It’s time for the Church to slap down disobedient shits like Reardon. If the Church as”Church” doesn’t mind signing marriage licences, then, this narcissistic bastard has to be disciplined and run out of the priesthood. He lacks a proper Orthodox clerical formation anyway, and jumped to the Antiochians when the OCA (rightly) refused to ordain him. We don’t need such hate and distortion (if not downright heresy) amongst us. I think it’s time to offer the konvertsy a choice… “Be part of the Real Church, or be gone”. That’s my POV, any road…

The Orthodox Church in America (OCA) has issued a statement regarding the recent Supreme Court decision regarding same-sex marriage. I appreciate the following from His Beatitude Metropolitan Tikhon:
The ruling does not change the teaching of the Church, but it does remind us of the need to be Christ-like in our dealings with everyone. The state has the responsibility to enact laws that protect the rights of each individual. The Church, while it does not bless “same-sex marriages” or view them as sacramental, does see the image of Christ in every individual, and his or her worth in the eyes of the Lord Who died upon the Cross for our salvation.
