10 Signs Your Bishop is a "Vagante"

Ten warning signs your "bishop" might not be a real one:

10. He refers to himself as Metropolitan Archbishop (of course, it would be better to add something like Catholicos to the mix as well, but one's creative powers must needs be directed elsewhere--such as web design and a clever cover-up operation)...

That is the title the Antiochian Archbishop of Australia uses:

It's very confusing here (and the US) because Antiochian and Slavic Churches, a Metropolitan outranks an Archbishop, but in Greek tradition, an Archbishop outranks a Metropolitan- and you can't be both.
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.
