Come again?

Tom Hanks is Orthodox?

Hollywood actor Tom Hanks appreciates his membership in the Orthodox Church and intends to raise his four children in similar vein.

“I am aware that it is vitally important to come to church and contemplate those substantial questions put by Orthodoxy and the answers it offers,” Hanks said in an interview published by Argumenty i Fakty.

Ah wait, this explains everything.

“I consider Greek Orthodoxy my own spiritual heritage. I got married in the same church where my wife had been baptized. My children were baptized in the same baptismal font as my wife,” Tom Hanks said. According to Hanks, this makes his family “a part of the large universal Church”.

“We go to church on rare occasions, but when we do, we have dinner together and discuss our feelings after that,” he added.

Pascha Orthodox. So Tom Hanks is Orthodox like Doug Kmiec is Roman Catholic. Hat tip: Alex.

    Haaaaaaaaahahahaaaaa… “when we do, we have dinner together and discuss our feelings after that.”

    Even Roman Catholics don’t do that.

    Feelings are useless. They get in the way of a monastic life.
