Metropolitan Amfilohije of Montenegro and the Littoral has once again expressed his opinion on the closer relations between NATO and Montenegro.
In his speech delivered during the consecration of the church of Hieromartyr Athenogenes and the celebrations dedicated to the 140th anniversary of Battle of Vucji Do, the hierarch shared his position on the current policy of Montenegro and its plans to join NATO.
“The Church of God opposes this NATO. The Serbian Orthodox Church first of all condemns this satanic violence against human beings. The Church is against everything that enslaves and undermines human dignity, both physical and spiritual,” the metropolitan emphasized.
“What is NATO? It is nothing but the continuation of the national fascist ideology which has flooded Europe and the whole world with blood,” Metropolitan Amfilohije said, adding that the Lord came into the world in order to free us from the tyranny which idolizes race, class or state.
“If Montenegro renounces Kosovo and Metohija and spits upon the blood of martyrs who liberated Montenegro, Kosovo and Metohija, then it is not my Montenegro and not that of my ancestors and my descendants,” declared the metropolitan.
