I never wear jeans to Church, although, I am considering it now since I've progressed beyond the Hyperdox stage. I wore a suit to Pascha, but I also wore a black, heavy but casual jacket as well because it was pretty cold.

It's not a Hyperdox thing to dress formally in a church. I used to dress less formally when I was more Hyperdox than I am now.

EDIT: But on the other hand making a fuss about what to wear to the services IS a Hyperdox thing. Unless of course one happens to be a dandy.
I showed up in church in scandals one Sunday with kahki shorts and my priest asked me to not dress that way at church. What I think is immaterial. If my (or your) priest asks you not to dress a certian way, respect his wishes.

note, If my priest is hyperdox, then Im a bucket.

PP

I think he's talking about people who give you ugly glares when you don't wear a silk tie and an expensive looking suit every Sunday, not when your priest tells you to wear something above. Personally, I think it is much more important to dress in clothes that I can survive wearing in a crowded, stuffy building for 1.5-2 hours while standing and pay attention. Dress soberly, but I'd much rather be able to be attentive to the service and wearing a nice, short-sleeved collared shirt than in a black hole of misery because it is blazing hot and everyone is required to wear heavy formalwear.

Hyperox Herman:

+Goes to Confession and confesses his sins.

+Privately fasts and prays in repentance of his sins.

+Dares to think that he may be on the right track since he is repenting.

+Realizes that to even be aware of his own repentance is prideful.

+Confesses and repents of his pride.

+Feels guilty because he feels good about his confession and repentance of pride, which is itself prideful.

+Becomes completely discouraged and gives up.

+Is now an atheist and is greatly indebted to this thread!

I walk to school. Part of my route includes cutting across the campus of a presbyterian church. They don't seem to mind this, as there is actually a sand trail that has been set up part of the way. They also provide, as a courtesy, a garbage can with the church's name on it along the trail. I frequently use this garbage can to throw away drinks, snack wrappers, etc.

So, my questions is: in the eyes of Hyperdox Herman, how many heresies have I committed? Is outrage?

...yes, but the problem is the defining of what  'should' do really means, isn't it?

Sometimes, what one decides is a 'should do' is just a tasty item picked up by cradle or convert from that wonderful salad bar which is the diversity of Orthodox local tradition.

Discerning this and not being critical of your brother or sister is what keeps one from being Hyperdox !

Anyway, they do seem to be recognized by Rome as separate from the UGCC. But then I dont understand why they participate in the UGCC's conference of bshops. Shouldn't they withdraw to point out their independence?

They are present as observers/guests, not as members of the conference. If you check the UGCC website, it's usually better now in noting their presence as such. (There was a period when it listed them as if they belonged.) In addition to what David said, I think part of it is just the idea of having a place in which they can collegially interact with other Byzantine Catholics.

You may think that's because it's the way people in Romania die eggs, but Herman knows it's because paint is a godless Latinization.

On an aside, I really like the color the onion skins make.
