By the wayside, I see that the Antiochians actually baptized you. Does this mean that prior to Orthodoxy you were not Christian?
Yes. I became a Christian and searched for a church. I was never a Protestant or Catholic or "non-denominational church attender" of any sort.  Wink

Good. With leftists like him, the more the merrier.

Nope. Now that I'm Orthodox, I have to change my facebook's "political views" box to read "Christian Monarchy--- restoration of Basilev/Tsar [it's Constantinople, not Istanbul]".

That's because you're a Holy Fool. You serve the God-Appointed Emperor by pointing out his extremely few errors and excesses. You are the schizophrenic backbone of Justinian's symphonia.

Your first task as Holy Fool is to dress in sackcloth and ashes, and beat your breast in front of your local courthouse or capitol building. You may cease as soon as the president resigns and an Orthodox leader replaces him, thus putting an end to the Time of Troubles.

I just asked my priest what it would take to become Orthodox and he said, "$100."*
