Apparently there is a church calling itself the "Universal Orthodox Church Diocese of Georgia" (Georgia the U.S. state, not Georgia the country).

http://www.universalorthodox.org/

Reportedly led by a guy named Gregory Karl Davis. Despite the name and the use of Orthodox-looking icons, vestments, and processional crosses, there is clearly something wrong with this group. Their doctrine seems to be way out in the weeds. Or, should I say, in the weed? http://www.universalorthodox.org/Marijuana%20in%20the%20Bible.htm

It gives the phrase "High Church" a whole new meaning, doesn't it?

I'm guessing that Gregory Karl is NOT a member of the North Georgia Orthodox Clergy Brotherhood, but I shall warn my son none the less !  Wink Cheesy

Why do these types have such busy websites. They could use a new graphics designer even if the world is ending soon. Grin Angry

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
