1. Lapraka...….. Orthodox has many meanings. Its even used in the sport of boxing...!!!
    An Orthodox religious belief or interpretation is one handed down by the churches founders and then leaders. When capitalised, as in Orthodox Judaism, Orthodox refers to a branch within a large religious organisation that claims to honour the religion's "original and/or traditional" beliefs.
    The English language refers to 'Orthodox" as something old, traditional, original, the first, etc.
    You may look to google and find a number of meanings for Orthodox, but in the religious framework it most certainly is understood to mean original, oldest, etc.
    And as a matter of fact the Christian Orthodox faith is the oldest of the Christian organisations. It was as late as 1054 (I think) that Rome split, and approx 500 years later the Protestant church split from the Catholic church.
    Hope thats cleared up any confusion.

  2. Tito Reloaded, what is wrong with you? Are you angry with the world or just yourself? Try replying to my text with a touch of reality...
    MSG, I have to say I do worry about you. Your views on religion are strange but lack respect.
    For your information just about every male member of the British royal family gets married in a military uniform. So, do you wish to call our royals pagans....?
    To conclude, I have little idea what you are going on about. But more of a worry I think you don't either..........

  3. View from the U.K,
    Sorry, I do not wish to criticize you, but “orthodox” does not mean “original”. Check it out for yourself.

    Is this way of communicating the british manners?
    The south slavic language is much richer, when it is about insulting somebody, you should really try it.

  5. MSG, are you for real????
    The Orthodox faith is the oldest of Christian churches. Orthodox means original. How do you think up such rubbish??? Why do you spread lies??
    As for war not being the way forward, did you preach this to the Albanians in the 90s??? It was the Albos who formed the terrorist group (kla) in the early 1990s in order to start a conflict in the late 90s. Serbia was only protecting its lands from thieves, the same as any other country would.

    In the 90s, I was a school boy in the States. I didn't know there was a difference between Serbs and Albanians. At that time, I probably couldn't point to Serbia on a map. A lot has changed since then, and I would suggest what you wrote but I am not living in Kosovo but Serbia even though my family has land near Prizren.

    You can call a church whatever you want but the name does not always match reality. Could a Bible reader ever expect the shepherds of his people to wear golden robes, a golden crown, and allow people to kiss their hands. I don't recognize the Christianity of the New Testament in that religious organization. Do you? It's not about words but substance.

  7. And anyways, Jesus taught peace not war. It would be strange for a person to appear in front of the liturgy -- which is suppose to be worship and participation in the life of God -- wearing a uniform of another kingdom. But, again, such persons are already members of another kingdom, not of the kingdom of Jesus Christ. And the Orthodox temple is actually a pagan temple because true worship of God is not found there. So, I favor allowing them to do as they please. Pagans have freedom of worship too. But from a political standpoint, I could see why the Montenegrin government would ask them to take off their military uniforms.

    @ make Serbia Great - Not sure if the Crni Gorci are THAT religious or they did did that for spite...BUT I agree with the rest of your comment. STRONGLY AGREE!
    What Kingdom do we belong to? That is the Life vs death Eternal question for EVERYONE!!
