The Ecclesiastical Abstention doctrine seeming implies that there is no requirement of US Law for Due Process in Ecclesiastical proceedings and trials.

So he's like a friar then.

FWIW, an 84 year old nun got three years for breaking in to Oak Ridge, TN nuke plant.

He was supposed to stay in the rear with the gear.

In a letter to "concerned loved ones" shared with The Lima News, Hodges called the rally "joyful, positive and orderly."

Why do people keep saying the thing that we all know is false?  It was angry and menacing as the rest of the rallies.

Russian Orthodox.  Mmmmmmm.

It's worth nothing that whole bunches of BLM protestors were released with no charges, because they didn't break any laws.

/I'm going to wait and see what actually happens to Republican terrorist before I start saying they are going away for years.

An Orthodox Priest?

Why is he getting defrocked? He was certainly doing Mother Russia's bidding.

Wow, conservatives are even supply-side when it comes to faith. Most Christians believe in the body and blood of Christ... I have no interest in the fluid involved with trickle-down salvation.

He got caught. If he doesn't keep his mouth shut his de-frocking will come with de-fenstration and de-sanguination.

FTFA: "The rally was advertised as an entirely peaceful protest for election transparency. To me (and nearly everyone I talked to at the rally), it's not about Trump vs. Biden, or Left vs Right, but is about free and fair elections. I honestly believe we have lost our democratic republic," Hodges stated.

You lost and then you idiots stormed the Capitol under the insistence of a sentient orange. THAT sounds like the attack on democracy right there.

The Orthodox Church.  That's helpful.

It's a common term for Roman Catholic, Anglican, and Orthodox priests, basically meaning unattached.  Also applies to Tractors but in a different sense, where it means toys for tractors.

"What defrok?" -- some supply priest.

/ Or words to that effect.

Technically, all Roman Catholic priests should be unattached, though some may have their FB set to 'it's complicated'.

I don't know how orthodox does it, but a friar is a monk that doesn't live in a monastery and is also an ordained priest who can take confession and give last rites and whatnot.  The fat friar is a stereotype with some truth, and some friars were known as notorious spongers and drunkards.

Lithuanian Orthodox?

Wait, does the article say Russian?

There's a LOT of Orthodox churches out there.

This guy is full of shiat just based on his own statements. It was a joyful and orderly protest, but you felt the need to warn the police and then leave. No way all those things are true.

This guy frocked around and got defrocked.

String 'im up

/now that we know the truth about churches...

'De-frocking' sounds weird.  It sounds like you're about to remove his dress.  And I don't want to see that.  No thank you.
 
2021-01-21 5:47:03 PM  
Send him to prison

There were three young ladies from Birmingham
And this is the scandal concerning 'em
They lifted the frock and tickled the cock
Of the bishop engaged in confirming 'em

Now the bishop was nobody's fool
He attended a good public school
So he lowered his britches and buggered the biatches
With his ten-inch Episcopal tool

Then up spoke a lady from Kew,
Who said, as the Bishop withdrew,
"The vicar is quicker, thicker and slicker,
And longer and stronger than you."

Hanging, drawing and quartering always worked pretty well for us Brits. You guys should try it sometime.
