Don’t be unkind to the True Believers… how would YOU react if you saw all of your dreams implode and die before your eyes?
One of the Cabinet sent me this:
Some say that Archbishop Nathaniel is next… some gay stories are being told. It’s every man for himself. They’re scratching and snarling at one another whilst Melchisedek is in Italy at a conference with bishops from all over the Church, including the MP. Interesting, isn’t it?
This is what’s out there, kids. At this point of the game, no one truly knows what’s going on. NO ONE DOES. Not me… not Lyonyo… not the Metoropolitan Council… not SVS… not Jillions… not Vlad Berzansky Jr… NO ONE. We do know that the last “news” posted on oca.org was on Thursday, and it was pure fluff, with no relation to the real-world dissolution of the OCA. It’s long been an “open secret” about the penetration of the OCA clergy by closeted poofters, and the cultish ignorance of the konvertsy is also equally well-known (the worst are former Anglican nutters like Freddie M-G and Patrick Reardon). All of the stories are coming home to roost, and some of the birds on the wire are very heavy, indeed.
Another Cabinet member sent me this titbit:
People couldn’t believe Dahulich. He’s is looking for new role for JP.
Again, is this intel surprising? Dahulich is one of JP’s coterie; he supports many of JP’s nutter causes. JP’s toast, as all too many of us know of his intimate relationship (in more ways than one) with Gleb Podmoshensky. Podmoshensky’s the guru of all the loudmouth konvertsy, and it’s interesting to see Dreher trying to deny his ties to him (he has ‘em through Freddie M-G… both were seen in Platina by witnesses). Anyone who calls Pavel Florensky a saint is either a direct or indirect disciple of Podmoshensky… Podmoshensky’s the most wicked and corrosive éminence grise in American Orthodoxy… there’s no one worse… not Schmemann… not Greene… not Metropoulos… not Ustinov… not Lyonyo.
However, don’t be harsh on rank n’ file autocephalists… they’re seeing their world collapse about their ears and some are seeing the labour of a lifetime dissolving without a trace. Be kind… that’s the Christian way. I’m told that Mark Stokoe didn’t want to “chronicle the end of the OCA”. Yet, if we find him floundering, it’s our duty to throw him a lifeline. After the lies tossed at him by JP and his coterie, it’s only humane. Remember, the Church does NOT agree with the papists and sectarians on many moral issues (marriage and artificial birth control are two salient examples)… it’s why we’re the Church, and why they aren’t.
Actually, it’s going to get more “interesting” and murky in the immediate short term. Will there even be a Sobor in November? God only knows…
