what is this political forum I keep hearing about?
« on: September 27, 2007, 11:33:36 AM »


I keep hearing about this political forum that is private, so now my curiosity is peaked.  Which oh so talented administrator are we to contact about this forum?

Any one of the three (Anastasios, Robert, FrChris) can do it.
"O Cross of Christ, all-holy, thrice-blessed, and life-giving, instrument of the mystical rites of Zion, the holy Altar for the service of our Great Archpriest, the blessing - the weapon - the strength of priests, our pride, our consolation, the light in our hearts, our mind, and our steps"

Standard procedure is to contact Fr. Chris if I'm not mistaken?

I have messaged Fr. Chris and await his reply.  I look forward to seeing what some of you have to say about politics, though I can guess with a few of ya.  :o

That is correct. Fr. Chris has posted a message about this in Board News:

Due to some confusion regarding who to petition for access to the Private forums (i.e., the Politics Board as well as the EO/OO Board if/when these posts move towards polemical debates), I wish to clarify the following:

If you want to post in the Private Forums, you must PM me with a message asking to do so.

Some recent petitions were made to others, and no action had yet been taken perhaps because they were assuming I was copied in. So, to prevent such problems:

PM Fr Chris for access to the Private Forums.
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

I hope not for your sake only.
Remember what "non-moderated entails"  ;)


If OC.net is a nice placid place, the private area reminds me of a biker bar. :D

I expect to get effluent thrown at me, after all I live quite a different life than a single male seminarian or an empty nester. Not to mention I have heard all the programming of the radical evangelicals for years, as well as the liberals.  I find myself not neatly fitting into either typical party line or stereotype.
Maybe I will throw you guys a bone you hadn't even considered.  Who knows?

That would be good.

Great description...probably why I like those forms better. I've always enjoyed a good rough biker bar. ;)

They share many similarities: strong willed, independent, and defying social expectations...qualities that are always attractive. ;)
