Care to explain what an Orthodox (Western Reformed) is?

Was just curious, is it a Calvinistic Orthodox?

Oh No No No!

It is a mix of Orthodox without the "Mary Worship" and "created over the top Traditions" and Hi-Church Traditional Anglicanism.

In other words, a false religion of your own choosing? ;)

Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.

Tom,

As long as you're fielding questions, what's that avatar about?  I can't tell what it is.  :P

I don't know - it is on my Church's web site. Just looked different.

It is titled "Sophia Symbol" Not sure if the web developer created it or what.

Dude, just in general, haven't we been through the Mary worship thing like a billion times? How much does it take before one accepts that we don't worship her? I mean, its ok that you have some issues with the Church that you try to work out. But making up a name of a sect for just  yourself when you are actually a bonified member of the Orthodox Church, cut and dry, because you think we're worshipping Mary? You don't beome a member of the Church hoping to reform it. It reforms you. In all due respect, why don't you believe all that it teaches if you decided to become a believer?
