Greece: Blasphemy charges used to stifle free speech

November 19, 2012

Actors and the producer and director of an American play in Greece that depicted Jesus Christ and his apostles as gay have been charged with blasphemy, court officials said on Friday.

A production of “Corpus Christi” in Athens was canceled this month after weeks of almost daily protests outside the theatre by priests and right-wing groups, including deputies from the ultra-nationalist Golden Dawn party.

Charges of “insulting religion” and “malicious blasphemy” have been filed after Bishop Seraphim of Piraeus lodged a lawsuit against those involved in the play, the officials said.


The same man, incidentally, who believes that the Catholic church is a heresy and that Hitler was a tool of the Zionist conspiracy.

When you officially believe crazy things, that gives official powers to crazy people.
