I skimmed some blog entries for 20 minutes, but I'm not sure that I have anything to say...

This is supposed to be newsworthy?  Good for him!  That's all I can think of.

The most important point is when he writes, "I will not be a pew-warmer..."  If he goes to the right parish, he won't have to worry about that.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Once Christ has filled the Cross, it can never be empty again.

Has he publicly renounced his very specific arguments against the Orthodox Church?

He was blogging on MonkRock for a while, and he claimed to be Orthodox at that time, but now all his writings have been erased from there.  ???
Quote from: Nun M.
The dread Pantocrator...is also "Christouli mou", (my little Christ), who really listens when you run in to your neighborhood church on the way to work to cry and light a candle because your daughter is in trouble at school. The untouchable and all-holy Mother of God is also "Panayitsa mou", who really will take your part before the court of heaven because, just like your own mom, she’ll always stick up for her children, no matter how badly they’ve behaved.

I don't know. I had read some of his stuff before when I was in between Catholicism and Orthodoxy myself. I wasn't sure if anyone on here had heard of him, I just thought his reasons were interesting.

Not specifically, but you could take certain passages from the post I linked to in that context.
