      Metropolitan Augustine Blasts Racism in Greece
      By Nicky Mariam Onti on October 28, 2012

      Orthodox Metropolitan Augustine of Germany’s Ecumenical Patriarchate has
      condemned what he called “xenophobia and racism, wherever they’re coming
      from,” noting an increase in racist and anti-immigrant attacks in Greece.

      Speaking to the Greek version of Deutsche Welle, he stressed that, “When
      such events occur, the Church cannot remain silent,” although the Greek
      Orthodox Church in Greece said nothing about an anti-blasphemy protest
      in Athens that included assaults.

      He also said that because of Greece’s crushing economic crisis that has
      put two million people out of work and increased hopelessness that there
      should be a return to spirituality. He noted that Greeks living in
      Germany share concern over the fate of their homeland.
