I skimmed some blog entries for 20 minutes, but I'm not sure that I have anything to say...
"The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny--it is the light that guides your way." - Heraclitus

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?
If you will, you can become all flame.

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.  ???
Abbâ Anthony received a revelation in the desert, saying, “In such and such a city there is a man who resembleth thee; he is a physician, and he worketh and giveth whatsoever he earneth to the poor and needy, and each day he, with the angels, ascribeth holiness to God three times a day.”

May the Lord help me to become even a little bit like that guy.

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.
