Famous?  I guess that could even include Julian the Apostate.

I just watched videos of Bear Grylls jumping out of airplanes, he does cross himself from right to left... But with his full hand like many Catholics, not with three fingers.

Because he REJECTED Orthodoxy for Paganism.   (I guess you can say he was Orthodox for a short time.)

I have a hard time believing that Serj Tankian is an Orthodox Christian. If he is, his priest should wash his mouth out with soap, based on some of the stuff he sings (e.g. the song Violent Pornography) Wink

I am not sure either; however many sites and rumors say he converted to the Ethiopian Orthodox Church one year before his death like this site:

http://prayerfoundation.org/bob_marley_died_christian.htm

Also, currently his wife Rita, converted and is a deaconess in the Ethiopian Orthodox Church.

I have a book that makes the claim that C. S. Lewis was Mormon in his thinking and writing and I've seen claims that he would have gone to Rome by now. I've read a claim that because he was interested in Greece he would have become EO.  Reading his letters and own words can clearly establish where he was in in Church.  Meanwhile his work is able to speak and reach people in many different Churches.  After becoming a Christian again, he was Anglican to the day he died.  To borrow from him we cannot know what might have been but what was.

Michael Ignatieff, son of diplomat George Ignatieff, public intellectual, Harvard professor, historian/author/novelist and current leader of the Liberal Party of Canada (seriously - he has a daunting resume), is listed as a member of the Russian Orthodox Church. (However he's self-described as not a "church guy".) His grandfather was an adviser to Nicholas II. In the US, the last major presidential contender who was listed as Orthodox was Mike Dukakis.

Troy Polamalu from the Superbowl winning Pittsburgh Steelers is a devout Greek Orthodox Christian. I seen him cross himself no less than 25 times through the game.

Yes.  Troy's name was mentioned in an earlier post...

Probably why they won too. Wink

Um, keep the superstition out of this one.

Sir! You should know that God is a Steelers fan!

Doubt it: Michael is Jewish by birth, born Cheffetz.  His half brother through his father is Jason Chaffetz, a convert to the Mormons and to the Republicans  Shocked: he is in the House of Representatives from Utah.  Michael married someone, but I do not know whom.

Their grandmother (father's mother) went to my cousin's church, but I think she was the last one in that family to be a devout Armenian Orthodox.  The girls' mother is not Armenian, and I don't believe they were raised at all in the Church.

If we judged one another from the way we each live, none of us could call ourselves Orthodox Christians.  I'm not affirming that they (Kardashians) are, but we also don't have much of a moral high ground to stand upon...

Re. REPLY NOS. 112, 113 & 114

Michael Dukakis is a Greek-American and Greek Orthodox.  His father was a medical doctor in Boston and was provided no cost medical services to the students of Holy Cross Seminary in Brookline.  His father made the acquaintance of Archbishop Iakovos, of blessed memory, when he was the presiding priest at the GOAA Boston Cathedral.  Michael Dukakis was baptised and raised in the Orthodox Church.  He married a Jewish women, Kitty.  Due to this marriage, most thought he wasn't in good standing with the Orthodox Church, but during the '88 presidential campaign, Archbishop Iakovos stated that he was in good standing with the Church; by the exercise of Economy, it would seem.

The reference above to his having been an Episcopalian, may be due to confusing him with another Greek-American from Massachusetts, former Congressman Paul Tsongas, who also had sought the presidency.  He had written in a memoir that although he was Greek Orthodox, while living in Washington D.C., his family found a spiritual home in the Episcopal Church.

Admitting to watching "Keeping up...," the Kardashian's make no reference to being members of an organized religion, and they tell quite a bit about their personal feelings about matters.  They allude to their Armenian nationality and culture, somewhat, usually in the context of discussions about their father.  At a wedding for Kloe, the "service " was secular; there was a little Armenian dancing at the reception.

According to the All-Knowing Wiki, Helen Thomas is Orthodox (Lebanese). Which puts her recent comments about Israel in a different light then perhaps a lot of the media is putting it (not to descend into politics).

Her niece is a news anchor and also Orthodox; I see her at one of our local parishes when I visit. That's kind of cool in this heavily-Reformed area.

Also from Adherents, my favorite section: super-heroes grouped by faith.


Black Widow   Fireball   Confessor   Geo-Force   Elektra   Mindsinger   Terra

Unfortunately, we just got two anti-heroines (Elektra and Black Widow) who don't even mention this aspect of their origins and a couple of villains! Elektra even apostated to the ninja religion of the sect known as "The Hand".
Blame the Cold War, I suppose. Smiley

In case you may be wondering, the site claims that Superman's parents on Earth (Johnantan and Marta Kent) were Methodists and he was raised as such. Batman's parent were a mixed marriage between an Episcopalian and a Roman-Catholic and at least while his parents were alive we can suppose he was taken to church with them. Daredevil is Roman Catholic, and Spiderman seems to be a non-denominational Protestant.
