Ebor, FWIW, I do indeed see a lot that is good in the Anglican heritage. I possibly would have never become Orthodox had I not been Anglican first, and I definitely still would not still be a Christian had I not been introduced in my childhood to a specific Anglican who appears in the next sentence. I still enjoy reading Hooker and C.S. Lewis, and I have found that great tradition of Anglican fudge to be the best approach to the Old/New Calendar discussions within Orthodoxy. If I ever seem grumpy over the latest news from tEC it is because I know the good in Anglicanism and am saddened by the harm that has been done within the past decade (I do, of course, wish those who have stayed all the best, and my prayers are with the Diocese of South Carolina during their current troubles with the lowerarchy).
That said, I ask you to not take too much offense at the turns the conversation has taken in this thread. You yourself said you feel like a target to be "bagged", which I think is what Tikhon(sequence of numbers) wishes to avoid by not having a Western Rite (indeed, his association of Western Rite with a certain "U" word would indicate this). Too, there is a great amount of suspicion toward anything that has had anything to do with the Latin church since the schism, and then the BCP is not only a post-schism Latin Rite, but a Protestant one to boot! I certainly can't say that Cranmer's Rite is superior in any way to St John Chrysostom's, save that I wish Cranmer were still around to do a proper translation of the Byzantine Liturgy. I also cannot say that, from an Orthodox perspective, there is nothing problematic about the Book of Common Prayer as it exists now. There are too many Low Church Protestant phrasings that emphasize the idea of prayer to the Father in the name of Jesus, too few prayers that include the Holy Spirit in His proper place, to suit Orthodox theology.
I am also too new to Orthodoxy myself to speak of the suitability of the Rite of St Tikhon, save to say that I trust our bishops in their decision to allow it, and the mind of the Church to decide as to it's acceptability in the long term. I personally believe that Orthodoxy can "baptize" anything, and if it can baptize things from pagan sources, all the more reason it should chrismate those things from sources that aren't all that far off from Orthodoxy to begin with (unless that makes you feel targeted, in which case I say bad, bad rite. Oh, dear, fudge is a hard habit to quit).
