10 July 2015. Yes, Many People are Telling Me About Moriak… DON’T TALK TO ME… COMPLAIN TO THE OCA SOBs!

01 woman on phone


Firstly, I’d like to thank the literally dozens of people who’ve e-mailed to tell me about the Moriak situation. I haven’t posted on it as Mel and Cappie have, and they’ve done their usual good job, so, I concluded that my two-cents weren’t necessary (they’re more expert on this topic than I am). For those of you not aware of the kerfuffle, click here. This link confirms it. Now, what can you do about it that’ll do some real good? Firstly, don’t e-mail me… I’m not against your comments (you should tell me of this-or-that, as I’m not a tightassed know-all like Odd Rod), but I can’t do anything of this situation. E-mail the OCA SOBs! Get your priest to do it too! Write ’em snail mail! Call ’em on the phone! Trust me… the last thing that they want is publicity, as it might up their insurance rates if their insurer found out that they were still employing a known perv. If they refuse to act, pass the story on to the media… they LOVE stories like this one… “CHURCH ASSIGNS KNOWN ABUSER TO PARISH WORK”. That’d send their insurance rates into the stratosphere.

I’ll say this… Bernie has electrified people, as he shook up the political establishment. If the Centre were to put up a White Hat (meant both as Metropolitan and general good guy) like Mark Golovkov as the head of a new ROCOR consisting of the ROCOR, OCA, and MP abroad… people would jump on it for the same reason that people are supporting the Bern. People don’t want any more of the same old corrupt bullshit and clerical escapades. Note well that Odd Rod is silent (and accepting of those, as he’s part of Fatso’s circle) about that… “exiles in our own country”, indeed! Let’s look at ourselves first of all!

Give them no peace, kids… keep pesterin’ ’em until they get rid of the pestilent bastard, that’s my advice…



10 July 2015. A Thought from Monk Simeon of Mt Athos

00 forest peace. monk simeon. 100715


I used “pettifoggers” for постники (literally, “fasters”) in the original. My translator’s instincts told me that Monk Simeon condemned an attitude, not an action, so, “pettifogger” was the correct choice, as he excoriated (and rightly so) an unscrupulous, juridical, and unethical approach to fasting (and to religion in general, one could take this as a jab at pietistic “religious hobbyists”). Of course, he wasn’t condemning fasting per se.


10 July 2015. Bernie Throws Down the Gauntlet to the Oligarchs, Media, and Chilly Hilly Fans

Bernie’s stated the obvious. Do note that Chilly Hilly’s crazed greedy and grasping fanboys are attacking Bernie worse than the righties are.


You CAN vote for a change! (meant two ways… you can vote for change… and you can get out and vote, for there’s a real choice this time).
