Nuns perform Iron Guard songs

A video posted on YouTube shows a group of nuns from the Petru Voda monastery in Neamt singing to the father Justin Parvu, on his 92nd birthday, “The holy legionnaire youth”, a song which is traditionally associated with the Iron Guard. The Centre for Mo­nitoring and Combating Anti-Semitism in Romania (MCA Romania) forwarded an official protest to the Romanian Pa­triarchy, calling attention to “the promotion, in Orthodox places of worship, by members of the Romanian Orthodox Church, of the extreme-right ideology” and pointing to the fact that the songs sung by nuns from the Petru Voda convent are in contradiction with Christian values. The father Justin Parvu distinguished himself among the Ortho­dox clergy as one of the fier­cest contesters of biometric pas­sports. There was no immediate reaction from the Romanian Patriarchy.
