As we mentioned a couple of posts ago, our purpose of this blog was never to disparage the people of GOCSA, but to help raise awareness of the lies that are being fed to them from their own management. The hope was that, armed with this information, they may be empowered to stand up to their management themselves and ask questions.

Glory to God, this is now happening. We have already mentioned the meeting that was held on Saturday and the Supreme Court injunction that is being pursued as we type. But further to this, we have also had an email from a concerned GOCSA member (who was at Saturday’s meeting) expressing her own frustrations at Mr Kanavas and the current GOCSA administration, and who decided to take matters into her own hands.

Regular readers (especially from the early days of this blog) are no doubt familiar with the fact that Mr Kanavas uses a number of Facebook pages to spout his lies & propaganda, where it is lapped up by his small but highly devoted band of followers. These pages include:

Most recently he has been using these sites as a platform to promote his upcoming “ordination”, and to try and convince his readers of the validity of the Synod to which they have signed up. There is also a post there which is a veiled legal threat towards anyone who might dare to shout “anaxios!” this Sunday (a threat which carries no legal weight, we might add, because the opportunity to shout “anaxios!” is an integral part of the Orthodox ordination service).

Fed up by lies and threats such as these, Paula Lambrou (the above-mentioned member of GOCSA) decided to take a stand and dared to challenge his statements openly on Facebook. Of course, Mr Kanavas did as we all know that he does when challenged – he simply deleted the comments. Paula, however, anticipated this eventuality and was prepared for it, so she took screenshots in order to have evidence of this censorship. Because she felt it was important for people to know she emailed the screenshots to us for us to use on this blog so that her message could still get out. You can see these below, with the time & date included to show when the were written.

None of Paula’s comments are left on St Nicholas’ Facebook page (at the time of writing). They have all been deleted as Prokopios & the GOCSA executive try to hide the truth from their own members!

Some of the propaganda comments in these screenshots (in particular those from Mr John Lesses, who is the current president of the GOCSA executive committee) are interesting to say the least, and might make the topic of a blog post in the not-too-distant future (hopefully later today).

We would also like to take this opportunity to publicly  thank Paula for this information and for her diligence in these matters, and to apologise that it has taken us this long to get her screenshots up for all to see. We pray that God gives her (and those like her) to continue this fight as we work together towards unity.
