Church blasts SYRIZA MP

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Arch­bishop Ierony­mos, the head of the Church of Greece, said on Sun­day he was saddened by the ac­tions of SYRIZA MP Van­ge­lis Dia­man­topou­los, who im­per­son­ated a drunken pri­est at a New Year’s Day car­ni­val.

“It is sad that at such a cru­cial time for the coun­try a mem­ber of Par­lia­ment would be­have in such a fool­ish way,” said Ierony­mos.

Thes­sa­loniki’s out­spo­ken bishop, An­thi­mos, was blunter in his as­sess­ment of the law­maker’s ap­pear­ance in Kas­to­ria. “He should re­pent and that might lead to his for­give­ness.”

Dia­man­topou­los rode a float dressed as a pri­est con­duct­ing a burial cer­e­mony for the EU-IMF mem­o­ran­dum.
