Addressing the slanderous allegations made against me by The regurgitated Milan Synod Brew Deacon in one of his newly created cyber slander blogs
* AS A SIDE NOTE, THE FACT THAT HE AND HIS CURRENT WIFE HAD BOTH BEEN MARRIED IN THE ORTHODOX CHURCH, THEN DIVORCED, DISQUALIFIES HIM FROM BEING ANY FORM OF CLERGY, EXCEPT OF COURSE, IT DOESN'T SEEM TO MATTER A BIT TO HIS CURRENT, VAGANTE, METROPOLITAN JOHN LoBUE.
"he felt years later that he could anonymously introduce himself to my wife as “a dog, a big dog”
"How do I know this was Minas? Well, that’s the really amazing part. He told me."
True, I did tell him, years later, when doing work for him on NFTU. Before I became aware of his narcissistic self serving nature, his jurisdictional ecumenism agenda, and his vagante and un-canonical status as a Milan Synod deacon.
I had been sending him news tips for quite some time and it was his wife who contacted asking me to please be a part of their staff. I hadn't realize just what she was asking at the time and said OK. Later I found out that they wanted me to be on staff and post directly using the dashboard. I was a bit surprised yet since I had already accepted I thought I may as well go along with it and see how it goes with helping them. I ended up doing most of the legwork for a long time for free while they used their new found leisure time to crete other blogs and who knows what else. After a while, I wanted to clear up the air with what happened on Facebook years before. But really deep down I was hoping they would still be angry about it so I would have a good excuse to leave. Both Suaiden's had gotten comfortable with me there and began treating me as some kind of paid employee and talking down to me. When I did tell him it was me on FB he just laughed about it and said not to worry, he understood, accepting my explanation. Of course he did, he wouldn't want to lose his workhorse over a misunderstanding. So, I continued to serve this jerk for a while longer.
Now he's making a big deal out of it and changing his story.
"Minas was apparently embroiled in a fight in the Kimisis parish of the GOC-Kallinikos in Florida where he had been slandering the parish board– he referred to it in conversation with me as “the Kimisis (sic) mafia”– on (surprise!) anonymous Facebook accounts"
This part is really laughable. Yes I did refer to the parish board as the Kimissis mafia in a conversations with him. But, the part that I said this to him on a anonymous FB accounts is a total lie, hogwash to put it gently. where does he come up with this stuff ? Oh yea, it's JS. BTW, how do you tell if he's lying ? Easy, he's moving his lips and, or, his fingers across his keyboard of course.
"About a month after the dog incident, Minas became a frequent and commenter on NFTU, and wanted to reach out to me personally."
Total lie ! It was years later that I did any work for him or told him it was me. His wife is the one who reached out to me to help them
BTW, something funny, after I broke with them JS made a posting on the Ecafe asking for volunteers which read "Hungry Dogs Wanted to help on the NFTU news team" Another funny thing,he had related to me that he felt his NFTU was in some sort of competition with them for readers and if I had any idea's how we could best them. Later, he managed to somehow talk the Ecafe owner to allow him to provide links to his articles on their sidebar. Ecafe already had Portal Credo on their sidebar. After NFTU got on they were both on it for a while, then Portal Credo disappeared from it altogether, another coup for JS. Now, it can be said since JS got his hooks in it and the lack of interest shown to it by the owner, other than to list it on his resume, that and the current moderators who have made it very tribal with it's private forums, that the site has really gone downhill as far as it's importance as a True Orthodox message board is concerned. You could say JS is now a not so silent partner.
Oh boy, this is getting tiresome, let me try to end this. No, I never got sued by anyone at Kimmissis.
If Joe didn't need me and thought that way all that time why didn't he do something about it ? Why was I the one to leave NFTU and have him crying sour grapes in an email to the then Archbishop Chrysostomos of SIR (now Bishop Chrysostomos with GOC_K) saying he had considered me his friend and trying to get him involved to get me back on NFTU ? Why did AB Chrysostomos gently but totally rebuked him?
BTW, Met. Chrysostomos had also put down his entire entire synod as not meeting the criteria as a valid Orthodox jurisdiction in a response to another letter he and a couple others in his group had sent him not too long ago. Narcissist that he is, he actually posted this response to his letter and published it, counting it a victory that he even got a negative reply! The mind of a narcissist certainly is a senseless and dangerous thing that is best ignored.
"Apparently they don’t know what a “threat” is. Threatening people with violence, as Minas has, is a threat"
I threatened who with what?
"From there, it only gets worse. Minas wanted off NFTU. Publicly of course, I said “sad to see
you go”, et cetera. But in my mind I heard this:"
At this point in his rambling post he inserts a You Tube video of Handel's Messiah, how original. I'll take the liberty of inserting one that portrays what he was really hearing in his mind
