An Orthodox priest whose church is in Fairfield, California was arrested Thursday on several counts of child molestation.

From the article:
Quote
According to Fairfield Police, Ruark had photographed the alleged victims naked and most of the incidents happened at the church when the pastor was alone with the victims.

The incidents involving the five alleged victims go back to 1994 and they are now between 20 and 24 years old.

I'm surprised Tallitot wasn't the first to bring this up on OC.net.  He usually jumps on stories like this right away.

your boasting about how you use your time isn't germaine either. And yet you did it.  Although you do take a delight in such things, so I guess it is just fuel for the fire.

Are you disappointed that the archbishop turned him in to the authorities?  Did that wipe out your surfing for scandal on this?

Love the Orthos making the scandal about Tallitot.

And the outcry similar to the RC scandals is where?

Father is the only who made a sane comment in here on the OP.
