Local Priest Arrested For Trying To Have Sex with Underage Boys… Greek Orthodox Community Responded to Priest’s Sex Crime Accusation

A priest at the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Cathedral faces charges of trying to meet young boys for sex. Fr Patrick Nicholas Hughes, 56, served at the church located on Goodale Boulevard and North High Street in downtown Columbus. Hughes served as a one-year interim priest at the parish. Franklin County Sheriff Zach Scott said that he didn’t believe any of the misconduct occurred at the church, but feared there may be other victims in this case. Sheriff Scott said that Hughes used a website to try and arrange a meeting with underage children, ages 9 and 14, on an adult social media website; however, instead, Hughes exchanged messages with detectives. Scott said, “This guy thought that a parent had posted his kids online to have sex with him. There are groups out there that do this”.

Sheriff Scott said that detectives knew Hughes was travelling from Mansfield to Columbus for what he believed would be sex with a 9-year-old and a 14-year-old boy. It wasn’t until they arrested him that detectives found out Hughes was a priest at the church, according to Scott, who observed, “The internet’s full of this kind of stuff. What makes this so unusual is that this happens to be a Greek Orthodox priest, and this is the first one that I can remember ever having as a sheriff or as a detective for years”.

The church’s website lists Hughes as the “Very Reverend Archimandrite Nicholas Hughes”. Religious experts tell 10TV News that his title indicates that he’s a senior unmarried priest, on his way to becoming a bishop. Now, he’s in jail on felony charges of attempted rape and attempted unlawful sexual conduct with a minor. Sheriff Scott said, “It’s pretty disgusting, unfortunately these groups are out there”.

Church officials released a statement Thursday evening and said that it wasn’t the church’s purpose to speculate, saying, “As a community, we’re in a collective state of shock and disbelief regarding the events surrounding the acting Dean of the Cathedral. He’s faithfully served this parish in a temporary capacity for the past year”. Hughes was in jail on a 100,000 USD (3.1 million Roubles. 77,000 Euros. 62,000 UK Pounds) bond.

Fr Patrick Nicholas Hughes, 56, served at the church located on Goodale Boulevard and North High Street in downtown Columbus. Hughes served as a one-year interim priest at the parish. When news of the allegations broke, the church community dealt with the shock. One parishioner said, “I’m just stunned. I’m hoping that there’s no truth to it”.

Hughes allegedly posted an online ad suggesting he wanted to have sexual relations with children. Someone responded to that ad, stating that they had a 9- and 14-year-old boy available. Hughes agreed to meet them on Thursday. Franklin County Sheriff Zach Scott said the priest was talking to a detective the entire time.

Sheriff Scott said he didn’t believe any of the misconduct occurred at the church, but feared there may be other victims in this case. Church officials said that they’d launch their own investigation to ensure that there were no other victims.

Editor’s Note:

The konvertsy run about, screaming to us about how “pure” and “strict” they are. Well, I observe that many of the stories “out there” concerning alleged “interesting doings” in the Church were found to be about prominent konvertsyStorheim, l’Huillier, Royster, Madison, Greene, Peterson, to name just a few. There are stories about the HOOMie clergy that won’t die (and the HOOMie faithful are typical cultists in their cover-up of them). That’s not to mention the buzz about Lone Ranger Lazor, Herman Swaiko, Panteleimon Metropoulos, Nikolai Soraich, and Izzy Brittain. Of course, let’s not forget the capo di tutti capi guru of the konvertsy, Gleb Podmoshensky (he was a big influence on Fathausen, Freddie M-G, and Dreher).

I’d observe that the konvertsy are no more or less sinful-ginful than we ethnics are. However, they’re not going to shut up, and it’s going to come down to a fight. We outnumber them, and we’re going to win. Yet, it’ll be nasty and bloody… indeed, the konvertsy may try to clump off to the Georgians, as the dippy no-nun nuns in Maryland are trying to do, to form a new “pure” OCA. Remember the Georgians didn’t start their candy store here until Fathausen went to Georgia in ’09 (that was AFTER the Russians kicked the Georgians’ arses in their attempted invasion of South Ossetia). Did Fathausen go to Georgia at Langley’s behest? After all, he’s a Hard Right extremist and pal of known Langley assets such as Potapov (he’s also been seen in the company of such Russophobic shits as John Herbst; he hung about dubious Hard Right think-tanks such as the American Enterprise Institute and Acton Institute). Now, that’s something that the Centre should look into…
