KP priests in Murica are the best of the best, for sure.

It doesn't say Kievan Patriarchate anywhere in the article you cite.  ANd also, the article makes it clear that he's a former priest.

A former rector, not a former priest. And I found the Church he is from using my extraordinary hacking skills (ie. typing the parish name into google).

[Oleh Zhownirovych had led the Ukrainian Orthodox Holy Ascension Cathedral for 15 years, and had been married with two children. But his wife and children eventually left him, and last year, the church severed ties with him because of his drinking, said Walter Mohuchy, vice president of the Holy Ascension church council.

I wonder if the parish council made any attempt to get professional help for the priest's alchohol and marriage problems?

so rather than pray for a man who is -clearly- in crisis....and needs help, why don't we argue over the fact Mike added info to the thread title...

seems like a better use of energy.

But Hill says the man appeared to be under the influence of some substance — and at one point even tried to wear her daughter's car seat as a hat

People unthinkingly read whatever media give them without any inclination to double-check what they read or trying to get broader view about things. That's sad.
