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.
