Patriarch Kirill on Betrayal

******

______________________________________

Betrayal is a terrible sin, as traitors abuse natural feelings and relationships. Betrayal facilitates the victory of evil, hypocrisy triumphs, arrogance prevails, and slyness wins. The actions of a traitor intensify all of these terrible vices. A traitor is always a negative person, not only in the eyes of honest people but also in the eyes of other betrayers. Traitors never get respect; often, no one deems them worthy witnesses. This is why the suicide of Judas seemed a lucky stroke… as if there was no betrayal if there wasn’t any Judas. He left life, solving a knotty problem for the priests and scribes. They could boldly accuse the Saviour… no one would know that his closest disciple betrayed an innocent man.

Patriarch of Moscow and all the Russias

Editor:

The ROCOR has to disassociate itself from those who honour the Vlasovtsy and Krasnov’s traitors. “A traitor is always a negative person, not only in the eyes of honest people but also in the eyes of other betrayers”. Note well how so many of them ended as CIA hacks and rightwing fringe nutters… one treason wasn’t enough, I guess. It’s ironic… the greatest examples of Sergianism and “Chekists in riassas” are found here, in the USA, not in the Rodina. They sold out the homeland in the Cold War and they continue to do so. “A traitor is always a negative person, not only in the eyes of honest people but also in the eyes of other betrayers”. What an epitaph for them…

24 October 2011. “Monk James” Pops Up Again… Defends the Indefensible… First, Madison; Then, Bobby; Now, Bobby’s Kid… It’s a Pattern, Ain’t It?

The Desecration of the Church at Easter

Here’s a proper image of what Silver and those like him are doing to the Church. If you believe them, you spit on the Lord Christ and His Truth. Bobby’s wrongdoings are not conjecture. Read about them here. Madison, Bobby, and Bobby Jr… Silver seems to like the company of no-good-niks. What does that tell us about him? “Believers” like Silver, Bobby, Love BT, Lyonyo, Stokoe, and Jillions are one of the major causes of atheism and Sectarianism… ponder THAT.

Look at the latest howler from James Silver:

******

Just to take one example (Exodus 34.6-7), there are others), when the Lord condescended to give Moses the Law a second time, He proclaimed:

And the LORD passed by before him, and proclaimed, The LORD, The LORD God, merciful and gracious, long-suffering, and abundant in goodness and truth, keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children’s children, unto the third and to the fourth generation.

Here, the only problem is that Fr Robert Kondratick wasn’t/isn’t guilty of the allegations falsely brought against him by his own fellow Christians, laity and clergy, Judases all. May the Lord forgive them. So, if Fr RK is innocent, then maybe his son is innocent as well. Maybe Bobby was caught up in a web spun by others and couldn’t escape before the law came down on them all. I don’t know. This will all come out in the legal wash eventually, so let’s reserve judgement until the court can make its rulings.

******

This is blasphemy of the most noxious and irreverent sort. Comparing Bobby and Bobby Jr to Christ Himself! No doubt, Mr Silver feels the same way towards his mentor Hilary Madison. The SIC DID find evidence of crime on the part of the Kondratick family. No prosecution ensued because the Holy Synod punked out and didn’t press charges, as they ought to have done. Silver, Rock, and Bobby all laughed at the OCA faithful… and still do. Note well that the so-called Metropolitan Council did little better… it hides behind secrecy and it defended every payout and legal settlement “for the good of the Church”. That’s why I have scant (if any) respect for such as Faith Skordinski and Gregory Nescott. They said nothing when Bobby extorted 250 Gs from the OCA. They (and the rest of the MC) were Pilates who washed their hands and let the evil simmer away.

Yet… Silver compares the Kondratick family to Our Lord Christ… that’s breathtaking in its vacuity and fatuousness, let alone its formal blasphemy, sacrilege, and impiety. That’s like saying that Don Vito Corleone was an undiscovered Thirteenth Apostle. None of the crimes uncovered by the SIC were airy accusations… they were corroborated by solid evidence. Remember… Bobby K’s free today because of the gutless and pusillanimous cravenness of the Holy Synod and the MC in refusing to press charges. There was enough evidence to send him “upstate”… maybe not to the Supermax, but certainly to the Fed slam in Canaan PA (where Bobby would have access to spiritual care from St Tikhon’s… it’s just down the road a piece). Let’s see… each air-conditioned cell accommodates two prisoners each… Bobby and Bobby Jr could share a “house”… the family that steals together stays together. In Silver’s eyes, all the OCA members who asked questions about the missing money are like unto Judas Iscariot and, by implication, Bobby’s an innocent victim like unto Christ! Hmm… what’s next? Is Silver going to liken Bette, the “long-suffering wife and mother” of the two “falsely accused”, to the Mother of God at the foot of the Cross on Golgotha?

I’m not averse to a dust-up. Sometimes, a real cosh-wielding and baton-swinging Donnybrook’s what’s necessary to clear the air. Hell, the old Metropolia was like that… they’d fight like hell, then, after they’d hammered out a decision (literally), they’d pull out the jug, and they’d all get sloshed together. This isn’t THAT. This smarmy hypocrite compares his pal Bobby to Our Lord Christ… and that’s NOT Kosher… no way, no how. I’m no Judas, Silver… give solid proof that what the SIC uncovered was false, and bring it to a court of law… but you won’t, you snaky SOB. SHUT UP. Bobby’s in Florida because of its lax extradition laws (the same reason that Brum’s in Arizona). This is too much of a muchness. If this isn’t proof that the OCA’s a sick dog in painful death throes in need of the humane killer, nothing is.

You can have James Silver or you can have Truth… it’s up to you… as always.
