Lol, their website is a rabbit hole.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Once Christ has filled the Cross, it can never be empty again.

Not at all! Rather he insists. “I am a wholistic Minister. I cast out the demons from their spirit in prayer, feed their soul with a positive mental attitude – with a burning desire to live a just life with teachings and writings, to thrive and to win. Then I put food in their mouth to give them strength and support them as they face the world. Towards becoming self reliant I empower them with skills that enable them to make money and be financially stable. The glory of God is a person fully alive.”

Humility seems like something he needs to improve  :P

St Makarios, pray for us.

Why are all of these psuedo-Orthodox all "coming out" of the Syriac Orthodox Church? That's what I want to know.

There are plenty of vagante/offshoot groups coming out of all the major players, which has been happening from the beginning. Although I may only think this because I am not yet "fully alive," so take what I say with a grain of salt.

These are probably the same guys that opened a couple of parishes in isolated places across Brazil: http://igrejaorthodoxa.dx.am/

They claim to practice the "Western Byzantine rite", while the liturgy they have in their site looks like a shortened version of St. John Chrysostom's DL.

Also, I don't want to point fingers or anything, but weirdly enough they have a section on their site dedicated to UAOC apology, another section calling Ukraine their "spiritual homeland" and their links section firstly mentions many UAOC sites, then some other uncanonical churches, then they start to fit OO, canonical EO and EC links in.

Byzantine Orthodox Catholic Greek Syriac Church?  :o

Maybe they'll film more episodes of Seinfeld.

In that episode, they were Latvian Orthodox which is canonical.

From their website: 
Our Primate, His Eminence Metropolitan Mar +Anthony was consecrated on April 18, 2011 to the Episcopacy of the Byzantine Catholic Church by Archbishop Peter Tang  and Co consecrated by Archbishop Jean Ndjewel of the Old Catholic Church. His Consecration was accepted into Orthodoxy through cheirothesia in February 2013 by Metropolitan Stephen Thomas and Archbishop Timothy Kjera of the Syriac Greek Antiochian Orthodox Catholic Church, Sharon Pennsylvanian, USA. He was issued a bull of Cheirothesia tou presbyteriou, thus his entrance into the Oriental Orthodoxy through the Syrian Orthodox Church of Antioch.

This pretty much tells you everything you need to know.
