Your "spiritual father"? But Joe, you're not Orthodox.
I'm going to take a wild stab in the darkness of the super-correct night and guess that you're allowed to post on the other forum because your "spiritual father"(?) might be posting there as well? And if you're "banned" from posting here why did you post telling us that you're banned? It fits in so perfectly... it's just simple misguided extremism. Everything is a production, everything is about the fireworks and the "show". Church life, your arrogant "declaration" of departure, your switch from fanatical traditional Catholic to radical "Orthodox" then back to fanatic Catholic and to "true" Orthodoxy again.
There's no intelligent conversation here? Come on...
Maybe you should have tried actually engaging in a conversation before abondoning the board. Instead we got to see pre-programmed, uninformed one liners. It's sad...very sad. This forum(or it seems to me) is comprised of people who are willing to really address questions of the Church and spiritual life. There are a multitude of opinions here- sometimes these opinions clash, and sometimes there is agreement. Either way, it's a dialogue- not just a one sided security blanket of a forum that reinforces how "right" we are. Of course, fellowship of like minded Orthodox Christians is an amazing thing, but personally, I'm sometimes thankful when my ideas are challenged- it's an opportunity for growth- it's an opportunity for the sharing of ideas and a working towards the Truth.
I'm sorry Joe that the intelligence level here isn't up to your standards. I'm sorry that a pathological need for security in being "right" isn't met here. But mostly, I'm sorry that the words of Fr. Seraphim Rose and through him the entire tradition of Orthodoxy's Royal and tempered Path, did not touch your soul.
