Truly a travesty! This guy should have been suspended or deposed. Maybe someone will take the good bishop on a long fishing trip to St. Paul Island.

I was raised in the Orthodox Church and left 20 years ago – I am agnostic and happy. I am a proud gay man and the Orthodox Church does not allow for such practice. That said, the Orthodox Church is being “punked” by two closeted homosexuals (Nikolay & Isodore) who desperately need pscychological treatment. Repression is a bitch.

A sad state of affairs: BIshop N had long been known as one with a sharp tongue and abrasive personality and one to make poor judgments,sometimes impulsively. Why they posted him to Alaska in the first place baffles me. The poor man does not have the ability to "see"himself as others might. Elements of the narcissistic personality disorder are quite evident. This is very difficult to treat because the narcissist is masking an underlining self hatred or feelings of inadequacy. Pray for the man and the Orthodox Christians in Alaska.
