Archbishop of Athens and All Greece Ieronymos, speaking to reporters on arrival at the Mets indoor stadium, central Athens, where the archdiocese's clerical and popular assembly took place, underlined the humanitarian work of the Church.
Ieronymos reiterated that the Church "is taxed and probably more than the others" and added that it is not requesting to be excluded from the real estate that yields revenues. He reminded that the churches, even in  the other religions and doctrines, are not taxed and termed "imaginary" all that is being said about large ecclesiastical property.
