You really need a Western Rite for situations like this.

A simple "Statement from the Chancery of the Synod of Bishops" seems so wimpy by comparison.

But will it be enough to convince those here who stridently defend "Br" Nathaniel? Call me a pessimist ...

That's why they need to go all Becketesque on him.  Black-robed monks, Dies irae, smashed candles, and an archbishop condemning the naughty one to the fires of hell with the devils and reprobates, all in a resonant British accent.  No one can beat that.

No one stays with ROAC, not even this guy.

I believe this to be the work of the Zionist lobby. It is unfair to demonize Brother Nathanael Kapner, he's a sinner like anyone else.
El Señor es tu sombra a tu mano derecha." De día no te molestará el sol, ni de noche la luna. El Señor te guardará de todo mal; guardará tu alma;" guardará tus salidas y tus entradas desde ahora y por siempre. (Salmo 120)
