So when does a "convicted felon" become just an ordinary sinner like the rest of us? The man was drunk, he groped a woman, he was convicted and he paid the penalty. Or has he not paid a "high enough" price for some? You know... I blush to think what others might think of me if my indiscretions and my sins were made public. And I'm just bold enough to suggest that the same could be said for each and every poster on this forum. Rather than sit in judgment upon this man, why not humbly pray for him and let him be in peace?
The problem here is not with +Demetri, who like all of us is a sinner, and like all of us needs to spend his life in peace (if God grants it) and repentance--I am fond of point out that pride, self-esteem, wrath and sloth surely fetter more souls in Hades than do the sins of the flesh.
The problem is with Metropolitan Philip, who hampered the course laid out for the repentance of bishops who fall into grevious sins, by not setting +Demetri on proper path by deposing him. The reason the felony conviction and sex offender registry status are relevant is that they create scandal. And the only reason Tamara is bringing the matter up at all is the pseudonymous prophecies of Abdullah Khouri, all of which have come true except the last, that Metropolitan Philip would try to reinstate +Demetri in active ministry.
We all wish that +Demetri would be left in peace to repent, and that is one reason among many why we wish that he had been deposed, and one reason among many why we do not wish him to be reinstated as an active auxiliary or diocesan bishop.
