Lately, in the area of the Metropolis of Gjirokastra (Gjirokastra, Sarande, Vore and Himara), and in the past in other areas, the Unification Church of Sun Myung Mun (1920-2012), has started to proselytize people.
Metropolitan Dimitrios of Gjirokastra, aware of the danger of this heresy, informs priests and the congregation and urges them not to have any contact with the “Unification Church”.
Using as baits the propaganda for peace, sociality and humanism, and in many indirect ways (support of those in need etc.), the members of this movement, using the misleading title “Ambassadors of Peace”, allure not only citizens but also scientists, even Orthodox clerics.
Metropolitan Dimitrios characteristically says that the so called “peace” they speak of, has no relation to the peace that Christ brought in the world.
The alleged “peace” of this heresy is an empty message for their own purposes.
It is no accident that the controversial “Unification Church” has been engaged in different business activities, from constructions to Mass Media and from the food sector to automobile industry.
Under the Metropolitan’s orders, in parishes of the above mentioned area, many women and men gather, they have been informed about the particular issue so as to fight ignorance.
