Re: Re: Re: [SOCM-FORUM] P C Alexander's nomination for Presidency
- my position is clear.
1. I am a member of TRVm and KPDY Syrian Orthodox parishes.
2. I feel that our leadership is deliberately flouting court orders. I keep
quiet because I do not think they like to hear any dissent. First it was me,
now it is Cori Pathickal etc.
3. Reg PCA my only point was that a President can in no way interfere with
our petty church politics. So our objection is only because he belonged to
the other group. In any case we need not as a church take a view on things
like Presidential election. Our people vote for Oommen Chandi, their people
vote for Thankachan Chettan and jacob. When Justice Balakrishnan's father
died, aged 92 or so, laid up with paralysis for 4 years, on the eve of the
SC verdict some of our people said it was because of our prayers. Sorry, my
conscience revolts! In fact I have signed off this forum because I find it
becomes a distraction in my spiritual life. I try to forget our leaders
committing contempt of court: e.g. the southern diocese has no bishop with
the benefit of status quo since Perumpilly Thirumeni died, but we pretend as
if Koorilose Thirumeni's office has legal sanctity. When Thirumeni comes I
assist, of course, but that only shows my respect for his KAIVAPPU. People
do not understand simple things, what can I do! After 95 there is only one
church. Those who do not want to be part of that church can still keep
connection with Antioch through EAE, Simhasana Church and Honavar mission.
Thus the court provides for two streams here, but when we say that we must
have the cake and eat it too , then, it becomes illegal AS THINGS STAND NOW.
The parish autonomy has two dimensions. One relates to its administration.
The KPDY school, e.g., is exclusively within the autonomy of the KPDY
parish; but Sc has held that AS PART OF MALANKARA CHURCH the parish is bound
by the 34 Constitution. We find it difficult to get senior lawyers to argue
our case now!See also the other shorter reply,
