Not being Nestorians and accepting Ephesus I would imagine they do.

Dear Mor,

I've heard that the so-called "Oriental Orthodox" (for as we all know, Orientals only build pagan temples and chinese take out places) use an adopted New Testament that contains portions of the Qu'ran and the Bhagavid Gita.  Please advise.

Sincerely,

I've also heard this. In addition, I've heard that your understanding of Christ just having a divine nature comes from the Hindu legend of Krishna who descended to Earth with a spiritual body, untainted by the material world. Is this true? Thank you.

Dear Mor:

I have heard that OO's have adopted their fast to that of the Mohamadeans and have even forbidden the drinking of the Holy Vodka.

and Is it true that you Indian Orthodox folk use dream catchers in your services?

Thank you,

He must be out today.

This much smack should be able to get some sort of a response.  I'm sure he'll come around in due time.

What has come over our usually thoughtful and serious posters?!?!?
Spring-Fever of monumental proportions?

Meat and milk toxicity?

Gitas and vodka and catchers, Oh MY!

LoL.  I wasn't bored last night, only the night before.  Plus, I had church in the morning (didn't you?), so I regret that I wasn't able to participate in last night's shenanigans.  

For those of you who may be wondering "WTH?", here is a link:

I AM in Punxsutawney and, yes, I was most perplexed at this thread until our "Phil"- not Punxy Phil - "filled" us in.  :D

So Mor, you have to make one thing clear here, had a hard time understanding if you call Mary the Theotokos or not? xD xD xD
