Κατ’αρχάς, χρόνια πολλά, καλή χρονιά!! Kαι για να μη χαλάσω το έθιμο, ο Αντίχριστος δεν ήρθε ούτε το 2014. First things first: Happy New Year!! And to keep with my blogging tradition, the Antichrist didn’t come in 2014 either.
Ναι, ξέρω ότι αυτή είναι η Κοντσίτα Βουρστ, η νικήτρια της περσινής Eurovision, αλλά κάποιοι τη θεωρούν σημάδι του Αντίχριστου. Τι να κάνουμε; Yes, I know that that’s Conchita Wurst, the winner of last year’s Eurovision Song Contest, but some people consider her a sign of the coming Antichrist. Whatcha gonna do?
😛
Και τώρα ώρα για τον πρωτοχρονιά-τικο μπουναμά! And now it’s time for your new year’s present!
Ναι, ναι, το ξέρω, καθυστέρησα λιγάκι παραπάνω από ό,τι θα ήθελα, αλλά επιτέλους τέλος. Μπορώ με περισσή υπερηφάνεια να σας παρουσιάσω, όπως υποσχέθηκα, το Γενεαλογικό Δένδρο του Χριστιανισμού. Yes, yes, I know, I took my sweet time with this project, but it’s finally done. I can proudly present the Family Tree of Christianity, as promised.

On March 14th, 2013, Greek artist Dionysis Kavalieratos was tried in court on blasphemy charges brought on him by members of the ultra-conservative “Genuine Orthodox Christians” Church (the Greek Old Calendarists, that also starred in the “Corpus Christi” charade). The charges were due to the following three sketches exhibited by the artist in a private art gallery (the owner of the venue was a co-defendant).

Last time (04.10.2012) the people protesting the “blasphemous” play “Corpus Christi” promised to return with more support (some claimed that they would be complemented by Golden Dawn members; Greece’s resident ultranationalistic, if not fascist party). Yesterday afternoon they made good on their promise.

News agencies speak of a crowd of around 50-100 people gathering outside the theatre; among them the Golden Dawn MPs Elias Panayotaros and Christos Pappas (the same one who brought the Elder Pastitsios issue to Parliament). The reports speak of 4 MPs of Golden Dawn, but the other two are not mentioned by name and I didn’t see any of them in the videos.

Today we have the latest chapter in the rekindling of religious censorship in Greece, after the incident with Elder Pastitsios. You may remember this piece of news. It happened a couple of months ago, in June, when several actors that took part in the “Corpus Christi” play were arrested on charges of blasphemy. Well, there have been developments.

According to TVXS.gr yesterday (04.10.2012) the accused appeared before a court to defend the play, since the Holy Synod of the Church of Greece didn’t think their remorseful press release was enough and finally filed for a restraining order on the grouds of blaspheming against Christ and demanding the play be cancelled.

It is unknown who filed the charge, but a few days earlier the Synod of the Church of Greece released the following statement, about the play:
