Really, really strong words.

I saw this over at AQ. I had to put it up. Whoa. Some really harsh words from the Ukrainian Orthodox Archbishop for the Holy Father.

He's not from the mainstream Ukrainian Orthodox, but a group of excommunicated Catholics:

You can read about them here:

They personally anathematized over 2000 Catholic bishops recently. See here:

I dont care if he is schismatic he tells it like it is.

"Your acknowledgemnet of this so called great event is a total betrayal of Christianity."

Amen

Brings to mind the phrase "more Catholic than the Pope"

According to that Wikipedia article they sound like the SSPX only they were Eastern Catholics.

Yeah on the surface, but they have taken some measures that SSPX has not. They excommunicated (or declared excommunicated) the entire hierarchy, except one bishop, and have declared all their acts invalid, although they still say they are in unity with Pope Benedict XVI (maybe he's the one bishop?). So, unlike the SSPX, they would not pray for the local bishop in the Mass. They don't declare their excommunications unjust due to circumstances of necessity, but rather that the one excommunicating (Husar) was not a Catholic and therefore couldn't excommunicate them at all. Honestly, I find their position pretty confusing--they're kind of half way between sedes and the SSPX.

Odd, I thought only the Pope could excommunicate Bishops.
