There are some interesting comments on terms in this thread..http://www.orthodoxchristianity.net/forum/index.php/topic,2422.15
I found it while googling for something entirely different. Interestingly enough I seem to have just joined OCnet at this time in 2003, and Linus7 says he is glad of my contributions (that shows that the post was from a very, very long time ago, before the great Chalcedon Wars of 2004. Where is Linus7 now?)
I wish Linus stuck around, I would have loved to have had some fun with him.
I am incredibly insulted, however, that he referred to HH Pope Shenouda as "Coptic Pope Shenouda". Do you hear me calling Pat. Theodorus II "Melkite Patriach Theodore II"?
*Shrugs his shoulders* But then again, that *is* the traditional language of our/the Church.
And I am very frustrated that he completely ignored all of the information and research that you brought to the various discussions you had with him. It's very sad some people ignore the facts simply to vindicate their confessional prejudices.
Why am I resurrecting this thread just to say this, some might ask? Well, I just had to get my feelings out there.
