Greek Orthodox bishop denies urging Syrian Christians to take up arms

December 16, 2013

A Greek Orthodox bishop has denied urging Syrian Christians to take up arms, according to a new Fides news agency report.

Bishop Lukas El Khoury, an auxiliary bishop of the Greek Orthodox Patriarchate of Antioch, had allegedly said that “every young Christian in a position to do so should take up arms to protect Syria, churches, and convents,” the Fides news agency had previously reported. A Syrian Catholic archbishop strongly criticized the Orthodox bishop’s reported remarks.
