A money quote:
This is a common occurrence with the radical converts too. They never convert to Orthodoxy in order to meditate silently atop a mountain. No, they get a wholesale makeover and then begin talk talk talking again. They shift from Right Wing fundy-extremists to pacifist vegans. They start talking about “the Jews” this and “the Freemasons” that. They join Serbian liberation movements. There’s more than a bit of identity crisis involved here.
Why is that converts to Rome and the East don’t blaze a trail of evangelizing the lost, but rather start using endless quotes from the Fathers to bash their previous existence as Protestants? There is an identity crisis at work, just look at the shambles that is now Frank Schaeffer.
