JORDANVILLE, N.Y. - The monks at the Holy Trinity Monastery in Jordanville claim they're being harassed.

"They'll drive by yelling obscenities and they'll park in the parking lot in front of the Belltower, they start peeling out honking their horns, throwing stuff at us, it's non-stop until 3 in the morning," said Father Nikon.

They monks call the recent actions terrorism. "They're terrorists, local terrorists," said Father Luke.

Please don't project meta-debates onto me.

Probably doing too much good in the world.

I highly recommend one of my favorite films to them: Adam's Apples
