Lima Area Priest Suspended For Attending Trump's Rally Before U.S. Capitol Insurrection

An Orthodox priest from the Lima area has been suspended for three months for attending Donald Trump’s rally near the White House before his supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol.
Father Mark Hodges says he was told by a church leader that he was “guilty by association.” Hodges says he marched toward the Capitol but left when he saw a group violently going after the police. He calls the suspension unjust.
