  1. Ronda Wintheiser says

    What is he afraid of?

  2. Can you share his “complaints ?” Is he making a retraction or a “restatement?”

  3. Bostonsurvivor says

    Not very manly is it. He was proud enough of his words when they were on the oca site, but not now? This is an old issue with Fr. Robert, he crushes dissent, and demands cult worship of his personage. Evil evil evil, and the oca loves him.

  4. Heracleides says

    In all this one must still pity the rodent that gave its life to become Arida’s rat-hat. Memory Eternal!

  5. Bishop Tikhon (Fitzgerald says

    Heracleides Pompikos! Surely that’s a wig, rather than a hat?

  6. Incredible points. Solid arguments. Keep up the good effort.
