A Sad Commentary

Not sure how many of you have been following the news in Montenegro. Ever since Parliament passed a law last December, tens of thousands of Serbian Orthodox clergy and faithful, along with other supporters, have hit to the streets twice a week in prayerful litiya-processions, demanding its withdrawal. These processions have been not only in Montenegro but elsewhere (Serbia, Republika Srpska, etc.).  The law calls for a creation of a register of all religious buildings and sites the Government claims were owned by the independent kingdom of Montenegro before it became part of the Serb-dominated Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes in 1918, later renamed Yugoslavia. If they cannot prove ownership of the sites, they risk being confiscated to the state.

The silly cartoon commentary above suggests how backwards things have become. Or am I ready it wrong?
