Greek scandal explodes

North American media are starting to tune into the scandal — scandals, actually — rocking the Greek Orthodox Church back in the motherland. Here is a CBC report.

Watch for this: “On Saturday, the 102-member Holy Synod is expected to approve a series of measures proposed by the archbishop, including greater involvement of civil overseers in the church’s financial dealings and “ethical misconduct.” Seminary students may also lose their exemption from military service — an obligation for nearly every Greek man.”
