In an unprecedented move, Eritrean bishops in the Orthodox church have expelled their former patriarch, Abune Antonios.

Antonios, who was the head of the church until 2006, was accused of heresy in a statement signed by a group of top bishops.

He has for a long time been a critic of the government and was deposed and put under house arrest 13 years ago.

His followers accuse the government of interfering in church affairs.

    This was orchestrated by the PFDJ leaders. Hence, the Eritrean people must stand firm and united to resolutely resist the junta’s yet another egregious intrusion into the ecclesiastical affairs of the orthodox church. The defense of our faith and church today becomes the duty of every Eritrean citizen.

    I feel His Holiness’ life is in danger.
    May God protect him.

    How sarcastic!

    The godless diabolical government condemning His Holiness Abune Antonios in God’s house matters.

    The godless clique took 13 years to find a questionable excuse to demote a holy father of the Orthodox Church.
    We were complaining about his house arrest. Now it is even worse!
    .
    What will be the next topic is anyone’s guess.

    In the last weeks we complained about the closure of hospitals and clinics run by the Catholic Church

    May God save Eritreans from this endless mess and misery.
