      Why Orthodox Men Love Church
      Frederica Matthewes-Green

      In a time when churches of every description are faced with Vanishing Male
      Syndrome, men are showing up at Eastern Orthodox churches in numbers that,
      if not numerically impressive, are proportionately intriguing. This may be
      the only church which attracts and holds men in numbers equal to women. As
      Leon Podles wrote in his 1999 book, "The Church Impotent: The Feminization
      of Christianity," "The Orthodox are the only Christians who write basso
      profundo church music, or need to."
