Where is St Hilarion Troitsky When We Need Him? Fathausen Accepts Degree from TEC Seminary… Hatfield Addresses TEC Convocation

An Icon of St Hilarion Troitsky the New Martyr (1886-1929)… I translate what’s on the scroll below… Mr Paffhausen, I ask you St Hilarion’s question, “Christianity or the Church?” I fear that you’ve chosen the wrong door…

Let it be clearly understood that the Russian is a delightful person till he tucks in his shirt. As an Oriental, he is charming. It is only when he insists on being treated as the most easterly of western peoples instead of the most westerly of easterns that he becomes a racial anomaly extremely difficult to handle.

There’s not much to say is there? JP is trying to prove to you that he’s “important”. Yet, this proves a few points. Nashotah House is a TEC seminary, full stop. If JP and Hatfield signed a “Concordat” with that institution in 2009, it means that the OCA signed a concordat with the TEC. There’s no way around the logic in that. Well, you ask, what’s a concordat? Here’s a definition:

A formal agreement between two nations; a compact.

The OCA and the TEC are certainly two “sovereign bodies”… but… what’s a compact? A compact is an “agreement” or a “contract”, and I’m sure that no one needs definitions of those. This means that the OCA made promises to the TEC; it made commitments and offers to the TEC, all without asking the faithful and clergy what they felt about the matter! Furthermore, Paffhausen promised the faithful in mid-2009 that he would break all ecumenical relations with the TEC… yet, afterwards, in direct contravention of that, he made binding promises to one of the TEC’s institutions.

Note well that all the ignoramus konvertsy in Stokoe’s comboxes are in orgasm over JP… look at what your hero has done! He and Hatfield treat Anglicans as if they are Orthodox! I would simply say this… “Look at the icon of St Hilarion Troitsky posted above. The scroll reads, Bez Tserkva, Nyest SpaseniyaWithout the Church, there is no salvation. I rest my case.

The Anglo-Saxon converts despise us… they always have. They’ve been ploughing their own furrow for years. Are all of them going to leave us? No… some shall stay… I’m certain of that. However, many shall leave us… we’re just not “pure” enough for them. Let them go… don’t argue with them… it’s a lost cause. They’re people who believe in “St Pavel Florensky” and “St Seraphim Rose”… the former was a deluded professor who died in the GULag, and the latter was a monastic whose lifework was torn apart by his erstwhile co-worker.

This movement of JP towards the TEC reveals his recent statements regarding Orthodox military chaplains as pure horseshit. He embraces the TEC… he accepts a degree from one of its seminaries, after all. Moscow has broken off relations with the Anglicans, precisely on the issue of homosexuals and females in the clergy. Nashotah House embraces both, I’m afraid… it trains women for ordination, and it’s proud of it! As for gays, I’m certain that they would have been run out of the TEC if they hadn’t made a modus vivendi concerning them.

I wonder what Patrick Reardon thinks of all this…
