1 November 2013. Testimony for Defence in Storheim Case Follows Tattered Papist Playbook



Click here and here for stories on the Storheim defence. This is an old, old story… we heard the same things in all the Catholic sex abuse trials… the clergyman is innocent, the accusers are crazy, and no one believes them. Storheim’s lawyer is a putz if he thinks that he can make this tired old mantra fly. It didn’t work for the RCs and it won’t work for Storheim. Look, the Crown offered a plea… that means that they have damning evidence. Remember, two OCA priests broke the “black wall of silence” and testified against Storheim. This sorry-ass Mexican soap opera is gasping to a spavined conclusion. Yet, I don’t think that we’re going to see “scandal” from the outcome. It’s just one more outré OCA peccadillo… everyone’s just hoping for someone, somewhere, to bring out the humane killer to put this sick beast down.

Everyone’s TIRED of the whole sorry mess and wants it OVER. I don’t mean just the Storheim case… I mean the OCA experiment… it’s a failed prototype. We have a FAILED dysfuctional Church in the diaspora… both the OCA and the ROCOR (Jerome Shaw didn’t resign for nought). It’s time to admit our failure and go home. Our place at table IS waiting…

Former Mansfield Priest Patrick Nicholas Hughes Arrested In Sex Sting


The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office arrested an Orthodox priest on sex charges who served in Mansfield OH as late as 2009. Cops arrested Patrick Hughes, also known as the Rev Nicholas Hughes, on Wednesday night. Police said that the Franklin County Internet Crimes Against Children task force arrested him on suspicion of attempted rape and attempted unlawful sexual conduct with a minor. Hughes, a native of Alabama, served at Ss Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox Church in Mansfield for about 18 years. He lived at St Theodore House, a small monastery on Portland Way South in Galion OH. He left there in 2009. Most recently, he’s served a Greek Orthodox parish in Columbus OH.

Sheriff Zach Scott said that the investigation began earlier Wednesday, when Hughes allegedly posted an ad on an adult social networking site. The nature of the ad indicated that someone was looking for sexual relations with children. A detective responded to the ad and began communicating with Hughes. During the conversation, authorities allege, Hughes believed he was setting up a meeting with two boys, ages 9 and 14, for sexual activity. The cops arrested Hughes when he travelled to a location in Franklin County under the pretence of meeting the boys. Later that night, investigators searched Hughes’ north Columbus hotel room, where they recovered a laptop computer. They will examine the computer. Galion Police Detective Eric Bohach said that there are no other local priests involved in this incident, saying, “We’ve talked to people here, and there’s no indication that anybody else is involved”.

Hughes, 56, is acting dean at Annunciation Greek Orthodox Cathedral. He was a one-year interim priest at the church. The 2011 Richland-Ashland Regional CenturyLink telephone book lists Hughes’ address as Portland Way South. He’s in jail on felony charges of attempted rape and attempted unlawful sexual conduct with a minor. His bond was set at 100,000 USD (3.1 million Roubles. 77,000 Euros. 62,000 UK Pounds) during a Thursday court appearance. The news release from the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office gave Hughes’ address as 6191 Zumstein Drive on the North Side, which is a Hawthorn Suites hotel. Anyone with information on Hughes should call the Galion Police Department at (419) 468-5255 or the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office at (614) 525-3448.

Editor’s Note:

Note well that Hughes still sits in the slam, and neither the bishop or the parish is doing anything to spring him. That says a lot. One of the Cabinet said, “He’s just another homosexual convert priest”… yes, and the konvertsy continually caterwaul about sexual purity and poofs… when there’s a greater amount of it (proportionately) amongst them than found in real Orthodox circles. Fancy that. What was that about the long-time association of Fathausen, Gerasim Eliel, Damascene Christiansen, Freddie M-G, and Dreher with Gleb Podmoshensky (even after the ROCOR Holy Synod gave GP le sabot)? Hmm… proves my point, doesn’t it? If they’re not closeted poofs, they’re enablers of same… all whilst ranting about “homosexuals in the Church”… it’s a wonderful day in the neighbourhood, kids…

By the way, probably, Hughes is in “Punk City” (Protective Custody)… that’s slang for Solitary Confinement outside of General Population. That’s so the decent cons don’t murder him (literally). If there’s anyone hated in the slam, it’s a child molester. The half-life of such sorts is reckoned in seconds…

21 September 2012. Official Statement on Hughes’ Suspension

Metropolitan Maximos Aghiorgoussis (1935- ) of Pittsburgh giving Hughes the Great Schema


I was sent this:

It is with heaviness of heart that I write to inform you that the V Rev NICHOLAS HUGHES is hereby suspended from all priestly activity effective immediately and until further notice pending the outcome of an investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct.

Metropolitan Savas Zembillas

That’s all… but that’s all that’s necessary. Besides which, it was timely and released immediately. That’s good on the Greeks…

Hughes with Metropolitan Savas Zembillas (1957- ) of Pittsburgh


Hey, all you perspirin’ minds out there… click here… it’ll take you to Mugshots.com. That means that Hughes’ arrest is kosher and on the level. I wonder if he’s still in the slam or did the Greeks bail him out?

This is why I don’t chide the RCs for nasty clergy the way that Rod Dreher did (and his being a former papist made his snide attack twice as nasty and un-Christian)… hey, we’re no slouches in the Sinful-Ginful Department ourselves! If you needed proof of Satan and his works… look no further. After all, this jabronie was caught in a sting… you can bet that the coppers took and sealed his computer. That’s why you should NEVER EVER log onto hoochy-kootchy sites. If you do, the “cookies” have a half-life longer than that of U-238, and they could SINK you. That’s a word to the wise. Not only is kiddie porno immoral… it’s just plain dangerous (unless you WANT to find out if the local hoosegow has rats, first-hand, that is).
