Content removed for libel against a poster.  You are fortunate for now that the warning system is down, otherwise you would be on post modertion (and when the system is back up - be sure this will happen).  If you stand by your accusations, then provide proof to me in a PRIVATE MESSAGE; otherwise leave your baseless slanders out of the board.

The Manmdi-Lani knows of this and he laughs at you. Brother William and Mubai also know what I am talking about.


I'm glad they know what you are talking about because we certainly don't. Care to clarify?

Hmmm...

I myself am puzzled as to who these 'people' are...

I searched the net for Manmdi-Lani, and only came up with two references: one was a site about vacations on Maui, and the other was a contest potentially giving away an iPod.

Hardly people who would join with me in my evil plot to rule the world by gaining a toehold on OC.net... ;)

Brothers and Sisters! This is of great concern to me! Do you not see the deception? Have you not heard of this "mans" affiliation with the evangelical Rev. Ted Haggard and the games they play?


IamSaved---

I just recently came across a news article that had this person's name, and so I now see the connection you were trying to make...

I am deeply saddened by your accusation, and I need to speak now before people start may be tempted to respond in anger against you, and then sin by doing so.

As background, this evangelical minister (Rev.Haggard) has been accused of paying money for men to have unnatural carnal relations with him. He also has spoken out against gay marriage, and so the media enjoys the hypocritical aspect of this situation.

Your false post saddens me on two points:

1. I am a priest in the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America. Your unsubstantiated claim that I am in any way involved in similar 'pursuits' as those alleged against Rev. Haggard are not only spurious and libelous, but also may be personally damaging as my parishioners, current and future, may hear of your bizarre and false claim.

2. Equally as potentially damaging, you are also accusing me of being an Evangelical. I am not now, have ever been, and never will be a member of that group.

I urge you to retract your false accusation, which may be actionable in a court within this country.

+Fr. Chris

+Fr. Chris,

I don't know if "Iamsaved" can be located, but I think his words are certainly actionable as damaging to your reputation, as a Priest in our Church.

Iamsaved,

I urge you to tread VERY LIGHTLY because I would only be to happy to make you regret what you wrote.  +Fr. Chris has a lot of friends here who do not need to be prompted to lending a helping hand.

I'm tempted to write something a lot less charitable, but out of total respect for +Fr. Chris, I will refrain.

====

Brothers and sisters! Please forgive me! Fr. Chris I beg your forgiveness!! I had no idea that you were a real priest!!! I feel so ashamed. I was simply trying to make a joke.

SouthSerb99,

My Brother in The Universal Spirit! I beg your indulgence for one more question. This "hand" that you wish to lend Fr. Chris, this is commonly known as a "reach-around", no? Is that the correct term, brother? Forgive me if I offend. Your man-love for Fr. Chris is also a gift from the Universal Spirit. I do not wish to offend you or your En-lofee spirit.

One more question my brothers. Which one of you pitches and which on catches? Forgive me if I did not phrase that right! I have only heard of this "man-love". I do not wish to offend - only to be better informed.

Forgive Me my brothers!

To locate "Iamsaved," you'd need to subpoena his ISP to get the person using that IP address.  If it's a home address, it'll be easy.  If it's a work or public computer he's on, you'd then need to get times and users who were on at the appropriate times.  It would take some legwork, but it's doable.  Basically, it's the same thing police do to break up child porn rings.

OK mods please split IamSaved's posts off to a new thread so as not to distract from Fr Chris's welcome.

IamSaved, you are coming at us from a perspective I am not familiar with. Would you kindly tell us who you are and what religion or spiritual tradition you are coming from and let us know what interests you about our forum? I think it would make it easier on all of us if we knew what your status is so we can have open discussions.

Also, your post above seems to suggest that forum members above are engaged in homosexual activity. That is how I am reading it.  We Orthodox Christians do not believe in such behavior. SouthSerb was offering to help his friend in legal matters, not in any other way.

If you are just trying to get a rise out of us, we will figure that out pretty quickly and they will ban you from here. So you basically have one chance to explain what you are all about. Sorry to be so blunt, but your posts are a bit concerning to many of us.

To be blunt, he is a troll. THis goes on from time to time and sadly I must let you know when one comes, several how up afterwards. They work in packs and troll boards and terrorize the moderators with ignorance and obscene postings. I work on another board where we were hammered with trolls for close to two years. I have seen this too many times, so I am letting you know now that his intentions are moot: to Troll this area if you allow him and then blow up the board with porn or something else to troll with. So ban him before it gets worse.

Brother Panagiotis! do not call me such names! I am a Kazakhstanian! I am simply trying to understand my new country. I think what you have called me is what they call libelose and my good friend SouthSerb99 will take his hand to you if you do not say that you are freberdenuson!! Do you admit that you are freberdenuson??

Brothers and Sisters. Forgive me! I have caused confusion and delay. I am so sorry for youre misunderstanding of my intentions. The Universal Spirit is inside each and every one of us and even in the penut buter sandwich that I eat for lunch everyday in the park. I share the crust with the birds. They love it so. Once when I was in the park there was a man who was also there and he did not share his sandwich with the birds. I never saw him again. So now I always share my sandwich with the birds. I saw the movie.

Wow, I've been accused of many things in my life, but "man love".... that is the funniest one I've ever heard.  ;D

In fact, I thought it was so amusing I even shared it with my wife.  See, clowns really can make adults laugh.

Really pathetic, but still funny. (not in an original and intelligent way, rather the pimple faced juvenile way).  ;)

I found that funny, at least briefly.

Honestly, what is freberdenuson???
If its something from the movie or something crass, then I dont get it. I am not "hip" so to speak as I have not been a prat of the secular world for many years, at least, say 9 years on fashion, style, music and slang. Alot happens when you get married and start having kids.

So if this freberdenuson is something funny then you wasted your time on me.

It says under ABOUT US that "We believe sin is merely 'missing the mark,'" and that "the life of God and the life of humankind are identically the same, and so are one."

Looks like this Center for "Spiritual" Living promotes an idea of believing in anything what anyone can make up. For example, their heresy that Heaven does not need to be earned, can be mentioned as a proof of such a conclusion.
