Why do Greek Orthodox priests wear water guns?

Posted February 12, 2018 07:08:56 After the death of the first Greek Orthodox priest in Greece in January 2017, many people have wondered why his followers were carrying guns.

Now, they have an answer.

According to a new report from the BBC, the Greek Orthodox Church has banned its priests from carrying guns, which have become an important part of their religious rites.

The move comes amid the increasing pressure on the Greek authorities and Greek media over the violence in Greece following the death in January of the priest, Greek Orthodox Patriarch Bartholomew.

According the report, the decree was made on Friday and it will be reviewed at a later date.

The decree says that it is the church’s decision and will be taken after further study.

The decision to ban the priests from wearing firearms comes after the Greek police in January announced that they had arrested 10 Greek Orthodox men in connection with a series of attacks on churches and synagogues, in the northern city of Chios.

The police also said that they have seized firearms.

“It’s the right thing to do,” Patriarch Bartholy told the Greek daily newspaper Ekathimerini on Tuesday.

“Our priests are in a dangerous position, we must protect them.

Our churches are in danger, and this is the right time to make this decision.”

However, in recent days, the Vatican has accused the Greek government of “political pressure” and accused the church of being “a political party” in a recent speech.

Greek media has said that the decision to prohibit the priests was “in reaction to the increased pressure by the Greek Government and the media” on the church to stop its attacks on Greek Orthodox churches and the Greek Parliament.

The church’s leader, the patriarch, has since issued a series or sermons on the dangers of the clergy in the country, saying that it was necessary to make a statement to the public about the danger of the Church in the West.

However, the decision has sparked widespread criticism on social media and in Greece.

“I am against violence, I am against all kinds of attacks, but this decision by the government and the church is an attack on the Christian faith and the Church as a whole,” one commentator on the website of the Greek newspaper Kathimerini wrote on Tuesday, according to Kathimerinis report.

The Greek Orthodox church in the US is also under pressure, with a recent report in the Christian Science Monitor claiming that more than 70 US priests are under investigation over the killings of at least 10 women.

The US bishops have been in discussions with US President Donald Trump and the US Department of Justice over the crisis in Greece and have asked the US to support the US in its fight against the attacks, the Monitor said.

God’s Kingdom, God’s Church, and God’s Saints

We all know about the pope’s new role.

In some ways it is even more important that he does not go too far.

For many, the pope is a symbol of the Catholic Church, which has seen its ranks swell by almost 10 million in just the past year alone.

He is seen as a defender of the faith against the tide of populism that is gaining ground.

And for many, he is seen by some as an icon of a Catholic Church that is increasingly losing influence.

But for others, he has been a divisive figure in many ways, as well.

He was a priest who was a man of faith, but he was also a man who has had a long history of controversial behavior.

His behavior has also brought some very serious backlash in the Catholic community.

A group of priests in Louisiana recently decided to take action.

The group was called the “Church in Danger” and they were planning to take their case to the US Supreme Court, which could have a significant impact on how the church views itself and its role in society.

In the meantime, the church has decided to keep the pope on as a priest, which it did in the first place, as part of its decision to protect the pope from the allegations of sexual misconduct.

The pope has been in office since 2013.

He has a lot to do, but at this point, there’s not a lot he can do.

His current mandate is to continue his role as a spiritual advisor to the Pope, and he will not be able to do that until the end of his current term.

He will also be able only to remain in his office until 2040.

The Vatican has made no public comment on the court case.

In this new video, we hear from a number of church officials who are concerned that the pope will be a burden to the church in the coming years.

These include Bishop Paul M. M. C. Martinez, the director of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity, the group that is handling the church’s response to the allegations.

In his statement, Martinez writes, “This is not the end, but it is the beginning of a new chapter in the history of the Church.”

As we said in the beginning, this is not about the sexual misconduct of the pope, but about the role of the church and the leadership of the institution.

He’s been a good bishop and a good pope.

He does what he’s supposed to do and the church is grateful that he’s there.

But he’s not infallible, and this is a problem for him, and the Vatican is very worried about the way that he is being perceived.
