The recent brouhaha in Alaska over a dippy convert priest abusing kids (the Alaska State Police are investigating… it isn’t allegations) is an all-too-common thing amongst us. This didn’t happen in the old Metropolia days… you didn’t find this amongst the po-nashemu folks or Alaska Natives. However, the Anglos have brought in all sorts of pathology… they claim that they can smell out pervs, but I’d say that their gaydar is FUBAR. Seraphim Storheim did get convicted in a court of law… you can’t deny that. You can’t deny that his scumbag mouthpiece, Jeff Gindin, tried to trash the reputations of Storheim’s victims in court. Note how all the konvertsy jumped to Storheim’s defence. I’d still say that the Church should defrock all “clergy” with HOOM or CSB ties… they’re bad seed.
In like manner, the Church shouldn’t be considering questionable people like Brum or Eliel as bishops. Eliel lacked credentialisation until SVS recently granted him a degree under dubious circumstances (furthermore, anointed him head of the class)… don’t forget Eliel dropped out of GTU with Fatso and Brum. All that Eliel has is an MDiv… not enough education for a bishop. Bishops should have a kandidatura from an Orthodox institution (that’s the MP standard). Brum lacks Orthodox formation… that should eliminate him right from the git-go. To top that, he’s the author of the heretical anti-Orthodox “Brum Doctrine”… that the Metropolitan of the OCA is an absolute tinhorn dictator. That is, Brum never converted in his heart-of-hearts, and he remains papist to the bone. Add in that these two were confederates of such questionable sorts as Paffhausen and Podmoshensky, well, that seals the deal. These idiots are TROUBLE waiting to happen.
