What's everyone bashing him for? Sure he believed things were stupid and his comments appear odd and silly at times, but he is in the process of coming home. You should remember the parable of the lost coin. This man has repented and is coming to the truth. You should be happy for him and welcome your new brother instead of staying stuck-up and arrogant with this stupid cliche system that is so prevalent in ethnic Orthodox Churches. I'm a Protestant convert and to be honest, maybe it is your rudeness that keeps so many people from converting to Orthodoxy.
