30 June 2014. A Whisper in the Loggia About JP and Podmo



One of the Cabinet said this about JP going to Podmo’s funeral:

He won’t go… that type “forgets” the past and expects us not to bring it up. He also doesn’t honour his friendships.

I quite agree. He, Brum, and Eliel were all close to Podmo, but all of them deny it today. Many believe that JP’s dad (a real estate developer) fronted the cash through JP to keep Platina running. However, all the konvertsy goodthinkers want you to believe that such wasn’t so. By the way, there’s no contemporaneous evidence that Alexei Young heard Rose “cursing” Podmo. I studied history in college, and one of the things that you learn is the pitfalls of oral history. People will very sincerely and without guile will tell you that “X” happened, but it didn’t… that is, if documentary evidence doesn’t back the claim, its hearsay, or worse. I believe Young’s statement to be a True Believer ex post facto rationalisation. Yes, they DO believe that it happened, as it validates their beliefs, and they’ll be QUITE sincere on the matter.

I believe that my friend is correct… JP lies continually, as the OCA Holy Synod knows… it’s one of the reasons they shitcanned him (remember that? He got the shitcan for continual fibs, changing his story more often than he changed his gotchies, overspending his budget, and bringing in a bunch of dubious nuns). He’s brazen, more fulla chutzpah than Groucho Marx and Bill Clinton combined, and all of his claque are the same way. ROCOR would be insane to bring such a sort within it… he’d do what he did in the OCA… talk big, spend big, and protect his goofball pals (like Nathanael Kapner… I saw the two schmoozing at Jordanville on Pentecost).

I wonder… did Stokoe write the Portal-Credo piece or did it come from Svetlana Veiss, Lyonyo’s pal? You can be sure that Vlad Berzansky Jr’s hand is in the pot somewhere, too… just another ordinary day in American Orthodoxy… do pass me the jug and take a hit yourself… all of the mean n’ nasties are gonna crawl outa their holes. God do preserve us…
