Robbery at ROCOR Cathedral in LA

Transfiguration Cathedral. Los Angeles CA


Editor’s Foreword:

There is NOTHING on this on the official ROCOR main website. Yet, there are reports on several Russian sources. They had FOUR DAYS to get this news up. If this doesn’t tell you the sclerotic condition of disunited Russian Orthodoxy in the USA, nothing will (the main official ROCOR website will put up a diatribe by Potapov against a relative tout suite, but it won’t report a theft at one of its major parishes). The First Families and their claque have been parasites on the Church long enough. I’m not the only one to notice this. By the way, in related news, Little Mizz Ginny Nieuwsma is back at the OCA website now, as a flack for Lyonyo and Mollard. That’s why the news isn’t reported. Incompetents report fluff of no consequence, whilst major occurrences go unnoticed. The news is reported halfway around the world, but not in its own backyard. What’s wrong with that picture?

We need a united Russian Orthodoxy in the diaspora now. The OCA, ROCOR, and the MP Abroad have to go… if SVS and Rue Daru want to go under the Greeks, let them. Good riddance to bad rubbish…



Unknown robbers struck the Transfiguration of the Saviour Cathedral (ROCOR) in Los Angeles CA. The thieves stole many items used at services, including sacred vessels and an altar cross. On Wednesday, the official MP website reported that preliminary estimates put the cost of the stolen items at more than 50,000 USD (1.53 million Roubles. 38,000 Euros. 31,000 UK Pounds). Currently, police are investigating the crime.

Editor’s Afterword:

How much more do you need? A major event occurs and a main website refused to post the news. Reflect on this… the webmaster accommodated Victor Potapov’s nasty outburst… but it refuses to post legit news. THAT speaks volumes… and the OCA’s website staff is just as crank. That’s a meaty bone on gnaw upon this Boxing Day
