As a brief preface for those who haven't seen my introduction thread, my family is RCC but my parents had a laissez-faire towards my religious upbringing. So, my attending an EO church is no big deal to them.

A few weeks ago I mentioned that we were attending a Greek Orthodox lately and he asks (with genuine curiosity), "oh, do they spit on the children?" I think My Big Fat Greek Wedding is the extent of his Hellenistic exposure.  Cheesy

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
