ATHENS – Ambassador at Large for International Religious Freedom Sam Brownback sent a message that the United States will support the reopening of the Halki Theological School.

In reply to a question by the Athens-Macedonian News Agency (ANA), he said that the US has always supported the reopening of the School.
He explained that he cannot clearly say what progress has been made in this direction but stressed that the US continues to support the reopening of the School.


  1. Yes, and the US also supports motherhood and apple pie.

    Now, as for actually getting the school reopened, well, that is a different thing altogether.

  2. Uncle Sam always wears in public
    His red, white and blue suspenders
    Not to prevent his pants from falling
    But, to hold at bay all the intenders.
