While the SCOBA Orthodox attack this Canonically Established Church and caused the Schism in American Orthodoxy they ignored the claims of many independents who would claim to be us and claim to be Orthodox. They allowed these independent to "muddy" our name by their silence. To clearly identify us apart from the many false claims of independents we proceeded to do what was necessary such as filing Service Mark applications on our names "The Holy Eastern Orthodox Catholic and Apostolic Church in North America" AND "The Society of Clerks Secular of Saint Basil". These are our names under Common Law. These are also our legal names since we have owned them for over the required 5 years as a Service Mark. Our name "American Orthodox Catholic Church is still our name under Common Law, but is used by many independents. We have a page that lists these independents who are in fact Old Catholic and not Orthodox. Some Ordain women, some have "clergy" of questionable reputation but none are part of this Church now or in the past.
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.
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.
