Greetings in that Divine and Most Precious Name of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
I am just posting this to clarify a few things. Firstly, this is not an "us against them" matter, so lets not just divulge in finger pointing. Secondly, I did not condemn the entire Serbian Orthodox communion as being complicit with genocide, and I apologize if folks made that inference, it was not my intentions. However, I do not have to argue what is fact, that some Serbian Christians were either actively participating in, or were at least complicit or sympathizing with the war-crimes and terror committed by the Serbian para-militaries. These kinds of controversies continue to divide the Ethiopian Orthodox Church as well, over accountability, but just because they are divisive should mean that we can ignore them or sugar coat them, that is not sincere repentance, that is not owning up to anything but kicking the can down the road. Lastly, by genocide I was not trying to suggest that some Serbs were trying to eradicate all of the Bosnians, however, clearly "ethnic-cleansing" a word which was coined by that regime, target victims because of their ethnicity, and that is genocide. When mass-killing targeting because of ethnicity is used as a tactic of war, that is genocide, regardless if the intentions are to kill the entire race, or just a few members there of.
Sorry to be dragging out such a sensitive issue, but even if the truth hurts, we as adults should embrace the truth in all matters, sensitive or not.
I pray for me, them, and us all.
