I don't have the book in front of me, so I can't give quotes, but Met. Hierotheos Vlachos, in Entering the Orthodox Church, states that catechumens were considered Christians in the ancient church and so should be considered as such today. And it follows that if they can be called Christian then they can also be called Orthodox.

Exactly. Everyone else is just giving their own personal opinion.  police
