I’ve heard from several reputable sources that Fr John Bohush’s parish near Philadelphia voted to leave the OCA and join the ROCOR. If true (and I stress IF, as there’s no official intel on this as yet), there may be actions short of canonical release (for such is what they seek) to put things to rights. Firstly, the OCA Synod of Bishops (SOBs) could vote to retire Maymon, on the grounds of upsetting his diocese, which has the oldest parishes of the OCA in the Lower 48 in it (I stand under correction in this, but I think that it’s true). Maymon and Moriak were shitbirds of a feather… but at least they’re open in their nutcake affectations, which makes them easy to deal with (relatively). Dahulich is another story… he had a major falling-out with Nicholas Šmisko, which doesn’t augur well for his future. Besides that, he’s an open EP partisan and encourages young clergy to wear Uniate-style vestments (Dahulich’s notions contaminated our new parish priest, as one can see in the Uniate vestments that he wears virtually all the time… he’s too young and immature to see how dangerously pro-papist Dahulich is). Dahulich is much more dangerous than Maymon is, and the SOBs know it. Dahulich has a papist PhD… he’s soft on the Unia, soft on the papists, soft on the Republicans, and soft on the EP. I believe that he’s ready to sell out part of the OCA to Bart, and I believe that most of the SOBs are aware of that, too (Mollard is too bovine and stupid to know this, but “he’s a hat-rack for the white hat”, as one priest told me).
There be reasons why the SOBs haven’t moved against Maymon up to this point, the main one being that Dahulich is the main enemy… he bears watching constantly, for one turns one’s back on him in peril. DO remember how the Sobor coalesced against him… Mollard has the white hat as the Sobor delegates wanted to deny it to Dahulich; that’s what many told me, and I believe them. The Bohush clan is one of the oldest po-nashemu families in the OCA (my late friend Denise was a Bohush, her father was Al Bohush, the choir director… my Nicky has ties to the Bohushs)… this means that Maymon is in the deep kimchi with the Rusin core of his diocese. These idiots have to stop catering to ignorant Anglo konverts. In one parish, a young Dahulich-influenced priest allowed a konvert‘s complaints to upset parish tradition… this is why people like Maymon are pissing off people like Fr John. In any case, the toddlers don’t have a say, anyway… why are we allowing them this latitude? There are many reasons, but part of it is that we have people amongst us who want to suck up to the Heterodox, and one can see that most konverts (and konvert parishes, in particular) have no clue on what Real Orthodox Tradition is.
If true… VERY interesting. If true… it may NOT result in a canonical release… but it COULD. Watch this one, kids.
