Pro-Storheim Vid Resurfaces on You Tube…

Filed under: Canada,Orthodox life — 01varvara @ 00.00

Here’s the new location for the video… it looks to be basically the same thing. “This video was produced voluntarily and privately by persons who want to help raise funds so that Archbishop Seraphim can hope to afford to keep a lawyer retained for all of the legal process”. The OCA is out of funds, kiddies… they can’t pay Storheim’s shysters.

This raises even MORE questions. Why would they pull the vid, and, then, repost it? They’re headless chickens running about the barnyard splattering all concerned with their blood and gore. I never thought that the OCA would be so DUMB… well, live and learn, they say.



Hot Off the Presses! Pro-Storheim Vid Disappears from You Tube

Where is it? It’s gone!


The pro-Seraphim Storheim vid on You Tube disappeared… you see, it was part of my “history”… and my computer ratted on the idiots. It’s been “removed by the user”. I would say to the magistrate in Winnipeg… there’s something fishy here! Your Worship, you got your work cut out for you! But, you knew that already, didn’t you? It wasn’t a wise idea to put up this vid in the first place, but to pull it after it’s posted poses even more questions. In short, this removal was as dumb as dirt… wouldn’t surprise me to find out that it was JP’s half-baked idea.

I’m going to be writing on the collapse of oca.org later today. I’ll have graphs from Quantcast (one ALWAYS has to back up one’s assertions with third-party evidence in such cases) to illustrate my point. Here’s a foretaste… I have 21,000 “readers” a month (not “hits”… not “visits”… not “page-views”). Stokoe’s ocanews.org has 14,200 “readers” a month and oca.org has 18,800 “readers” a month. Cookie the Bookie sez, “Vara’s the favourite in all the races… put your money on her in the trifecta… the odds ain’t a long shot, but you’ll make your money fer shure”.

We’re not “at the beginning of the end”… Churchill was right… it’s “the end of the beginning”. This is the climax of the play… there’s still more to come. However, the outcome now isn’t in doubt… the OCA is going down for the count, the only question remaining is “when”. Do be kind to those who have seen their dream go up in flames. “I told you so” is NEVER good form… all it does is to embitter people unnecessarily and send them off into schism. No doubt, New Skete and SVS are going off into that limbo, but there are going to be many who won’t take such a step. Be kind to them… and prepare to be surprised to find out who’s naughty and who’s nice. If this plays out as events in the real world do, well, “truth IS stranger than fiction”. For instance, to take specific cases, one of my bets is that Lazar Puhalo and Vladimir Berzonsky will stay loyal to the Church, and that John Behr, Jonas Paffhausen, and Chad Hatfield will become American equivalents of Basil Osborne.

It’s NEVER boring in Orthodoxy in America, is it? Pass me the jug… and take a good slug yourself. Crazy world, ain’t it?
