1 October 2017. These are the People that the ROCOR Labelled “Murderers”… I Find that Offensive and Mendacious

******

________________________

Recently, the ROCOR issued an official statement (posted on their official website, with the signature of Metropolitan Ilarion Kapral) calling communists “murderers”. This caused much uproar in Russia amongst believers, as well as it should. In the Donbass, in the Peoples Republics today, one sees a vibrant and inspiring coming-together of socialism and Orthodoxy. The Orthodox patriots embrace socialism and find it GOOD. Note well that the ROCOR statement would label these people “murderers”, for they honour the Soviet legacy. People such as Victor Potapov were paid employees of the CIA; they worked to enable its hateful agenda against the Rodina. The ROCOR hasn’t lived down its filthy collaboration with the CIA (they’ve never asked forgiveness for having aided the godless American postwar global project)… they received its blood-money… Fr Alexander Lebedeff admitted that in public. Yes… the ROCOR had more than one “Chekist in a riassa” (clergy who worked for the Western special services) and more than one Sergianist (clergy who sold out Christ’s Church to pander to one political faction or another). It has no warrant whatsoever to label communists (and by implication all leftists) as “murderers”. It helped the CIA (as did elements of the OCA, too… A D Schmemann worked for Langley, too)… which has a long history of murder, mayhem, and viciousness. If the communists are “murderers”, so is the ROCOR… for it took the money of killers and helped to enable the killers’ agenda. The blood of innocents is on their hands, too…

Have a care… we live in perilous times. Some want to ally the Church with godless American neo-imperialism. Shall they succeed? God willing, no…

3 January 2016. Cabinet Vox Pop on “Brother Nathanael”

00 Glittersnipe.com. Get Your Shit Together. 2013

______________________________

I got this from a well-regarded senior lay source:

Regarding your post on “Brother Nathanael”, I’m astounded to read that he has any connection with any canonical Orthodox diocese. By accident, I came across several of his YouTube rants and always assumed that he was a total impostor pretending to be an Orthodox monk, and could just as easily have claimed to be the Pope of Rome. He comes across as having an obsession with the Jews, and various Middle Eastern sources, possibly even Islamic, quoted him favourably as sharing their disdain for Jewish people. This is bad for the Orthodox Church if a bishop officially recognises him as authentically Orthodox. Not to my knowledge has he mentioned what monastery he actually abides in, and how is he not under ecclesiastical supervision regarding self-glorification by promoting himself in mass media?

I need add nothing. Vladyki Hilarion brought disgrace upon the Church by his (albeit vague and tepid) approval of this jabronie. I’ll speak the truth to power, if necessary… Vladyki Hilarion, be clearer… CONDEMN Nathanael’s rants or people will think that you approve of them…

2 January 2016. Why is Metropolitan Hilarion Kapral Coddling Nathanael Kapner?

00 Brother Nathanael 01. 09.06.14

THIS is the sort of person that Metropolitan Hilarion is defending? WHY? The guy’s an obvious nutter and inhabitant of the loony fringe…

______________________________

Look at this.

Why is Metropolitan Hilarion Kapral doing this? Sorry to say, but the enemies of the Church are using this to imply that the ROCOR agrees with Kapner’s often-bizarre internet postings. This missive implies that Kapner’s ludicrous postings are in sync with the Church. WHY? I do know that Kapner and Paffhausen are close… I saw them in animated conversation at J’ville at Pentecost a couple of years back (when Paffso was still in limbo). This makes no sense and links the Church with outré elements. Why, Vladyki Hilarion, why?

We’ll pay dearly if we continue to coddle such oddbod konvertsy elements. That’s a prophecy…

3 March 2015. Pray for Metropolitan Hilarion Kapral!

00 Metropolitan Hilarion Kapral. Pray for Peace. 08.02

______________________________

Recently, Vladyki Hilarion was in hospital in Sydney for atrial fibrillation and has now had a cardioversion. He’s now resting at his residence under the care of his doctors. Every single person who has met Metropolitan Hilarion knows how truly saintly this man is. He’s beloved by so many faithful. Please, pray for his quick recovery, as he leads the ROCOR through these turbulent and difficult times. There is no one finer than this man to lead this Church at this moment in history!
