Things seem to have quieted down on the Bishop Mark Maymon front. The overwhelming number of respondents believe that his name should be removed from consideration for Bishop of the South by a margin of two-to-one. Nothing more needs to be said on this so we at Monomakhos are going to retire that poll.
Instead, we are starting a new one. The issue du jour seems to be the Sex Czar and whether this position will be a boon for the OCA or an albatross around its neck. My personal belief is that should this position be ratified, then demoralization will set in among the priests. This would lead to a decrease in vocations and a spike in early retirements.
I could be wrong. That’s why I’m starting this survey. Please take the time to answer a few basic questions:
If the OCA appoints a Sex Czar, would you want to become a priest? Would you want your son or a relative to be a priest? And would you recommend the priesthood to someone else? The only answers allowed are “Yes,” “No,” or “Not Sure.”
