Formal Complaint

Of

Violations

of the
Sacred and Divine Canons
By Orthodox Clergy

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ + ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Canons violated

Insult the Bishop: c55 of 85c
Fabricate charges: c6 of 7c
Only a synod or council of bishops has the authority to charge a bishop: c9 of 30C & 141c
Attempting vengeance twice: c32 of 92c
By these ongoing attacks Abp. Ofiesh suffered greatly during his lifetime: cXVII of 20c
The theft of his good name since he reposed: c3 of 12c, cLXI of 92c
The theft of Our (Church) good name: cLXXI of 85c and the concord of LXXII
They claim that Bp. Sophronius suspended Abp. Ofiesh and later excommunicated Bp. Ignatius, months after Ignatius walked away from this Church: c XI of 30c
We view all this writing as a conspiracy (plot) against Abp. Ofiesh and this Church: c XVIII of 30c
If they can make Abp. Ofiesh appear to be the one who violated the canons to such an extreme they can then attempt to show we do not exist as the Church did not deserve to continue by his action. This presents a problem today since no tribunal was called while he lived and he claimed publicly that "God told him to marry" which no Orthodox tribunal questioned in his lifetime.
