What kind of punishment are we talking about here?

As for stone age barbarians, I suspect Catholic-Orthodox intermarriage was a problem that didn't concern them much.

Sounds like the parents should just convert to the Indian Orthodox Church.   :)

It looks like your hardliner brand of Non-Chaledonianism has once again proved to be nonexistent among the typical Oriental faithful.

Oh, and the second choice on the poll is fantastic.

I've never suggested otherwise. I think I have actually acknowledged a number of times on here that the typical OO believer is a doctrinal deviant.

Also, with what percent of EO acknowledge that the Roman church is not Apostolic, I wasn't aware that this qualified as a "hard-liner" opinion.  ::)

Are you sure thts the case?

We have an agreement with the Catholic church on weddings.it should be okay. I know many Orthodox guys who have married catholic gals and all r well. ;D

ps. But then Syrian Catholics didnt encourage marriage even with Latin catholics:) So even if such happens, it should come of no surprise..

The MOSC recognizes marriages in Romanist churches as truly the Sacred Mystery of Matrimony? How awful.  :'(

Yes! Most Coptic Bishops will tell you explicitly that the Romanists don't even have any Baptism, let alone Matrimony.

I'm going to have to agree with the non-Chalcedonian hard-liner: The Roman Church has severed its ties with the Apostles through schism and heresy.

None of the Coptic bishops I've met have ever said anything of the sort.

The Church does not judge the orders and sacraments of other groups. The insistance of baptising converts from Catholicism is not in any way a statement that Catholics are unbaptised, rather it is not assuming anything one way or the other. H.H. certainly receives Catholics as Christian brothers, as does every bishop I've ever heard of or encountered. In fact, Coptic Catholic converts are not rebaptised, since their baptism is by immersion, so clearly this indicates an acceptance of Catholic sacraments (how could the Coptic Catholics have valid baptism if the Roman Catholics they received their orders from were unbaptised), and merely an insistence on following the proper rites. Some Coptic clergy have even go so far as to say that there is no theological reason to rebaptise, that it is a wrong thing that stems from political motives from a period when Catholics would rebaptise converts from Coptic Orthodoxy.

What Jonathan says is in accord with the practice of the Coptic Orthodox mission in Warsaw, Poland -- led, AFAIK, by a bishop* -- where RC women, wives of Coptic Orthodox men, are allowed to commune. Would the bishop allow unbaptised people to receive the Eucharist?

While I believe there is sufficient clear evidence that the Coptic Orthodox Church does not consider the sacraments of the Roman Catholic Church to be graceless, does not consider RC's to be unbaptised, etc., I think it is also very clear that we are not in communion, and a practice of communing Roman Catholics who have not left the RC church and entered the Orthodox Church, is certainly not the norm, or representative of the practice of the Church.

I'm sure they were two years ago. Since then it might have stopped. Maybe due to gas prices.
