In the end, they’re indistinguishable, aren’t they? POWER over people… that’s what attracts them… there’s no money to be had, God only knows! You know what to do… starve them BOTH out.
As of today, the apparatchiki of the OCA and ROCOR stand together… in defence of the sodomite Isidore Brittain… in defence of the accused paedophile Seraphim Storheim… in defence of Bobby K… in defence of the coverup artist John Erickson… in defence of Raymond Velencia. After all, we had to expect this after Alexander Lebedeff’s unseemly, unprovoked, and ungodly attack on Kristi Koumentakos.
The ROCOR has people who are afraid of its old ghosts… they fear that victims of Sam Greene, Panteleimon Metropoulos, and Gleb Podmoshensky will come forward and beggar them (as well they should). Indeed, Fathausen has NEVER asked forgiveness for his lengthy association with Podmoshensky… he treats it as if it were “normal”. Don’t forget… Fathausen’s dalliance with Podmoshensky came AFTER GP’s suspension and defrocking by the ROCOR Holy Synod.
This is a sad day, today… nevertheless, this isn’t the fruit of a natural growth… it’s the coming together of two sets of scheming clerical bureaucrats… they’re the same under the skin, aren’t they? I’ve always said that the present malaise affects both the OCA and the ROCOR… this proves it, even for the slow learners. Interesting… OCA and ROCOR clergy who have never met me have attacked me… that’s their MO kiddies… they have the right to condemn you without a hearing! Of course, when the accused is a clergyman… see how they all flock together to defend the prerequisites of their “caste”.
Did you notice how none of these clerical paladins, both OCA and ROCOR, stood up publicly and loudly for either Mme Plas or for Eric Iliff? That is, any member of the laity who dares to do as little as to question the clerical apparatchiki is to be defamed and destroyed, if possible. Don’t forget… His Holiness praised Mme Plas and held her up as an exemplar… even though the Parisians and the OCA blackened her name (and the ROCOR bureaucrats did likewise through their silence).
I shall say this, God ALLOWED the Reds to chastise the Church… it had grown fat, ugly, unresponsive, and greedy… sounds a bit like the present apparatchiki of the OCA and ROCOR, no? God will not be mocked…
