GOC-K Priest Refuses to Join ROCOR-A; Accuses it of Complacent Cyprianism

September 04, 2014 (Source: www.portal-credo.ru)

Apparently Fr. Constantine Kochegarov, a GOC-K priest in the Moscow region of Russia, has refused to accede to the GOC-K Synod’s transfer of all its former missions, parishes, and clergy in Russia and Ukraine. The GOC-K had decided previously that all its missions and clergy in Russia/Ukraine would be placed under the ROCOR-A. However, Fr. Constantine Kochegarov has refused to do this, as long as Met. Agafangel and the ROCOR-A will not condemn Cyprianism as well as cease liturgical commemoration of Pat. Ireneaus of Jerusalem.

As noted previously, the Bulgarian members of the GOC-K had similar objections (though much more stringent in their demands).

Fr. Constantine said he would go under Met. Agafangel’s omophor as soon as Met. Agafangel and the ROCOR-A Synod condemned Cyprianism as an heresy. There seems to have been some additional details contained in the above link; for example it is stated that the former Synod in Resistance bishops were received in some manner by some sort of prayer while kneeling before Abp. Kallinikos, that Met. Agafangel initially objected to much but was convinced after 10 hrs of arguments, and a promise was given by Met. Agafangel  that he would no longer receive people from the MP who were not baptized by triple immersion (as we know, this seems to have been one of the issues that the Abp. Kallinikos, when only metropolitan, objected to about the planned RTOC communion agreement).

Fr. Constantine, nevertheless, seems hopeful that Cyprianism will eventually die out and the GOC position will be triumphant.

    Metropolitan Dimitri Kyriakou, the GOC (Kallinikos) used for his narcotic-game: previously he perfidious used HOCNA for formation of the narco-chain, from Latin America to Europe (particularly Greece) received over HOCNA much illegal money, he makes a sly twist to the GOC-in; but the narco-business not work alone, he makes the “blessing” of the former member of the Synod of Matthew – (πρώην μέλος της Συνόδου του Ματθαίου) Archbishop Kallinikos, head GOC’s.

      I think you’ve just passed the point of no return and will have to hawk your insanity elsewhere. I am as sympathetic as anyone in regards to mental illness but you need to seek treatment and stop posting ridiculous rants about decent people. (Posting a picture of everyone’s favorite vagante isn’t related to your post or the subject either)

  2. Bishop Photios says:

    Too late we learn who he is and what does.
    The GOC is aware of what doing Dimitri Kyriakou as a narco dealer, but we know also that he is addicted to the use of drugs, and therefore GOC tolerate his nastranost. For us his situation uncanonical. And, as it is written, “Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.” (Matth. XIV 13), and in another place it says, “Vengeance is mine, says the Lord.”

  3. dr. Constantine says:

    Metropolitan Demetrios he addicted to methadone (look at his narco face) but treat him…

    As with other people who consume opiods in high amounts, methadone addicts often experience symptoms such as constipation, drowsiness, nausea, weight loss (this is has been observed at Dimitri), irregular menstruation, contracted pupils, and a suppressed cough reflex. These symptoms do not necessarily indicate addiction, but they can be a warning sign, especially if they are prolonged or they grow worse.

    Signs that a patient is experiencing addiction can include a need to use increasingly higher doses of the drug to achieve the same effect, the use of very high doses of methadone in general, refusal to adhere to a dosage schedule, combining methadone with other drugs, hiding methadone usage, or expressing a desire to stop using methadone, but being unable to do so. Someone suffering from methadone addiction may be in a state of denial or he or she may hide the addiction, fearing the social consequences or the intervention of concerned friends and family members. Evasive behavior, vehement denials of drug dependence, and signs of stress during periods of methadone deprivation are also signs of methadone addiction… I think you understand what I’m saying.

    Any more comments that are made accusing someone of something have to be substantiated. I’m new to moderating comments in this fashion, but, it does seem libelous to just allow people to start making negative comments in fashion they were.
