  1. Ah, you’ve moved the discussion. That’s fine. I thought about doing the same thing. For the moment, a couple of clarifications (there will be a detailed response later):

    A)I am not Roman Catholic. I am a priest of an Independent Orthodox-Catholic Church which embraces the non-chalcedonian Syriac Orthodox tradition. (As an aside, if you had converted to either form of Orthodoxy, we would not be having this conversation.)

    B)Not being RC, I am neither a Dominican nor a Franciscan. Therefore, I am not a “Friar”. I am a “Father” (but since you probably have problems with that, feel free to call me “Greg”).

  2. Dear Greg,

    Thank you for the clarifications,and please forgive my mistakes. I have corrected them as you can tell. I moved the discussion to this site because (1) I wasn’t sure it was directly relevant to Todd Wood’s question regarding the LDS church, and (2) I didn’t want to clutter his post with lengthy discussions that may be tangential to his topic. I have read your response on Todd Woods blog and look forward to offering a response. That response will probably have to wait, however, till I return from vacation with my family. Once again, I appreciate the opportunity to interact about such important matters.

    Your servant,
    Bob Gonzales

  3. That’s fine, Bob. I’m going to be out of town for a week or two myself. Taking daughter to college in Chicago. Please keep us in your prayers and you and your family will be in ours.
