The worst that could have happened to him would have been jail. That would have made him the greatest moral force against the injustice. He chose America, spiritually vacant but the prime destination of people in pursuit of material fulfillment. How is this man different from any one of our politicians who forfeit the struggle at home and open another political party here in the US. In the case of the patriarch he opened another church in diaspora but unfortunately he changed his church to political organisation and he preached hatred in public. I was most appolled by his recent visit to Eritrea which is a sworn enemy of Ethiopianism, this for me is a red line.
You are a memeber of a society who stood by when Abuna Tewoflos got killed inhumanly by Derg. The Egyptians would not have allowed that. You are a memever of the society who stood well when Abuna Merkorios was kicked out by the communist junta. You have no moral authority to accuse anyone let alone Abuna Merkorios.
Woregna neh, Abuna Merkorios did NOT go to Eritrea.
For one thing its God's work that he left Ethiopia but even if you argue he did as a person, Essey, I am glad he did. He would hv been a purposeless mytri to useless and moral less creature like you,
