You have been reprimanded by the administrator for violations incurred by your comments and yet you believe what you said is true.
Rules of the forums are not supreme nor do they have any moral value. They are no more than organizational tools. I did not object to the application of these rules nor to the discretion of the moderator, but it does not decide what is wrong and what is right.
The fact is that Anba David is protecting a heretical brother who happens to be a priest. I cannot find any other word to describe this priest, regardless of whether or not the forum rules allow for the use of this word or not. The moderator might do some effort and suggest an expression to substitute the word.
The heresy of his brother is confirmed by his teachings about being one and the same with Protestants, in which he totally disregards any notion of Orthodoxy. His worship is Protestant and his teachings are Protestant.
The fact is that this priest has abandoned the church where he was ordained for worldly matters. He has used the influence of this bishop to extract a huge service termination penalty although he is the one who resigned. Their demonic efforts were overlooked by an ailing Pope who lost his grip on the church, and they have attributed every single heresy and action to this Pope.
This priest , aided by his brother, has lobbied to stop the building of what they consider a rival Coptic church with all dirty tricks that you can imagine.
Whether he is qualified to be a diocesan bishop does not concern me. There is room for disagreement. My opinion is that he is very shallow in his thoughts, ignorant when it comes to theology, not inspiring and lacking any spirituality. I would not have cared if his brother was not this priest who has been active in destroying the churches here in Toronto.
You have multiple members give you legitimate responses to show why Bishop David is worthy to be diocesan bishop.
These are their opinions. But they did not refute the fact that this bishop is aiding his brother to destroy any Orthodoxy in Toronto. This bishop appears in heretical gatherings to market his brother's strategy. He facilitates this spiritual prostitution. He suppresses other orthodox churches , who are not in his jurisdiction but do not follow his brother's heretical methods.
No one also addressed my question of what qualifies a person to be a bishop and whether the ordinations of the past were performed according to biblical guidelines or not. I see the ordination of Bishop David as a good example of ordaining a nobody, in a spiritual sense, to this holy rank. My reference to the night club business might have been ill advised, but it is the truth.
What more can we do to show you your comments and attitude against Bishop David and the Coptic clergy is wrong?
Not all coptic clergy. The majority are honorable.
However, I have been taught that the most important task for a bishop is to perserve the Orthodox faith. This is why I admire my father Anba Raphael, and my teacher Anba Macarius, and Abona Morocs Milad, and Abona Dawoud Lam3y.
It is not because of their handsome looks (they are not) nor their public relation abilities (they are lacking in this area), it is because of their holy rank that showed fruits in them and therefore they are worthy of honor.
But those clergy who are rotten and corrupt, they have to be exposed. I am not criticising anyone because he is a thief, or an adulterer, or because we have personal disagreements. I have concerns regarding the Orthodox faith.
I am not asking to be confrontational. I truly want us all to have one mind and one heart. One faith with love to each other. Otherwise, it will be an embarrassment to call ourselves Christian.
This is a step forward. It is definitely a noble feeling. Thank you.
Before we enjoy this unity, we have to eliminate the heretics from the church.
In any case, what started as an innocent question
resulted in a warning and will end up with post moderation or worse.
Calling the bishop's brother "heretical" is another ad hominem. As Mina noted, you could have condemned his actions without resorting to name calling, and I do believe you knew better. You are on post moderation for 30 days.
