Firstly, here’s the OCA propaganda handout:
There was no news of this on the MP official website, nor was there any news of this on the two websites of the Local Church of Czechia and Slovakia. There’s an interesting omission in the above blurb… it doesn’t tell us when El Gordo and his Grand Fenwickian retinue left New York, nor their scheduled arrival date in Czechia. Svetlana Vais, in her recent Portal-Credo.ru bloviation on the oca.org staff is chock fulla beans. The oca.org staff is a set of posturing incompetents who can’t write good copy (they weren’t concise enough and used an excess of “padding”). They also failed to tell you that Bart cut Fathausen out of the fifth anniversary celebrations of Metropolitan Kryštof Pulec, Bart was insistent on that point, and Kryštof complied.
In any case, this trip isn’t about the stated purpose. I’ll wager that El Gordo’s going to Europe to talk with Vlad Berzansky Jr about l’Affaire Wood. I checked the pravmir.ru site; the original posting on Dickie’s “return” is still there, with no further news reported. In addition, there was nothing on patriarchia.ru on the matter. What information I’m receiving is gelling; it appears to say, at first glance, that Dickie may have kompromat of some sort upon him and the Centre has SERIOUS issues with him. It’s been a couple of days shy of four weeks since Fathausen’s 28 July 2011 fatwa suspending Dickie, and there’s been no OFFICIAL word of any illness on Dickie’s part, save for some self-serving shlock being circulated by Nina Dimas and other interested Syosset/SVS parties. Is JP going to bring Dickie home? The trip appears rather extended for a Church that lives from hand-to-mouth at the best of times, and times are hard now (that’s not to mention, of course, Fathausen’s juvenile “Let them eat brioche” attitude).
Don’t be surprised to see Dickie pop into the picture. I could be wrong, of course… but it seems likely… it seems probable. Remember, JP didn’t tell anyone about this supposed “invitation” until after the shit had hit the fan with Dickie (and his lawyer Berzansky). How much are you willing to bet on my speculation? The odds are more than even, I’d say…
