Re: THE GRACIOUS ACT OF ABDICATION
Dear Prof. Demirdjian,
Your farsighted and healthy advice should be heeded by the corrupted religious leaders both in the persons of Arch. Hovnan Derderian and Catholicos of All Armenians Karekin II.

Dear Editor,
Thank you for publishing Z.S. Andrew Demirdjian’s insightful and educating article. Yes, indeed Catholicos Karekin II’s and Arch. Hovnan Derderian’s time has come to say goodbye.

Re: Karekin II, Arch. Derderian and Arch. Yezras: Are They Spiritual Servants or Ruthless Imposters?
The so-called “Arch.” Hovnan is just one of the 55 bishops in the Mother See. For 90% of these so-called “bishops” or “clergy” shouldn’t even be called human beings. They are devilish creatures. Led by their chief warlord Karekin II, they have sold their souls to the devil.

Re: “MOTION FOR A NEW TRIAL” FILED BY WESTERN DIOCESE ACCUSES JUDGE FOR “SIDING WITH TAGLYAN” DENIED
“Afterall, Western Diocese of Armenian Church is not a theocracy. It is a democracy. It deserves democratic governance.”
Congratulations! By that statement you just declared that the Armenian Apostolic Church is NOT the One True Church of +Jesus Christ+, since the One True Church (the Catholic Church) is a MONARCHY, not a democracy. As we pray, “Thy KINGDOM Come, … ON earth AS IT IS in heaven.

Proposal for a Joint Venture
Arch. Hovnan Derderian should clearly stay away from Ararat Home. If he is allowed to enter in the board, he will create another corrupt institution our seniors don’t need.

Re: The DERDERIAN TRIUMVIRATE
Dear Editor,
Excellent expose. We should get rid of this corrupt clergyman who was kicked out from Toronto, Canada then Montreal and Hovnan landed in L.A. California under very questionable circumstances.
By the way, ALL THESE DIOCESAN CLERGYMEN HAVE ONE OBJECTIVE, which is ”supply money as much as they can to their corrupt Papa, another super corrupt ”half father-half clergyman Karekin II. Please note that all these clergymen, DO NOT DESERVE TO RECEIVE THE TITLE OF ”ARCHBISHOP”. Karekin II offers them the ”ARCH” title to control them. Also all these cronies of Karekin II have very questionable theological preparedness. ETCHMIADZIN should be cleaned up with ”DDT”. Thank you Appo for your highly appreciated journalistic performance.

Re: Appo Jabarian presents a special program on AABC TV on HOW ARCH. HOVNAN DERDERIAN HAS ORCHESTRATED HIS ACTIONS TO DEFRAUD A MAJOR BENEFACTOR OUT OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS. GET AN INSIDE PEEK AT HOW HE DEVISED MACHINATIONS TO REACH HIS OBJECTIVES BUT ULTIMATELY FAILS.

I totally agree wth Appo Jabarian. The most frustrating and biggest problem is the inability of the Diocesan Council. Worst of all, the members of the Diocesan Council are in collusion with our local spiritual leader Hovnan Terteryan, whose efforts have created a corrupt system in recent years. This is highly condemned.

Re: There are ample proofs and evidence on massive corruption connected with Arch. Hovnan Derderian Of Western Diocese

Mr. Jabarian, Thank you for your truthful article. Arch. Hovnan Derderian has contaminated our church and has treated our holy place like his own business. Unfortunately, the level of corruption has reached a point where no solution can be found. The only way to mitigate these unholy behaviour is trough his immediate resignation. Resignation should also include the most corrupt Karekin II and his supporters in Echmiazin. If these group of THUGS remain as our spiritual leader, our church will soon collapse. Be aware of this danger and speak up. Act now and ask for the resignation of KarekinII and his entire mafia clan. Bravo.

Re: Historian Kevorg Yazidjian, a leading member of Armenian Church Reform movement in Armenia Sees NO JUSTIFICATION in Western Diocese’s Diocesan Council Chairman Joseph Kanimian’s failure in taking action against misdeeds by corrupted spiritual servants at Western Diocese

Thank you for our honest Armenians…
We must keep our honesty
We are the model for all the world
Let me give the best example:
If someone hears you are Armenian …
They feel proud and say,
“We have the best Armenian friend”
I heard this wherever visited in the world.
“I’m getting every day more proud to be Armenian”
Let us keep our true ~ ancient Armenian faith…
“The Armenianism” our ethnic pride…

Re: The scandalous liquidation of an integral part of world Armenian heritage Mekhitarist Fathers’ Samuel Mourad school in Paris must be stopped at all cost

Dear Mr. Jabarian,
I have thankfully received your factual report about Arch. Hovnan Derderian. It is disturbing to witness diocesan out of control corrupt and risky adventures which reached the doorsteps of Karekin II who has no talent whatsoever to manage Etchmiadzin’s worldwide enterprises. To understand Arch. Hovnan Derderian corrupt conducts, you have to look first his master’s Karekin’s II objectives. The ultimate objective of Karekin II is to generate income, at all costs, because he has no thorough ecclesiastical background to hold the title of ”Carholicos”. If you understand the overall concept of karekin II’s management of Etchmiadzin then you will understand the modus operadi of all Karekin II’s diocesan appointees, including Hovnan Der-derian’s. By the way as you are well aware, Hovnan Derderian’s name is on the list of homosexuals #2. (the list includes around two dozens high ranking Karekin II appointees worldwide and in Armenia). I will continue this issue in the near future. Thank you Appo for your kind consideration. The readers deserve to be informed about exactly what going on behind closed board-room doors of our institutions.

Thank you Appo. My father and 2 uncles attended Mekhitarist Fathers’ Samuel Mourad school in Paris in 1930’s. It is very sad to see this institution coming to this. It has to be stopped now. Is this one of AGBU’s scandal of selling our Armenian Institutions?

Appo Jabarian’s response: To my knowledge it’s still is under the jurisdiction of Mekhitarist Fathers’ Order.

USA Armenian Life Managing Editor Appo Jabarian: A Skilful and Genuine Investigative Journalist
Dear Mr. Jabarian,
I am always following your articles, and I am spiritually elated that you are such a talented and a genuine journalist, because a truth-teller can never be a bad person or mediocre Armenian.
May you remain strong and safe in this unrighteous reality! It’s inspiring that you are able to search for and present the truth to the public, and are refusing to mislead your readers with false stories glossing over corruption in Hovnan Derderian’s Western Diocese.
I am taken aback when I read rude commentaries and remarks hurled at you by Derderian and his lackeys. At first glance is understandable that they are trying to make you drown in order to misrepresent you to the public as a bad person, bad journalist, or a bad Armenian, or a sectarian, etc. But I admire your courage and refusal to not surrender.
The truth is God, and you are for the truth. Your, any fight for the truth will prevail.
With respects,

Even if they silence u, the stones will speak. The Church needs reform.
In Armenia, during the summer, how they barred us from meeting with church-loving youth from all over the world and from telling them about what’s going on in our Holy Church. And now they’re trying to silence Armenians around the world and the press? Even if they silence u, the stones will speak. The Church needs reform.

Amazed that there
are so many low-lives among the priests
I am amazed that there are so many low-lives among the priests. They tend to be businessmen rather than priests; and are far from being religious. Not only they don’t’ recognize God but also they don’t love Him which is scandalous for nonbelievers and skeptics. The dollar has hijacked their minds and they do not fear God’s punishment. What will they answer be on Judgment Day?

File a civil lawsuit against Derderian and the Western Diocese asking for millions of dollars in actual damages
Appo Jabarian, Why aren’yt you initiating a lawsuit? To hell with criminal cases. File a civil lawsuit against Derderian and the Western Diocese. Ask for 1 million dollars in actual damages and 20 million dollars in punitive damages. Hit ’em where it hurts – in the pocketbook.

Dear Editor,
This is happening everywhere. Iranian priests who are working with the regime of Iran, they have two or three houses and cars here in Armenia, back in Iran, claiming God provided everything for them. There should be a huge movement to reveal this corruption everywhere.

Re: What happened since 2003!
A CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER OF EVENTS Relating to Western Diocese-Taglyan Complex from 2003 to 2019

Appo, just put up the court decision in favor of Taghlyan, and ruling to pay all the legal fees incurred by the Taghlyan. Case closed by the Superior Court of LA. The Diocesan Councils have become cronies of the corrupted bishops. Even someone like Kanimian, should be ashamed of himself for witnessing such inappropriate acts and giving his tacit approval.If he is not part of the solution ,he is part of the problem .Embarrassing.Resignation is the only honorable step to take,if there is such a thing,as honor among thieves and corrupt ones.Our church memberships are dwindling,because people can’t take anymore.AMOT.

Appo Jabarian’s response: Peter Bedros Sarkissian, that’s so true!!! We’ve got to claim back our faith-based and community-based organi-zations and institutions!

In light of your accusations, Archbishop Hovnan Derderian has three choices.
The three choices are: Sue you; Admit what you say is based on fact; Explain why he is reluctant to defend himself.

“New Armenia, New Catholicos” Initiative’s our American-Armenian allies are actively working demanding the resignation of Hovnan Derderian, primate of the Western Diocese of the United States
Remember, it was Derderian who handed the note (joyfully announcing the passing of then Armenia’s Prime Minister Vasgen Sargsyan) to the illegitimate, rogue Catholicos Karekin Nersisyan who had just a few minutes before the assasination, had hijacked the pontifical throne. Derderian is kissing the note (in a gesture of dry joy). All of them are part of a criminal clan that has long been associated with the Masons … These are murderers, their hands are soaked in the blood of the October 27, 1999 assassination victims, just like Robert Kocharyan …

Armenian church Reform Comment:

Wonder why people don’t attend Church?
Well it is the trickledown effect! Increasing numbers of the Armenian American community have pulled back from making donations to their local church because of the clandestine activities of the Western Diocese under the leadership of Hovnan Derderian.
Although they may attend church they do not debate their disgust towards Hovnan Derderian’s covert activities instead they show it with their pocket.
They come to church to light a candle and listen to the ancient beautiful liturgy. Sometimes they stay for some fellowship. Droves of others who are onto his misdeeds have quietly turned away in frustration from the Armenian Apostolic Church of the Western Diocese and no longer want to be associated with the likes of Derderian’s Diocese.
