I bear witness that Jesus the Christ is God, and man, and that He came to save us when we had no hope in the world.  I know this from Scripture, communion with Him, and the Holy Spirit.  I would love to share with you of my faith, but this is not the best place to do that (though Theodore is very generous, the forum is for Monarchists, not Evangelical Proselytizers.

Thank you for your answer

Ah, I thought maybe I'd be all three (nutcase, baptist, Anglican)

Is there really a difference between "Greek" Catholic and "Eastern" Catholic?

I think that sometimes the former is used to designate those who 'returned to union' (and have a history of association with the Patriarch) while the latter broader term is for all those who are not Latin rite (including those who aren't Greek in liturgy).

Simply that clark identified himself as a Greek Catholic and Jovan identified himself as only an Eastern Catholic, with no specification.

Not really. All Greek Catholics are Eastern Catholics, but not all Eastern Catholics are Greek Catholics. For instance technically, only Churches of the Byzantine Rite are 'Greek Catholic', but Eastern Catholicism includes Churches of Coptic, Ethiopian, Maronite, Syriac, Syro-Malankaran and Armenian background.

Of course, it gets more complicated in actual usuage. E.g. the 'Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church' is Catholic in obedience to the Pope of Rome, but the 'Russian Orthodox Greek Catholic Church of North America' (the original name of the OCA) was not.

Thank you all for the clarifications.  It makes sense to me now.

However, I am deeply dismayed that the "Daughters of Didi" did not make the list of religions.

LeBonapartist's account got deleted, so he doesn't show up in the list of members, and hence was not recorded.

Does anyone really care who you think to be a nutcase?
