The Onion Dome - April Site of the Month
« on: April 02, 2003, 02:30:10 AM »




When you're weary of grim lenten cuisine and tell yourself if you chant that same psalm one more time you'll lose your mind, take a minute and relax at The Onion Dome.  There you will find wonderful parody newsarticles that poke a bit of fun at our more eclectic practices while remaining rooted in the faith.  Here are a few of my favorites:

Catechuman Departs (May 21, 2003)

Orthodox Priest Admits Weeping Statue "Pretty Cool" (Sept 6, 2002)

Greek Scientists Discover Ninth Tone (Feb 28, 2003)

If you haven't visited the Dome, we at OrthodoxChristianity.net highly reccomend the site.  Come for the laughs, stay for the Fr. Vasily fan club.  And the best part is that the webmaster, Rdr. Alexis Riggle, is a member of our forum.

Congratulations to www.theoniondome.com for winning the OC.net Site of the Month for April!

Now that's pretty entertaining, if you ask me.

Why doesn't "The Onion Dome" still appear on our forum's welcome plate as April's site of the month?  Last time I looked at the calendar, it was still April!

That site is great, it's how I found this forum, because OC.net is the Onion Dome's April Site of the Month too. I wish someone with a good sense of humor would write some parodies about Greek and Antiochian Churches, though a lot of the quirks are the same.
