5 April 2013. More from the Cabinet on Kryštof’s Canoodling…

00 Krystof card. 05.04.13


01 JP and Krystof

In all of its low-res glory, here’s a snap of Kryštof with his bosom pal, JP… shitbirds of a feather flock together…


Got this from the Cabinet:

  1. In Orthodox Christianity, ANY fornication is a mortal sin. It’s much more than “violating monastic vows“.
  2. He’s not popular because he’s a Renovationist. He’s foisted the “New Pascha” in a few places in Carpatho-Russia, and this has ticked-off A LOT of the more serious believers. They do NOT want to become “little Finland“.
  3. Well… thank God, it was women, not children/little altar boys.


Don’t forget, JP had a more-than-decade-long dalliance with the proven sodomite Gleb Podmoshensky. If like calls unto like, and it does, what does that tell you about JP and Kryštof?


This Just In Department:

One of the Inner Cabinet whispered this:

Czech Old Catholic {KP‘s father was an Old Catholic priest: editor} convert Kryštof? He’s like the American Episcopalian convert Jonah. The bitter fruit of modernism, Kryštof is Anthony Bloom No 2.

A better description, I couldn’t give.



5 April 2013. The Cabinet on the Lent and REAL Fasting Food

Red-dyed Easter eggs from Belarus


This post of yours reminds me of something I’ve pondered over the years. This salad is real food. One thing I’ve noticed over the years is there’s often a correlation between how long someone’s been Orthodox and how much of the fake stuff (soy cheese, soy milk, fake meat, etc) someone uses while fasting. It seems the less time they’ve been Orthodox, the more of this shit they eat. Some of the konvertsy stay in this mindset for years. I once scandalised a new konvertsy by offhand mention of my lunch… I’d had a McDonald’s Filet-o-Fish during Lent. Oh, the horrors!

Of course, this is just another example of how the konvertsy think their (modern) ways are best. The traditionally-Orthodox countries have been doing the Lenten thing for centuries, so, there are many recipes to be had out there on the ‘net. However, do the konvertsy take advantage of this wonderful Orthodox culinary heritage? NO! Aside from hummus and pita bread, that is. They’d rather eat the soy crap rather than real food.

This is just another example of the konvertsy rejecting everything culturally Orthodox. You should see some of the crap konvertsy bring to church to be blessed on Easter. No kulich, no cheese paskha, no red-dyed eggs. They whine, “It’s too difficult”. Puhlease.


This is truth… nothing for sinful ol’ me to add…


Pope Francisco Vows to Grapple with Sex Abuse

00 Pope Francisco Bergoglio. 14.03.13


On Friday, Pope Francisco Bergoglio urged Vatican congregations to act “with determination” against sexual abuse committed by members of the Catholic clergy, the Holy See said in a statement, the pope’s first public pronouncement on the topic. The Vatican said, referring to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, which handles such cases, after the pope met with its director, “In particular, the Holy Father asked that the congregation … act with determination in cases of sexual abuse”.

The Catholic Archbishop of Durban, Wilfrid Fox Napier, described paedophilia as a psychological “illness, not a criminal condition”. The South African cardinal told the BBC that people who were themselves abused as children, and, then, abused others, need to be examined by doctors. He was one of 115 cardinals who took part in the Vatican conclave that elected Pope Francisco.

Recently, clerical sexual abuse scandals have dogged the Catholic Church. In an interview with the Stephen Nolan programme on BBC Radio 5 Live, Cardinal Napier referred to paedophilia as “a psychological condition, a disorder. What do you do with disorders? You’ve got to try and put them right. If I… as a normal being… choose to break the law, knowing that I’m breaking the law, then I think I need to be punished”. He said he knew at least two priests, who became paedophiles after themselves being abused as children, adding, “Now, don’t tell me that those people are criminally responsible like somebody who chooses to do something like that. I don’t think you can really take the position and say that person deserves to be punished. He was himself damaged”.

Cardinal Napier’s comments triggered immediate criticism. Barbara Dorries, who was abused by a priest when she was a child, works for the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, based in Chicago IL. She told the BBC, “If it’s a disease, that’s fine, but it’s also a crime, and crimes are punished, criminals are held accountable for what they did and what they do. The bishops and the cardinals have gone to great lengths to cover these crimes to enable the predators to move on, to not be arrested, and to keep the secrets within the church”.

Michael Walsh, who wrote a biography of late Pope John Paul II Wojtyła, said Cardinal Napier’s remarks were similar to the position once taken by the Catholic Church in the UK and the USA. Mr Walsh told the BBC, “At one time, they actually believed it was a condition that could be dealt with. Many bishops were simply moving priests and trying to disguise the fact that they’d been committing these crimes”. Marie Collins, who was a victim of abuse, told the BBC, “I think it’s appalling that we have a cardinal, a man at this level in the church, that can still hold these views. He’s totally ignoring the child”.

Czech/Slovak Orthodox First Hierarch Suspected of Violating Monastic Vows by Having Sex with Women



On Thursday, Jaroslav Suvarsky, head of the Archpastoral Council of the Orthodox Church of all Czechia and Slovakia, told ČTK that the Church’s First Hierarch, Metropolitan Kryštof Pulec, has until mid-May to refute the suspicion that he violated his vows as a monk by having sex with women. Bishop Simeon Jakovljević of BrnoOlomouc in Morava will be locum tenens for Kryštof until then {interestingly, Simeon disputed Kryštof’s election as First Hierarch in 2006… could this be Round Two of that battle?: editor}. For instance, now, Kryštof can’t sign agreements or contracts on behalf of the Church.

TV Nova reported that Kryštof, Archbishop of Prague (Praha) and First Hierarch of the Local Church of all Czechia and Slovakia, has had several girlfriends with whom he has children. It said that the Holy Synod of the Local Church discussed the issue at an extraordinary meeting on Wednesday. Suvarsky said that the synod “urged First Hierarch Kryštof to refute the accusations by its next meeting”, adding that the synod will meet again in mid-May. According to Nova, the Church accused Kryštof of having sex with a priest’s wife for seven years. In addition, she isn’t the only woman with whom Kryštof committed a sin. He fathered children with others, maybe up to ten of them, the synod said, cited by Nova. Kryštof said that he has two daughters, both born before he took an oath as a monk.

Kryštof said that the accusation might have links to an in-process property settlement between the Czech state and churches, of which 1.14 billion Koruna (1.82 billion Roubles. 57 million USD. 44 million Euros. 37 million UK Pounds) is to go to the Orthodox Church. On Thursday, Kryštof told TV Nova, “Some would like the money to be spent exclusively on humanitarian projects for seniors, ill people, and children. Others, however, say that the money should be deposited in funds to draw more money for priests’ [pay]”. There are about 100,000 Orthodox believers amongst 10.5-million Czechs. The number has risen, mainly due to the arrival of immigrants from the Ukraine and other countries with an Orthodox majority.
