Well, the crosses ARRRRRE nice, but a Patriarch with FIVE!!!!! crosses?
? That makes me senior even to the Ecumenical Patriarch, doesn't it? If so, I'll make you Archons of *MY* Patriarchal Throne, and all you have to do to receive this honor is to send donations to me c/o OrthodoxChristianity.netCommunity ASAP.
Y'all hurry now!
