Something which could arguably be viewed as a positive.

Well said Um.

“Unless you have attained theosis, I am comfortable in saying you really don’t know the mind of God when He made Ms Drezhlo.”
How careless of God – “Male and Female He Created Them” – except of course when He routinely screws up and traps a female inside a male body and vice versa. Please, Guy, query God with your concerns about the apparently botched creation of Mr. Drezhlo (not your idiotic “Ms.”) and get back too us once you’ve finished picking His mind.
P.S. I’d love to know the name of the purported priest you claim to consult on this issue.

Her? You appear confused. Stan Drezhlo is a man. He always has been a man, he always will be a man. That’s the way God made him, so he (and apparently you) need to deal with that bit of reality.

So you say Mr. Stankovich – I don’t believe a word of it. I say this based on your past response (or lack thereof) relating to questions regarding your supposed education: http://www.monomakhos.com/hype-and-hysteria-sexual-misconduct-in-the-catholic-church/ Until you supply concrete evidence of your supposed doctoral degree, I will remain convinced that your are nothing more than a rather pompous MSW who is not above lying about his supposed qualifications to pontificate from a rather minuscule soapbox.

Wrong – it is NOT “Dr. Stankovich.” As has been discussed on both AOI and this blog in times past – your online resume “did not list any doctoral degrees. It did show extensive experience in social work, some of which related to chemical dependency.” You have never provided evidence of having completed the requirements necessary for receiving whatever doctoral degree it is that you think you are now owed respect; in fact, you have previously stated that you were unable to complete said requirements due to injury & illness. Traumatic brain injury or not – do try and remain grounded in reality Mr. Stankovich.

Sorry Carl – but you left yourself wide open for this one, you “little imp” you.

Yes, amazing how he totally overlooked that infamous chapter of his life.

“I’m sure that the files of the Holy Synod and of the Primate from those days [Basil's episcopate] must be available from the Archives of the OCA.”
Still upset that Basil’s ‘case file’ has not made the rounds while your file has?
“…his [Basil's] disastrous incumbency out here.”
Pot, meet kettle; kettle, pot.
” I had no direct experience of his [Basil's] gadabout and media-wooing days…”
As opposed to what – your gadabout and internet-trolling days?

Hmmm… would Transvestite be one of the items to check off on the episcopal Report Card you suggest be created?

Ah, that explains it… for a moment I thought Ladder was channeling Ashley Nevins.

“Your Grace, if nothing happened to the children as you say, why are you blaming the parents for being responsible for their abuse?”
When Bp. Tikhon saw that he was getting nowhere, but that instead an uproar was starting, he took diaper-wipes and washed his… ‘hands’ in front of the blogosphere. “I am innocent of these children’s lost, ah, innocence,” he said. “It is the parents responsibility!!!” (Paraphrase of Luke 27:24 NIV)

Never thought I’d live to see the day, but I have to agree with Mr. Stankovich on this one. As a fellow clinical social worker who worked for years as a probation officer in a juvenile sex offenders unit, everything Stankovich has written in his post above is spot on. No doubt about it, hell has officially frozen over.

My take on recent events emanating from the Syosset Cesspool is titled “Muppetry” and may be viewed with my other images here. (The usual stooges should refrain from viewing lest they irreparably damage their sense of humor.)

Ladder of Divine Ascent! You dare mention Schmemann without performing a triple prostration??? No doubt Meyendorff is spinning in his grave and Hopko is thrashing in his straitjacket! Please – for the sake of Carl and other SVS groupies – in the future show the utmost adulation for the Holy Troika of the perpetually-renovated Orthodox Church in America by properly kowtowing to its iconic protopresbyters. In the meantime, fifty lashes with Benjamin’s S&M whip followed by a much-deserved beatdown from Nikolai for you.

Yes, but how well does he stuff it???

Nope – that was Photius. Your eyesight going? I hear that’s what happens when you, ah, ‘dine’ to frequently with Mr. & Mr. Stokoe-Brown. Shame on you (and the Bozodeacon).

“Whether St Tarcisius was a mere acolyte is another matter”
A mere quibbe Fr. James:
Christians were still persecuted in the 3rd century and what follows most likely happened during the persecution of Emperor Valerian. The Christians in order to escape notice used to worship in the catacombs which were and are underground cemeteries outside the walls of Rome. One day Tarcisius, a twelve year old acolyte, was present and since there was no deacon to bring communion to Christians in prison, he agreed to go.
On the way he met a group of pagan boys who invited him to play with them. He refused. Somehow he was identified as a Christian and when the boys saw he was carrying something “Holy mysteries” they demanded to see them. When he refused, they became a mob who turned upon him with fury. It is believed that a fellow Christian drove away the mob and brought Tarcisius to the Catacombs where he died. He was buried in the cemetery of St. Callistus and his relics are now in the Roman Church of San Silvestro in Capite. Pope St. Damasus l in the 4th century wrote a poem commemorating Tarcisius martyrdom as follows:
“When a wicked group of fanatics flung themselves
on Tarcisius who was carrying the Eucharist,
wanting to profane the Sacrament, the boy preferred
to give up his life rather than yield up
the Body of Christ to those rabid dogs”.
As for Body vs. Blood vs. both, in this instance tradition holds that Tarcisius carried the Body, wrapped in cloth, and died with it clutched to his chest.

“ONLY the Blood of Christ was imparted (sometimes by Deacons) from the Chalice.”
The bishop might want to inform St. Tarcisius (a third century acolyte) that it was NOT the Body of Christ he died defending from pagans whilst on his way to a Roman prison where he was to distribute it to Chirstian captives.

Bishop, I’ve long pondered (not) your apparent fixation with Stan Drezhlo… and now I think I’ve hit on it, and it’s just plain Daffy! (Or envy as the case may be…)
» Posted By Heracleides On February 7, 2013 @ 7:03 pm
Oh blah, blah, blah Carl. I ceased to take anything you have to say seriously a long time ago – especially once I learned that you are a poor excuse for a priests brat. Get over yourself.

Perhaps daft bishops – when spouting salacious innuendo and similar such drivel – should be held to the same idiotic standards they demand of others? Sauce, goose, gander…

You really do have a rather pointless existence in your twilight years, don’t you? I can think of a hell of a lot better things to do than worry about my photobucket account… or play word games as to whether you are really departing this blog or not. But, hey – it’s your life swiftly spinning towards the bottom of the bowl – so knock yourself out.

Memory going? At this rate you’ll never finish that sordid little memoir you claim to be writing. To reacquaint you with your previous prattle:
“I feel I must regretfully take a truly FINAL departure from this forum…”
So much for a truthful statement from you… but then as I’ve stated previously, you are an OCA bishop – nuff said.

What happened to your declaration of departing and never returning? Word of an OCA ‘bishop’ worthless?
» Posted By Heracleides On January 23, 2013 @ 7:49 am
You plan on sharing your bedroom? How generous of you Mr. Stankovich.
P.S. How’s treatment of your “traumatic brain injury” progressing?
» Posted By Heracleides On January 20, 2013 @ 8:57 pm
Indeed. I imagine that if Bp. Tikhon/Artakhshassa the Great had the funds he receives in retirement from the OCA terminated he might sing a far different tune.

Speaking only for myself, I count the days until the start of Great Lent and your customary self-imposed gagging for the duration.
