I hate English in the Liturgy.
My Dear Father,It just sounds terrible in all aspects of the constructs.The translations--inadequate.Singing--Middle Eastern with english words.I don't have anything against the English Language or the English.I just don't like it in the Liturgy.I accept it for the sake of others (and their needs).I was just posing my own personal preference. It's not like I would walk out of the church.I like Armenian Badarak in Armenian (despite me being Coptic). When I hear (in rare circumstances) English renderingsin the Badarak, I find it difficult to hear.I know that there is a generation that needs the English, and I'm happy that they participate.Regardless, I know that God only speaks in Coptic (joke). The only time that God speaks in English is when it is High Tea.
at the time of the arab invasion of egypt, some of the people who were heard speaking coptic had their tongues cut out.
