I doubt that this journo-list ever accepted the teachings of the Church, so why does he talk about going back?

Right there's what an ignorant comment looks like.

I’m there only for the teachings of the Church (and salvation, of course), not the current pope, not the current liturgy.

Rod Dreher is actually a religious person. He was Catholic;and, he made a difficult decision some years ago to leave the Roman Catholic Church and, I believe, he joined the Greek Orthodox Church. He is a believer; but, he seems to have some problems with the direction of the Church. I really, really doubt that Rod Dreher is a "journo-list". His religiosity would make him anathema to the lefty "journo-listers".

He is searching for his place of comfort to worship God and Jesus. I will give him the benefit of the doubt, as one's religious needs are so very personal. But, he is a believer in God and Christ.

Rod Dreher is a serious Christian I have known for years. Once a convert to Catholicism, now Eastern Orthodox.

I am quite convinced that he was wrong to leave the Catholic Church, but I nevertheless consider him eminently worth listening to.

No one can improve you as much as an unsparing, intelligent critic who loves you.

Rod converted to Catholicism around the time when the homosexual abuse scandals broke. It was just too much for him and he moved on to Orthodoxy.

At one time I was on a small private email list with him and several others (which included several FReepers) and he really struggled. Rod is a good man and is truly faithful but his roots were not deep enough in Catholicism to keep him in Rome. I don't blame him for moving on but I don't agree with his decision. If the Orthodox had not caved on barrier methods in the 1970s and divorce and remarriage, there was a time in my own life where I could easily have swum the Bosporus.
