21 July 2015. It’s Time to End the Kangaroo Court Against Fr John Bohush and Remove Mark Maymon IMMEDIATELY

01 Kicked Out

_______________________________

The best way to end l’affaire Bohush is to quash the bootless “spiritual court” against Fr John and to remove Maymon for having started it. Let’s not be coy. This isn’t what our parents in the Faith taught us! Archbishop Vitaly Maksimenko didn’t act like this! Bishop Kip didn’t act like this! Metropolitans Leonty and Afanassy didn’t act like this! Archbishop Averky Taushev didn’t act like this! Everybody knows how Vladyki Leonty and Vladyki Afanassy took care of problems… they had a sit-down and the problem was history, even before it caused any waves. Ask the folks in their 70s and 80s… they’ll tell you that I’m dealing the straight line here.

Real bishops know how to “bish”… well, Maymon proved TWICE that he doesn’t “have what it takes”. Firstly, he openly defied a direct order from his then-First Hierarch, Philip Saliba. Then, Fatso was dumb enough to bring him into the OCA. Now, Maymon instigated a witch-hunt against an innocent priest. He’s proven TWICE that he’s not episcopal timber. The OCA SOBs should remove this excuse for a bishop and apologise publicly to Fr John. I doubt that the above will happen. However, someone has to say it, and that’s my role in the Church discussion… to say things that others are too afraid to say or say things that priests/bishops can’t say because their position imposes certain limits on their public utterances.

JUSTICE for Fr John… and let justice be done on Maymon… what else is there to say?
