Greek Patriarch: Freemasonry is incompatible with Orthodoxy
Tuesday, 25 March 2014
The Holy Synod approved the proposal of the Synodal Commission on Heresies, issuing a circular announcing that no monk, priest or bishop can not be part of a Masonic Lodge. The Greek Orthodox Church considers incompatible the status of Freemason with that of Orthodox.
Also, Metropolitan Seraphim of Piraeus sent a letter to the Supreme Council of Greece, asking to announce the identity of the high ranking bishop which was initiated into the 18° Degree, accusing the Supreme Council of heresy and threatening the Sovereigns Grand Inspectors General with the excommunication by the Church.
