“Oyez! Oyez! All those with business before this honourable court, please, step forward! … Oh, shit! It’s the OCA… AGAIN! What’s it this time? Is it a paedophile bishop… or is it a blabbermouth priest… or is it “missing” financial records? It’s something else? Well… it’s certainly not boring with you guys in my court!”
Well, kids, it’s not much, but it’s NEWS… Dickie’s lawyer (Vlad Berzansky Jr?) called the OCA to say that if they don’t reinstate him after he leaves hospital he’ll sue them. We still don’t know where Dickie is, and Syosset and JP refuse to issue even a purported reason for his “leave of absence” (there’s been ten days of official silence!). This is incredible… simply mind-numbing. As a friend of mine who’s a former parish warden in the TEC said, “That’s simply NOT DONE. They’d all be out, without hesitation or qualm. You don’t refuse to give a reason for your actions”. THIS is the practical upshot of the so-called “Brum Doctrine”… Mr Brum (an old pal of JP’s, by the way) wrote that the Metropolitan of the OCA is an absolutist dictator not bound by the Sobor, Holy Synod, MC, or canon laws/customary usages. JP follows that route, kids… he believes that he’s “entitled”… God do help us. It’s time for Mel Pleska and the Holy Synod to act… it’s time to defrock JP for incompetence, if nothing else. He’s refused to give a reason for his action, and he’s refused to disclose Dickie’s whereabouts (or, if he doesn’t know them, he should say so, publicly). The sheer stupidity of this is that the Winnipeg magistrate is watching this unfold. The OCA’s credibility, which was already in the toilet, has now sunk even further. If the OCA is to retain even the slightest semblance of integrity and authority, it must defrock Fathausen, and that’s that. Shall it? Only time will tell us…

A friend sent me this:
I hope it happens… imagine the testimony… get those freaks on the stand under oath, and watch them throw each other under the bus. They made a deal with Bobby so that wouldn’t happen… this is getting good!
Unfortunately, it isn’t a soap opera (As the Icon Burns), but it’s real life… it’s time for the remaining grownups to whack the kids on the backside and put ‘em to bed. Otherwise, they’ll be NO OCA… and in very short order, too. It’s time for the Holy Synod to defrock El Gordo, Dickie, Jensen, Tate (and all the other HOOMie poseurs), Eliel, Peterson, and Brum… do a clean sweep! Good riddance to bad rubbish, I say!
