I'm not sure how long he'd been working on it. Certainly zombies and gritty reboots of fairy tales have been around for a while, but they did happen to go mainstream around the same time. Combining them seems like unique enough of a twist I guess. From the excerpt I heard, the dude wasn't a bad writer. He kept things intriguing and never totally lost sight of the premise's absurdity.

Sounds like hell.

Which I guess is quite artistly, performing rather than telling.
Speaking of Hell, I found out a friend of mine from middle school has a bit part in a low-budget zombie movie with elements of political criticism. So if you ever wind up there, you'll probably see it a few times.

Again, like irony, I thought political / social commentary was part and parcel of zombie stuff from day one. The irony showed up on day 2 maybe.

Nope, they attended ours. Our deacon called them as Assyrians but I have no idea whether they were EOs, OOs or Nestorians.

I'd probably attend Nestorian service too if there was any in Finland just out of liturgical curiosity and general interest in Middle Eastern cultures.

There are many in Chicago. I've been to a few. Of all Oriental Churches  I think I like the Assyrians the most. Quite humble too, in my experience. No triumphalism. Also they cross like the Byzantines.

True. On a practical level I honestly think they have a better approach. But the Arab Orthodox are pretty much of the same cloth. Not policing the Communion line.

"Cheap grace" (= communion without confession), most likely...

Quote from: St. Basil's instruction to priests
Don't forget the Master's commandment and that of the holy Apostles. For He says, 'Do not give the holy things to the dogs, and do not cast the pearls before the swine.' See that you do not hand over the Son of God into the hands of unworthy ones. Do not be afraid to stand up to the glorious of the earth, not even him who wears the royal crown at that time. To whom the divine Canons do not allow, do not impart.

Quote
Receive me today, O Son of God, as a partaker of Thy mystical Supper; for I will not speak to Thine enemies of Thy Mystery, nor will I give Thee a kiss as did Judas. But as the thief I confess to Thee: Remember me, O Lord, in Thy Kingdom.

This isn't about manners or judging anybody. Anyone can commune at their own peril if they didn't confess and no questions are asked (though it's the duty of clergy to ask them) - "To their own master, servants stand or fall." The peril being that: "He that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body."

And to answer your question, it's obviously impractical, in the Middle East at least, to keep an exclusive approach. That's why you have practical inter-communion between the various churches there.

What makes it obviously impractical? It is awfully complicated to print some note to the nave which says something like "Only OOs/EOs/Catholics are allowed to partake the Eucharist." (like the RC Cathedral of Helsinki does) or the clergy to announce before pre-communion prayer that Eucharist is reserved only to the Orthodox Christian (like Finnish Orthodox clergy does)?

I imagine it has lots to do with inter-marriage. And the small percentage of Christians there. Also the obvious fact all these churches have similar enough dogmas and rites that the finer differences are just not seen important enough to hold someone from communing.

Are you saying that in the Middle East, RC/EO/OO/others inter-commune?  I've never heard that before.  Not saying it isn't true, just that I've never heard it.  I would think that would overflow to to their dioceses in other areas...

Do they commune protestants as well?

Are you saying that in the Middle East, RC/EO/OO/others inter-commune?  I've never heard that before.  Not saying it isn't true, just that I've never heard it.  I would think that would overflow to to their dioceses in other areas...

Pretty much. There are even official intercommunion agreements between the non-Chalcedonians and Orthodox in Alexandria if I'm not mistaken. If you're against it and say anything about it you're just a no-good wet blanket who needs to get with the times. Ecclesiology changes somehow from the Middle East to everywhere else.

Dude, I want to cast a just middle aged Steven Segal as you cleaning up the ecclesiastical cesspool in the Middle East.

(movie trailer voice) He drew the communion line in the sand and dared the heretics and heterodox to cross it or themselves.

OK, going to go somewhere or to sleep.
