That doesn't answer the question. Which religious groups are you indicating by those three terms?

In your description it states that you are of Oriental Orthodox faith. Therefore it would suit me if you chose the "Orthodox" option. If you feel that that is an incorrect choice, please select "Other".

I was hesitant to do so because I figured you might only have the Chalcedonians in mind by that option.

No, I do not only consider the Chalcedonians by that option, but if you would like to expand on your religious views beyond simply "Orthodox", please feel free to do so:)

There is an option for "other" if "Catholic", "Orthodox", and "Protestant" don't fit the bill.

1. B
2. C - Anti-Chalcedonian Orthodox

4. A - Just about every day recently
5. C
6. C
7. B - Mostly because of people allowing it to negatively impact their view of the Roman church than it should
8. B - Not these particular ones. But I think sex abuse is a regular phenomenon in pretty much any denomination.
9. ...
10. B - Just people being jerks to Romanists about it. It's pretty common.

All religions are compared to the coverup by the Vatican officials.


Btw, our Orthodox parish benefited: a wealthy communicant of the Vatican has given us several donations, the air conditioners for the Church, travel expenses for the priest, etc. "Better that than going to pay off lawsuits for pedophile priests: I know it goes to good use."
