Really, some great stuff keeps coming.

Of course the signal to noise ratio changes, but I always get at least one good laugh when I click on this thread and that is more than can be said about some TV comedies or even Hollywood comedies.

I found the "Charles Robert" one funny for personal reasons. My godson was born "Charles Robert"; since he's not hyperdox, he took the name Thomas. Also, my non-Orthodox son-in-law is Charles Robert.

The OOs cross with three fingers and we were separated from the Byzantines 1500 years ago. It is also highly unlikely we were influenced by those few who crossed themselves with two fingers. Thus, the fact that the OO preserve this practice indicates to me that it is an ancient tradition. And even if the two finger practice is the older one, it is not a valid reason to create schism over.

"I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die [...] These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world." -The Lord Jesus Christ
