The Holy Synod of the Orthodox Church of America has released a statement explaining its reasons for asking the leader of the Church, Metropolitan Jonah, to step down.
The 17 July 2012 statement accused Jonah of administrative incompetence, but dismissed suggestions he was forced from office due in response to his alleged sympathies to the left in America’s “culture wars.”
At the close of a meeting of the Holy Synod in Syosset, New York, on 7 July Jonah resigned as metropolitan, writing “as per your unanimous request, as conveyed to me by Chancellor Fr. John Jillions, I hereby tender my resignation as Primate of the Orthodox Church in America, and humbly request another Episcopal assignment.”
