Ok, then talk. Tell me what you know about him, if anything. PM me if you wish.

Maybe you could tell us why we should care, or are your motives incognito, too?

I thought it would be a Harry Potter thread. I'm so disappointed.

So you're looking for gossip.  How Christian.

Wait, I can hear the response: "BUT IF HES DANGEROUS ZOMG WE SHOULD KNOW ABOUT IT!"

Have fun telling Jesus that someday.

No, I'm looking for the truth about this man. If the allegations I have heard are true, he should be behind bars.

This forum isn't your private blog space for promoting a youtube account. If you want to talk then let's talk.

Word are words, whether audible or written. A video saves writing space. The purpose is to communicate. The method is irrelevant. And I'm not promoting a youtube account. You shouldn't trust your thoughts so much. I am trying to ascertain the facts about this man.

How do you hope to have this man put behind bars by gossiping about him on an Internet discussion forum? Shouldn't you talk to the appropriate law enforcement agencies instead?

One of the moderators rebuked me for not using proper titles when speaking about hierarches, and he sent me this link. But I fail to see any example in any of the links he sent me. Even the title of this thread is "Bishop" Sergios Black. Sometimes I do not refer to heretics using Orthodox designations -bishop, priest, metropolitan, patriarch, etc --since they are not worthy of such titles. "Discipline" away, moderator. Do whatever makes you feel important. Orthodoxy will not be sold. Orthodoxy or death!

Where do I start? Boasting about how you are going to brazenly disobey our rules... Disputing a moderator's directive in public, an act made especially egregious by the fact that the directive was given to you via private message... I guess my next step would be to instruct you to read our forum's rules (HERE and HERE) before you continue posting here, but it appears to me as if you wouldn't care what our rules say even after reading them. Just be warned, then, that we will not let you show such contempt for the forum's members and moderators for long before we restrict your posting privileges via post moderation, muting, or even banning. Consider this your first and only warning before we employ such actual restrictions.

This warning is set to last for the maximum duration of 99 days. If at any time during this warning you choose to continue showing such contempt for the forum, you will be placed on post moderation, a restriction where every one of your posts will need to be approved before it appears on the forum. If you wish to appeal my decision, do so via private message and only via private message to me.

Why is it that the linked to video is asking for information on this man from anyone who "knows" something....and yet the comments are disabled.

In other words....no public discourse....everything incognito.

If you can't say it in the open....then it's not worth saying.

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Orthodoxy may not be sold, but it can just as easily be made to look like the refuge of gossipy hens and self-righteous fools, so I'd be much more concerned with that which we have control over than the supposed "crimes" of a particular bishop that you clearly don't even have evidence to support.
