Erykah Badu, apparently (regarding the link: I haven't seen that 'obscene gesture' since I was maybe 7...  8) )

So... it's back?  ???

Rural western Pennsylvanians are well known for their sophistication and sobriety*, so perhaps I just stopped seeing it because of how mature the people around me were.

Many Energies, 3 Persons, 2 Natures, 1 God, 1 Church, 1 Baptism, and 1 Cup. The Son begotten only from the Father, the Spirit proceeding only from the Father, Each glorifying the Other. The Son sends the Spirit, the Spirit Reveals the Son, the Father is seen in the Son. The Spirit spoke through the Prophets and Fathers and does so even today.

Hey, give him a break, that was his first time in the gym post-resurrection, and that's just a warm up set he's doing. Jesus is all about safety. What'd happen if he tore a pec? Then he'd be out of commission for a long time, unless some miracle worker happened to pass by.

In 1965 there was a misperception among Roman Catholics and Orthodox Catholics in regard to the significance of the lifting of anathemas between Patriarch Athenogoras and Pope Paul VI. At around the same time there was a misperception among many young ladies on how to deal with lower rows of library card catalogs in regard to the significance of the simultaneous advent of miniskirts and pantyhose.

Unfortunately my memory of card catalogs precedes that of biro's.

This thread really reflects the variety of personalities here.
One hides amid pornography, angry music, television that shows the worst of mankind, misanthropic politics, an internet populace led by all the passions: and then one asks, "Where is God?"

I wonder why it is called OrthodoxChristianity.net?
