Secretary Pompeo openly acknowledges U.S pressure on Churches to recognize Ukrainian schismatics

Washington, D.C., January 4, 2021

Last month, the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated that it was aware that U.S. politicians had pressured hierarchs of the Greek and Cypriot Churches to recognize the schismatic “Orthodox Church of Ukraine” (OCU).

OrthoChristian has written of the U.S’s role in creating and propagandizing the OCU many times, and OCU hierarchs have even openly spoken about it at times. Pro-Constantinople and pro-schismatic hierarchs and media outlets have routinely dismissed such statements and reports as “Russian propaganda.”

However, in a Tweet yesterday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo openly acknowledged the U.S.’s interference in the Ukrainian Church crisis:

Secretary Pompeo is shown pictured with Epiphany Dumenko, the head of the Ukrainian schismatics. The Tweet is part of a flurry of anti-Russian tweets from the Secretary yesterday.

Unfortunately, there is little hope that the U.S. will cease meddling in Church affairs under Joe Biden, who touts himself as a great friend and supporter of the Patriarchate of Constantinople as the supposed center of Orthodoxy.

In November, Patriarch Bartholomew expressed his elation at the Biden’s apparent victory in the presidential elections, and in response, Biden wrote that he looks forward to cooperating with the Patriarch. The international community “needs your leadership,” he wrote to the Constantinople primate.

Churches must be kept out of any power politics of nations.especially of war politics.. Because, Lord Jesus Christ is the God of all nations and human beings.He is the Lord peace and God universes and love.

Pompeo is on video bragging before Texas A&M alumni about lying, cheating, and stealing as everyday business at the CIA and bragged about them giving courses and training on how to do it better. All these fakes will stand before Christ and all that is hidden will be brought to light. Every raped, tortured, and murdered child that people like him and his global intelligence associates have used as objects for political blackmail will have their justice from the Judgment Seat of Christ. Come, Lord Jesus!

Even someone as dastardly as Lex Luther would find this man threatening.

It's been clear for a least a couple of years that the U.S. Government has been meddling in the religious affairs of the Ukraine, through its 'ally' Turkey and the EP. Hopefully, that action will change after the change of Government in the U.S. Anything to punish Russia for its unlawful action in Ukraine.
