Thats a bit like the conundrum in Monty Python's The Life of Brian:

Brian: I'm not the Messiah! Will you please listen? I am not the Messiah, do you understand? Honestly!
Girl: Only the true Messiah denies His divinity.
Brian: What? Well, what sort of chance does that give me? All right! I am the Messiah!
Followers: He is! He is the Messiah!
:laugh:  :laugh: YOMANK!

This forum is so awesome. You can find cool jokes even in the most serious threads.
Though I've walked the valley of the shadow of the death, I've fallen not. Not completely. Not yet.

Yes! hehehe I like humour too.

Everything I posted is backed up, like what has been said about the persons you mentioned Irish Hermit, come from public resources, which have already been checked by the authorities of this room. And if I talk about you its because I know you in real life, and you know it.

It amazes me how some actually know how I feel, and have the nerve to say I write in anger, without even knowing me. We must be filled with clarvoyants  :P 

I must admit I've fallen in assuming things and judging, I am not innocent, I'm just bringing this to our attention to we are aware of this fault, and may correct ourselves.

I never felt cornered, I am used to worst things in real life, and I never fall into the low and vile tactic of circle jerking, that's not one of my sins.

I would have to agree with you on that point.  The "authorites of this room" have declared themselves convinced by your evidence that there is a likelihood that Metropolitan Hilarion Kapral, First Hierarch of the Russian Church Abroad, may be guilty of being accessory to the muder of Metropolitan Philaret.

 All I can say to that is that my opinion of the ability of the "authorities of this room" to discern reliable evidence from fabricated and malicious evidence.... well, enough said.

One would also have to wonder why, if they have been convinced by your evidence, they have not acted responsibly and taken their concerns to the Police as I presume you have done already?   :police:

That's amazing!  Are you saying you live in New Zealand?  Do we have Zarist parishes here?

There is no piety in me, hence nothing to cure. I am the worst of all sinners, and everyone except me shall be saved.

As we would all know from the lives of the Saints the only people who can say this with honesty and credibility are saints highly evolved on the path of theosis.  And so.... George....  :P

Even for me with my brain nicely honed with three glasses of Gewurztraminer, this thread is getting a little odd.   :laugh:

What is really odd is the behavior of the Man from Oz over the past month or so. Something is bothering him and he just does not know how to fess up and ask for support. I really do not know but I am getting that weird feeling that he needs help and he knows it but is making himself behave like a jack ass to ward off sympathy and help.

If you know Fr. Ambrose in real life, why not go speak to him in person. Instead you hide as a coward in anonymity and try to assassinate his reputation. What does that say about your character or integrity?

Thread locked, pending moderatorial review, as having become little more than a continuation of the conflicts that got this thread locked.
