And I Hope He Wins Every Single Drachma Or Shekel Or Zloty...
Or whatever the hell they're called in Greece

Seeing that the government won't do a damn thing - emphasis mine; Greek Bishop Sues Homosexualist Group for Defamation

By Hilary White

ATHENS, January 7, 2008 ( – A Greek Orthodox bishop has launched a defamation lawsuit against a group of homosexualist activists, reports the homosexual news source Pink News. The bishop is reportedly asking for 1 million Euros in defamation after the group issued a press statement denouncing him.

The suit is launched against the Greek homosexualist organization, Synthesis, and activist Leo Kalovyrnas, who denounced the bishop after the latter made comments on the sinfulness of the homosexual lifestyle in a Greek newspaper.

His Eminence Seraphim, Metropolitan of Peiraeus, a diocese of the Orthodox Church of Greece, said in a newspaper article that the homosexualist movement is “morally corrupt, obsessed with satisfying their psychopathological deviation and who have made a life value out of the faeces elimination tract.”

Synthesis responded, saying, “Hate speech against gays, lesbians and transgender people in Greece takes place with impunity.”

Synthesis has used the publicity generated by the suit to press the Greek government to criminalise public criticism of homosexuality. The group is running an online petition asking the government to follow the pattern of other European Union countries and add “sexual orientation” to the hate speech statutes.
What I'd give just to see a handful of bishops try that. But then again, they'd probably lose half the priests in their respective diocese.

Way to you, your Excellency! That sounds so classy even though we all know you meant "fudge packers!"

Leave it to the Orthodox to not put up with this.

Wish we Latins would be a lot more orthodox.

The persecutions have begun again.

I wish you all we alot more Orthodox too! (We have a Western Rite vicarite you know) Our bishops and priests don't put up with that crap, if they did we'd replace them. Rome's enemies are our enemies.

Greece is 1 of the countries that switched over to the Euro so it would be Euros. What ever, I agree with the hope he wins a fortune.

PS Only 1/2 the priests?
