      Archbishop Demetrios of New York, head of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of
      America, presented retired South African Anglican Archbishop Desmond Tutu
      the "Athenagoras Human Rights Award" for the year 2000. The award was
      presented on March 4 in Manhattan at the Greek Orthodox Church's annual
      Banquet of the Order of St. Andrew, which honors Greek Orthodox laymen
      awarded the title of Archon by the Ecumenical Patriarchate of
      Constantinople.

      Tutu is a radical liberal who rejects the God of the Bible and historic
      Christianity. He maintains homosexuals should be allowed to serve as clergy
      persons. The "Associated Press" reported March 27, 2000 that Tutu joined
      several prominent theologians at the 'God at 2000' Conference at Oregon
      State to urge religious leaders to work together to find a new 'image' of
      God for the 21st century. "No religion can claim to have the whole truth
      about the mystery of faith," Tutu said. "The logic of faith will get through
      to even the dumbest of us." He also urged Christians to embrace other
      faiths.

      Author and theologian Marcus Borg, who teaches at Oregon State, invited Tutu
      and five of the world's most influential religious scholars to talk about
      how the image of God has changed. Borg opened the conference by saying his
      view of God changed dramatically from the stern Lawgiver he learned about as
      a boy to a God Who is beyond the understanding of any religion and "dwelling
      within each of us".

      He challenged Christians to open themselves to other religions that see God
      as the entire universe, and to reject "supernatural theism," or reducing God
      to human dimensions as an individual personality Who meddles with the
      universe.

      For many years the Greek Archdiocese and its sister jurisdictions have been
      walking down the path of 'Humanism'. At the end of this path is a religion
      which places its faith not in the Holy Trinity but in man.
