Orthodoxy’s social niche in America...

... is as a nearly invisible ethnic old-fashioned but mainline denomination, I think partly because of its smallness in the US and partly because of longstanding policy to blend in as much as possible and not to make waves. (But liturgically that’s not so... an advantage of not being on the radar?) This has good and bad points; respectively, normal parish life not a cult and being weak on teaching moral theology. (Roman Catholic moral theology is my gold standard.)
