BOSTON – Joe Biden, presidential candidate and former U.S. Vice President during the Barack Obama administration, phoned His All-Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew and expressed his warm wishes on his 80th birthday, which was on February 29.

Biden has shown interest about the issues facing the Ecumenical Patriarchate regarding its smooth operation and fulfilment of its sacred mission worldwide, religious freedom, and most especially the reopening of the historic Theological School of Halki.

Biden has much admiration and respect for His All-Holiness Patriarch Bartholomew, who according to the ecclesiastical order “has the care of all the Churches.”

Biden also follows very closely the initiatives of Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew regarding the guarding and sustenance of the sacredness of the Creation of God and the Protection of the Natural Environment, the Inter-Christian and Interfaith Dialogues aiming for peace, cooperation, and coexistence between the nations and people around the world.

It is noted here that Biden as Vice President had visited Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew at the Phanar in November of 2014 during an official visit to Turkey. That meeting had lasted for one and a half hours.

  1. Do you wonder what his Eminence had to say to Biden about his son sleeping with his freshly-widowed sister-in-law, then marrying her, then dumping her in order to impregnate a stripper/prostitute?

    (not to take away from your decision to highlight the Patriarch’s influential chums)

  2. Shouldn’t this perennial presidential hopeful be calling instead the Greek political leadership to reaffirm his support? Oh, I forgot that might upset “an old friend.”

  3. Greek Americans need to encourage our politicians to give support for Greece. That is true if we get Joe Biden or we get four more years of Donald Trump.

  4. Joe Biden is walking talking Train Wreck.
    Our tough PRESIDENT TRUMP will wipe the floor with senile mental case Joe who can’t utter a clear thought.

    Biden is probably set up by some loony liberal rich Greeks who still haven’t seen the light.
    GO TRUMP!

  5. Biden has been in politics most of his adult life. What has Greece gained from him? His previous boss did nothing for Greece and only appeased Turkey. Now the EU will cave to turkeys blackmail which will make Erdogan think he is invincible. Biden shows his age mentally and physically and will be a disaster for this country. And he is no match for Erdogan. With Trump at least Greece has a chance because no one including turkey actually knows what Trump will do.

  6. can trump even spell Patriarch ? as for the comment about Joe Biden’s son……how about a many who paid off a woman who he was sleeping with while he was married…..no need to stray to far into the family, there is plenty of questionable conduct on the part of trump not to mention the separation of children from their parents….not very Christian like (another word I question as to whether he knows how to spell let alone emulate)……

    1. You are so right, Faith in Faith. Locking kids up…adultery…misogyny..lies….all are trademarks of this (impeached forever) President. The hypocritical evangelical Republicans will have a lot to say when he is out of office and they no longer fear him.

    1. Nobody can understand WHY Father Alex Karloutsos keeps company with lefty crazy Joe Biden who’s against his Orthodox tenets.
      Is Karloutsos just power hungry or superficially star struck to be in good with ex White House politicians Or is it to help him with his church – what gives??

  7. Biden Bloomberg & Bernie – these clowns
    make Americans realize just how lucky we are to have President Donald J. Trump.
