  1. Wrong choice of words: not inertia.
    Abuse is the correct term.
    The Laity has been ABUSED by church leaders for decades.
    All the chickens have come home to roost.
    Overcome the abuse by holding those responsible accountable and by rebuilding the lost trust.

  2. Time is past due to stop passing the buck … perhaps a bad choice of words. Time is long overdue to hold those accountable for the malfeasance at the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America. The buck stops there and people should be held both accountable and if need be, criminally responsible. No more BS! We have had enough of lies, cover ups, lack of accountability and transparency. This has gone on for way roo long! Suggest begin acting like the Church of Christ they should be!

    1. Greatly Saddened,it is sad ..that your narrative is not directed to the U.S government and Congress ..who you hand over 860 billion dollars a year or about 55% of the revenues of America to a military allowed to wage economic , political , and Military war against the independent countries of the world ..which since, the end of WW2…has resulted in a bunch of White Supremacist racist Aristocrats in the Congress, C.I.A , State Department and Treasury department of America to abuse and slaughter over 22 million foreign Citizens to save them!

      Yes, we have had enough of lies , cover ups , lack of accountability and transparencies…This has gone on for way to long!

      Today, they try to remove another elected leader of a country who threatens to make accountable another operative Joe Biden to a ruling Aristocracy of Billionaire Elitist..who own the U.S government and media…and part of an organized crime family running a protection racket for their servants

      The same group, have made people like, Eric Snowden, Julian Assange, Chelsea Manning and now Donald Trump,.enemies of the state,.because they have exposed a Totalitarian government which not only controls our country..but is attempting to control all the countries of the world thru perpetual wars and Terrorism!

      Like Trump, they are prosecuted for revealing the criminal foreign and domestic policies of Biden, Hillary, Obama, Pyatt accountable for destabilization of the Ukraine, and Biden Blackmail

  3. Some on had to push that button on a computer to transfer all that money. I’m still waiting for the name of that person to be divulged.

  4. Even putting aside that he is the author of the “first without equals” being spouted out of Istanbul, how can we trust the new guy in town when he brings no more consequences for bad acts or transparency as the old guy in town. He has a nice smile and a telegenic presence. But underneath it is the old playbook. Pay, pray and obey. And a false sense of humility.

    1. And Elpi also now has a dog name Hermes. What’s next? A segment on The Food Channel? Elpi makes Lamb Kapama. Or maybe an appearamce on The Kardashians with Alex?
