Is Scott Brown or his family Orthodox?
« on: January 20, 2010, 06:19:53 PM »
Can anyone tell me if the new Massachusetts senator, Scott Brown or his family are Orthodox?  The reason I ask is because I saw his family at his acceptance speech last night and they looked very Greek/Albanian.  Now, knowing that there are tons of Greeks and more then a few Albanians in MA made me wonder if these people were too.

Also, one of Brown's daughters was named "Ariana" which is a Greek name (Ariana Huffington and so on).

Men may dislike truth, men may find truth offensive and inconvenient, men may persecute the truth, subvert it, try by law to suppress it. But to maintain that men have the final power over truth is blasphemy, and the last delusion. Truth lives forever, men do not.

According to Wikipedia, he belongs to the Christian Reformed Church of North America.

Brown and his family worship at New England Chapel in Franklin, a member of the Christian Reformed Church in North America. They also have a relationship with an order of Cistercian Roman Catholic nuns at Mt. St. Mary’s Abbey in Wrentham. The Brown family has raised over $5 million for the order, helping to install solar panels, a wind turbine and a candy manufacturing plant that the order operates. Sister Katie McNamara has said of the family, "[w]e pray for them every day".
