UPDATE (SEP 11, 2022, 12 pm): WE HAVE A NEW DATE – NOVEMBER 1st!!  Michael Psaros appeared on Fox news this morning and spoke for about 45 seconds.  In these few seconds, he announced that Saint Nicholas will open on November 1st!!  And he emphasized in these 45 seconds that Saint Nicholas includes an “Interfaith Bereavement Center”… This must be the 10th time in the last five years that GOARCH has given a date: Do they think that anyone pays attention to their dates anymore? The only date that should matter is the date in late October when the Jerry Dimitriou trial will begin – then, hopefully, the truth will come out, and Karloutsos and the rest will find punishment!!


A new devastating piece by NY Post about the “perpetually delayed” opening!  Unbelievable excuses by Karloutsos, who has lost the trust of donors!! More Archons withdraw their support from Elpidoktonos! Pat. Bartholomew demanded a letter of response by the Archbishop to the Church of Greece! The 183rd edition of the newspaper “Omogenia” by old-timer journalist Nikos Notaridis, not known for his “extremism,” demands in a front-page editorial: “He (Elpidophoros) has to go!!”   

By Nick Stamatakis

A new series of cataclysmic events is shaking GOARCH, showing that the many abhorrent deviations of AB Elpidoktonos from our faith and our Hellenic heritage and ethnicity have turned from a simmering discontent to a raging river that threatens to take down everything on its path, including the faithless Constantinople Patriarchate!! A few hours ago, Melissa Klein of the NY Post published an update on Saint Nicholas stating that there will be no service tomorrow because the “perpetually delayed” Church is not ready for the 21st anniversary of the September 11 attacks… (you can read it below). 
Katloutsos and Psarros offered the usual “excuses” about marbles that “could not arrive on time,” and “money that will be offered after the Church is finished”!! The curse of Saint Nicholas in its powerful manifestation!! But the biggest curse of Saint Nicholas will come when the Chuch finally opens in a New York City DEVASTATED by the same policies supported by Elpidoktonos – the woke “BLM” and crime-friendly policies: There will be no millions of visitors as the greedy Phanariots expected!! There will be no thousands of them either!! Even the Greek Orthodox faithful will not visit – until the Phanariots repent and disappear from the face of America!!
Karloutsos made an unbelievable statement to the NY Post (below): “Two donors had pledged to kick in a total of $5 million for an endowment fund once the certificate of occupancy was issued”!! This unheard-of statement has only one explanation: That at least two mega-donors want to make sure that their money will not be stolen by the gang of Karloutsos and Bartholomew (under whatever poor excuse) and that they want assurances.  Why doesn’t Karloutsos give the full explanation?
In the meantime, the cracks in the support for AB Elpidoktonos are becoming deeper and deeper. First, the faithful avoid him anywhere he goes!! He has to invite all the district priests with their families for the church he attends to be half-full!!  The faithful have gotten the message and avoid him everywhere!! Second, in addition to Archon Spiro Spyreas (Sigmapharm), who a few weeks ago openly attacked the Archbishop and accused him of all his known sins and mistakes, in essence asking for his replacement, many other Archons have openly expressed their disappointment and are looking for a change of leadership.
 Yesterday TNH reported that the Patriarch demanded that Elpidophoros offer an official letter of response to the Church of Greece regarding the infamous “gay baptism” in Glyfada.  Let me note here that Pat. Bartholomew met Archbishop of Greece Ieronymos a few days ago, and they are likely trying to facilitate a resolution to this issue (possibly with Elpidoktonos issuing a half-hearted apology and the Church of Greece accepting it).  It may also be a way to show Elpidoktonos the way out.  Only time will tell – but the first possibility is the most likely.
Finally, a small but old Greek-American monthly newspaper, “Omogenia,” published in Greek by Nikos Notaridis, came out with a front-page (in its 183rd edition) article titled: “He Has To Go!” referring to Elpidoktonos…Here is the front page – you can read it in Greek and English in the second part of this post, after the NY POST report:

Greek Orthodox shrine at Ground Zero won’t open for 9/11 anniversary

A perpetually delayed Greek Orthodox church near Ground Zero won’t be open in time for the 21st anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks, officials said.

The setback is the latest in a long list of obstacles to completing the $100 million St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church and National Shrine at the World Trade Center.

Work has plodded for eight years to replace the only house of worship destroyed in the attacks. The opening is now slated for mid October.

The project — which was designed by Spanish “starchitect” Santiago Calatrava — had been scheduled to open last spring.

The Greek Orthodox church held a consecration service, attended by some 1,000 people, at the marble-clad building in July even though the interior work was not finished.

Michael Psaros, chairman of the Friends of St. Nicholas, which is raising money for the project, said shipping delays were to blame.

“Remember, the marble starts in Greece, goes to Germany, goes to Austria, goes to Minnesota and then goes to Ground Zero,” Psaros said.

Church organizers claim they are waiting for marble from Greece to arrive.

He said the final pieces of the marble arrived in August and are being installed and that the iconography that will adorn the walls is also being completed.

The shrine replaces the modest St. Nicholas Church which stood on Cedar Street until it was crushed when the World Trade Center’s South Tower fell.

The project was delayed over negotiations with the Port Authority, which owns the Liberty Street site, and a funding crisis that stopped construction in December 2017 and led to authorities probing what happened to the money.

Psaros said the building, which will include a non-denominational bereavement center, was fully funded.

The Rev. Alex Karloutsos, an advisor to the Friends group, said two donors had pledged to kick in a total of $5 million for an endowment fund once the certificate of occupancy was issued.

And once the building is finally done, it will be lighted from the inside to give it the appearance that it glows.

“It will be lit every night after we open,” Psaros said. “That light will be really a symbol of resurrection over death, of light over darkness. Really the resurrection of New York.”


Του Νικου Νοταρίδη
Αὐτό πού ἔκανε εἶναι ἀσυγχώρητο!!
Ὁ νῦν Ἀρχιεπίσκοπος – κακῇ τῇ τύχη- τοῦ Ἑλληνισμοῦ τῆς Ἀμερικῆς, Ἐλπιδοφόρος (…ὑποτίθεται…), ὑπέπεσε στό βαρύτατο παράπτωμα νά βαπτίσει τά, ἐντελῶς ἀθῶα βέβαια, βρέφη πού εἶχαν ἀποκτήσει μέσῳ ἀμοιφθείσης γυναικός δύο πλούσιοι ὁμογενεῖς …”gay”. Καί, ναί μέν, ο Ἐλπιδοφόρος καί κατά τό πολύ μάλλον καί ὁ προϊστάμενός του στήν Κωνσταντινούπολη ἠμοίφθησαν, ὁπωσδήποτε πλουσιοπάροχα γιά τήν «ἐξυπηρέτηση» πρός τούς πλουσίους ὁμογενεῖς “gay”. Ἡ «ἐξυπηρέτηση» ὅμως, πού παρεῖχαν στήν Ἐκκλησία και στήν Κοινωνία μέ τήν πράξη αὐτήν, ἦταν…ΚΑΤΑΣΤΡΕΠΤΙΚΗ!!
«Ἀσκός τοῦ Αἰώλου», ἀνοίγεται ἀπό ἐδῶ καί μπρός. Οἱ ὁμογενεῖς νέοι, πού ἔχουν ἤδη
«κεντηθεῖ» καί δηλητηριαστεῖ μέ τό δηλητήριο τοῦ “pride” δέν εἶναι λίγοι!!, δυστυχῶς.
Καί ὅλο καί πολλαίνουν, ἀφοῦ…ἀκόμη καί στα σχολεῖα διδάσκεται αυτή ἡ ἐλευθεριότης, δηλαδή ἡ ἀφύσικη καί ἁμαρτωλός -καί σ’σιχαμένη – συνεύρεσις. Τί μένει, γιά νά ἀντισταθεῖ καί νά βἀλει φραγμό; Μόνο ἡ Ἐκκλησία. Καί, ναί μέν, ἐγνωρίζαμε ἕως τώρα ὅτι καί μέσα στήν Ἐκκλησία ὑπάρχει αὐτή ἡ ἀκαθαρσία ἀκόμη καί σέ ἀνώτερά της στελέχη(!!), καί ναί μέν
εγνωρίζαμε ὅτι ὁ Καθολικισμός εἶναι διάτρητος ἀπό ὁμόφυλα κρούσματα, ὅμως ἕστω καί
ἔτσι τό ἁμάρτημα αὐτό παρέμενε καταδικαστέο. Τώρα, ὅμως, ὁ Αρχιεπίσκοπος Ἀμερικῆς
ἔρχεται, πρώτος, νά τό παρουσιάσει ὡς ἀποδεκτό, ἔστω καί διά της πλαγίας ὁδοῦ (βάπισμα) ἀντί τῆς εὐθείας (γάμος).
Γνώμη μας εἶναι ὅτι ὁ Ἐλπιδοφόρος πρέπει νά φύγει!! Φοβούμεθα, ὅμως, ὅτι αὐτός πού
τόν ἔστειλε, δηλαδή ὁ Βαρθολομαῖος, δέν θά τόν ἀποσύρει. Ἄλλωστε, «ὅμοιος ὅμοίῳ ἀεί
πελάζει!» Γι᾽ αὐτό, ἐπανέρχεται το θέμα νά ἀπαγκιστρωθεῖ ἡ Ὁμογένεια ἀπό τό Πατριαρχεῖο Κωνσταντινουπόλεως καί νά ἔρθει ἕνας ἱεράρχης ἀπό τἠν Ἑλλάδα, ἐγνωσμένου ἠθικοῦ καί ἐθνικοῦ κύρους, να περισώσει ὅ,τι θά εἶναι δυνατόν νά περισωθεῖ!!!

By Nikos Notaridis

What he did is unforgivable!!

The current Archbishop – ill-fated – of the Hellenism of America, Elpidophoros (…supposedly…), fell into the heinous offense of baptizing the completely innocent, of course, infants who had been adopted by two rich gay men. And, yes, Elpidophoros and most probably also his superior in Constantinople were rewarded, certainly richly, for the “service” to the wealthy “gay” Greek-Americans. However, the “service” they provided to the Church and Society with this act was…DESTRUCTIVE!!

All kinds of problems open up from here on forward. Young Greek-Americans, who already have been poisoned with the poison of “pride,” are not few, unfortunately! And all the more they multiply, since… even in schools this type of “freedom” is taught, i.e., the unnatural and sinful – and despicable – unions. What institution is left to resist and block it? Only the Church. And, yes, we knew until now that even within the Church, there is this impurity, even in its superior echelons (!!), and yes, we knew that Catholicism is riddled with homosexual cases, but even so this sin remained condemnable. Now, however, the Archbishop of America comes to present it as acceptable, even if it is through the oblique way (baptism) instead of the straight one (marriage).

Our opinion is that Elpidophoros must go!! We fear, however, that he who sent him, namely Bartholomew, will not withdraw him. After all, “he is one of the same.” For this reason, it is necessary to untie the Greek-American community from the Patriarchate of Constantinople and bring a hierarch from Greece of known moral and ethnic character to save what is possible to save!!!



  1. Βρε πως άλλαξε η κοινωνία, όπου και να κοιτάξεις
    πληγώνεσαι, το σωστό γίνεται λάθος και το λάθος
    σωστό. Στα χρόνια του Πατέρα μου για να γίνει
    κάποιος Παπάς θα έπρεπε να μαζέψει υπογραφές
    από το χωριό η την ενορία, στο Βασιλικό Ναυτικό
    όπου υπηρέτησα ως σημαιοφόρος ( ανθυπολοχαγός) , εκείνα τα χρόνια δεν έμπαινες
    στη σχολή αν ήσουν τοιούτος…. όλα πλέον άλλαξαν και μάλιστα με τον νόμο της πολιτείας και την βούλα της Εκκλησίας. Τελευταία κάποιος
    φίλος…… παρεξηγήθηκε πως το παρακάνω στην
    κριτική , αν μπορείς φίλε κάνε και εσύ ας είναι
    και λίγη, αν οι πολλοί αν ανακατευόταν στα στραβά έστω και λίγο ίσως να είχαμε προλάβει
    πολλά πράγματα. Το μυστικό που έκανε τον Νοταρίδη να πάρει θέση κατά της μάταιης Ελπίδας το γνωρίζω μόνο εγώ , αλλά και έτσι που
    έγινε είναι θετικό. Μπούχτισε , σιχάθηκε πλέον
    ο κόσμος να βλέπει την αμαρτία και να συγκαλύπτεται από αυτούς που δήθεν υπηρετούν
    την ενημέρωση.

  2. I agree with Nikos Notaridis. He Has to Go!!!
    Furthermore, lest we forget Bart’s arrogant big icon is what you see when you enter the den if inequity outer space building in NYC.

  3. Not even apology is enough to respect or trust Elpidoktonos again… he’s seriously dysfunctional, damaged goods.

    Please God make him leave
    and send us a worthy one!

    • Amin!!!!!! ————————————————————————————————- We still should pray despite how angry we are with what he did, We hope he comes to his senses and repents and reverses his ways in the church. this goes for any clergy member who do not do what is right with God. HE will suffer in hell worse than the average sinner eternally. Don’t they have the comprehension to understand this ? Satan hates everyone, not just those who oppose him, but even those who worshipped him. They are in for a nasty surprise!!!!! Satan is not someone to play with, he hates every human because we are all made in the image of God no matter what road someone takes. Disfunctional sinning Clergy however are in real worse danger than the average sinner!!!!!! Repent every day and say Thank you for another day, No one understands the comprehension of the eternal torture. There is no forgiveness once you leave your body on earth no turning back GET RIGHT WITH GOD NOW!!!!!!! AND DON’T STOP TILL THE VERY END OF YOUR LIFE TIME HERE ON EARTH.


  5. Anyone know if this shrine is part of the “green new steal” solar, wind powered narrative that is going to have europe and parts of the world shivering this winter? While demoncrats line their pockets and eat cake- and people aren’t getting affordable fuel- let’s think back to the biggest supporter of the fraudulent green movement…

  6. Nick-
    As always, your headline movie posters are hilarious! Keep the highly entertaining and most importantly, the enlightening articles coming! Someday soon the Omogenia will awaken with full acknowledgement of what they refuse to admit or still cannot see. Even a blind squirrel every so often will find a nut.

    • Thank you Margaret – that’s the goal, to provide the foundation for the big awakening… It’s mostly for our children and grandchildren, so they live their lives in a healthy community and a better world.

  7. Imagine the FDNY / NYPD heroes in the Towers that died 21 years ago today who didn’t get the Medal of Freedom—but this president gave it to Alex K and made a joke out of all of us.

    As a body of believers, we are irredeemably bankrupt and without honor for tolerating all this for 2 decades.

  8. Spyreas wife Amalia is daughter of late Dr Anastasios S Kassapidis, who got his Osteopathy degree from NYIT in 1993, such high class, SJU & NYIT, no? Just what you need to replace Columbia star quarterback Gene Rossides at AHI?

  9. Many of us have been seeking the intercession of St. Nicholas asking him to prevent this “shrine” from opening and making a mockery not only of his name, but of Orthodoxy.
