I browsed CAF the other day and I saw some discussions that Eastern Orthodox Christians were joining in and it seemed to remain civil. That is a good sign.
Actually, it was because some of the EOs were very rude guests.
We need a Orthodox Moderator On catholic Answers Forum ..Because the Catholic mods Are Banning the orthodox Posters....That's because the Orthodox were causing trouble, gaining converts and such.
I resent the implication that activity on a particular forum on the internet is a reflection on Orthodoxy and relations between the Eastern Orthodox, Oriental Orthodox, and Roman Catholic Churches as a whole.
As a person who has participated in a joint prayer service between the Greek Orthodox Cathedral and Roman Catholic Cathedral in Atlanta, GA, I don't appreciate the sentiment that ALL Orthodox Christians are hostile towards the Church of Rome. This is simply not true.
While there are individuals on this forum who have stated less than loving sentiments towards our Catholic friends, that is not indicative of how all of us feel. As anyone who has spent any time on any internet forums should know, the participants of the forum are not necessarily reflecting the views of the larger population. If one was to actually GO to an Orthodox parish and survey the parishioners, you would find that most do NOT harbor ill feelings towards the Catholic Church, and actually do hope and pray for a reunification at some point.
I know you may find this hard to believe Wyatt
, but most of us do not spend our time making snarky comments about the Catholic Church. Rather, most of us are spending our time trying to work out our salvation with fear and trembling. Furthermore, as far as apologetics go, whenever I am explaining my Orthodox faith to those unfamiliar with the Church, I usually spend the first half of the discussion defending Catholicism, and the second half of the discussion explaining how Orthodoxy is different from Catholicism. So rather than persecuting the Catholic Church, quite often you will find Orthodox Christians as one of her great defenders.
I am sorry that you have been offended by the actions of a few, but please realize that a few bad apples don't spoil the whole bunch.
