As local news website politischios.gr reports, Markos accused politicians of ‘pulling their pants down and are bowing’, while he called on the faithful to vociferously oppose the building of the Muslim mosque in Athens. The Orthodox leader also blasted the same sex marriage political union during his sermon, while he said ‘there are no refugees, they are all illegal migrants’.
