In the last month two stories of violence against Orthodox priests caught the Orthodox news channels attention. One happened in Russia and one here‚ on American soil.
The first one you can read it here:
This is a most tragic event. A Russian Orthodox Priest who was outspoken against the Islamic religion was gunned down in his own Church in Moscow. May he rest in peace.
The second one available here:
is a story of confusion‚ of mistaken (?) identity that ended up with a severe beating of an Orthodox Seminarian by an US soldier.
Both this stories are disturbing because they show how misdirected religious convictions and misinformation can lead to violent outcomes. American soil and even Orthodox priests are not exempt to it.
