[The implication is not on truth but on the fact that he has not given up is Catholicity he has just reverted to a more ancient forum. That is the whole point of the post.]
Right, but that's not the implication I got from reading the post. You pitted Roman Catholics against Orthodox based on their views of a Roman Catholic who has rejected Roman teachings.
[If a Roman Catholic rejects Roman teaching, the Roman Church views him as a heretic.
If an Orthodox Catholic rejects Orthodox teaching, the Orthodox Church views him as a heretic.]
We are not discussing who is or who isn't a heretic here. We are discussing who is or who isn't a Catholic.
I don't understand your response at all Anastasios.
I'm sorry, but I totally don't understand your post then.
[In my opinion, and the opinion of most Orthodox Catholics I know, there is Anastasios.]
Right, there is a difference, Orthodoc, but we are talking about the conclusion reached from your analogy, not about whether in general there is a difference.
[What I said was -
If we are, for the sake of being PC going to use either RC terminology or western standards..... than this is not the Orthodox Catholic web site it claims to be. It's as simple as that.
Where do I say I being forced to do anything? I will continue to identify myself by what I am...an Orthodox Catholic. Other Catholics will be either 'Roman' or Eastern'.
The implication is that you WILL be forced to use the terms, and that by so doing, this board will not be Orthodox. I am saying no one is going to be compelled to use any term they don't want to, but that will have to defend their use or non use of whatever term they employ.
Sorry Orthodoc if we are talking past each other. I just got very confused with the analogy.
