The Metropolis of Piraeus said on Thursday that it will “cut ties” with politicians who voted for the marriage equality bill.

According to Ekathimerini, Metropolitan Seraphim and other church council and administrative committee members have stated they would not invite any of the 175 MPs who voted for the bill to any parish event until they revoked the law.

“To protect our ministry and respect our responsibility before God, we sever our ties with those who voted against divine law, not inviting them to any parish event until they show genuine repentance by repealing this heinous legislation,” Metropolis of Piraeus said. 

Metropolitan Seraphim and other church council and administrative committee members have also signed a resolution “to address the consequences of the law on the marriage of same-sex individuals.”
