By the way, that last comment was not addressed at any Orthodox Heirarch or as criticism of the church. It was just an observation regarding the integration of cultural tendencies into Orthodox communities and the struggle which converts have in not mistaking them for aspects integral to the Orthodox worldview or faith.
Orthodoxy is not expressed by speaking a certain language, wearing certain clothes, eating certain food (except in fasts) or pretending to belong to a specific cultural heritage. It is about being part of an Apostolic Faith which grew throughout 3 continents and multiple cultures in the a patristic Era. If you want to live a life of Orthodox faith, live by the faith, not by the culture of your National Patriarchate instead.
