Having fun yet?

 :D :laugh: :P :D :laugh: :P

I know I am. I hope you are as well.

Thanks for the overall welcome, and allowing me to help create some buzz here at OC.net
I think, if possible, I should like to win the title of Beloved Resident Protestant.  ;D  :angel:

I don't know...I think Ebor has a pretty strong grip on that title.  Speaking of him, where is he?  He hasn't posted recently.  (Btw, he is Episcopalian and so is Keble.)

I was gonna say the same thing.  Sorry Cleopas; maybe #3 (after Ebor and Keble)?  3rd's either a charm or your out.  We'll see.  :D

Why is this in a private board? What will be so polemical about this discussion?

Already some are arguing that I cannot be the Resident Beloved Protestant.
Is that Polemic 'nuff?
Plus it involves Orthodox interaction on a Protestant Issue.

Oh, Orthodox-Protestant discussion isn't necessarily private; we do have a public board for it, with a fantastic moderator I might add. Let's keep the Private board for true polemics. We're going public with this.

The general rule in life about nicknames is that YOU NEVER get to create or suggest your own :) :) :)
Wasn't much buzz with me.   :laugh: Like when I am doing field research in August, I learned a long time ago to ignore the flies that won't leave you alone.  But I must say, I do give you a hand for sticking by what you believe. 

I went to Catholic School.  It's not hard to "spot the Catholic school kids" when we wore uniforms to school and home from school and if you went to the mall or something after school, you still had your uniform on. You don't know how many times I had to hear negative comments and prejudice from protestants.  I even had a friend whose step father was a public school teacher.  I went to pick her up and he told me I wasn't welcome to step foot back on his property because I was Catholic.  He then told me what two groups were equal in his mind to the bad-ness of Catholics.  My van driver hated Catholics, yet she drove the public school van that drove us to Catholic School (public schools are required to bus private school children, not any room to argue on this as the Supreme Court has had it's say).
When we first moved back here 16 years ago there was a Free Methodist prayer organization building across the street.  They'd put anti-Catholic tracts in our mail box (two federal violations if you wanted to push the issue, A) it is illegal for anyone other than the mail carrier to put anything in your mail box b) this fell under intimidation and hate-crimes, you had to see the material).
Well, I think after a year we moved there that church was for sale. 
So I learned a long time ago that I know what I believe and only the Holy Spirit can guide me on that subject.

Ebor had a gender re-assignment change? :D  Seriously, I had no clue he is a she. :-[ :-[  Sorry Ebor.
