Because I don't play telephone.
That's nice. But what I mean is, why don't you ask your question on a Roman Catholic
forum? Why come to an Orthodox Christian forum and ask them
what the Catholics believe? Isn't that
I'd rather hear it from you yourselves...unless you're ashamed of your beliefs.
Oh, I'm not ashamed of my beliefs. In fact there is no room for either pride nor shame for us in our lives as Christians. To hold something back from shame is actually pride anyway.
I thought you could give me an honest answer, but it appears I was wrong.
I have no control over how you choose to perceive the world. But lets look at things objectively for a minute. You came here, thinking we were Catholics, we correct you, then you insult our Faith (without even knowing what we believe) like a raving derelict drunkard, and then you wonder why no one takes you seriously. Could it possibly be you
that has the problem?
So if this indirect relating is an example of your religion, then I can tell you right now, your religion is not about honesty.
Orthodox Christianity is not a religion. It is the antithesis of it. Orthodoxy is the only cure for the neurosis that is "religion".
