Ieronymos says gov’t trying to undermine Orthodox faith
Archbishop Ieronymos has launched a fresh attack on the left-led government, accusing it of trying to undermine the role of Orthodox faith in the predominantly Christian nation.
“You may have sold out Greece’s treasures, our trains, our ports; however we will not hand over to you our homeland and our Orthodox faith,” Archbishop said in Livadia, north of Attica, Tuesday.
“These are hard times and all people are suffering. We need to be clear about what we want, what kind of family we want, how we want to raise our children, how we want to live tomorrow, what sort of vision we have,” he said.
The government wants to change the content of religious studies at public schools so that they enable pupils to learn about other faiths – a reform that has triggered reactions from the Church and the conservative opposition.
