This crudely-made and badly-scripted konvertsy video show the hubris and diabolic pride of this faction. You see, they’re “concerned about their souls”, whilst the rest of us are prideful and anti-religious. In point of fact, the reality’s quite the opposite. If we don’t remove gibbering heretics such as Paffhausen, our faith will go down the chute, and we’d have no one but ourselves to blame for it. JP attempted to ally the Holy Church with godless money-worshipping elements on the Far Right… it was one of the reasons that the Holy Synod removed him (it was a side-issue, but it was there). Also, he was reckless… don’t forget how he had a convicted felon (Michael Pasonick) as part of his delegation at the so-called March for Life (that’s not what it appears… it’s a stalking horse of the political Far Right).
You need an antidote to that, so, here’s:
Frank Schaeffer points up the nauseating rubbish that the konvertsy are trying to contaminate the Church with. They’re trying to ally us with the worst factions in Sectarianism, and Real Orthodox have to fight that with all their might. Look at the late Job Osacky, “the last honest bishop in the OCA“, and compare him with the disgusting Matthias Moriak, a nepotist who smoothed the way for his son to take over a plum parish in Columbus OH and who attacked Vladyki Job’s oikonomia towards Mark Stokoe. Mark’s crazier than a loon in some things, but Fr Ted Bobosh’s pastoral leeway was legit, it was in sync with the Church’s teaching, and Vladyki Job knew and approved of it. These semi-Evangelical phonies aren’t going to be with us much longer, so, don’t argue with them, it’s pointless.
God is calling us to UNITY. It’s time to bring together the healthy elements of the Russian Orthodox diaspora under the Mother Church. A “Rump OCA” will exist, and it’ll be loud, and it’ll be a “pain in the arse” (people like Rod Dreher will belong to it). Let it be… God is calling us to better things. We have Russian Orthodoxy in America to rebuild… now, that’s something well-worth fighting for. The OCA’s going DOWN. It’s nothing to gloat over. Too many are going to be hurt (and have been hurt). It’s a rum go, all the way ’round.
