Kaleska-Vanceva: MOC’s Threats Against MPs Unacceptable

SDSM MP Snezana Kalevska-Vanceva reacted against the statements of Bishop David from the Macedonian Orthodox Church (MOC), in which he claimed that MOC will refuse to provide religious services to the MPs that would support the changes to the Law on Gender Equality and the adoption of the Draft-law on Legal Recognition of Gender. “What is the meaning of the recent statements by certain priests, and the threats they will boycott us? Have we returned to the dark ages of the inquisition? Am I to be burned at stake for my beliefs? Bishop David should ask himself is the creation of lists of people with different opinions in the spirit of Christianity,” said MP Kalevska-Vanceva, who is one of the MPs that proposed the law-changes that MOC disputes.
