This synod of bishops was a continuation of the Florinite bishops who were ordained by the Russian Church Abroad in 1961. They remained in communion with the Russian Church Abroad until the Russians united with the Cyprianite heretics in 1994. They remained faithful to the church and the Faith until they united with the homosexual group known as HOCNA in 2013. HOCNA is a personality-cult centered around the abbot Fr. Panteleimon, formed for his protection. In 1985, during the course of a synodal investigation into the accusations of homosexual crimes made by several of his monks, Fr.Panteleimon fled, thereby confirming his guilt. He and those with him were justly deposed from the priesthood by the Russian Church.
So this hapless group of Makarite bishops went into communion with clergy that the Russian bishops who had ordained them in 1961 had deposed. In uniting with the schismatics of HOCNA, who also teach the name worshiping heresy and the heresy of repentance after death, Makarios and his synod of bishops have become the same as HOCNA — not only schismatics, but also heretics.
