This is the most blessed Tikhon, Archbishop of Washington, Metropolitan of all America and Canada, Orthodox Church in America.  A Tikhon is a Bishop in the Orthodox church.  People from all over the spectrum came to the March for Life even though it did not get as much press as all the other marches that are popping up like mushrooms.  The Orthodox church is interesting and “upholding its own vision of the Kingdom of God. Uppermost in the mind of the Church is its prayer that human relations of all kinds might be incorporated into the Kingdom of God. Such a sacramentally oriented perspective, based on the words of the Lord’s Prayer, “Thy kingdom come on earth, as it is in heaven,” when applied to the distinct God-established realm of governmental and political life does not mean the submission of the State to the Church, but rather the acceptance by the State of the God-like principles of justice, equity, genuine service and care, and mutuality. Though the State is not “under the Church” as is the case with everything else – ideally it should in fact and practice be “under God.” (Orthodox Online Encyclopedia).
