On Thursday, the Greek Orthodox Patriarch of Lebanon said it is time for the church there to assume a more prominent role in public life.

From the article:
Quote
The patriarch made his remarks during discussions with the Orthodox Gathering, which has recently resumed its efforts to boost the role of the community in Lebanese state institutions.


My only weakness is, well, never mind

He said he had a horrible house
I looked in it and learnt to shut my mouth

Come back my dream into my arms, into my arms

London is drowning, and I live by the river

They got his title wrong though. He's the patriarch of Antioch, not Lebanon.
"I saw a miracle where 2 people entered church one by baptism and one by chrismation. On pictures the one received by full baptism was shinning in light the one by chrismation no."

The news article does not use that title, the one who got is wrong is Biro in his summery of the article.

That's why I said sorry. I wasn't able to edit the post by the time I read the correction. And I'm "her."
