On Thursday night, cops arrested a Fairfield CA clergyman from St Timothy Orthodox Church on multiple counts of child molestation in Suisun City. The clergy of the Diocese of Los Angeles contacted Fairfield Police Department‘s Major Crime Unit and reported that one of their pastors had committed possible molestations. The alleged molester is Robert Ruark, 65, from Suisun, also known as Fr Silas. He coordinated the acolyte programme for boys eight years old and older. According to Fairfield Police, Ruark had photographed the alleged victims naked and most of the incidents happened at the church when the pastor was alone with the victims. The incidents involving the five alleged victims go back to 1994 and they are now between 20 and 24 years old. According to detectives, the alleged victims had been targeted as young as age 13. The cops took Ruark to the Solano County Jail. The Fairfield Police Department is still trying to identify victims of Ruark and asks that anyone with information that may help identify victims, or if they themselves are victims of Ruark, please contact the Fairfield Police Department Investigations Bureau at (707) 428-7600, or the 24-hour Tip Line at (707) 428-7345.

St Timothy parish is part of the Diocese of Los Angeles and the West of the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America. Ruark is an Angliochian convert… this skulduggery doesn’t surprise me. However, it does pleasantly surprise me to find out that the AOCANA turned the scum-bucket in. Perhaps, it’s a ripple effect from the Storheim affair. Bishop Joseph al-Zehlaoui isn’t going to let anything harm his chances of succeeding Saliba; ergo, he saw to it that the sleazeball got the drop. It looks like the good guys won this one, kids. However, it’s never good to find this shit out… it’s ammunition for the anti-clericalists and it means that some kids are scarred for life. The SOB deserves nine grammes of lead at dawn… God willing, he’ll get his when he goes to the slam (unfortunately, that probably won’t happen… the prison authorities put molesters in Punk City as a matter of course, and that will preserve his rotten hide).
