Yeah, certainly a lot of it is. The weird Maronite-esque chant from the guy at the beginning and during communion, for instance. Sadly, what I've seen of the much less debased mass of the Franciscans in Egypt, while being much less obviously offensive (I chose the particular video I did on purpose to show the extreme to which the idea behind the Eastern or Oriental Unia does not work, not because everywhere is just as bad as Lebanon; God forbid) was not really any better
, unless you take "better" in this case to mean "they used the cymbals a bit more" (which, yes, to my ears does
sound better, but I digress...
). The celebrant still faced the people, they still used unleavened bread, etc. By all the evidence that I have seen (videos from Lebanon, Egypt, and Italy), communion is by intinction, which is also not Coptic Orthodox practice. I am curious as to how the Coptic Catholics might preserve the fraction prayers (if they do; I don't remember them in either of the longer videos I've seen) that are common to the Orthodox from whom they came, if it is common to use unleavened bread. Such bread can't really be divided as you would leavened bread.
Anyway, the point is not to pick on the Coptic Catholics in particular (Lord knows they don't need more trouble), but to point out - in connection with my earlier post - that the Orthodoxy of the church is inseparable from its ecclesiology. The only reason the Catholic Unia have any of these distinctives that aren't shared with the churches that they left is that these are the "Catholic" practices. So in a way, it is right that they should have them...but in another way, it really kind of shoots the whole "Orthodox in union with Rome" thing in the foot, as well as the "same thing" idea or "closer to us" idea, since of course it also isn't only about externals, but the theological reasons why we've developed as we have. Anything inherited from post-Orthodox Rome makes the resulting churches, even if they're 99.9% the same, not Orthodox. It's not really a matter of degree, as far as I can tell from talking to OO and EO of many different stripes. You either are or you aren't, and for every Orthodox person I've ever known, Eastern Catholics are in the "are not" category not any less than their Latin counterparts.
