ROC believes Black Lives Matter movement to become anti-Christian
The anti-racist “Black Lives Matter” movement is growing increasingly anti-Christian, according to the Russian Orthodox Church.
The Black Lives Matter movement in the USA, Great Britain and some other countries is increasingly acquiring an intentionally anti-Christian and anti-civilizational character, Bishop Savva (Tutunov) of Zelenograd, Deputy Chancellor of the Moscow Patriarchate, wrote on his Telegram channel.
Commenting on reports that the statue of Emperor Constantine the Great, located next to the York Cathedral in England, “could be subject to deconstruction due to the glorification of slavery", the hierarch writes that the Black Lives Matter movement "is acquiring an intentionally anti-Christian and anti-civilizational character, which is becoming more apparent.”
Constantine the Great, who established Christianity in the Roman Empire, is ranked by the Orthodox Church as a saint and is revered as an equal-to-the-apostles emperor.
As reported by the UOJ, a video was previously published online in which an American black policeman explains to a white participant in anti-racist protests that the US’s problem is not racism but sin.
