During the Watergate days Senator Sam Ervin was right. He said “follow the money."
Once again the Denver Metropolitan, by his latest correspondence proves that in his mind “it is all about the money.” He wants to get his greedy hands on the Parish’s money. All the money that our Parish/Community has, in the accounts he has referenced, belongs to the Community. The money belongs to the Greek Orthodox Church of Greater Salt Lake. That money can ONLY be disbursed by the commands of the community's General Assembly; not his.
We have only one answer for him: Μολών Λαβέ! It is the answer that the Greeks gave to the Persians. It is the reason that the 300 Spartans sacrificed themselves against tyranny.
The Denver Aghios flip-flops on his word. He prevaricates.
We need immediate action to repel the aggressive, unchristian actions and words of the Denver Metropolitan. This fight will never end until the Denver Metropolitan is replaced by a caring and loving man of God. And, the sooner the better.
Filakia to all.
P.S. Please distribute as widely as you can, and ask our parishioners, and those in other parishes, to join the fight against the Denver Metropolitan's inequities and offensive conduct.
