  • [01] Govāt sharply condemns bishop's anti-Semitic statements

    (ANA-MPA) -- Statements recently made on an Athens private television station by Metropolitan Seraphim of Piraeus were sharply condemned on Friday by the government through its spokesman, Giorgos Petalotis, who referred to them as "unacceptable" and an insult to Greek culture.

    "Such views are marginal, and an insult to Greece, our culture and society, an integral part of which is the Greek Jewish community," Petalotis said, adding that "everybody should be aware that (such comments) are flatly condemned by the Greek state and society."

    Petalotis said that "it is not the government's role to judge and comment on statements made by priests. However, it is its (the government) obligation to condemn the language of hatred regardless of who speaks it. It is its duty to stigmatise as unacceptable the language that denies the Holocaust, the biggest crime against humanity". (ANA-MPA)
