Ohhhhhh!  That's it! The end must be near.

I am rated as a Russky.   ::)

It says:

You can't wait until the return of the Romanov monarchy, and you celebrate Victory Day every year. Your festival is ok, but you don't take it nearly as seriously as your Greek brothers. Your motto is: "The Greeks invented it, but the Russians perfected it." Stay out of Estonia and the Ukraine, Constantinople! You get a little weepy every time you hear the end of Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture. Also, you love vodka.

....Man.  They even say THE Ukraine.

I am humiliated!

With all due respect to my Russian brothers and sisters in Christ....Other than loving the 1812 Overture - none of it fits me.  Facebook needs a better test.

I am Greek. But I cheated. I mean, I made choices that seemed second best compared to the ones that I would REALLY make - the ones that were not in the quiz; AND I made sure that my choices had nothing to do with anything Russian, just so that I would not end up "Russian."

The quiz is as dumb as all other I saw on FB so far. :)

Serbian, apparently... I had to lie on the Lent question, they didn't have any of the Fathers I read listed, and no category for "none of the above".

SERBIAN!?!

Quote
You are sick of the squabbles between the Greeks and Russians. The Greeks are too lax and the Russians are too militaristic. The Greeks have 1453, the Russians have 1917, and you have 1389. "Festivals? Yeah, we have those when we're not being exterminated by Croatians and Albanians, or being betrayed by the UN." Your parish IS named after St. Sava, hands down, and you can trace your ancestry by which slava your family celebrates. LOOK IT! KOSOVO IS SERBIA!!!


Well, this is a revelation.  :o I may agree somewhat with the first part, but the second part couldn't be farther from the truth. My parish is NOT named after St. Sava, I celebrate no slava and while I do love Serbs, I have no interest in the politics and complex internecine relationships between those various Balkan countries-too exhausting-must preserve my strength for more immediate concerns...

Retried the quiz a few times giving the exact same answers for four of the questions, and changing around the Lenten reading.  Apparently, it's all in the author you read for Lent!  Kinda makes me wonder what answer I would have gotten for my real Lenten reading: the Life of Anthony, St Cyril of Jerusalem's Cathechetical Lectures, and Chrysostom's Biblical Commentaries....

I rank amongst the proud and few 20-somethings without a Facebook account.   :P

Ditto. My life is just fine without the hassle of social networking sites.

I'm most certainly not a 20-something, but I agree. I know enough people.

I took the Orthodox etnicity quiz, and....

"What Orthodox ethnicity are you?

Serbian

You are sick of the squabbles between the Greeks and Russians. The Greeks are too lax and the Russians are too militaristic. The Greeks have 1453, the Russians have 1917, and you have 1389.

No big surprise there as I have Serbian ancestry! As much as I love my ethnic heritage, the faith always comes first. It was the Orthodox faith that shaped the culture and customs!

I like that you have a keen interest in maintaining a social media presence that is conducive to the sharing of thoughts and ideas pertaining to Christianity. 
How can you be so incarnationally constipated?

Can we have one thread where it doesn't devolve into how many people are hot for Mor?

The term planet earth is an innovation which has arisen in recent centuries with the error of heliocentrism.

If one wants to confess a pure doctrine of Orthodoxy, they should be careful not to refer to the earth as a planet, unlike the current Pope as well as Patriarch Kirill and Patriarch Bartholomew, who regularly speak in error when they refer to our planet earth.
