    You should have seen yesterday night, an adventist, two catholics (one Roman the other Orthodox), a presbyterian and some atheist troll faking religious multiple opinions, discussing religion for two straight hours on the shoutbox. :obviously:

    Catholic Orthodox is still catholic, but I see what you meant.
    To be fair, I do see you people as pretty much "the eastern guys who are kinda like papists but less heretical".

    Fixed then

    Wait, what... you're claiming as fact that Orthodox Christians are Orthodox Catholics? For real?

    Well, we do call ourselves catholic or universal in the same way I'm sure the RCC says they are orthodox or "correct worship." He clearly doesn't know much about us, but I don't like to quibble twice in a row. :M

    You're right, I'm not privy to the finer details of all the world's Christian denominations, lol. When someone says the word orthodox in reference to Christianity I just think of those guys with the big golden hats and long white beards. Are there other orthodoxies, and some of them refer to themselves as catholics, or do those guys in the big golden hats with the big white beards also refer to themselves as catholics?

    So, in a nutshell, "Catholic" means universal and "Orthodox" means correct worship.

    Originally there were five major centers of one Christian Church. Then around 1054, the one that spoke Latin (Rome) was separated from the four that spoke Greek (Alexandria, Antioch, Constantinople, Jerusalem.) This formed the Roman Catholic Church and the Eastern Orthodox church.

    Both groups describe themselves as universal (catholic) and both would say they are orthodox (worshiping correctly.) But if you describe yourself as a "Catholic Christian" it means you submit to the Pope of Rome, and an "Orthodox Christian" does not. Make sense?

    Not to mention the distinction between catholic and Catholic - as in, universal body of worshipers, and the institution that calls itself Catholic Church and its body of worshipers.

    Which is why a wrong reading of the Nicene Creed may make one think that Protestants follow Catholicism (big C) when they profess it, when its small c catholic (universal) church - as in, the universal body of worshipers.

    I always found the schism a glossed-over subject in history teaching. They speak far more of the Reformation than the Schism, but there could't be a Reformation without the Schism.

    Catholic orthodox is still catholic? That's like saying vanilla is also chocolate. They are both shit alright, but one is not exactly like the other.
