Prime Minister Viktor Orban met Patriarch Ignatius Aphrem II of the Syriac Orthodox Church in Budapest on Thursday, the prime minister’s press chief said.
The patriarch was one of the Orthodox Christian leaders who turned to Orban for help in
“stopping the European Commission’s plan to impose sanctions on Patriarch Kirill of Russia”,
Bertalan Havasi said.
Including a Christian leader on a sanctions list would “set a precedent that would confuse millions of Christians,” the patriarch said. He also thanked Hungary for consistently aiding Christian communities in need.
Orban pledged Hungary would not support sanctioning religious leaders as such a step would impact the religious freedom of Hungarian communities “which is sacred and inviolable”.
How about Havasi saying that it impacts upon the morality of millions of Christians worldwide when that allegedly ‘Christian’ Kirill frames the invasion and war started by Russia again Ukraine as some sort of Holy War and then blesses the very people accused of war crimes of a most horrific nature in a public church service on the 6th March? Havasi should be kicked out of whatever Church position he holds in addition to Kirill being sanctioned. Both are disgusting and profoundly unchristian.
