A Cabineteer sent me the following:
I find the way that the OCA handled this is reprehensible and beneath the salt. Dickie deserved to get such news at a formal hearing… he deserved to have this posted on the official website so that the world would know what the SOBs (again… whether it’s “Synod of Bishops” or “Sons of Bitches” is up to you, dear reader) did. This is what decent and normal people do. Lyonyo and Jillions (this smells of them, no doubt about it) went too far this time. You see, other priests are going to ask, “Who’s next?” Jillions was none-too-bright to begin with, and Lyonyo has forgotten that there’s a whole world outside Syosset and its ingrown clique. No matter that Dickie Wood was arrogant and a self-promoter… there are procedures and due process, not only in the secular legal sense, but in Church law, too (as a real expert like Alexander Lebedeff would tell you).
Them whom the gods would destroy, first, they make them mad… if there was ever an apt occasion for that, it’s now. This is too much of a muchness. The people who did this are worthy of no respect whatsoever. Our Church institution has fallen and REFUSES to get up… isn’t that a sign that we have to do something about it? Just sayin’…
