Local Monastery Student Pleads Not Guilty to Indecent Solicitation Charges

00 kiddie sex suspect. 25.09.14

______________________________

According to authorities, a Libertyville IL man recently charged with indecent solicitation of a minor was in his fourth and final year of training to become a monk at the St Sava Serbian Orthodox Monastery near the village. On Wednesday, 29 October, Dario Spasic, 22, pleaded not guilty to charges of indecent solicitation of a minor under the age of 17, a Class 3 felony that carries a potential prison sentence of two to five years. A conviction can also result in a probationary sentence. Cops arrested and charged Spasic in September, after he allegedly agreed on the Internet to meet in person with someone he believed to be a 14-year-old boy. Officials said that he chatted online with a member of the Lake County Sheriff’s Office Cyber Crimes Unit.

Assistant State’s Attorney Mary Stanton said Spasic, who’s from Ohio, was living on Milwaukee Avenue in unincorporated Libertyville when the incident took place. She said that he was in his fourth year as a student at the Serbian Monastery, also located on Milwaukee Avenue north of Libertyville. Spasic was initially jailed on 100,000 USD (4.32 million Roubles. 612,000 Renminbi. 6.14 million INR. 112,000 CAD. 114,000 AUD. 79,000 Euros. 62,500 UK Pounds) bond, but subsequently bonded out and the court allows him to live in Ohio with his parents, whilst being monitored by the court’s pre-trial services department. Stanton said the state had objected to allowing him to reside out of state prior to trial, but that he’s required to attend every hearing in person. He was present Wednesday for his arraignment before Judge George Bridges. According to sheriff’s police, Spasic used a social networking application to set up a 22.00 meeting with the boy that he thought was 14 years old, but instead of that, a sheriff’s office detective was waiting for him. according to the sheriff’s office , he allegedly told investigators that he set up the meeting “to engage in sexual activities”.

23 October 2014. E-Mail Mollard… DEMAND that the OCA Stop Paying Storheim… Enough of the Believers’ Money has Gone to His Shyster

00 Barbara-Marie Drezhlo. Pearl S Buck. The Truth is Exciting

If the truth is “exciting”… then, what does that tell us about those who bend and twist the truth? Now, that’s a meaty morsel, no? In any case, Our Lord Christ is the Way, the TRUTH, and the Life… He isn’t a pettifogging and slinking shyster!

Re:

Archbishop Seraphim’s salary from the Archdiocese of Canada

Dear Metropolitan Tikhon,

We are members of the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP), the world’s oldest and largest support group for clergy abuse victims.

It recently came to our attention that the Archdiocese of Canada has continued to pay Archbishop Seraphim Storheim a salary, despite the fact that his retirement was announced by the synod of bishops on 3 April 2014.

http://archdiocese.ca/content/2014-may-23-24-ottawa-minutes-and-reports

(Page 6)

The material linked above clearly indicates that the archbishop is no longer an employee of the archdiocese. It seems apparent to us that these monies are simply a clandestine way to use Church resources to help pay for Archbishop Seraphim’s attorneys.

However, officials made it clear shortly after the archbishop’s arrest that this was inappropriate.

http://web.archive.org/web/20110427014925/http://archdiocese.ca/news/2010/20101230-fund_raise_for_Vladyka_Seraphim.htm

Archbishop Seraphim is currently living in a monastery. He has no expenses for housing or for food. He has his pension from the Canadian government. In our opinion the archdiocese should not be slipping him money under the table. It is a slap in the face of those two brave men who testified about their abuse at the hands of the archbishop.

We implore you to bring this disturbing situation to the attention of the synod. This travesty needs to be rectified immediately.

Sincerely,

David Clohessy

Write Mollard… demand that the OCA stop paying a convicted perv. It’s bad enough that his mouthpiece slammed the victims… it’s worse that the believers’ money went to that shyster. Don’t subsidise a perv! Full stop! Mr Justice Mainella had Storheim’s number… we should heed him… NOT the First Family rats. ‘Nuff said…

21 October 2014. A Wrinkle on the OCA’s “Background Checks”

01 money down toilet

______________________________

Due to the bad publicity stemming from the Storheim affair and the well-known homosexual hijinks of some higher clergy, the OCA is requiring clergy and altar servers to undergo “background checks”. That isn’t what’s wrong… it’s that the OCA is making them pay for it out of their own pockets! In other words, the OCA has to run checks so that its insurers and lawyers are happy, but the institutional Church is refusing to pay for it and is trying to fob the costs onto the clergy and servers. Lyonyo and Jillions deserve a Cossack horsewhipping for this. Watch ‘em crawl outta their holes and claim that it ain’t so. They have money for ecumenical lovefeasts with the papist attackers of the Mother Church (and for indifferentist meetings with the Uniate killers of our compatriots in Novorossiya), but they have no money to pay for the background checks demanded by their insurers and lawyers. I’ll check into Bedlam with Mr Scrooge…

The OCA continues to deteriorate as Mollard drools vacuously (yet, more than one source has told me that’s preferable to Dahulich having the white hat… I tend to agree). Yet, that may be for the best in the end… each day sees one less true believer in the OCA Myth… that’s a GOOD thing. Let it mature in God’s good time…

German Families to Sue the Ukraine Over MH17 Crash

00 Rossiya-Segodnya Infographics. Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 Crash Near Donetsk. 2014

______________________________

The families of German citizens killed in the Malaysian plane crash in the eastern Ukraine plan to sue the Ukrainian authorities in the European Court of Human Rights, accusing them of manslaughter by negligence. Elmar Giemulla, a professor of aviation law representing three families of German victims, told Bild am Sonntag, a German Sunday newspaper that the Ukraine should’ve closed its airspace if it couldn’t provide for the safety of flights over its territory, saying, “Each state is responsible for securing its airspace. If it isn’t able to do so temporarily, it must close its airspace. As that didn’t happen, the Ukraine is liable for the damage”. According to Giemulla, by leaving the airspace open, Kiev authorities “destroyed” the lives of hundreds of innocent people. Thus, he concluded that the Ukraine committed human rights violations; therefore, it should pay at least one million Euros (49.4 million Roubles. 7.9 million Renminbi. 78.2 million INR. 1.3 million USD. 1.4 million CAD. 1.45 million AUD. 787,000 UK Pounds) to each family of the German crash victims.

Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 crashed on its way from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur over the eastern Ukraine on 17 July. Amongst the 298 victims killed in the incident were four German citizens. A preliminary report into the disaster delivered by Dutch investigators on 9 September said that the MH17 crash was a result of structural damage caused by a large number of high-energy objects striking the Boeing from the outside. Earlier, a number of Western countries blamed Russia for the tragedy, which they said came about because Novorossiyan forces helped by Moscow launched a SAM at the airliner. Russia denied such allegations, expressing some irritation with the lack of new evidence presented in the report. Moscow suggested that the UN should appoint a special representative to monitor the investigation into the MH17 shootdown. Moscow made radar surveillance data of the incident public, arguing that it pointed to the possibility that the Ukrainian side downed the Malaysian plane. On Wednesday, an independent German fraud investigation company said that it’d pay 30 million USD (1.16 billion Roubles. 185 million Renminbi. 1.83 billion INR. 32.9 million CAD. 33.6 million AUD. 23.4 million Euros. 18.4 million UK Pounds) to those who’d help identify the perpetrators of the disaster.

Some irresponsible Western sources attack RT… the above proves that RT IS credible… perhaps, more so than its Western analogues. After all, why would Western media sources attack it if it weren’t making them look bad? You may believe Patrick Buchanan George Will, Rich Lowry, and Rod Dreher, who issue pre-digested Western pap in praise of and puffing up undisguised evil in the form of unbridled crapitalism, or you may believe non-Western sources such as RT… it’s up to you…
