(ocanews.org: Hat tip: A.J) In Frank Interview with Ancient Faith Radio Metropolitan Philip Slams Episcopal Assembly, GOA, OCA, Fundamentalism & Bishop Mark of Toledo
In a lengthy audio interview with Kevin Allen and John Maddex of Ancient Faith Radio, posted on their website yesterday, Sunday October 10th, Metropolitan Philip of the Antiochian Archdiocese speaks bluntly about his past, Orthodoxy’s present and his vision for the Archdiocese. The 80 year old prelate criticized the Greek Archdiocese, the OCA, Islamic fundamentalism, while revealing the Synod of Antioch had not even read the Chambesy Agreement that created Episcopal Assemblies throughout the world. His harshest criticisms, however, were aimed at Bishop Mark of Toledo, who +Philip did not name specifically, but about whom his references were clear. He all but confirmed +Mark would be transferred out of the Toledo and Midwest diocese at the end of the month. +Philip also confirmed that he himself was worth “millions”, and that his personal wealth, and the gifts he received, would not be included in any internal audit of the Archdiocese.
1. The meaning and future of self rule in the Antiochian Archdiocese.
2. The status of the Bishops in North America and the meaning as well as the ramifications of the title “Auxiliary Bishop.”
3. The finances of the Antiochian Archdiocese and in particular the status of an audit.
4. The view point of His Eminence on the Episcopal Assembly, SCOBA, and the future of Administrative Unity in North America.
We have left the Metropolitan’s remarks intact and unedited to make them available to the audience for their own evaluation and conclusions.
