More tension looms between Church and state over the bill for same-sex civil marriage and adoption by such couples which Parliament recently passed, after Greek Archbishop Ieronymos reportedly expressed dismay with Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis’ speech during the House debate on the legislation. Kathimerini understands that the archbishop believes that the prime minister does not seem to accept that the Church should express its opinion on issues concerning society. On the other hand, Ieronymos is also reportedly annoyed with the choice of President Katerina Sakellaropoulou to attend a victory party at a bar in central Athens immediately after the legislation was passed.
