Serbian Orthodox angry with Catholic prelate’s defense of Cardinal Stepinac

[So much for ecumenism and guilelessness (lack of a double standard/inconsistency) on the Serbian schismatics’ side!]

Catholic World News – November 07, 2016

Serbian Orthodox leaders have reacted angrily to a statement by a Catholic archbishop, who voiced his dismay at delays in the cause for canonization of Blessed Alojie Stepinac.

Archbishop Stanislav Hocevar of Belgrade said in a published interview that Catholics are unhappy with the delays, and observed that Cardinal Stepinac’s background has been investigated much more thoroughly than that of an Orthodox prelate who has been canonized by the Serbian Church. He referred to the Serbian Bishop Nikolaj Velimirovic, who had supported Hitler before changing his allegiance to Serbian nationalists. That reference outraged Serbian Orthodox officials, and the Synod of the Serbian Orthodox Church decried the “inappropriate statement” and the tacit comparison between Bishop Velimirovic and Cardinal Stepinac.
