Church.
