Re: Blasphemy and Accusatory Snide Remarks!

In reply to Blasphemy and Accusatory Snide Remarks! Dena, posted by Dog on December 15, 2003, at 15:55:51

Whoa! I think feelings ran a little hot here. I am a former Protestant (I was Methodist as a child and Lutheran as an adult). I am a convert to Eastern Orthodoxy (the church that goes way back BEFORE the Reformation). And I must say that I know what Dena is referring to re. Mary because I have read some Protestant writings that essentially put her down. It is one thing to not "worship" her (BTW, she is venerated in our faith, not "worshipped"), but SOME (perhaps not you or people you know, but SOME) Protestants do go a little bit too far in the other direction. Please don't say these attitudes don't exist anywhere in Protestantism; you may not have expereinced it or read it yourself, but Dena and I have. However anything we post has to do with our own experiences and not YOU or YOUR faith per se. Hope that helps.
