It must be noted here that much of the published materials on the internet is on the "orthodoxwiki" site. They appear to have a free hand at publishing their one sided pseudo-facts in an attempt to make their jurisdictions appear to be the American Church and to make it appear that this canonical Church no longer exists. Our existance proves the Schism in American Orthodoxy which they freely write about not considering their admissions prove our claim of Schism.
Read about the writings by clergy from other jurisdictions that mislead the reader who does not know much about this Church. Their writings defame this Church and make it appear Abp. Ofiesh and other clergy were not orthodox or christian.
When the Day of Judgement arrives these Orthdox clergy throughout history will have more to answer for that the average person. They have restricted the sacraments (Mysteries) and even denied communion to some people who were entitled according to the canons - which the canons refer to as a form of "death". In the case of Abp. Ofiesh and Bishops Sophronius and Ignatius of Blessed Memory they were and are treated in an unchristian and unholy manner by many who claim they are clergy. This Church continues to suffer a similar fate from these Orthodox successors. Their hate and lies shall speak for itself! But we are in our rightful and canonical jurisdiction and we intend to stay. We are canonical in the true sense of the word and recognized by those who count. By the Roman Catholic Church who prior to 1054 was the first among equals in Orthodoxy and one of the original 5 historic patriarchates and by some member Churches of the Anglican communion. We ignore those "orthodox" who violate the canons and act in an unchristian manner towards us and others.
