Jovan Marakas: Father Dzomic is not a threat for the national security of Montenegro

Only naïve people could think that persecution of protopresbyter staurophore Dr. Velibor Dzomic is related to his alleged organizing of demonstrations, which are legal in the civilized world.

It is true that Father Dzomic is a threat, but for the ignorant and counterfeiters since no one is nearly as well informed as him about the relationship between the Church and the State in Montenegro. Therefore, he is a threat for all of them, particularly for the destructive pseudo-religious organization aiming at destruction of Orthodoxy, the pseudo-organization which was verified at the police station and which has never existed in the history of Montenegro.

A Recommendation of the Metropolitanate of Montenegro and the Littoral:
