Internet Ignatius:

Skips Vespers to post on OC.net

Condemns zeal of new convert



ooooooooooooooh snap!
I have found Internet Ignatius and Hyperdox Herman are often the same person.

This has been my observation as well.  :-)

Is not lame at all, it's one of the only ones i laughed at. If a husband called me a 'helpmeet' i would have to have a 'week off' (for prayer of course) until they desisted.

But, FP, you're not even Orthodox, let alone Hyperdox. So why sweat about it? Wink laugh laugh

I sweateth not; i should have used a winky.

Condemns New Agers for superstitions

Wears Evil Eye amulet or garlic necklace


I've never been the same since I witnessed a large evil eye placed on the iconostasis of the orthodox church in "greek town" section of Baltimore. With all the more important matters learn to ignore such things.

The garlic necklace is a new concept however. Is this something real?  Perhaps that is a romanian idea? (count dracula etc.)

Did you ever see MY BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING?

They mention quite a few Greek superstitions.

A certain Greek Orthodox Christian (who rarely goes to church and who will not be named) could offer a course on Greek Superstitions 101 as she abides by them all. And she gets so very sensitive if I manage to violate a hidden Greek Taboo. It is beyond ridiculous.

Her little daughters must wear a clove of garlic around their necks whenever someone says they are pretty.
Garlic is so smelly that it is said to chase the demons of vanity and pride away. Wish that were so simple. I would rather wear the Cross around my neck than gag on garlic.

Indeed, some superdox Greek Orthodox Yiayias swear by all these Greek superstitions. As far as they are concerned, they are part of the canons of the Orthodox Church.

Concerning susperstitions, I have not dwelt a great deal on these, as for me they are unimportant. I'll keep in mind the explanation for the garlic if I should ever see that occur.

Concerning Seraphim Rose...and homosexuals who enter monasteries, I do not believe that this is right. Perhaps after years of "reparative therapy". But if this is a disorder that is prevalent in someone, I would say they ought to be left alone as a hermit.

I would acknolwedge one as a saint , however I would not say that they should have been in a monastery.

The last thing we need is a bunch of men living together who are homosexuals.

For monasticism, in latin west, greek east...oriental east, this has been an eternal problem.
Homosexuality is a curse upon the Church, like all the other major sins. When it occurs and men or women are left alone who have it ..it is I feel too common for temptations to occur and they fall. When that happens it leads to greater evils.

Primarily I feel that it allows clergy to be able to be blackmailed into doing bad things.

So I can not accept homosexuality disorder in monasteries. It may always be there somewhere, but it always needs to be sought ought and stamped out, avoided at all costs. The feelings and evidence I have seen and felt of this being wrong I will go to the grave believing in, without my mind being changed. It is a basic obvious dangerous disorder.

Christopher, your beliefs on the matter of homosexuality and monasticism are alien to the Church of Christ.  If you are interested in educating yourself, I recommend the unabridged letters of Sts. Barsanuphius and John.

But they are seemingly, the official position of the contemporary Roman Church, although I really doubt they'll really go on this witch hunt unless they want monasteries totally depopulated (something like 90%).

Being a hermit is not just some sort of alternative to communal living. It certainly is not something that all people who feel the call to flee the world are able to do, and it should not be forced upon anybody.

If men who in the past murdered others could wind up living as cenobitic monastics, so too can men who are same-sex attracted.

Unfortunately, there aren't a lot of American foods that are any good cold, and the Pascha service being as long as it is and ending when it does kind of prevents anything being served warm. That said, a nice hot cheeseburger, preferably from somewhere better than McDonald's, is indeed the highpoint of American (food) culture, and I am in no way ashamed of that. The other high-point of American cultures is, like the Borg, all other cultures are assimilated, so I have no problem putting whatever the local parish tradition is in the basket.

Blessed Nazarius practiced the ascetic life. His clothes were tattered. He wore his shoes without removing them for six years.

The guy kind of looks like Gebre.....

Hey, let's keep this nice.

Gebre is way handsomer than that fine fellow.

lol! Thanks, I think.

I am a Monarchist, and I do have a lot of icons in my prayer corner (although only a couple of them are authentic). I've had my beard since long before I was Orthodox. I love the Jesus Prayer, but I can hardly claim to practice it thoroughly and consistantly. I love the Divine Liturgy, and yet I miss Church way too often. I've read a lot of books about Orthodoxy, but I have yet to cultivate an Orthodox heart. As soon as I get my robe and start wearing it everywhere I go, then I'll put "Hyperdox Herman" to shame.  Wink

LOL! Smiley No worries brother. I deserve a good ribbing. However, I wish I could get you to convince my wife that I'm a handsome fellow.  Wink
