Non-believers, non-Catholics, please take note.

Welcome to the Catholic & Orthodox Group. This is a safe haven group where discussions about Catholicism and Orthodoxy take place in a forum free from gratuitous attacks or derision of religion and religious beliefs. There are other places for those who really like to do that. Our focus is on the beliefs and traditions of Catholicism and Orthodoxy. For the rest, welcome, and pax vobiscum. Peace be among you.

Constructive criticism of the politics of the Catholic hierarchy is permitted, but no incendiary attacks on the Catholic and/or Orthodox faiths will be tolerated.

I have seen more than a few posters violating these rules, and while everyone is welcome to their opinion, this is not the place for them. Please note where you are before making a post or responding. You are more than welcome to cross-post one of our links in Religion and discuss it there.

Thank you.

Groups are different than forums. They have rules. To not follow those rules is disrespectful. Maybe you are into disrespect, but I am not. If you want to be disrespectful, please go elsewhere.

Thank you.

I try to seek out places to talk about our faith and in the context here of our shared views and differences politely. I'm not a very often poster, as can tell by the number of them, but would like to come here more often.

All they need is a polite reminder, usually. You're welcome to come here anytime, and post.
