      The Last Orthodox Church in Kosovo Might Turn into a Night Club

      Pristina. According to the new public planning the unfinished
      orthodox church "Christ, The Savior" in Pristina might be turned into
      a night club, a studio or a museum. The Parliament had reviewed the
      suggestion for the new reconstruction of the region on July 15. The
      plan includes the church and the students' campus, the electronic
      edition Holy Gates of Christianity (www.dveribg.com) reports.

      The Serbian church has not been informed about the initiative and had
      reacted sharply to it. "The Church has neither intention, nor the
      right to turn its sites whose foundations have already been
      dedicated, into night clubs or galleries. Though over 150 churches
      and monasteries have been destroyed or seriously damaged over the
      last 6 years, the new attempt at taking away the last Orthodox Church
      cannot be seen in any other way than as a wish for impeding the life
      of the Church and wiping out every single trace of the Serbian people
      and culture in Kosovo and Metohija", a declaration of the
      Rasko-Prizren Eparchy reads.
