Tikhon Shevkunov is a loose cannon. His website Pravoslavie is NOT official… much on it (especially, in English) is Convertadox rubbish (one Jesse Dominick, a well-known konvertsy loudmouth, works on that side of the operation). The OCA Holy Synod of Bishops should formally petition HH to have the offensive post about the “incorruptibility” of Dmitri Royster on Pravoslavie taken down permanently. Jesse Dominick knew what the OCA Synod wanted in the case of this affair… he’s a disobedient little twit like Grigorenko (besides being a supporter of the American rightwing enemies of the Church)… he refused to follow the spirit of the OCA SOBs order. Ergo, the OCA SOBs should approach HH with the formal request that HH force Pravoslavie to take the offensive post down and destroy all images. It tells us much about Tikhon Shevkunov, Jesse Dominick, and the whole Pravoslavie operation. Shevkunov isn’t as important as the konvertsy imagine. He’s a powerless vicar bishop who has tread only because he’s the confessor to the Putin family and because of his ties to pro-Western oligarchs. Never forget that Shevkunov doesn’t have a kandidatura in theology… his higher education was at a film institute (thus, his slick public persona, which fools all the superficial and shallow konvertsy). Shevkunov’s main claim to fame is his website… which isn’t official, not in the least!
Have a care… much that glitters isn’t real… much that’s real, doesn’t glitter. Keep it focused…
