It's was said in another thread that Greeks were Godless because their women didn't wear headcoverings and everyone else became feminists.  Naturally, I don't believe that Greeks are Godless and that the Greek Orthodox jurisdictions (both New and Old Calendar) hold true to their Orthodoxy.  So, if anyone else has seen evidence that Greeks are becoming Godless, that would be an interesting point to discuss.   Smiley

What if God was one of us? Just a Jew Greek like one of us?

They've sacrificed too much to Dionysus, I think.

Maybe officially, but how many illegally and more coming in everyday.


Greece: Illegal Immigration in the Midst of Crisis


Once known for its large-scale emigration, Greece transitioned to a country of destination for Central and Eastern European immigrants after the fall of the Soviet Union and other communist regimes in the region. More recently, the country has become one of entry and transit for hundreds of thousands of unauthorized immigrants from Africa, Asia, and the Middle East. As a result, Greece is now grappling with issues related to its highly porous borders, mounting asylum applications, faltering immigrant detention system, allegations of human-rights violations, and the effective integration of the country's many foreign-born permanent residents.

Islam has been a cancer to every European nation dumb enough to open it's borders to them.

Now countries like France, Britain and Holland have serious issues with their burdgeoning Muslim populations that are looking to change the complexion of those former quasi-Christian nations and distinctly European ethnic makeup.

Islam, by defintion, is a state-building religion, don't ever forget it.

So yes, one Muslim in your nation  is too many.

Islam is more a mundane ideology than a faith system. Europe has democracy and respect for human rights, which helps Islam destroy democracy and basic human rights.

The only way the Greeks become "godless" is if and when the Socialists and globalists have their way with her.

It's the anarchists,communists and outside agitators that hate religion, not the Greek people.

The Greeks have a long, proud and glorious history with Christianity, they were and I believe still are, one of the strongest stalwarts and defenders of the Church. We need to support then now more than ever from the Islamic hordes invading from the East and the usurpers from within that hate God, the Church and most of all, Greeks.

Amazing isn't it? These are the same principles which they attack and destroy the Church with.

First off, probably in name only.

But the Orthodox and Catholic are the ones that made Greece what it is today.

Regardless of a few bad apples.

But you don't want the Islamic horde turning your nation upside down.

That's unless, you are either an usurper or really naive and buy into this "multiculturalism" garbage.

Well, this is their choice then. This does not change the fact that Islam compels its followers to conquer non-Muslim lands and subjugate all non-Muslims living there though.

And Catholics took revenge from Muslims when they conquered Cordoba and turned the biggest mosque into a Christian cathedral in return for the loss of Agia Sofia.  Wink
And Spain became a dominant world power while the Muslim cavemen decimated what was left of the Roman Empire.

How can schismatics be "one of the strongest stalwarts and defenders of the Church"?
Are you calling yourself "schismatic"?

No. But since I'm neither part of the Roman Catholic or the Eastern Orthodox communion I'm a schismatic from both points of view. But that's not my point. You called the Greeks "one of the strongest stalwarts and defenders of the Church" and yet you think them schismatics.

Schismatic does not mean heretical though.  Grin
