5 September 2012. “It’s Deja Vu, All Over Again”… It’s All So Friggin’ SORDID


We all know that OCA Bishop Matthias Moriak was suspended some time ago. Finally, oca.org commented on it all:

Statement Issued by OCA Chancery

On 24 August 2012, an allegation of misconduct was received at the Chancery concerning His Grace, Bishop Matthias, Bishop of Chicago and the Diocese of the Midwest. The allegation centres on how certain telephone and text communications directed by His Grace to an adult woman member of the OCA were understood to have been intended. There are no allegations involving physical contact or criminal conduct. Even so, in accordance with church policies, the bishop is on administrative leave while the investigation proceeds.

One of the Cabinet disgustedly wrote:

You mean to tell me that they couldn’t get this miserable statement out 8 days ago? Seriously? What’s WRONG with these people! Also, note how they’re trying to bury it with an insipid, nondescript title, Statement issued by OCA Chancery. Hey, how about, Chancery Statement on Bishop Matthias, or something like that? Oh no, that would only call attention to this matter we’re desperately trying to hide! Well, newsflash, geniuses… it’s already made the mainstream press. When will they learn to beat gossip and reporting by coming clean up front? Who’s responsible for this delay?

I wrote to another Cabinet member:

That’s ridiculous. However, all that this stuff will do is piss people off about Syosset (and Lyonyo and Jillions). I’ll get to it later… it’s just another “Slowpoke Matusiak” story. Do you understand why I enjoy covering Team Russia at the Paralympics and dread all the OCA shit? Maybe, we should have that Greek powerlifter and that Russian discus thrower go to Syosset and “clean house”… they’re REAL Orthodox guys, after all!

It’s all so SORDID…

Who’s responsible for this state of affairs? It’s the same ol’ gang… Lyonyo… his sockpuppet Jillions… Tosi… John Behr… apparatchiki like Piggy Iggy Burdikoff… Benjamin Peterson… Michael Dahulich. They’re so slow because they’re fighting amongst themselves and the lawyers are really running the show. Quite frankly, the parishes gave up on this set of creepozoids a long time ago. I’ll say this… if Lyonyo, Peterson, Tosi, and Dahulich think that they can convene a packed Sobor, they’d best think again. As I wrote my friend, It’s all so SORDID. I feel like I’ve been mucking out a byre in a nonstop shit-storm. I think that I’m not alone… to paraphrase Marx…“A spectre is haunting the OCA; the spectre of the truth”.

The truth WILL set you free from the shackles of Syoset… but only if you let it…

This Just In Department:

A Cabinet member said:

Yes, pissing me off was precisely the effect this had on me. I’m sure that’s true of many, many others. I’m with you! Let’s all chip in to fly that powerlifter and that discus thrower to New York! The money would be better spent in that than in assessments.

Could you see Lyonyo shittin’ his skivvies if Aleksei Ashapatov were to show up with discus in hand (he is over two metres tall, by the way)? I’d PAY to see that!
