  1. Politics into the mix of Religion. I can’t take the embarassement
    This is the product of Diaspora politics and I believe we didn’t see the the worst.
    It had been long time since ‘orthodox followers’ were talking about politics in church and about church in political forum.
    Both EPRDF and Ginbote 7 parties are responsible, the church is facing the danger of standing as an institution and I would advice both EPRDF and the toxic opposition supporters withdrew from the church adminstration
    Politics is bad unless handled delicately, we will see no different situation in the Diaspora Mulims. The Ethiopian communities abroad should say no and big no to EPRDF and toxic opposition parties to bridge religion for political interset.
    SO DIASPORAS ARE THE CAUSE AND THE SOLUTION OF THE PROBLEM AND IT IS UP TO THEM TO STAY AS A CAUSE OF DIVISION OR TO BE PART OF THE SOLUTION

  2. I’m really really disappointed inside holy place we don’t listen to each other this is the disgusting example we pass to our children.

  3. @teshome. I am not sure from which planet your are but religion has elements of politics since Moses, the leader of the Jews. I am not sure if your comment is to make a point or to score by blending the EPRDF saga with the opposition groups. Your tone is more for the latter. EPRDF brought the dirty politics of subjugation of a religious order under its dictatorial wing. The “toxic oppoistion” cannot standby and watch when they are looting and destroying our religious institutions. they are just saying enough is enough as you saw it in the video. So opposition means all Ethiopians who run away from the EPRDF and the woyanne has no business in the Diaspora. I will assure you that Diaspora is a power to reckon with and Woyanne will be stopped. Just watch from your comfort zone!!

    • @TULU , THERE ARE A NUMBER OF GINBOT 7 AND ARBEGNOCH GINBAR IN THE VIDEO , YOU CAN’T SITE ANY EXAMPLE FROM EPRDF , THE PROBLEM IS WITH MONEY AND TAKE CONTROL OF THE VENUE FOR OPPOSITION SUPPORT , THAT IS ALL . IF YOU ARE NOT LIVING IN LONDON .PLEASE THINK TWICE BEFORE POSTING A BIASED AND SUBJECTIVE COMMENTS .

  4. Not sure why and what are the cause the chaos, but it is very sad to see the TPLF mindless BUCHELA infilitrated the Diaspora church.

    • @ FEKADU ? SITE ME ANY PERSON WHO IS TPLF , BUT I CAN SITE YOU 100’S WHO ARE A MEMBER OF GINBOT 7 AND ARENEGNOCH AND DERG MEMBERS WHO ARE RUNNING THE CHURCH SEBEKA GUBAE , THE SEBEKA GUBAE IS ALL CONTROLED BY THIS GROUPS , ZELALEM , SELESHI, DAWIT , GELAGLE ALL LEADERS ARE FROM GINBOT 7 , TELL ME OR SHOW ME ANY FROM TPLF.?

  5. what a shame for this woyane bandas messing the church. What they don’t understand is that the church belongs to the Ethiopian community and can only be run those who have been elected by the church members only. If they don’t leave peacfully they should all be kicked out and replaced by what the community have confidence.

  6. teshome,there is no place in face of earth politics and religion are separete,these two things they mingle each other,fornicate,lick,sometimes fight each other.in our saying ”hand and gloves”.even in so called secular state,the only different is the degree of it.and plz stop using cadre word such as ”toxic”.if you are supporter of woyanne that fine,i might be oppose woyanne value which is destraction of ethiopia.

  7. tulu and saketaw
    It is a modern question to ask the infulence of Religion on politics and vice versa.
    Both happen, right? but usually in a very sublte way. I might recongnize the overlapping values that both religion and secular people share when it comes to the direction of our country but the fact is politics takes democratic rights values, it is universal rather than religion specific values. More over religion involves compromise but religion does not allow for compromise.
    In short deliberate and palpable interfernce of one over the other brings more harm than good.
    In the last many years unschooled daisporas were trying to mix and mingle religion into politics and one of the reward was chaos wittnesed in ‘Denrtsion maria in London’. In the months and years to come we will see many similar events across the Daispora communities. The big problem is the failed daispora politics has no chance but hide it self in the most important institutiions like church, sport and Mosque.
    So we demand ‘believers’ to leave their religion at the door before entering the public square and politics and at same time politicians should be demanded to do like wise when they came to church.
    Failure to handle the church and Mosques in a reasonable term will have an intended consquences and the Toxic DIiasporas have a moral obligation to deliver their responsibility as such

  8. @ teshome
    plz be open mind u have no fact about the case why those people fight each other. with out full information how on earth can some one judge? it is better to comment on the person who was making fun and insulting or about manner.

  9. Teshome:
    My dear; I thought you are a professional writter, political expert and well educated. But here you missed a lot of points and understanding. with my little knowledge I do not know where I placed you. You do not have clue about this situation. period. If you are God fearing and respected person just pray but there is some evil ignorant spirit drive you crazy. Becarful my friend.You proud and praised the person who threat our churches and racialy sickned person the So called Sebhat nega. Honestly what is your understanding in this church. Speaking is easy there is no hill or there is no slope. Do not proud your self about pointless bar talk. Just pray about this situation. may God forgive you and give you the spirit of truth brother.

  10. Woyanne in the first place is a collection of ahzabs (Pagan) even their appointed pope aba G/medhin was messing with the church who has been carrying gun rather than cross and the former woyanne PM who has never been in the church except once kissed the cross for camera from G/medhin and is not other by all gangs collection.the only thing what they were busy with was destroying monastries churches, torturing the monks till both pays the price with in a month time interval and some more to follow and the gang as whole will be history in the near future ,.

  11. ዘሐበሻ: ይህ የለጠፋችሁት የሎንዶን ደብረጽዮን ኦርቶዶክስ ቤተ ክርስቲያን ነገር ቀና ነገር ያስተምራል ብዬ አላስብም። ለቤተ ክርስቲያኗ የምናስብ ከሆነ ገመና ይደበቃል እንጂ ግልጽ አይወጣም። እኛን ከማሳዘኑ አልፎ ከእምነታችን ውጭ ያሉትን የሚያስቅ ይሆናል። ይህ መቸም እርግማን ካልሆነ በስተቀር ምን ሊሆን ይችላል? ወጣቶችንም ስለሚያስደነግጥ ቀና ነገርም ስለማያመጣ ይህንን ነገር ከድህረ ገጻችሁ ላይ እንድታነሱት በእግዚአብሔር ስም እለምናችኋለሁ።

  12. It is very worrisome to watch the video. I see devil roaming around between them. They don’t see it. It is heart breaking. We are gradually arriving to a time we can’t find one single respected elder (AZAWINT) whose voice and advice is heeded. Where are the church elders?? Where are they??

  13. A big sign of the beginning of the end by any measure. The last hours of a fatally wounded beast are the most painful ones. Woyane has already passed the trespass of sanity and is already in the zone of irreversible insanity. As much as it is embarrassing to see this mayhem in a holly place, this anecdotal case is a clear sign of woyane’s inevitable demise. Of course, it is not unexpected. The sign was written on the wall when both heads of the double-headed serpent was crushed last August. The inevitable death of the beast is very close. Stand by your ground all Ethiopians regardless of religion and ethnic background.

  14. I think we have to be careful what we are saying
    First of all the church Sappose to be lead by only
    Priest .this is not my word its bible word the rest of
    Us are followers of the church this is god’s rule beter to
    Respect this the other thing what we need to know
    Do not judge ,don’t take assumption .and do not take side it’s beter
    Take side with god

  15. I wonder how we can solve our problem if we can’t solve the church matters which at this level goes out of control. Lies lies and lies to gain cheap political score. by the way the main actors leading the quois are so called ‘diaspora political activists’. how can one say this church is controlled by ‘woyane’. the so called oppositions are doing the job for woyane. Divisive politics in ugliest form is like that. but it doesn’t further the cause for the struggle of freedom of our people. because it even kills londons oppositions spirit. we will see who is going to cooperate this bunch of control freak losers who always try to control from front seat who are merchants of politics. the ultimate goal is money money money.

  16. Citizens, it is really sad I have been right there and followed events in the past about this church. As one of the contributors mentioned above the failed diaspora politicians directly and TPLF indirectly have contributed for this mess. It is really sad the main speaker distributing the paper is a big political figure with his army of . Big headed polticians and patriots around the world are demonstrating against Rudolf Grazianis recognition by the new Italian leaders. But our London politicians are messing up in religious matters, which they are completely ignorant about it. shame on them. The church was doing well as u can see from the clips the majority of the people are against them sadly they have only talking mouth not listening ears.

  17. This is very very shameful for all the party involved.I used tone the regular attendant the church, but for the past five or so years what, I start seeing in and outside of the church make me to change my mind about attending the titular Sunday mass.we are like to live,work,study and make a family in this so democratic and free country but the majority of us are still never learn,how to condacte addressing differences in a more mature and civilized manner. What is witnesed inside is just that. It is a well known fact for a majority of us the church been used by opposition political parties as a means of channel for propagating their political ideologyand organazing fund rising, demonstration. The blame in my personal opinion lies entirely on the elected church administrator. And it is the every Ethiopian orthodox Christian democratic rigth to ask the administrator to do the job they are elected for if they don’t they should step down and give others to try
    other thing what I observed is the their are people who are knowingly or with luck of understanding defending what ever the church is doing, wheather, it is wrigth or wrong so open up your mind and let us have a mature discussion and resolve the problem between us and keep our religious worships area as place we can go with our children and prise our lord and ask forgiveness for our sins. May the lord open all of us eye and mind to see and understand the matter in hand .

  18. Harsh pesticides and fertilizers just weren’t in heavy use and farmers used good farm management and crop rotation to keep yields high. So, just as before I we appreciate you putting me in a spot where I think twice before I spend and really see the value of an dollar.

  19. Acquire a sturdy antique pot rack for holding copper and iron pots, pans
    together with other antique items having a primitive search.
    True cooks possess the desire to personal the ideal in cookware, and Calphalon
    Cookware is one of the name brand names in cookware that meets the bill.
