5 May 2015. Bart’s Crew Antsy Over Sobor Preparations

00 Glittersnipe.com. Get Your Shit Together. 2013

____________________________

Well, we had HH saying that there were difficulties and intrigues at the preparation for the notional Istanbul all-Orthodox Sobor. Read this… OUCH! Bart’s bunch has their knicks in a knot. Let’s not be coy… Bart’s crew of losers doesn’t accept the OCA or the Czechs as autocephalous Local Churches. I did some asking around… not only did I get this link (I can’t catch everything, of course)… many think that HH sending Onufry Berezovsky to the OCA Sobor in July is a “Message to the Phanar”. No one can sue me for stating what’s out there. I don’t know what went on in Switzerland… but HH is on record as saying it was difficult and this post just nailed it down. Actually, the Phanar was stupid in doing this… it just reinforced in everyone’s mind the notion that a hellova smell ensued in them thar hills. Look at this:

The Committee’s deliberations took place in a spirit of fraternal love and constructive dialogue.

In Diplomatese, it means that all parties had a good food fight that didn’t degenerate into a Texas Steel Cage Death Match (that’s what happens when diplomats say that they’ve spoken “frankly”). In short, the Phanar showed its WEAKNESS. A strong party would’ve ignored it and the internet brouhaha would’ve dissipated in a week or so. My take is that the agenda isn’t nailed down… there’s more than a little disagreement on that… on top of the fact that neither the MP or EP have agreed to seat all the other’s delegations. This looks more n’ more like a “no go”… the Centre will insist on the OCA and the Czechs being there. Who’ll blink first? Well… if the fascist junta in the Ukraine goes down the shitter… you can see where I’m going. Bart will find that being a Friend of Langley only goes so far…

Patriarch Kirill Thanked Pope Francisco for His Balanced Stance on the Ukraine

Blasphemous Galician Uniate “icon”

On Thursday, at a ceremony bestowing an honorary degree upon him at the Diplomatic Academy of the Russian Federation, Patriarch Kirill Gundyaev of Moscow and all the Russias thanked the Vatican for its position on the situation in the Ukraine, “Francisco the Pope of Rome and the State Secretariat of the Holy See maintained a balanced position on the Ukrainian situation, avoiding unilateral judgements and calling for an end to fratricidal war. This position coincides with our position in the Moscow Patriarchate. This is very important because, as we know, in the Ukraine, the Greek Catholics and schismatics take a bigoted position, they pour oil onto the fire, they incite vicious feelings, they play off one against each other, calling it ‘protection of national interests’, they arrange ‘witch hunts’, and they seize Orthodox churches… so, they’re not forces for peace, they’re ideological factions, serving only one side of the civil conflict. Today, only the UPTs/MP has the standing to be a peacemaker, precisely because it’s always stood firmly for positions advocating peace”.

Patriarch Kirill Regrets that Intrigue Accompanies Preparations for the all-Orthodox Sobor

________________________________

On Thursday, at a ceremony bestowing an honorary degree upon him at the Diplomatic Academy of the Russian Federation, Patriarch Kirill Gundyaev of Moscow and all the Russias said that the all-Orthodox Sobor set for Istanbul in 2016 will still be held, but its preparation hasn’t been easy. He said, “If everything goes according to plan, the Sobor will take place in 2016″. He pointed up that this historic forum would address topics related to the relation between Church and society, to address the concerns of believers on the issues of the day, “As always, around important historical events, there’s some intrigue, some hidden agendas, with some trying to influence the outcome, including some political forces. This faces all of us, especially, with the crisis in the Ukraine”. He also touched upon the Middle East, commenting that a large-scale exodus of Christians from the region would violate local stability, creating a breeding ground for extremism, “In Syria, [terrorists] destroyed 400 Christian churches just because they didn’t like the fact that the country historically has harboured a Christian community”.

5 May 2015. You Can’t Make Up Shit Like This Department… Junta Media Claims HH is Blessing Aggressive War! You Can Believe It! The Uniates Say So!

Read this. Crazy ain’t it? It certainly bears out the idea that the junta isn’t long for this world, but the old saw about the Gods and how they make people mad before they dispatch them goes to ridiculous extremes here. I needn’t go on and on. OCA people… if this is what the junta media is spitting out, I’d do some checking to see whether Vladyki Onufry is coming with the full blessing of the Centre (the Blunder does NOT count… I’m talking Mark Golovkov or Varsonufy Sudakov or both). Goofy things are happening in Kiev… it’s time to be careful and keep one’s wits about oneself… after all, Mollard is bovine, Jillions is an incompetent pawn, and Lyonyo is evil. Great scenario, eh… just wait, I fear that it’s going to get “better”.
