Povodom spora vladike Georgija i CSO Sv. Djordje iz Nijagare

PRESUDA VELIIKOG CRKVENOG SUDA PRESUDA VEL KOG CRKVENOG SUDA
Vladika kanadski g.Georgije (Djokic) je aktom 159, od 5.aprila 2006. godine, zabranio bogosluzenja u hramu Svetog velikomucenika Georgija na Nijagarinim vodopadima, Ontario, Kanada. Ova zabrana je trajalo 4 punih godina, gde je veliki otpadnik Boziji zabranio sva krstenja, opela, vencanja, ispovest i pricesce svim clanovima i parohijanima. (gledajte film SVETA SMELOST da cujete sta nardod kaze I da vidite sami malverzacija ovog nedostojnog episkopa SPC). Angelina Srpska , reziser je snimila, obelodanila, raskrinkala i izblicila arh-gresnika do besvesti da je jasno janku i marku i svakom srbinu i nesrbinu. Advokatska kancelarija koja zastupa Eparhiju poslala je tuzbu civilnom sudu protiv sest clanova uprave CSO "Sveti Djordje": Dusana Kolundzica, Aleksandra Pantelica, Zivorada Jovanovica, Milene Dancuo, Mihaila Savica i Sime Bijelica. Kao neosnovana, tuzba nikada nije pokrenuta i pred drzavnim vlastima sudski proces je na taj nacin zavrsen. Uporedo sa tim, 27. marta 2006. godine, imena gorepomenutih sestoro upravnika pojavila su se na spisku tuzenih crkvenom sudu Eparhije kanadske na kome je po svojoj duznosti predsednik suda sam vladika Georgije. Obizrom na funkciju na kojoj se nalazi bilo je nedopustivo da vladika tuzi upravnike iz Nijagare i da istovremeno predsedava crkvenim sudom. U nemogucnosti da nastavi proces crkvenog suda vladika Georgije (Djokic) je 20. jula 2006. godine slucaj poslao Velikom crkvenom sudu na razmatranje. Odlukom donesenom 20. maja 2007, Veliki crkveni sud je predmet protiv odbornika CSO "Sveti Djordje" poverio sudu Istocnoamericke eparhije kao neutralnom. Nakon godinu dana cekanja optuzeni su pozvani da dodju na saslusanje koje je obavljeno 10. jula u prostorijama Eparhije istocnoamericke.

Vladika Georgije (Djokic) ni ranije nije postovao odluke visih crkvenih vlasti u sporu sa Nijagarom i imajuci to u vidu optuzeni su se obratili direktno Patrijarsiji SPC u Beogradu u zelji da saznaju na kom stepenu se nalazi njihov slucaj. Pocetkom januara 2008. godine dobili su potvrdu da je Veliki crkveni sud zasedao i da je presuda donesena, a da je vladika Georgije (Djokic) odgovoran da im presudu uruci. Nakon mesec dana strpljivog cekanja, upravnici su bili slobodni i obratili se: 1) Gospodinu Iliji Rakanovicu, potpredsedniku Eparhije kanadske; 2) Protojereju stavroforu Lazaru Vukojevu, sekretaru Crkvenog suda Eparhije kanadske i zameniku vladike Georgija; 3) Gospodinu Davoru Milicevicu, sekretaru Eparhije kanadske; Sva trojica su imali identican odgovor koji je glasio da su razgovarali sa vladikom Georgijem i da nikakva presuda nije stigla! Isto je potvrdio i sam vladika Georgije, rekavsi: "Proces se odvija na sledeci nacin: Prvo Veliki crkveni sud ce dostaviti nekome ili je dostavio, mene nije obavestio, da verifikuje ono sto je Crkveni sud nas trazio, odnosno da udovolji vasem zahtevu o izuzetku Crkvenog suda. Kada taj sud obavi posao on ce dostaviti nama na verifikaciju vasih izjava da li su tacne ili nisu". Upravnici su shvatili da od vladike Georgija (Djokica) presudu nikada nece dobiti, pa su se, izmedju ostalih, obratili Velikom crkvenom sudu i Sinodu SPC. Zahvaljujuci Patrijarsiji SPC u Beogradu optuzeni upravnici su presudu dobili 21. februara 2008. godine. U presudi jasno stoji da su optuzeni upravnici oslobodjeni iskljucenja iz crkvene zajednice kojima ih je vladika Georgije kaznio i da omoguci bogosluzenja u crkvi odmah po dobijanju presude. Duznost clanstva u Nijagari je da svoja lokalna pravila uskladi sa Ustavom SPC u Kanadi i Americi. Ni posle dva meseca od odluke suda vladika Georgije nije presudu urucio. Clanovi i parohijani iz Nijagare tu presudu, kao i kaznu koju je ranije izrekao, ne dozivljavaju kao svoju licnu, jer nije kaznjeno samo navedenih sest lica, nego je vladicinim aktom 159. kaznjena citava kolonija koja je time izopstena iz crkvene zajednice. Dostavljamo vam na uvid presudu Velikog crkvenog suda SPC kao najvise zakonodavne vlasti u nasoj Crkvi.
