Apologies to All
« on: October 08, 2011, 06:45:22 PM »
I would like to apologize for all my Eastern and Oriental Orthodox Brothers for my many offenses against them in this board. Many times we disagreed, but this does not mean much of what I said or the tone I took is either true or acceptable. My formal apologies. I recant anything which offended you Brothers (unless it is an issue of Dogma such as the existence of the Trinity, or some other similar Dogma, in which case I can do nothing). Please be well.

Peace be with you, brother. I wish you all the best. Keep me in your prayers. :)

You never offended me brother, but I admire your humble and sincere apology.

Again: if I have offended any of you my Brothers in anything, I take back what I said and give my Apologies (unless it was a Dogma of the Church, but even then if my tone was unjustifiably harsh or cruel or negligent may I have rephrased the matter or refrained from speaking on the issue).

If my tone was wrong, may I have allowed somebody with a tone more apropriate than mine to have carried out such discussions on Dogma and doctrine.

Wow.  Pretty quick turnaround from the ACOE to Latin Rite, I see.

Do we have any ACOE posters on here now?
