Hyperdox:
-Mocks Protestant witnessing techniques
-Never misses an opportunity to talk about his “journey to Orthodoxy.”

Happydox:
-Reads “The Soul After Death.”
-Thinks it makes some good points, but doesn’t become drooling Toll-House fanatic.



ive never met a drooling toll-house fanatic, but ive sure met plenty of drooling anti-toll-house fanatics. they seem to be the ones who care so much ....

Likewise.
Maybe I've just been unfortunate.

Like many things related to Hyperdox Herman, that particular example only seems to exist on the Internet.

And drooling, like many things in life, is often difficult to discern when coming from one's own mouth!  Wink Wink

The drooling, like the toll-houses, are metaphorical.

i know a few romanies, i suppose i should preach more...

Across central Europe in the lands of the old Hapsburg empire, many Roma were Greek Catholics, some were Orthodox - from what my grandfather would tell us the distinction wasn't really all that important among them...of course he didn't like Roma like most of his fellow countrymen! I remember when the late Met. Nicholas was pastor of St. Nicholas Orthodox Church in lower Manhattan and he would frequently be called upon for graveside prayers for the more Orthodox inclined of the Roma...many are buried in a large cemetery in Linden, NJ where the three bar crosses dominate what was called the 'Gypsy' section....

The Orthodox eparchy of Presov, Slovakia has supported a mission for the abandoned and neglected children of the Roma for many years at its Children's home in Medzilaborce.

I know some, both in Romania and here, though most of them seem to be in one of the Protestant sects (or 'pocaiti' as they are generally referred to in Bucovina) such as the Pentecostals etc. Not sure NicholasMyra's joke about (I presume) historic enslavement of gypsies in Romania is in particularly good taste.

If you say so. Personally I don't think it's possible for jokes about slavery to be in good taste - ranks up there with holocaust jokes really- but whatever floats your boat.

If I recall correctly there is a forward by Fr. Damascene and also one by a Protestant. It is the latter I was referring to.

It's okay, it's not about me. That's my problem with this meme, it mocks people. Whether or not these people should be doing things, mocking them does nothing but turn people away from Orthodoxy.

I have a sense of humour, I just think this keeps people from coming to the Church (or leaving if they are struggling with such issues).

I agree.  There is no need to mock anybody.   Some passionate Orthodox could really be offended.

The original intent was to mock ourselves in a friendly way, or to post things so outlandish that nobody would actually adhere to it.

If it strays into cruel things, then it's gotten off track.
