I just had to...Agabus reminded me of a conversation I overheard during last Pascha.

Cradle Christopher:
Sings "Christos Anesti" louder than anyone in the church on Pascha.
Has no idea what he's actually singing.

-Hyperdox Herman-

Accuses Protestants of citing strange, out-of-context Bible passages to support nonsense and heresy

...Misquotes and wrongly applies ancient, obscure Canon laws to support hyperdoxy

-Cradle Christopher-

Constantly scolds new converts/catechumens about etiquette and manners during Liturgy

...Does this while sitting down behind them the entire time

Being a bit serious here, but am I the only one who notices that many of the 'Cradle Christophers' seem to be harder on the converts, thus possibly contributing to why many of them become 'Hyperdox Hermans'? Like, for example, I'm a convert and I know a couple of converts, and it seems like most of the cradle Orthodox seem to be really hard on us at times, and the ironic thing is that they do not even do half of the stuff they scold us for doing improperly/not doing! I'm not offended by this at all, but I do find it strange. Is it just sort of like an 'initiation ritual' joke, little t tradition that the more experienced Orthodox to do test our dedication or make sure we're committed or something?

No offense, James, but Michal Kalina already made the Cradle Christopher cigarette joke fairly early in this thread- except he had it as early as the homily going long!

I think both memes are coming to an end- we're starting to repeat ourselves here.

meh, as long as it's outside the parish, whatever. Now, if they start projecting on the back of the priest's newly white robe, we got problems.

In my experience, everyone goes through this at some degree.  When I first converted, as many of you know, I was super-hyperdox.  Now, I see how silly it was of me to be so serious about such little things (like crossing myself at the right times, or consulting by Spiritual Father before I took my next breath, etc.)

It's sort of like the bully at recess.  Since I like to think I've gotten past hyperdoxy, I recognize the same things in others, and take pleasure in pointing it out (not to their faces).  I only converted 3 years ago, I can't imagine how this must be for cradles.

Calls you a lightweight when you don't drink 40 shots of plumb brandy on the feast day of the 40 martyrs

So, when is the Feast of the 40 Martyrs again...

Being a bit serious here, but am I the only one who notices that many of the 'Cradle Christophers' seem to be harder on the converts, thus possibly contributing to why many of them become 'Hyperdox Hermans'? Like, for example, I'm a convert and I know a couple of converts, and it seems like most of the cradle Orthodox seem to be really hard on us at times, and the ironic thing is that they do not even do half of the stuff they scold us for doing improperly/not doing! I'm not offended by this at all, but I do find it strange. Is it just sort of like an 'initiation ritual' joke, little t tradition that the more experienced Orthodox to do test our dedication or make sure we're committed or something?

I think you are right - for whatever reason, and it may stem from our 'ethnic ghetto' mentality and our preoccupation with property rights in American Orthodoxy, for many cradles are  often overly hard on converts.

I know my dad would be exasperated with otherwise good parishioners who would be - for lack of a better word- outright mean to inquirers or even folks who moved into town who were already Orthodox.

I do think, at least from my home parish, that we have gotten better about this as time as passed. This weekend our pastor christmated and/or baptised eight people, six of whom were simply from the neighborhood and over the years had started coming to liturgy. They were welcomed and years ago would have been shunned. So take heart and hang in there! Stereotypes are helpful learning tools but they can also be an excuse to prevent true growth. Christ is Risen!

In all fairness though, i think the cigarette jokes have been smoked all the way to the filter (i.e. we need more drinking jokes) Cheesy

Since I'm too lazy (or drunk, happy Pascha!) to make one-

Probably going to get flamed like heck for this, but I like the idea of a female Cradle Christopher; let's call her Cradle Christina.

-Cradle Christina-

Priest says dress modestly for Church

...All this tight spandex should cover me! Smiley

-Cradle Christina-

Complains that standing up for the Pascha service is too hard

...Is wearing six-inch spike heels

-Cradle Christina-

Pffh, no headcovering?! That woman over there has no class!

...Wears short black dress and hoop earrings to match headcovering

-Cradle Christina-

What a tramp, that girl's bra strap is showing!

...Good thing I'm not wearing one
