Raising questions about the fitness of Met. Nikita to investigate homosexual allegations is not allowed it appears. I posted my misgivings on Angela Damianakis’ Facebook page, and then I was blocked from further comment.
(What follows is the comment that I was prevented from giving):
Elias, just so you know, in my first blog posting, I invited all comers to offer their opinions. (I even welcomed ad hominem attacks against me.) Therefore, you are wrong right off the bat.
Leaving that aside, what “untruthful ‘facts’” have I published here or anywhere? All of my essays on the AOI have been edited and reviewed prior to publication. As for our egos being “delicate,” I can assure you that in my case, nothing could be further from the truth. I have been held up twice (so far) at gunpoint and once had a policemen point a rifle at me (he thought I was a burglar). Even worse than that, I was president of my church’s parish council for three years, and twice a delegate to the Clergy-Laity Congress. So, no, I’m no shrinking violet.
Let us lay our cards on the table: this travesty at St Irene Chryosovolantou has been ongoing for several years. It was not unkown within the corridors of 79th St. It’s simply impossible for a criminal ring to operate in complete secrecy. Any cop will tell you that.
Regardless, I pray for a quick and just resolution to this atrocity, not a whitewash. If not, I would issue a brotherly warning to the Archons of the Ecumenical Throne: gentlemen, get out your checkbooks.
p.s. I like the “Jorge” bit. People have been calling me that for decades now. How ever did you know?
