The persecution of Archbishop Jovan of Ohrid continues. Just yesterday he was sentenced to three years in prison. (In addition to the already how many years he’s been locked up.) The video below is amazing to watch. Unfortunately, it’s not uncommon to see clergymen or other church personnel carried away in handcuffs. There are religious sects hidden in rural areas throughout the States where all sorts of immoral and disgusting things occur. People from the church fall into all sorts of temptations; the Bible is distorted, people follow false Messiahs, self proclaimed gurus and so on.
But to watch Archbishop Jovan, the only Orthodox Archbishop in FYROM – recognized by all Orthodox – and the nuns and other bishops is astonishing. And the destruction of churches!
