How's that for humility?

Looking at Orthodoxy, I would say the religion is about being ignorant and apathetic to what is happening in the world, beating yourself up and not becoming particurarily good at anything.

Okay... thank you for the information, but what are you going to do with it?
Do not be cast down over the struggle - the Lord loves a brave warrior. The Lord loves the soul that is valiant.

I'm thinking Orthodoxy is the religion of form and denial of power. Of course, Catholicism fits that description as well. We don't have to say they are different. I have different feelings regarding the Orthodox Church, but I am none the less not impressed.

No need to display such anger.  You are not oppressed.  If you disagree with the Orthodox Church, that's ok; however, disparaging comments reveal more than you realize.
