It's where I pay the church tax.
I like the new pope more and more. First castigating capitalism, then making overtures to atheists. Not that bad. Plus it's also good he really irks those people that care about lace cottas. Not that i care, but most of them deserved to be annoyed.
Why does your faith status say Romanian Orthodox?
You have to pay a church tax to go to heaven?
Heaven? That's "pie-in-the-sky" silliness for gullible fools.
Thanks. I was going to point that out earlier in the thread, but people think I am just hung up on words. And such things don't matter.
This ^ , obviously.
And then what Romaios said about baptisms and marriages and funerals.
You certainly didn't understand Romaios. Whose American usage is clearer than mine although it is his 6th language or something.
And certainly didn't understand me.
You would do well to read more of what people write before judging them.
Me, I could see having a problem with, but Romaios, is like walking polyglot encyclopedia of lotsa stuff, one of which is Orthodox.
There are more than a few of those around here. Thankfully, they won't care much what people say about them, cause in addition to knowing stuff they are good Christians as well.
And I don't Romaios fall into some atheist supporting, gay supporting, [fill in a group you don't like] supporting, guy.
He seems rather caring and very committed to the Church's teachings.
Sorry, but I like the guy a lot and don't want him tossed in with my lot. He deserves better.
