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.
Seeing that your recent time on Muted status has apparently done nothing to teach you how to relate to this forum and to those who post here, you are hereby on Post Moderation for the maximum duration of 99 days with the formal recommendation that you be muted or banned. If you deem this action unfair, please appeal it to me via private message.

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.

Sing the tune.


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.
