Hello,

I was referred to this board by www.carm.org discussion-board poster Athanasius, an EO.  Can only EO post on this board, and what kind of topics usually frequent the "Free-For-All" board?

Thanks for your time.

Friend,

Non-EO are welcome; in fact, due to a family technicality at this time I am not yet EO myself (I am an Eastern-Rite Catholic).  That will hopefully be changing soon, especially since I found an EO parish that my wife likes....

Anyway, free-for-all usually is for posts that are polemical or that are not pertaining to Orthodoxy but which are explosive.  Just search the archives and get a feel--but don't worry, as we moderators will move it for you if you put it in the wrong place.

InquisitorKind,

Welcome to the forums.  Of course you do not have to be Orthodox to participate, you just have to be interesting in discussing Orthodoxy and be willing to treat Orthodox teachings with respect (ie saying "I disagree with the place of the Virgin Mary in the Orthodox Church" instead of "You Mariolators should read the Bible just once and you'll see that she was just the winner in the Incarnational Jackpot.").  We will do our best to treat you with the same respect.  

Let me know if I can help in any way.   Feel free to post and start more topics.
