EDITOR’S NOTE: The Archbishop was quick to follow the advice of the activist Fordham “theologians” George Demacopoulos and Aristotle Papanicolaou, and he paid – and he keeps paying – a huge price… Last year we saw proof of the leading directors, the founders of this corrupt organization buying multimillion-dollar homes for themselves (as if they have worked hard their whole lives…) And now tax documents provide additional proof of the same. Did you hear Elpidophoros do something about his disastrous decision? Did he remove Demacopoulos and Papanikolaou from their “advisor’s” positions? Not only did he not remove, but he was blessing Demacopoulos as he tried to establish an LGBTQ ministry in St.Paraskevi of Greenlawn!!
It does not matter anymore because, with their advice, they accelerated Elpidophoros’s exit from America!.. And they convinced many of the faithful to find a better, truly Orthodox, place to worship (likely ROCOR and OCA – both under the Moscow Patriarchate – and Antiochian, friendly to Russians).
I have a question for Elpidophoros’ handlers at the State Department: Was this indeed their goal for GOA? Was their goal to drive the Greek-American community in big numbers out of their Churches and into Churches that are under the Moscow Patriarchate? If yes, they have achieved it!! Congratulations!!
