Is Christ, like the 'prophet' Mohammed, really such a wimp that He can't take care of Himself? Do we really need to go around smashing things that offend us and, like the woman in the video, urge the state to put blasphemers to death?

One good thing about this thread is that reading through the posts makes it easier to understand how so many well-intentioned moderate Muslims could wind up supporting Islamic terrorists.
"Il ne faut imaginer Dieu ni trop bon, ni méchant. La justice est entre l'excès de la clémence et la cruauté, ainsi que les peines finies sont entre l'impunité et les peines éternelles." - Denise Diderot, Pensées philosophiques 1746

I think we've said more than enough on a pedantic digression.
Mor Ephrem is a nice guy.  Just say sorry and it will all be ok. Say I had things that were inside troubling me but I didn't know how to express appropriately. I will not behave that way again but I am seeking help.

...if you feel Mor really is in spiritual danger, pray the Jesus prayer for him.   :police:

You can't give this up, can you? No matter how sophistical and regrettable the posts you must craft to pursue it.

Mor is enjoying holding up a mirror for me to recognize myself in.

Fr Seraphim Rose would disagree with you on that.

I've split off the side conversation about Fr. Seraphim Rose into a new thread here:

http://www.orthodoxchristianity.net/forum/index.php/topic,69506.0.html

Let's try to keep this thread quotable, my dears.

"May the Lord our God remember in His kingdom all Holy Catholic Apostolic Church, which heralds the Word of Truth and fearlessly offers and distributes the Holy Oblation despite human deficiencies and persecutions moved by the powers of this world, in all time and unto the ages of ages."

Anyhow when God was asked he said Eastern Orthodox is true Church and not Catholic Church. So come home and enjoy.

Having read a fair amount of Abbot Tryphon statements over the years, I do feel that the frequent contact with the public has an overall harmful effect, in that it creates an image of monasticism as a factory for inspirational quotes and cat pictures.

For anyone who has gone through the same circumstances tell me your experiences with dating as an Orthodox in a culture dominated by the non Orthodox.
When dating Roman Catholics I've found it can be awkward deciding whether to have the first date in the midst of created or uncreated purgatorial fire. You don't want to pressure her, but at the same time you don't want to compromise.

A truly bogus homophobic quote. We expect more out of you.
If you cannot remember everything, instead of everything, I beg you, remember this without fail, that not to share our own wealth with the poor is theft from the poor and deprivation of their means of life; we do not possess our own wealth but theirs.  If we have this attitude, we will certainly offer our money; and by nourishing Christ in poverty here and laying up great profit hereafter, we will be able to attain the good things which are to come. - St. John Chrysostom

I understand that you and other posters here are ostensibly concerned with how to reach out to LGBT people. They represent about 3% of the population,
So a greater percentage than the 1% of lost sheep that Christ went out in search of.

Mor Ephrem is a nice guy.  Just say sorry and it will all be ok. Say I had things that were inside troubling me but I didn't know how to express appropriately. I will not behave that way again but I am seeking help.

...if you feel Mor really is in spiritual danger, pray the Jesus prayer for him.   :police:

I wonder if her despondency is due to her cutting of the watermelon on the day commemorating the Beheading of John the Baptist.

Why do posters that claim to have me blocked keep sending me pms and responding to my posts? That makes no sense.

As an atheist, I still consider Orthodoxy to be the best expression of Christianity (having gone through the laborious task of reading all the fathers, and the teachings of the apostles, etc. etc. etc.)
Oh Holy Apostle, St. John, pray for us
