It looks like he's breaking her neck.  I don't think that's what they mean by "leading to Christ".

Maybe some people on this forum need grow a pair instead of crying for everyone else to be “nice”.

(my highlighting)

(implied facepalm)

What? Did it take you 14 days to figure it out?

No. It took seeing your words in Ebor's response, the latter being that which I found actually worth reading all of.

Yet you fount it worth your time to comment, rendering your above response false.

If women were to remain silent all the time, and linguistic studies have shown that men do talk more than women, then we would not have as examples, St. Olga of Russia, Equal to the Apostles. St, Mary Magdalen, Equal to the Apostles, and St. Photini.

St. Mary Magdalen and St. Photini also taught others about Christ. St. Photini, the Samaritan Woman at the well, led her entire village to Christ, not by extensive teaching, but simply by one sentence, "Come and see ..."

Nero had St. Photini brought to him and asked if she would now relent and offer sacrifice to the idols. St. Photini spat in his face, and laughing at him, said, “O most impious of the blind, you profligate and stupid man! Do you think me so deluded that I would consent to renounce my Lord Christ and instead offer sacrifice to idols as blind as you?”

Hearing such words, Nero gave orders to throw St. Photini down a well, where she surrendered her soul to God in the year 66.


Good points, though linguistic studies actually show that women and men talk roughly the same amounts, just distributed differently depending on the social situation.

Have you read more recent studies? The ones I read were dated before 2009, but I do not have access unless I visit the university library. However, I do not feel safe visiting there, not with all the construction still going on to replace earthquake damaged buildings, and the huge sinkhole that recently opened up.

Well, I can't remember the exact source.  Just my Linguistics textbook from the semester before last.

Sometimes, though, one person being courageous might be dismissed as "whining" by another who doesn't like being challenged.  That word was used in this thread to describe a woman the person said he worked with.  

Without you being there and knowing the context of the conversation, you have no idea if they were whining or not.

That is true and without being any of us being there and knowing the context of the conversation it is not known if the poster himself related it accurately, phrased it to show his own viewpoint of a situation or if he just dismissed a woman speaking up about what is *to her* some sort of bad situation as automatically "whining". 

I was the one that used the term in an earlier post.  I assure you, I was there and was quite aware of the context of the conversation.  Whether or not you believe it was accurately stated is your problem.

We all need forgiveness....none of us are prefect.

May God forgive you, and all of us.

I may be out of town and visiting an EO church in the next couple of months. Is there anything I should do during communion? I can't remember if people go up for a blessing or just for communion.

I would just stay in place and not approach to avoid any awkwardness. You should not attempt to receive communion as an OO in a EO church.

I still say that we, Orthodox Christians, need to be nicer to people.
