    My guesses are Uniate, Oriental (Coptic), or reunification schismatic.

Hey guys. I'm just going to jump in here and mention that while discussing people's religious affiliations in an intentional community setting is probably kosher here (sorry, couldn't resist), getting into the minutiae of belief is relegated to the religion and spirituality forum in the Cider Press. Let's not cause the moderators any headaches, shall we?

I am most definitely unorthodox, but my cousin married a woman whose family follows the Greek Orthodox tradition. It was wild seeing a naked vertical full-immersion baptism.

How many distinct Orthodox sects are there, and to what extent are they similar, or how do they differ beyond the language used? I have known some Greek and Ukrainian Orthodox believers. They are all Byzantine Right, right? Or am I getting it confused?

-CK

Apologies. I didnt even notice the context was intentional community. I tend to hit recent and just focus on post title. Will be more attentive to forum / subforum. Thanks

    I think that Chris was primarily talking to me, and it was in fact my post that got pulled. Sorry about this. I didn’t see it as a potentially controversial topic.

To keep trolls and flamewars from taking over our forum, we keep discussion of religion to a special forum called Religion and Spirituality. It's a forum that's only open to people with enough apples--this keeps people from joining our forum just to cause division. You're post, Myron, was worded really well and would have been fine in the Cider Press. It sadly was an opening for someone to come along and tell you how wrong they thought they were and make a big debate. We wouldn't want that to happen to your thread!

I think as long as we just keep this thread to making connections, rather than discussing religious doctrines, we should be able to keep it here in Intentional Community. And, once you have enough apples, you can start a thread in Religion and Spirituality if you'd like!

I hope this helps explain things a bit.
