In a new development that we just learned from Greece, PM Mitsotakis announced during and after the oath-taking ceremony of a few new members of his government that the legislation about gay marriage will be postponed: “First, we’ll explain what we want to do, and then we’ll talk about a schedule”… And he added: “Don’t put the cart before the horse.”

This is a vast conservative victory for the Greek people and all Orthodox faithful. Greece already has a civil union law that covers all legal “necessities” for same-sex unions. The only purpose the LGBTQ movement and the Left insisted on gay marriage was to impose gay adoption on Greek society and, therefore, undermine the Church’s teachings and 2,000 years of Orthodox traditions.

There is a reason why we Greeks use the expression “Greek Calendar” (“ελληνικές καλένδες”) for similar situations – because once it is postponed, it is likely never to resurface again…

For the past few weeks, the Church of Greece and then Metropolitan after Metropolitan issued very severe rejections of the idea of gay marriage. Finally, the icing on the cake was the announcement of Mount Athos’ letter to the Patriarch, where “gay baptism” and gay marriage” are rejected scathingly.

Meanwhile, SYRIZA leader Stefanos Kasselakis was very upset with the announcement: “Our “liberal” Prime Minister, Kyriakos Mitsotakis, just compared thousands of Greek citizens to horses! “Don’t put the cart before the horse” he said regarding a potential bill to finally (!) legalize same-sex marriage in Greece. (A country with no separation of church and state, for the record.) I wonder: Is Equality the “cart”? Then who is the “saddle”? Is it the bill he is refusing to introduce in Parliament? Or is it the far-right wing that made him Prime Minister? Shame on him for the phrasing he chose on such a sensitive subject. I call on him to clearly respond: -Is the Prime Minister of Greece in favor of same-sex marriage, YES or NO? -Will he demand a strict party line vote from his MPs, or will he be feeding “hay” to his far-right audience while the progressive MPs make Equality a reality?”

BELOW IS THE NEWS IN GREEK ABOUT THE POSTOPONEMENT OF GAY MARRIAGE LEGISLATION BY MITSOTAKIS

Μητσοτάκης για γάμο ομόφυλων: «Πρώτα θα εξηγήσουμε τι θέλουμε να κάνουμε και μετά θα μιλήσουμε για χρονοδιάγραμμα»

«Μη βάζετε το κάρο μπροστά από το άλογο» είπε χαρακτηριστικά ο Κυριάκος Μητσοτάκης.

Ο πρωθυπουργός Κυριάκος Μητσοτάκης, σε κουβέντα που είχε με τους δημοσιογράφους στο Προεδρικό Μέγαρο, αναφέρθηκε στο νομοσχέδιο για τον γάμο των ομόφυλων ζευγαριών το οποίο έχει δημιουργήσει αναταράξεις στο εσωτερικό της Νέας Δημοκρατίας.

Οι δημοσιογράφοι, αρχικά, αστειεύτηκαν για τον ανασχηματισμό, ενώ ιδιαίτερο ενδιαφέρον είχε η απάντηση του Κυριάκου Μητσοτάκη σχετικά με το νομοσχέδιο για τα ομόφυλα ζευγάρια.

ΔΗΜΟΣΙΟΓΡΑΦΟΣ: Ανασχηματισμός θα γίνει;
ΜΗΤΣΟΤΑΚΗΣ: Δεν έχει άλλο, αυτό ήταν, το χάσατε.
ΔΗΜΟΣΙΟΓΡΑΦΟΣ: Δεν έχει δεύτερο μέρος;
ΜΗΤΣΟΤΑΚΗΣ: Μόνο αν πάω στο βουνό.
ΔΗΜΟΣΙΟΓΡΑΦΟΣ: Το Νταβός μετράει;
ΜΗΤΣΟΤΑΚΗΣ: Όχι, το εξωτερικό δεν μετράει, μόνο τα εντός.
Το… λαβράκι βγήκε ωστόσο σε σχέση με τον σχεδιασμό για το νομοσχέδιο που αφορά τον γάμο των ομοφύλων. Όπως προκύπτει από την απάντηση του κ. Μητσοτάκη, θα πάει πιο πίσω, μετά και τις αντιδράσεις στο εσωτερικό της Νέας Δημοκρατίας.

ΔΗΜΟΣΙΟΓΡΑΦΟΣ: Έχουμε ορατότητα για τα ομόφυλα ζευγάρια;
ΜΗΤΣΟΤΑΚΗΣ: Μη βάζετε το κάρο μπροστά από το άλογο. Πρώτα θα εξηγήσουμε τι θέλουμε να κάνουμε και μετά θα μιλήσουμε για χρονοδιάγραμμα.

  1. You write ” Greece already has a civil union law that covers all legal “necessities” for same-sex unions. The only purpose the LGBTQ movement and the Left insisted on gay marriage was to impose gay adoption on Greek society and, therefore, undermine the Church’s teachings” and destroy the institution of marriage in Greece and this is unacceptable .

    • Really, who cares … if you want to be a member of the Greek Orthodox Church ..the legitimate house of God with all its sacraments as the Original Church of Christ, and whose marriages is between a man and women , and blessed and certified by the Greek Orthodox Church, and then their children are blessed thru Baptism…you are in good standing , and let the rest of the Gay community have their marriages blessed by the New Global Governments , and you and I shouldn’t worry about it ! I mean their are 2.4 billion Christians in the world …do you think they are going to stay with a church whose Sunday School Teachers, Priest, and most of their faithful are promoting thru image and actions a life style inconsistent with the traditional family values they were brought up with! If i were the Orthodox Churches ..we should be marketing our churches for what the “Original Church of Christ’ provides … the legitimate worship of God and his principles ! That is all ..stay true to our foundation …and let the world do whatever they want! And if they choose to reject the Gay lifestyle … our doors are open!

  2. Cry me a River SYRIZA spoiled brat!
    Wonderful news to start the year ~
    gay leftists so coddled by secular world they imagine they’re always sovereign. Not!

  3. Even a temporary “delay” is better a statement

    These aggressive gay nazis target the church & it’s sign of the end times

  4. SYRIZA leader Stefanos Kasselakis was very upset with the announcement: ! “Don’t put the cart before the horse” he said regarding a potential bill to finally (!) legalize same-sex marriage in Greece. (A country with no separation of church and state, for the record.)

    Stephanos is right! But I don’t recall Stephanos complaining about Mistotakis funded Orthodox Church ordering with U.S Ambassador to Greece Pyatt… Bartholomew to destabilize the Orthodox Religiou order of centuries of the Ukraine which has led to State Control by Neo Nazi State control of Ukraine of the Orthodox Church of the Ukraine because they were affiliates of the Moscow Church ! I don’t recall Stephanos complaining about the State controlled Greek Orthodox Church and faithful of Greece supporting glorification of Jewish Zionist Regime of Ukraine as “roll model of all Future Government of EU and Greece, and remaining silent to atrocities and criminal crimes against Orthodox Christian Churches, clergy and civilians of Ukraine and Gaza! And I don’t recall Stephanos complain about U.S. state Department and LGBQt U.S ambassadors violating U.N charter laws by interfering and meddling in the internal affairs of most of the countries of the world , including Greece to support LGB…same Sex marriages and Human rights ! In Hungary , Orban government and Media … litterally demanded the removal from Hungary ..Jewish Ambassador to Greece ..Pressman and his husband for threatening the Traditional Christian values of Hungary and demanding that they stop buying Oil from the Russia Orthodox Country of Russia ! Now Stephanos … should be complaining about the U.S led EU governments, where Separation of Church , Media and State have never existed …and use ” Tax Exemption Laws” or outright funding of Churches to extort cooperation with the “Global Governments of the World” to spread LGBQT terrorism against the legitimate Religious orders of the world !

  5. Gay Mafia Is Sick!
    Those who are darkened by sexual depravity cannot be trusted to lecture others about what’s normal.
    Let that sink in.
    The abnormal cannot dictate
    what’s normal

  6. Let’s get vocal –we’re the Majority!
    We know who they are– and who their parents and families are. If they leave us at peace and stop calling us lunatics and homophobes– all’s well– When they start pushing their radical 5% agenda on us via the church– they will be blocked– stopped– like they were stopped several months ago from meeting on church’ grounds!
