I wrote this four years ago:
[Five] years ago, Eric Iliff died, supposedly a “suicide”, after having been sexually assaulted by a staff member at SVS. Today… remember his memory… light a candle… say a prayer… have Pannikhida said for him. Do NOT forget his tormentors… the main ones were Timothy Blumentritt and John Erickson. Erickson is still in good odour with the OCA apparat (indeed, Erickson’s the mentor of the strutting smarkach Oliver Herbel (the one who denies that St Peter the Aleut existed)… “birds of a feather”)… he’s not only an amoral monster, he’s an indifferentist heretic. Indeed, the unrepentant weasel just gave a lecture at a Uniate seminary in Pittsburgh… we shouldn’t even be in the same room with these imposters. They’re a dagger of the Roman Curia aimed directly at our hearts. Is it surprising? The good word has it that Erickson covered up the Iliff case… facts show that he consorts openly with our implacable Uniate foes (who attack the Church openly and relentlessly in the Ukraine). What a loser. Remember Eric… remember his Golgotha. Also, remember how his tormentors walk free… the OCA diehards applaud them. DO draw the proper conclusion.
Вечная ему память, раб божий Ерик Иванович…
NOTHING has changed, sadly enough, save for us to be mired still further in the same old pit. When you pray for Eric, or have Pannikhida said for him on the anniversary of his passing tomorrow, DO NOT FORGET HIS PARENTS JOHN AND MONICA. They didn’t deserve what happened to their son. His death was “convenient” to some in the apparat, wasn’t it? Oh, yes… the lawsuit against SVS “went away” with Eric’s death, didn’t it? I’d say, “Ask yourself, ‘cui bono?’ and connect the dots”. Follow the evidence… it’s a rum go, isn’t it?
Note well that those who tormented Eric all were (and are) in good odour at SVS (save for the sacrificial lamb, Blumentritt). Those who covered up Eric’s death also supported the convicted perv Storheim (and approved of his attorney’s tactic of smearing the victims as “mentally ill”… that’s SVS common tactic, after all). Follow the truth wherever it may lead you… be prepared for the “respectable” and the goodthinkers to hate you for it…
