As mentioned earlier, I finally got access to a website that the Cranky Yankees had installed to privately slander me. So now, I’m creating a post using the handy mouse-over feature so that our readers can compare Minas’ lies to the truth, in a whole new and fun way! It’s like “pop up slander refutation”!
How does it work, you ask? I’ll tell you. Put your mouse pointer over this word and watch what happens:

Re: Minas Christie, Stalker Extraordinaire
No, that’s not me, it’s Joe Suaiden. I have used as the title for this post the exact same title used by Mr. Suaiden’s in his most recent slanderous ROCOR REFUGEE’S-OR JUST CRANKY YANKEE’S posting about me, I thought it only fitting. I will address the allegations made there in sections taken from the post. If your interested in reading it in it’s glorious entirety you may find it here https://rocorrefugees.wordpress.com/2014/08/11/minas-christie-stalker-extraordinaire/
“My first encounter with Minas was unexpected. Apparently, as a catechumen, I met this guy in Miami“
Yes, I met this 17-18 yr. old man-child in the St. Vladimir ROCOR church parish hall, I believe it must have been about 1997-98. It was early evening and I’m not sure why I entered the hall but I unexpectedly encounter him. He was laying on the floor and quickly jumped up to introduce himself. He said he was a friend of the priests oldest son, a friendship he had later denied, and that he was given permission to stay there a few days. He said he didn’t get along at home with his Hispanic Roman Catholic mother and his Arabic Muslim father and was asked to move out. I still wonder why they would have done that to this charming cocky know it all teenager.
“he felt years later that he could anonymously introduce himself to my wife as “a dog, a big dog”
This is true, sort of, I’ll explain. I had just gotten on Facebook and I did I guess, now that he reminds me, introduce myself as a big dog. I used that name on the FB profile however I didn’t know at first that I was addressing his wife. While speaking to a mutual acquaintance one day I asked him if this guy, JS, was one in the same as the JS I had once met in Miami a few years earlier (I had encountered JS online before, he had a comic book appreciation blog or some other such nonsense). He made a little laugh and said, “yea, that’s him, that’s Sauiden”. So now, new to FB I see two profiles side by side, with the same profile photo “Orthodoxy Or Death” logo. One was for Xenia Suaiden, the other one for JS.
Mistakenly, I PM’d XS instead of JS, and I, thinking it was JS, jokingly introduce myself as a big dog.
“and began sending messages to my wife saying “I know your husband”, and trying to talk to her.”
I didn’t begin sending her messages. . I did say I know your husband after she started cursing me and I was trying to explain the mix up but she would have none of it. About that time JS got on and also started cursing me.
“I basically didn’t really know too many people. Regardless, I found the strange requests offensive”
I kept trying to explain who I was and where I knew him and trying to apologize for my mix up but they would have none of it so I again apologized as they were ranking at me and I signed off.
“How do I know this was Minas? Well, that’s the really amazing part. He told me.”
True, I did tell him. I was doing work for him on his NFTU website. You see, before I became aware of his narcissistic self serving nature, his jurisdictional ecumenism agenda and his vagante and un-canonical status as a Milan Synod deacon. (He was ordained a deacon against church canons having been previously married and divorced with a child after being baptized Orthodox, as was his second wife Xenia also divorced with three children. Perhaps I’ll get into that more on another future post). Getting back to why I told him it was me years later. I had been sending him news tips for quite some time and it was his wife who contacted asking me to please be a part of their staff. For some reason I hadn’t realize just what she was asking at the time and I accepted her offer for help. When I realized that they wanted me to actually have access to posting directly using the NFTU dashboard and being on staff I was a bit surprised yet since I had already accepted I thought I may as well go along with it and help them. Which I did, believe me I did, too much. I was doing most of the legwork on their NFTU for a long time, for free, while they used their new found free time to make other blogs and who knows what. I admit I wanted to clear up the air with what was said years earlier on Facebook and really deep down I was kind of hoping they would still be angry about it so I would have a good excuse to stop working for them. Suaiden had gotten comfortable with me and began treating me as some kind of paid employee, talking down to me as if he were my employer who I should fear because he provided my income. However when I did tell him it was me in the FB message he just laughed about it and said not to worry, he understood, accepting my explanation. Of course he did, he wouldn’t want to lose his workhorse over a misunderstanding. So, I continued to serve this jerk for a while longer.
“Minas was apparently embroiled in a fight in the Kimisis parish of the GOC-Kallinikos in Florida where he had been slandering the parish board– he referred to it in conversation with me as “the Kimisis (sic) mafia”– on (surprise!) anonymous Facebook accounts”
This part is really laughable. Yes I did refer to the parish board as the Kimissis mafia ( I’m not the only one there that had used that term) in a conversations with him. But, the part that I said this to him on a anonymous FB accounts is a total lie, hogwash to put it gently. where does he come up with this stuff ? Oh yea, it’s JS. BTW, how do you tell if he’s lying ? Easy, he’s moving his lips or his fingers across his keyboard of course.
“About a month after the dog incident, Minas became a frequent and commenter on NFTU, and wanted to reach out to me personally.”
Total lie ! As I said, it was years later that I related to him it was me. Also, as I said, I had been sending him news items for articles (and comments from time to time). His wife is the one who reached out to me to help them. BTW, something funny, after I broke with them JS made a posting on the asking for volunteers which read “Hungry Dogs Wanted to help on the NFTU news team” Another funny thing,he had related to me that he felt his NFTU was in some sort of competition with them for readers and if I had any idea’s how we could best them. Later, he managed to somehow talk the Ecafe owner to allow him to provide links to his articles on their sidebar. Ecafe already had Portal Credo on their sidebar. After NFTU got on they were both on it for a while, then Portal Credo disappeared from it altogether, another coup for JS. Now, it can be said since JS got his hooks in it and the lack of interest shown to it by the owner, other than to list it on his resume, that and the current moderators who have made it very tribal with it’s private forums, that the site has really gone downhill as far as it’s importance as a True Orthodox message board is concerned. You could say JS is now a not so silent partner.
Now wasn’t that fun, guys? I know it was for me. Getting the truth out in new and creative ways is just always interesting to me. Till next chapter, ta ta!
P.S. Oh, the Refugees were wondering who the “true Russian” was?
