The incident occurred in the village of Lake in Volyn region
In Volyn Baptist pastor commented on the situation surrounding the refusal of the UOC-MP priest to bury a child, “baptized” the UOC-KP.
The Baptists are ready to bury all regardless of denomination, because for a dead man it doesn’t matter. This was stated on his page on Facebook, the pastor of the Church of Evangelical Christians-Baptists Sergey Sharaevsky, commenting on the incident in the village of Lake Kivertsi district of Volyn region.
Sharaevsky decided to clarify that the Baptists are no burial service, because I think that a dead man has nothing helps.
“Bury all the Baptists – said Rostislav. – The, foreign, Orthodox, Catholic, other Protestants, Jews, Muslims, Hindus. Even suicide, which, unfortunately, others refuse to bury. Because the dead don’t care who his body will hold in the last journey”.
According to Rostislav, a funeral needed to be Christian to support the family, so Baptists do not look at the religious affiliation of those who use them.
2 Sep the prior of the Pokrovsk temple of the UOC father Mikhail Goroskopu asked the parents of a dead 9-year-old girl with a request to conduct the funeral rite. The priest did not make the funeral, because it turned out that the child is “baptized” in the Kyiv Patriarchate.
In the Volyn diocese of the UOC explained that “it is normal when a person is funeral, where he was baptized<…> for Example, Baptists do not go to the Roman Catholics to bury their people.” Later, the Governor of the Volyn region declared that will not leave without attention the situation with the refusal of the UOC-MP priest to do the funeral of a child, “baptized” in the Kyiv Patriarchate.
