Christian-Catholic or Christian-Other?
« on: August 12, 2010, 12:22:51 PM »
For Orthodox Christians only, please.  :)

A social networking site's member profile page offers a drop-down menu under the heading "Religion."  There is no "Orthodox" option.  The most reasonable alternatives are "Christian-Catholic" or "Christian-Other."  Which would you choose, or would you leave that field blank?

Bonus question: Does such site really need a "Christian-Amish" option?

"Christian-Other", although I would petition the site to add an Orthodox option.
He spoke it as kindly and heartily as could be; as if a man dashed a gallon of cold water in your broth and never doubted you'd like it all the better.

Christian Catholic... would make most sense however in secular countries catholic is synonymous with Pope... so I opt for other

Chrisitan Catholic. Who knows what you'll get with "other."
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Right, could be other than Orthodox, other than Roman...
and now, for something completely different...
