  1. He is not the Archbishop of Greece, but a duped pawn in the SYRIZA game of turning greece into a secular society of non Greek non Christian religions but promoting atheist ideology and other religions. Time for a new Archbishop..New PM. And you all think Demetrios is bad..

    1. “The Greek people are anarchic and difficult to tame. For this reason we must strike deep into their cultural roots: Perhaps then we can force them to conform. I mean, of course, to strike at their language, their religion, their cultural and historical reserves, so that we can neutralize their ability to develop, to distinguish themselves, or to prevail; thereby removing them as an obstacle to our strategically vital plans in the Balkans, the Mediterranean, and the Middle East…” Henry Kissinger (once again)

      1. Lexical Syntactical Analysis of the canard that Kissinger spoke of striking at anarchic roots of Greeks proves it was written by Greeks who believe in forcing their ideas on others.

        Kissinger replied to the editor of the Economic Tachydromus in October 1997 “there was no award ceremony, there was no speech, and the alleged quote is entirely untrue. The whole thing is pure invention”

        In fact it derives entirely from the Thursday night before Easter pogrom inciting rampage against “anomus, adioscourus, anarcus”
