Oriental Orthodox is a communion like the Eastern Orthodox, so the Assyrian Church is not included.  The Oriental Orthodox are the Copts, Ethiopians, Syrians, Armenians and Malankara Orthodox.

Good to know! I always thought the Assyrians and Orientals were under the same umbrella. Interesting though.
Yeah, "Oriental Orthodox" is a polite way of saying Miaphysite, which is an accurate way of saying Monophysite.
I'd rather see him wearing the panagia than kissing a koran.
