The Ukranian Autocephalous Orthodox Church Sobornopravna came up inte the thread concerning "Episcopi Vagantes".

According to their website, the UAOC-Sopornopravna has broken all ties with Metropolitan Moisei of Kyiv because of his "heretical teachings".

Does anyone know what the story is behind this?

Correct me please if I am wrong, but this Sobornopravna Church holds a very liberal idea of what the Church must be. They pronnounced themselves in favour of a married episcopacy, liturgy in vernacular language (not that i reject it, but an innovation at that time), and some Protestantizing ideas regarding the way the Church must be governed, with an excesive participation of the laity taking over functions of the Synods and priests. They also hold liberal views about personal morality.

Therefore, I do not know what would be the heretical teaching of Metropolitan Moisei.

Also from their website; this goes back about 3 months and makes me wonder if the 2 Metropolitans were butting heads.

Quote
The Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church of North & South America - Sobornopravna - as well as its eparchy in Ukraine, recognizes Metropolitan Mefodiy Kydriakov as the first hierarch and spiritual leader of the UAOC Patriarchate in Ukraine and the successor to the late Patriarch Dymytrij. Our church does not support the movements of any other eparchies which may have decided to separate from the jurisdiction of Metropolitan Mefodiy or which choose to recognize a different hierarch as the ultimate head of that church.

While there are today, many Ukrainian Orthodox jurisdictions which, due to circumstances of time and place, originate from the canonical Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church that was granted autocephaly in 1942 by the Patriarch of Constantinople, those which at present, merely form eparchies of the Church of Constantinople cannot, by virtue of this relationship, freely lead the Autocephalous Church in Ukraine, which is by nature, a self-governing and fully indigenous ecclesial community. It is therefore, only natural that the UAOC in Ukraine be led by one who is a part of that entity.

Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church
of North & South America - Sobornopravna
Back about a year ago, when he first returned to Ukraine, Metropolitan Moisei spoke critically of the UAOC and Metropolitan Mefody. It seems likely that the Sobornopravna's recognition of the UAOC prelate might not have sat well with Moisei, whose stated mission was going to be the unification of all the UO Churches in Ukraine under the Sobornopravna's aegis.

Many years,

Neil

Perhaps that lovely expression: "All that I am authorized to state is that we are unofficially aware that it claimes to exist" might be appropriate.
