29 August 2015. A Thought from Schema-Archimandrite Elder Zosima Sokur

00 elder zosima sokur 290815


I wrote this earlier:

Elder Zosima Sokur was the starets of ex-Ukrainian President V F Yanukovich. Viktor Fyodorovich wasn’t the amoral monster that lying Anglos (and turncoat Russians like Potapov) said he was. As Ukrainian pols went, he was actually LESS corrupt than most were. Yes, he was corrupt, and he never lost a chance to enrich himself, but he wasn’t as dishonest as Darlin’ Yuliya, the Klichko brothers, Turdchinov, the real-estate scammer Avakov, and the Rabbit were. Remember, Viktor Fyodorovich lifted the restrictions on the canonical Church… the Anglos and papists never forgave him for that. Viktor Fyodorovich cracked down on fascists… that angered the Anglos and the papists even more. Therefore, if you hear someone downing Viktor Fyodorovich, be aware that virtually all of them have agendas… or they’re paid quisling dogs like Potapov.

I’ll stand up for what I see as right… even if I stand alone, if needs must. That’s that…

I stand by it all today… by the way, Elder Zosima was from the Donetsk Land… I thought that you’d like to know that…


29 August 2015. O Lord God, I Will Praise Thy Name with Joy

My offering to all my priestly friends… “O Lord God, I will praise Thy Name with Joy” … what more need I add about what I think of the REAL priesthood?


29 August 2015. Why I Didn’t Run With the Cantrell Story Until Now

Actually, I first heard the Cantrell story (him not only jumping from the priesthood, but also him going from Christianity to Islam) about six days ago. However, it sounded like KKK (Krazy Konvert Komedy) to me at first. I had to check it out. I finally got the word I needed last night. I had to nail this one down hard… otherwise, it’d blow up in my face. I’m not an internet troll… the accuracy of what I post is important. That’s why I refuse to post ANYTHING from Fort Russ, the Saker, or “Colonel Cassad”… they’ve all proven shaky and purveyors of asshat rumour. Therefore, as far as war news goes, I stick to the main outlets… that way, I minimise clusterfucks (I can’t obviate them completely).

However, in re the Cantrell story, I can’t report it as POSITIVE until we all get OFFICIAL word. That’s my duty as a trusted conduit … to get it right the first time around. THERE IS NO OFFICIAL WORD. NONE. If Greg Sulich were still alive, this shit (not reporting at least something on such an important story) wouldn’t have happened. Greg was a good guy… he liked his hupaj siupaj and he liked his pivo. Salt of the earth… it proves that Lyonyo has his nicks in a knot and Jillions has his finger up his ass, clueless as usual. It shows that the Konvertadox Klown Kompany is vacuous and fatuous. They make gigundo noise… but they sure can prang ’em hard, can’t they? Pass the jug… a konvert priest becoming a Muslim… and oca.org simply drops his name from the clergy list with no comment. There was an obligation to post at least, “Matthew Cantrell is no longer a priest in good standing in the OCA as he is no longer a member of the OCA”. There. What’s so hard about that?

By the way… Maymon owes Fr John Bohush an apology… in public. Don’t hold your breath waiting… the konvertsy were silent about Podmoshensky, Storheim, Brittain, Colluzo, and now this guy Cantrell… can’t expect them to say, “I’m sorry for hurting you” to somebody legitimately hurt by the Church. Excuse me whilst I find a corner to be sick in. These asshats scream about “respect”… well, they’d get it if they proved themselves WORTHY of it… that’s all that there is to say.


29 August 2015. Why Did Maymon Persecute Fr John Bohush but Treated Matthew Cantrell with Kid Gloves?

I got this from several voices on the grapevine (here’s one):

Fr Matthew Cantrell… did you hear about him? This OCA priest converted to Islam. This is 100 percent true. Priests heard this at the diocesan meeting a few weeks back. Why hasn’t Mark suspended him while Fr John Bohush was? I still don’t know why no one is talking about this out loud.

I did some checking… Cantrell is no longer on the OCA clergy directory. There’s nothing on oca.org… in fact, the site appears to have problems and isn’t loading right (it isn’t my machine, for all other sites load normally). On the parish website, they still list him as being “on leave”. Cantrell was your usual “Pan-Orthodox” konvertsy fanatic, who liked prancing about in Greek and not Russian vestments (he was one of Dahulich’s drooling “holier than thou” disciples). For all of their “zeal”, they don’t appear to be very stable, are they? First, that groping konvertsy priest in Ohio, now, this… if this isn’t true, there’s a helluva lot of buzz out there. In the lack of official confirmation, I’ll give this a “highly probable”… it ain’t over till it’s over… we do need an official confirmation to put this one to bed (taking Jillions’ bone-idleness into account, since Greg Sulich is no longer there to cover his ass, that could take forever).

They TALK a good fight… but as far as FIGHTING a good fight… I’ll leave that one up to you…
