Matusiak Gives Evasive Answer on Taft Invite to SVS… Refuses to Condemn this Abomination

00 eastern ukraine. 10.05.14

Our people mourn their dead murdered by Uniate fascists… SVS invites a Uniate to speak… one of these things is NOT like the other!

______________________________

Editor’s IMPORTANT Preface:

I have many contacts, and many of them pass on items from others (I know who’s the conduit for what bishop, for instance). After all, many Cabinet submissions are forwards from other people. Tosi should watch his step. I had nothing to do with this. He’ll blame the wrong people again, assuming that this one or that one sent it on to me. Remember… I have many contacts, both lay and clerical. Is this item newsworthy? You bet! Tosi had best keep his hands off the original writer (I do have copies of the original correspondence). Matusiak’s not overly bright… neither are Tosi or Jillions. God do help the suffering people of the OCA.

I did track down the original recipient of Matusiak’s e-mail, and I have full permission to publicise it (I checked with a lawyer on this one, knowing Syosset’s habit of legally harassing its critics).

An Orthodox layperson wrote oca.org to complain against the Uniate poseur Taft speaking at SVS. John Matusiak replied:

It would be more appropriate for you to direct your concern to Saint Vladimir’s Seminary. It is the seminary, not the OCA, that is hosting the speaker who, if I am not mistaken, was not personally involved in the travesty committed in 1944.

In Christ,

Father John Matusiak, OCA Q&As

Firstly, Matusiak should understand that SVS is a stavropegial institution of the OCA… therefore, if SVS invites Uniate scum to speak… then, the OCA invites Uniate scum to speak. Furthermore, as SVS is under the direct authority of the First Hierarch, it means that if SVS invites Uniate scum to speak, well, Tikhon Mollard’s inviting Uniate scum to speak. The Uniates are the implacable enemies of Christ’s Church, as the Dom Profsoyuzov fire shows to all, even the slow learners. For SVS to invite Robert Taft… a Jesuit masquerading as an archimandrite… to speak is the same as trampling upon the icon of Christ and spitting on it in public for all to see. It’s denies the Church’s Reality that we affirm every time that we recite the Creed.

Oh, one last detail, Matusiak… the massacre at Khatyn took place in 1943… not 1944. Bob Taft didn’t personally take part in that, no… but he spent his whole career in the Vatican hobnobbing with those who did and blessed similar things (like the unrepentant Nazi collaborator monster Slipy), and it bothered him not one little bit, no sir! Your answer nauseated me, sir… I’ll say no more… for your answer was one of the worst blasphemies that I’ve ever seen in my life.

May God see and judge this…

Alfeyev sez Religious Tensions Deepen Ukraine Splits

00 odessa profsoyuz 01, 05.05.14

_______________________________

On Friday, Metropolitan Ilarion Alfeyev, head of the MP Synodal Department for External Church Relations (OVTsS), in an interview at his office in Moscow’s Danilovsky Monastery, said, “Other churches clearly lined up behind the Kiev government and differences are behind its decision to refuse me entry to the Ukraine last week. Religious tensions are deepening dividing lines in the Ukrainian crisis, with rival churches taking political sides, and Kiev slighting the MP. Our Church, which has broad support in the Russian-speaking eastern Ukraine, doesn’t take sides and wants to play a mediating role in the crisis. However, I doubt the others would see us as impartial. This lack of sympathy, unfortunately, is mutual”.

The MP’s critics certainly don’t see it as neutral in the crisis. Its head, Patriarch Kirill Gundyaev of Moscow and all the Russias, is close to President Vladimir Putin, and supports his drive to forge closer ties with former Soviet regions outside Russia. However, Ilarion said, “The Church has contacts in the Ukraine that the Kremlin lacks, including between Patriarch Kirill and President (sic) Aleksandr Turchinov. However, the government didn’t appear interested in the offer of mediation”. Kiev’s sensitivity to the activities of Russian church leaders was clearly on display on 9 May when it banned Ilarion from entering the country after flying into Dnepropetrovsk to give a local bishop an award on his 75th birthday. After they detained him for more than two hours, officials told Ilarion that he couldn’t pass border control and had to give the waiting bishop his award at the airport. He said, “This as a political decision with religious overtones. The people now running the Ukraine don’t belong to the Russian Orthodox Church. Yatsenyuk is a Greek Catholic (sic) {he’s a practising Scientologist pretending to be Uniate… his sister in the USA is an open Scientologist: editor} and Turchinov is a Baptist {he’s an apostate who left the Church for “Evangelical” heresy: editor}”.

Historic Divisions

The Ukraine has a chequered religious landscape. Alongside the Moscow-backed Ukrainian Orthodox Church are a breakaway Kiev-based Ukrainian Orthodox “Church” and another local Orthodox movement… both of which are schismatical in the eyes of all canonical Local Churches… and the Greek Catholic Church, linked to Rome. The Moscow-backed Church covers the entire Ukraine, but it’s strongest in the east, whilst the schismatical Orthodox and the Greek Catholics are more in the centre and west, where Ukrainian language and national sentiment are stronger. Priests from the schismatical Orthodox bodies and the Greek Catholics, who follow Orthodox-style worship, but are in communion with the Vatican, played a visible role during the protests in Kiev that led to the ousting of pro-Moscow president Viktor Yanukovich in February.

Ilarion said, “The Ukraine’s crisis isn’t religious in nature, but the situation with religious communities in the Ukraine somewhat reflects the divisions within the Ukrainian nation. The Greek Catholic Church and the schismatical groups clearly identified themselves with the current régime. Uniates always go against the Russian Orthodox Church; their goal is to subordinate all Ukrainian churches to the pope”. Eastern Catholic churches such as the Ukrainian Greek Catholics emerged in the 16th century. The Orthodox long accused them of trying to win over souls for Rome.

On Friday, the MP issued a statement offering its services as a mediator in the Ukrainian conflict, responding to Luxembourg Foreign Minister Jean Asselborn’s suggestion that religious communities play a part in seeking a solution. It echoed the tensions Ilarion mentioned, accusing other churches of exploiting “the sincere religious feelings of deeply pious Ukrainian people as a tool in a political struggle”.

Editor:

Note this (and it’s a QUOTE):

Uniates always go against the Russian Orthodox Church; their goal is to subordinate all Ukrainian churches to the pope.

That means that SVS’ invitation of Robert Taft, a known papist perverter of the Orthodox liturgy, to speak there is blasphemous. Someone at the Centre should pass that info on to someone important like Balashov… maybe, it could stop this iniquity before it happens. To invite a Uniate to speak when Uniates are shouting, ”Knife the Moskali!” is beyond all words. Satan laughs. If you support inviting Uniates to speak in Orthodox venues you spit on Christ and His Church… you dishonour the memory of those killed in the Ukraine by Uniate and schismatical fascists. “Fascists Out!”, I say… and I’m NOT alone.

Scandal Erupts Between Moscow and Kiev: Metropolitan Ilarion Alfeyev “Persona Non Grata” in the Ukraine

01 Legal use of force cop

______________________________

The Ukraine’s refusal to allow the MP’s “foreign minister”, Metropolitan Ilarion Alfeyev of Volokolamsk, to enter the country raised yet another diplomatic row between Kiev and the Russian Federation, casting shadows on the fate of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church. On 9 May, Ukrainian border control denied Alfeyev, one of the most senior MP clerics, the chairman of the Synodal Department for External Church Relations (OVTsS), entry at the border and forced him to return to Russia. Arriving at Dnepropetrovsk airport, customs officials stopped Ilarion at passport control, then, the authorities showed him an official note prohibiting him from entering the Ukraine. The OVTsS reported that they provided no further explanation. Ilarion was to take part in celebrations for the 75th birthday of Metropolitan Irinei Seredny of Dnepropetrovsk and Pavlograd, representing Patriarch Kirill Gundyaev of Moscow and all the Russias. Ilarion read Kirill’s message of birthday greetings to Irinei in a room at the airport.

The MP strongly condemned the episode, calling it “an attempt to transfer the civil and political conflict in the Ukraine to the religious sphere”. Ilarion, who said that he was “surprised”, warned, “What happened raises many questions, because the Church only carries out a peaceful mission”. Archpriest Igor Yakimchuk, who accompanied Ilarion, told Kommersant, “Whoever made that decision didn’t act very wisely, because the Church is outside politics. The Patriarchate will take measures in response to the incident, although it still isn’t clear what”. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MID) also intervened. It demanded an apology and “exhaustive explanations” from the Ukrainian authorities, branding the episode as a “provocative and unprecedented” act. The MID stated, “Moscow’s worried by continuous measures from the current régime in Kiev, which only contribute to the further destabilisation of the situation in the country. Today, the canonical Orthodox Church has become their target”. After several days of silence, the Ukrainian Ministry of Foreign Affairs distanced itself from the incident. Spokesman Yevgeni Perebyinis said, “The right to entry is up to the Border Service”.

Since last month, the Ukraine “temporarily” banned entry to Russian citizens aged between 16 and 60 years-old, for reasons related to the deteriorating situation in the eastern regions of the country (sic). Another sign that diplomatic tension’s intensifying around the state of the Orthodox Church regards Metropolitan Agafangel Savvin of Odessa and Izmail, who’s been missing since last week. According to the online newspaper Rupor Odessy, citing official diocesan sources, the bishop left town on a previously planned “holiday”, but didn’t specify where he now is.

Regions Deputies Leave Rada Session to Protest Junta Repressions… Kolomoisky Threatens Tsaryov… All Quiet in Slavyansk

00 lugansk. donbass peoples opolchenie. 15.05.14

______________________________

The Party of Regions faction in the Rada left the hall to protest junta military repressions in the eastern “Ukraine”. Aleksandr Yefremov, chairman of the Regions Rada faction, told junta chieftain Aleksandr Turchinov, “I’ve heard one thing from the right side of the session hall for many years… that the main thing in our state is people and human rights. Now, they’re killing people in the eastern Ukraine … We asked you to halt the anti-terrorist operation (sic), but you pretended that nothing’s happening. The Party of Regions believes that to work in the session in this situation is a supreme manifestation of hypocrisy. We’re leaving the hall”. After that, all the Regions Rada People’s Deputies left the hall.

******

Interfax reported that Valery Blagodetelyov, spokesman of Slavyansk People’s Mayor Vyacheslav Ponomaryov, said the statement of junta chieftain Aleksandr Turchinov claiming that junta forces destroyed opolchenie strongpoints and secured the site around a TV tower was ludicrous. He said, “We deny Turchinov’s statement. All bases and strongpoints are still under our control. The statement about ‘mopping-up’ the area near the TV tower is also far-fetched. We’ve never deployed forces at that place. Junta forces occupy the tower’s site sporadically. We just keep an eye on them”.

An audio recording of a phone conversation between oligarch and Governor of Dnepropetrovsk Oblast Igor Kolomoisky and Oleg Tsaryov made by unknown persons appeared on the internet. The caption to the posted recording said that the conversation took place late at night on 10 May 2014, and former SBU officers calling themselves the Joint Cyber-Militia of Donetsk, Lugansk, and Kharkov Oblasts recorded it. In addition, another audio record posted online proves that Kolomoisky personally ordered the Odessa massacre. As Chelovek-Online reported, Oleg Tsaryov confirmed that the phone chat was authentic.

Igor Kolomoisky

Howdy!

Oleg Tsaryov

Hi!

Kolomoisky

Where are you? Same place?

Tsaryov 

Yeah.

Kolomoisky

How goes it?

Tsaryov

Okay.

Kolomoisky 

Listen; there was a bad mess here. Someone killed a Jew from the Dnepropetrovsk community.

Tsaryov 

What’s up there?

Kolomoisky

Someone killed a Jew from the Dnepropetrovsk community. I’m in the synagogue now.

Tsaryov 

What did he do there?

Kolomoisky

Never mind what he did. They say they’re promising **** big bucks for your head now.

Tsaryov 

My head?

Kolomoisky

Yeah. One million bucks. They say they’d hunt you down anywhere. I’ve let you know. Stay in Moscow… don’t go anywhere.

Tsaryov 

I want to tell you something. In Africa, there are some…

Kolomoisky

They’ll hunt down your associates too.

Tsaryov

In Africa, there is such a … such a poison…

Kolomoisky

Listen, bollocks to what’s in Africa. Stop spinning yarns to me. I tell you, there was a prayer in the synagogue on the eve of Shabbat. Pray for that man, comrade Shlemkevitch, a Jew killed in Mariupol, *****

Tsaryov

That’s how it is then.

Kolomoisky

They say that Tsaryov’s to blame ****. Tomorrow, your people will be the cock-shot here. You tell them to get the *****out of here. We’re going to hang them right in the square. You know, tell Markov not to come here either… to the Ukraine… under any circumstances. Got it?

Tsaryov

Don’t call me anymore, Igor.

Kolomoisky

You don’t want me to call? Okay. See ya.

Tsaryov

Bye, see ya.

RT reported that two junta APCs fired at a car carrying RT Ruptly video journalists near Kramatorsk. The team and a crew from Channel 5, another Russian TV network, were in the same car heading to the town of Dmitrovka, as APCs “came out of nowhere” and “opened fire for no clear reason”. The bullets didn’t hit the car. Earlier, junta forces shot freelance videojournalist Fyodor Zavaleykov, 23, of the RT Ruptly team, in the abdomen whilst he was covering military operations in Mariupol. According to RT, he received serious wounds on 9 May whilst trying to film junta forces’ assault on the Mariupol police building. Three days later, after negotiations with junta authorities failed to allow a German medical jet to land in Mariupol, the reporter went to Moscow for treatment.

Editor:

Note well that the junta pigs didn’t allow a medical jet from the EU to evacuate a newsman. That tells you much about them, their Langley and Vatican sugar daddies, and the Americans who urge on the Uniate trash by sucking up to them (especially, certain “Orthodox” seminaries!).

Editor:

If I could, I’d say to Dmitri Kiselyov that there are people amongst the VOR staff who suck up to the West. The dead giveaway in the posts on the Ukraine is that such people use the Galician hillbilly dialect names for people and places, not proper Russian usage (the Galician dialect is a backwoods patois, not suitable for formal use on a news site). Thus, it’s “Aleksandr Turchinov”, “Lugansk”, “Yuliya Timoshenko”, or “Kiev”… anyone who refuses to use proper Russian transliteration is spitting on the Russian state’s POV and supporting that of the junta pigs. Of course, one can have one’s opinions… but one can’t spout viewpoints opposite to those of the Russian state on a Russian state broadcaster… that seems logical to me. Besides, that I’d urge the use of the traditional “the Ukraine” in all English writing… “Ukraine” came about by mewling Uniate activists in the 90s, who threw spoilt-children tantrums if people continued to use the traditional and correct English usage (they’d run to their American and Vatican protectors and scream “hate speech”). It’s “the Ukraine” for the same reason we say “the Netherlands”… the first is “the borderlands”, the second is “the lowlands”. That’s what I see, any road.
