Psst…. the following is rumored to have been “overheard…” at the close of the AAC in Seattle. Ogle it here:

Carl, what with you being an acolyte of Mrs. Stokoe-Brown, I am quite certain you’re well acquainted with participation in circle-jerks.
Yes, it’s a vulgar observation, but it mirrors your own.

That being the case then Chris, your malice says exactly what about your father?

Coven: 1. A collection of individuals with similar interests or activities (example: a coven of intellectuals). 2. An assembly or band of usually 13 witches.
+Benjamin, +Melchisedek, Mrs. Stokoe-Brown, Ms. Leonova, etc. along with their MC & Syosset flunkies and assorted hangers-on & apologists (include yourself where appropriate Carl) certainly qualify for definition #1 above. Deal with it.

Who is making fun? I’m simply stating the FACTS (you know, something you shysters love to carp about only when it suits you).
The point, Carl, is that +Benjamin fails one of the cardinal qualifications for actually being a bishop. Given his history of alcohol abuse going back to seminary days, he should never have been ordained a deacon or priest much less bishop. +Benjamin should be sent packing, but we all know that is not going to happen; not with this Unholy Synod.
P.S. Wait until you see the +Benjamin ‘monkey-butt’ image I am working on Carl – then you might have some grounds for complaint.

You most certainly may. In case you missed it the first time around, here is the information once more:
My apologies George for posting this message twice (both here and in another thread), but with the AAC fast approaching I wanted to have it in a recent thread with fewer posts so it wouldn’t be buried under 200+ messages!
I had hoped to attend the AAC in person, but due to an illness in the family will not be able to do so. I have therefore decided to upload a project in support of Met. Jonah that I’ve been working on for some time. The project consists of two “campaign button” style images featuring our Metropolitan and are intended to be worn while at the AAC in a show of support. Rather than going for something satirical, I decided this morning in favor of understatement and to simply let the images speak for themselves.
There are two different button images to select from, and the images can be downloaded from here: http://s1235.photobucket.com/albums/ff436/Heracleides/AAC%20Buttons/ Click on the images without the lines and save them by right-clicking and selecting “save as” from the options listed. Once you’ve saved the images to a directory (be sure to remember where you’ve put them) you can then go to Zazzle and have buttons made up for your use quite inexpensively using the following url: http://www.zazzle.com/make_a_button-145067964138452953
Once at the url above, simply select a button size and them hit the orange “Customize It” button and follow the instructions. (The sample buttons on my Photobucket Album from where you downloaded the images depict the 3 inch buttons, but the images themselves are suitable for all sizes available. In the samples, the area inside the red lines is what will be visible, that outside the lines will of course curl underneath the button.)
I hope folks attending the AAC will find the buttons useful and go to the effort of making a few for yourself and friends too wear with pride while at the council. Better yet, make a few extra buttons and hand them out to others at the AAC – the more open support our Metropolitan receives in Seattle – the better.
P.S. The ‘illness’ in the family (a very difficult pregnancy for one of my sisters) resolved itself quite happily yesterday afternoon – I am once again the proud uncle of another niece!

+Benjamin was on the lam from the alcohol rehab center where he was ostensibly undergoing treatment when he had his 2004 DUI accident and subsequent drunk & disorderly arrest. (He also puked in the squad car to such a degree that it had to be taken out of service and professionally cleansed.)

Yep. Matovic not only participates frequently, but is also sympathetic ‘to the cause’ judging by the tenor of her posts on Leonova’s site.
» Posted By Heracleides On November 1, 2011 @ 5:38 pm
Helga, did you see Matovic’s closing observations on other remarks by +Benjamin at the opening session (again, emphasis mine)?
Then questions — a couple of nonsensical grandstanding ones (which people were confronted about), 2 people from St. Seraphim (along with Fr. Chad Hatfield) asked variations of “MJ has owned his part in this, what about the rest of you?” Came out that 2 other bishops will participate with MJ in whatever this evaluation is. Benjamin firm that the problem in the HS is of leadership (i.e., we’ll all work to fix this but MJ is owning the problem because he is the problem and don’t kid yourself into thinking otherwise).
Big headline — Jonah agrees to some kind of intervention, acknowledges he’s made a mess. Most telling comment: Bp. Benjamin in response to a question saying something to the effect of if this doesn’t work, the HS will take further action.
While it is prudent to read Matovic’s commentary with the knowledge that she is a Stokovite and one of Leonova’s coven, I did find her words credible. To be honest, this putsch isn’t over by a long shot and the next few month’s are going to be telling (and I fear saddening as well).
» Posted By Heracleides On November 1, 2011 @ 4:03 pm
HA! I had a good belly-laugh at Matovic’s comment below as she reported on +Benjamin’s opening address (emphasis mine):
Benjamin: A quite pointed address. It’s been challenging three years. We’re here to work together. Salvation/church = union, communion, conciliarity; devil is division. If you’re here with an agenda, go home; if you’re wearing a button, take it off. (Apparently there’s some group with buttons of some kind identifying them as part of a faction – I haven’t seen.) His sharp, clear direction was met with enthusiasm and sustained applause.
Dare I hope that some brave folks had the audacity to wear the buttons I designed, which simply depict +Jonah & his signature, and nothing more? My-oh-my… +Benjamin is certainly a touchy fellow when even an image of our Metropolitan offends his pompous ass. I’d advise him to chill out with a drink in the hotel lounge, but wouldn’t want the drunk (to be P.C. I suppose it would have been better to say ‘recovering-alcoholic’) to fall off the wagon. It is nice, however, to see that +Benjamin has requested all those present “with an agenda” go home; doubtless he and a good portion of the HS & MC will be leaving on the next few flights out of SeaTac.

Has anyone else read Solodow’s indictment of +Jonah in the DOW Delegate Handbook on pages 3-4? Stokoe’s MC dance-partner(s) prove to be up-to-form as usual. The Metropolitan is in my prayers as he walks amidst serpents this week. May angels guide & guard his steps.

And the rot continues… yet another ‘Orthodox’ website dedicated to advancing the homosexual agenda within the church. It is run by, of all people, a supposedly ‘Orthodox’ priest. It’s name is “Orthodox and Gay” and as the site clearly states:
There are two main guiding principles of this website:
One: The Orthodox Church is the Bride of Christ.
Two: Being gay is a gift of God, the Creator. Therefore expressing that gift in a healthy and mature relationship is also blessed by God.

Very well done Father and well worth the read.

Seeing as how Leonova’s crew have decided to crash the party, I thought I’d help them out the door with a gift in keeping with the season. The image is a new banner for Leonova’s facebook page and is titled “Inga’s Cackle” – it may be viewed here: http://s1235.photobucket.com/albums/ff436/Heracleides/

It is pretty obvious to me that “Mike Myers” (tip-of-the-hat to the comedian Mike Myers no doubt) is also the former “Ted Logan” (tip-of-the-hat to Theodore ‘Ted’ Logan of “Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure” fame – and a former poster on GayPatriot.com) is the original nutter who went by the moniker “Anonymous Because It’s All The Rage.” Having been shown the door twice already, perhaps the third time will be the charm for this troll.

“Abominable things” of course meaning anything BUT sodomy occurring in Sodom, right Mike? Give us all a break. You homophiles are nothing but Stokovites… er, contortionists in your attempts to subvert the faith, and rather absurd ones at that.

Shhh…. you weren’t supposed to notice that portion of the verse Fr. Dn. Move on, nothing to see here…

Lol…well, it was about time for me to buy another keyboard. Waste of a perfectly good glass of ice-tea though.

Matt is another member of Leonova’s coven. Thing’s must have gotten dull on her site (understandable since only one point-of-view is allowed) to occasion their arrival en mass.

Look, I have no interest in “forcing the Church to change its tradition”…
Really Joseph? Then what exactly was the manifesto you authored, signed, and circulated for other members of Leonova’s coven to sign before forwarding it to the bishops of the OCA? Your attempt at being disingenuous on this matter borders on being an outright lie. Stop dissembling and simply say what you mean & mean what you say.

While working on another project, I was reminded that in just a few weeks we will mark the seventh anniversary of the Lush of the West’s DUI accident / Drunk & Disorderly incident in Nevada. To highlight this ever-memorial event in the OCA’s history since autocephaly, I composed the following image, which is titled “Benny on Board” and may be viewed here: http://s1235.photobucket.com/albums/ff436/Heracleides/

Spoken like one of Leonova’s tried & true minions…. hold please, I sense a touchy-feelie moment coming on.

How truly bizarre Helga… (I guess great minds think alike ) I say this because I was also thinking about the Metropolitan Council At-Large positions today and had whipped up the following image, which is titled “Yes He Can!” and may be viewed at: http://s1235.photobucket.com/albums/ff436/Heracleides/
Wouldn’t that outcome place the “Holy” Synod on the horns of a dilema.

Looks like Fr. Patrick missed a significant propaganda photo-op last month with his Muslim pal, Syria’s Grand Mufti Ahmad Badreddin Hassoun. No doubt the Despots’ were not pleased with the snafu. Seriously though, the photograph inside an Antiochian Patriarchate church says it all: http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-503543_162-57372175-503543/syrias-christians-stand-by-assad/

Isa: “I am a little confused: if you wife was a native Syrian Muslim, how were you able to live with her as her husband in Syria?”
Denny: “About three months prior to the protests breaking out, my then fiance, now wife, informed me…”
That would have been about a year ago, and Denny states elsewhere they left Syria in mid-April. Small window of time (what, 14 or so weeks at the utmost) so it would appear they either married very shortly before departing or sometime thereafter.

George, it is interesting to note that in his televised rant, the Grand Mufti makes a point of stating that the Muslim suicide bombers he threatens to unleash will be native American & European converts to Islam. Myself, I would not be at all surprised if his bluster holds more than a grain of truth.
When completing my graduate studies at one of the largest state universities in the nation shortly after 911, I had the misfortune to run afoul of an American convert to Islam who was by far and away the more fanatical Muslim than any of the “cradle” Islamists who frequented the Muslim Center on campus. While I hate to admit it, I can quite easily see that white, middle-class undergrad nutcase elbowing his “cradle” pals out of the way to be at the front of the line to strap on a suicide vest.
Only thing worse than a “naturalized” foreign born fifth column is a native Quisling class in our midst.

Most enlightening. Perhaps for your next propaganda photo-op your master will send you to dine with Hasan Nasrallah of Hezbollah. You can then share your deep insights as to your utter shock, sorrow and amazement when he shows his true colors just a few days after your visit. Thankfully, he will have kept his true nature cloaked prior too and during your pow-wow so as not to spoil your extended gastronomic extravaganza.
» Posted By Heracleides On October 11, 2011 @ 11:02 am
Since they are acquainted and, if photographs are any indication, get along splendidly, perhaps Fr. Reardon can have a word with the Grand Mufti and ask that he show continued restraint and only condone the bombing of non-Christians in Syria… er, Europe and the US.

How does my commenting on Bp. Philip’s preference in titles somehow equate to expert knowledge of life in Syria for Christians under the Dictator Assad? Please enlighten me Tamara as to your muddled thinking in this regard and perhaps we can go from there.
