    I don't know... I know he was raised Catholic -but I wasn't aware he became Orthodox.

    In any case, the Orthodox are Catholic too IMO, just minus the pope. ;)

    Yeah, says right on his Wikipedia page.

    And with a much cooler Liturgy, and more old-school theology. ;)
    Also "The Orthodox are Catholic too IMO, just minus the Pope" Bruh I expect this from Protestants, not from Catholics :brokenheart:

    It's best for me to respond to that by using myself as an example.

    After being away from Christianity for 20+ years, last fall I decided to try and return to Catholicism, but I needed to get the permission from our priest. I told him about my background (science-- anthropology), and that because of this I would always question things. But then I added that would I could do with a clear conscience is to commit myself to the Church and to doing the best that I can to help people. With that, he welcomed me back into the Church.

    There's an old saying that goes like this: "If two people completely agree on everything, then only one of them is actually doing the thinking". A former priest at our church said much the same several decades ago when we were in conversation, namely that to question things is normal and good, but only to a point.

    So, I don't see such questioning as being intrinsically negative, however it could be negative if it stops a person from making any moral commitment.

    What do you think? And thanks for the compliment, btw.

    William of Ockham.
    From Wiki:
    "...an English Franciscan friar, scholastic philosopher, and theologian, who is believed to have been born in Ockham, a small village in Surrey.[9] He is considered to be one of the major figures of medieval thought and was at the centre of the major intellectual and political controversies of the 14th century. He is commonly known for Occam's razor, the methodological principle that bears his name, and also produced significant works on logic, physics, and theology. In the Church of England, his day of commemoration is 10 April.[10]"

    Even better, a Catholic Englishman. ;)
