27 January 2013. Ho Hum Department… OCA Official Website Does Incompetent Botch Job on Mollard Installation and So-Called “March for Life”

01 Hillbilly still

______________________________

Click here for oca.org’s “reportage” on the so-called March for Life. It’s done in an unprofessional and incompetent manner. Were there any other Orthodox clergy present besides the OCA members? The images did show a Coptic cleric, after all. Who was he? How many clergy were present? How many Orthodox archdioceses marched along with Mollard? How many marchers were in the group? Note well, most of the images were tightly-focused, to give the impression of a larger crowd. A local source told me that the crowd overall wasn’t as large as he expected… this occasion has been losing momentum over the years. He said, “It’s like a balloon with a slow leak… it’s just a little bit smaller every year”. It’s become entangled with the Republican Party… that keeps many away. Pro-Life isn’t merely opposition to abortion…

Click here for oca.org’s excuse of a post on Mollard’s installation. This didn’t report any news; it wasn’t journalism, it was cheerleading of the most sycophantic sort. Patriarchia.ru would’ve had the names of the bishops present at the Dixie Fry and what Local Churches they represented. Lyonyo had no names posted at all. Vlad Legoida wouldn’t have included the biographical data… there would’ve been a link to an online bio; it was wasteful non-reportage to fill up the page, that’s all. Furthermore, the images were of extremely-poor quality and there were too many of them posted, leading to a confusing and incoherent visual presentation. At most, there should’ve been twenty images, no more… that’s what an important event on patriarchia.ru gets. The piss-poor dark snaps reflected poorly on the OCA… it was hutsky-klutsky all the way. Yet, one could see that George Schaefer and Yustinian Ovchinnikov were there. The ROCOR sent a vicar bishop (not a ruling bishop)… the Centre sent it’s man in New York. Note well that the Blunder stayed away. By the way, there was no post on patriarchia.ru on this… just watch, it’ll be there tomorrow, posted by the Blunder’s greasy eunuchs in Bolshaya Ordynka. In the end, this was a botch from stem to stern… Vlad Legoida would’ve had a complete post up within hours of the event’s end. What a buncha maroons.

To cap off this sorry story, the Ukies had a sellout crowd of nearly 400 for their metropolitan’s installation dinner. The OCA installation dinner didn’t even get 150… and over half of them were freebies handed out to flesh out the crowd. Do note that no images of Mollard’s installation banquet were up on either oca.org or Facebook. This indicates APATHY of the most-serious sort. Not even the First Families wanted to come for this dinner (usually, they all flock to such shindigs… if for nothing else, to show their support of the new apparat). Furthermore, Eastern PA is just up the road a piece from the District, and the poor turnout means that many of his former parishioners didn’t want to come to this event, either. This doesn’t augur well for the OCA in general or for Tikhon Mollard in particular. He’s a smiling genial incompetent… he’ll keep the OCA charade going for at least another two years (whilst Lyonyo and Dahulich brawl in the background). Oh yes… do watch for the Storheim verdict in Canada… and Mollard’s reaction to it. That’ll be interesting, kids…

By the way… there’s still no news or buzz on Fatso’s reception into the ROCOR. The Centre’s completely silent… and that’s not good for Jimmy and Potapov, by the way. There’s an anti-American mood in Moscow right now, and the chances of a Far Right loon getting into the ROCOR with the Centre’s blessing doesn’t look good. If they were going to move, they’ve had over a month to do so… and the Monomuckos letter campaign won’t do a bit of good. This isn’t a popularity contest, after all (thank God)…
