Church comments on protests

The Orthodox Church of Macedonia (MPC) has commented on the protests on its website, where these are identified as mainly against the idea of building a church there. It is also noted that, next to icons, flags with the Byzantine double eagle were waved, adding that these were "a symbol of the unity of spiritual and wordly rule" (simbol na edinstvoto na duhovnata i svetovnata vlast). On this website are also a number of photos from the protest showing the rival banners: "the temple for the good of all" and "lord, forgive them, for they don't know what they are doing" versus "we don't want that temple" and "don't rape Skopje".
