Metropolitan Dodonis Chrysostomos #sexist #fundie

The Holy Synod of the Church of Greece speaks of “unacceptable” statements, which “tarnish and grossly unfair the essential initiatives and the quiet work of the Church of Greece”[…]
Metropolitan Dodonis Chrysostomos expressed the outrageous opinion that to become pregnant a woman must “have participation” and that there is no rape

“If she’s in a hurry… A woman doesn’t sit and rush without wanting to. Let’s not go crazy now. Well, let’s not go crazy”, “she doesn’t get pregnant with this matter, she has to be involved (…), both of them have to act in order to be arrested”, said the Metropolitan

As was logical, the political world and members of the government condemned, without a second thought, the specific statements, while Twitter also “caught fire” with users blasting Metropolitan Chrysostomos[…]
On the occasion of the sermon that will be given on Sunday in all churches against abortion, the Metropolitan said that the Holy Synod “listens to society”, that abortion is a crime and that “it is not possible to allow the “destruction” of a of an infant, of a child who, when conceived, has already begun to be life”

For cases where a fetus has serious health problems, he emphasized that permission should be requested from the Church to perform an abortion and that it should indeed be scientifically proven and not “with a financial guarantee of the doctor’s decision”

“If the child’s brain is going to turn out to be problematic, then he should ask for the help of the church and agree to have an abortion but with (…) a scientific and not a financial guarantee of the doctor’s decision,” he said characteristically

The metropolitan also noted that the Church is against contraception, leaving, however, a “window” for the cases in which if she conceives a woman is at risk of death and not “if we make love just for love’s sake”
