Anything else is conjecture.
Without a doubt! Conjecture and spin doctoring.
I find it almost funny that one of the bishops that is being portrayed as a chief antagonist against HB was (and continues to be, I might add!) a good friend of HB.
It's an old political tactic - sling mud everywhere and see where it sticks. Make as many outrageous accusations as you can, in order to see who doesn't have an answer, and for what. Not-so-much a Christian thing to do.
If anything, I have to admire HB's restraint. I know he's a firm believer in the freedom of speech and freedom of the press, etc. That's precisely why he's not attempting to stop, or even discourage, the ridiculous accusations that are being made. He trusts that the Lord will reveal the truth in His time.
Personally, I think we may have another St Nektarios of Aegina here.
