DO BLACK LIVES MATTER? OUR BISHOPS RESPOND

aminext2 (2)

The following archive of Orthodox synodal and individual episcopal statements will be updated as Orthodoxy in Dialogue’s readers bring them to our attention. Send links for inclusion to editors@orthodoxyindialogue.com.

We invite our readers to evaluate each statement carefully to discern which ones adequately address the current crisis gripping the United States, which are found lacking, and which are egregiously bad.

Reach out to us at our email address if you would like to write an article or letter to the editors in response to one or more of these statements.

Given the multiple, overlapping Orthodox jurisdictions in America, we have listed individual hierarchs in alphabetical order irrespective of rank or seniority.
