For instance, in 2001, the MP created in the USA its own ROCOR, formed by infiltrated individuals, like Met. Laurus, Met Hilarion and others, who with the unlimited resources provided by the russian government, left ROCOR taking with them Churches, relics, money, and everything they could.
To be fair, can you give us any evidence to support this new allegation?
Absolutely! From the book "The KGB in Russian Immigration" by Konstantin Preobrazhensky published in the USA by Liberty Publishing of NY the information about the unfiltered persons in provided.
In Chapter 2, entitled "Operation ROCOR" he describes how the Russian Government through the Moscow Patriarchate is achieving its goal to put church-going Russian immigrants all over the world under its control, and to make the church buildings of the ROCOR the state property of the Kremlin. Thus the Russian government will turn all ROCOR properties into outposts of Russian State interests in America and other Western nations.
Preobrazhensky writes the following: " Metropolitan Laurus Skurla has been quietly yielding the ROCOR to the MP for many years. It is very likely that Laurus was recruited back in the 1970's during his trips in the Cold War period to communist Czechoslovakia. Laurus made these trips to visit his brother, a known Communist Party leader. How did Laurus obtain a Visa to the Communist Russian satellite nation of Czechoslovakia so easily during the Cold War period? Only those with close ties with the KGB could have done so during this period.
In another public article, Preobrazhensky called "poisonings in ROCOR" posted in portalcredo, describes the death of Metropolitan Philaret, i.e. Saint Philaret the Confessor of ROCOR, as related to poisoning and described how Met. Hilarion (Kapral) rushed into the room, and immediately cleaned the vomit coming from St Philaret's mouth. When Met. Hilarion was in charge of the Synodical Building, as Bishop of Manhattan, a sergianist seminarian stole the founding act of ROCOR, and handed it to the Moscow Patriarchate. The access to the Synodical Building in NYC is very restricted, no one can simply walk in, specially not into the offices where such important documents are kept.
Curiously is the order of the appointment of the leaders of the new ROCOR, first Metropolitan Laurus
, now Metropolitan Hilarion
. It wouldn't surprise me if the next in the bureaucratic escalator would be Mark Arnt.
Seeing those who get most of benefits, is an accurate way to see who had been working for the formation of that MP dependency.
On the other hand, the formation of the new ROCOR was followed by various meetings with President Putin, both in the Russian Embassy in the USA, who again and again offered them full support.
Representatives of the new ROCOR launched a series of legal actions, to take Churches, holy relics and money. To show how they work, I will bring to your attention the case of the Monastery of the Icon of the Mother of God of Vladimir. The new ROCOR wanted to take the Monastery, and all what's in there, expelling the elderly innocent nuns living there.
In the first stage of their tactic, they tried to send nuns to take control of the Monastery, they bullied the resident nuns, but they were always sent back home, so, the new ROCOR official hired lawyers, and sued the nuns. In of of the depositions, the elderly Igumenya Evgenia, suffered a heart attack. In an off court settlement, the nuns could keep the all the relics, their 5 miracle working icons, and some of their money, but they were forced to give the new ROCOR a lot of money, the monastery in which they now live, and other assets.
They don't care if they leave innocent elderly women on the street, all they care is to carry on the plans of giving everything to their new superiors.
I hope you are satisfied with some of the reasons of why I have such an opinion.
By the way, I am not defending myself, as I can not do this under any circumstance now You're being warned (duration: 1 month) for not referring respectfully to the names of hierarchs of the Orthodox Church. In the future, understand that all hierarchs of our Churches (ROCOR, MP, etc.) should at least be addressed with a level of respect (even if you don't support them) - this same respect is due your own hierarchs, even if others don't support them.
If you feel that this warning is in error, PM Fr. Chris to appeal.
