Why are 100 a major deal? Might as well make a thread about the UFOists or Slavic Protestants by Fort Ross
Oh, only 100? Right. Who cares? Wasn't there some parable about how if you're missing, like, 100 sheep, it's negligible... Don't go looking for them. Definitely don't go looking if it were only one.
Yeah but they didn't get lost or die, they just left communion. You're exaggerating the situation. I'm sure they have their own views and arguments and can be persuaded back.
Stop, before you embarrass yourself further.
Careful, zz, you'll make him start stutter typing and creeping everyone out again.

What's wrong with Empress Irene? Do you think a female Roman Emperor is so repulsive? What are you, Charlemagne?

No really, I'm looking at the article to refresh my memory but I don't see what happened that makes Irene so bad.Was it because she indirectly led to the Schism?

But that post was clearly a joke. Where's the offense in that? Was it the fact she's a woman or she partially ledto the Schism or what? Animedoxy isn't even a thing.

This thread is supposed to be about a tragic schism and its ecclesiological and canonical consequences. Take whatever tangential nonsense you are all spewing elsewhere, please.

I would recommend removing the shadow effect.  It only serves to make the text difficult to read.

Well, pre-1994 status, and Fr. Peter can correct me if I'm wrong, is when the BOC was in no communion with any Church, OO or EO.  As Fr. Peter alluded, this is the status they chose, and this means they are essentially in schism.  The reason we are confused is perhaps this is, to put it in very strange terms, the "most civilized schism" we have seen in our lifetime.

I'm sure there was a lot a discussion and debate behind closed doors, but rather than making a spectacle and public defamation about it, they recognized that there is no way they can maintain communion as much as they could for whatever reasons we may find out later as time goes on.
It is grievous that the BOC finds it necessary to leave not just the jurisdiction of the Coptic Church but the OO Communion in its entirety.  With all respect, I don't understand how any jurisdiction - after being received into the communion of the canonical Church - would wish to return to a state in which they are in communion with nobody.

Only as much as you enjoy being a provocateur and then playing the victim when people call you on it.  Now stop spewing tangential nonsense.

Why are 100 a major deal? Might as well make a thread about the UFOists or Slavic Protestants by Fort Ross
Oh, only 100? Right. Who cares? Wasn't there some parable about how if you're missing, like, 100 sheep, it's negligible... Don't go looking for them. Definitely don't go looking if it were only one.
Yeah but they didn't get lost or die, they just left communion. You're exaggerating the situation. I'm sure they have their own views and arguments and can be persuaded back.
Stop, before you embarrass yourself further.
Careful, zz, you'll make him start stutter typing and creeping everyone out again.
Why would you say something like that? What's wrong with you?

A joke, huh?  So - randomly profaning St. Polycarp aside - you're saying that whole creeptastic little anime weirdo thing you do is just shtick?

And while you're at it, stop being dismissive of what is truly a "tragic schism", even if you don't see it as such because of the numbers involved.
Do you enjoy being a sadistic bully?
Only as much as you enjoy being a provocateur and then playing the victim when people call you on it.  Now stop spewing tangential nonsense.
But what if they ARE a victim?

Well, pre-1994 status, and Fr. Peter can correct me if I'm wrong, is when the BOC was in no communion with any Church, OO or EO.  As Fr. Peter alluded, this is the status they chose, and this means they are essentially in schism.  The reason we are confused is perhaps this is, to put it in very strange terms, the "most civilized schism" we have seen in our lifetime.

I'm sure there was a lot a discussion and debate behind closed doors, but rather than making a spectacle and public defamation about it, they recognized that there is no way they can maintain communion as much as they could for whatever reasons we may find out later as time goes on.
It is grievous that the BOC finds it necessary to leave not just the jurisdiction of the Coptic Church but the OO Communion in its entirety.  With all respect, I don't understand how any jurisdiction - after being received into the communion of the canonical Church - would wish to return to a state in which they are in communion with nobody.

It is pretty serious to schismate from the Church. It isn't like quitting the Elk Lodge.

[/quote]

yeah, thats why I refused to join the Knights of columbus when they tried to make me a deal I couldn't refuse, i still said "no". Leaving both roman catholicism AND the knights of columbus is double trouble!

But to further clarify, my thought was inspired by Ram Dass in the book/movies entitled "A Little Princess".
I'm unfamiliar with the work.  How does it give one the impression that the BOC might be populated by Malayalees?  Is this simply because of Britain's colonial history in India?
If you were once a little girl, you would know the story. And it is just because there are Indians in Great Britain. Nothing more.
Were you once a little girl?

This is applicable to so many...and would explain so much

Nice try? "You're a wizard, Harry." Better? I just implied the existence and support of eldritch black magicks most sinister. By the Old Testament, I should be burned at the stake.
