Kyriakos Pierrakakis for metropolitan Corfu: The church hugging everyone

“This type of logic is condemned,” said the Minister of Education, Religious Affairs and Sports, for the decision of the Metropolitan of Corfu to put out of the Church the members of the county, Ch. Avlonitis (SYRIZA) and D. Biagis (PASOK), because they voted in favour of their marriage. “The indictee has passed the bill (p.p. for same-sex couples) and is a responsible minister of Religious Affairs,” said Kyriakos Pierrakakis, noting that such a type of logic is condemned. Mr. Pierrakakis asked to be placed in the decision of the Metropolitan of Corfu to put out of the Church the members of the county, Ch. Avlonitis (SYRIZA) and D. Biagis (PASOK), because they voted in favour of marriage between homosexuals, the parliamentary representatives of Syriza, Ch. Giannoulis, and PASOK, Ev. Mantzos. The Minister of Education, Religious Affairs and Sports even pointed out that the roles of Church and State are distinct, but are to be characterized by the word synergy. This means “that everyone should have a very distinct concept of who each of us is. And in this context, the Greek government, I would say in osmosis with too many people in this Chamber, has brought a very specific legislative initiative. From there on, I hold the capacity and spirit of the church, Even where there are deviations from her doctrinal and moral standards, to welcome and embrace everyone. And that is exactly what I personally believe will prevail,” said Mr Pierrakakis. Mr. Giannoulis criticised the majority for opening up a “gorge door” itself, giving the margin to your colleagues to close their eyes to the prelates, to weep with sobbing within churches, applauded, and two MPs, to be praising and put out of church.” “Audience does not help Democracy,” noted Mr. Giannoulis. For his part, Mr. Madzos said that the Metropolitan of Corfu also makes political distinction, since he excommunicates two opposition MPs, while praising the government MP for voting against the draft law of the government, which he supports. “This is an unacceptable insult to the democratic culture, the functioning of Members and the free parliamentary action and religious conscience of Members,” said Mr. Mantzos, noting that such unfair attacks should be avoided, as has been the case against PASOK MP P. Christidis from Archimandrite in southern Athens.
