CWN Editor's Note: The Greek Orthodox diocese of Corfu has announced that two lawmakers who voted in support of legal recognition for same-sex marriage “cannot consider themselves active members of the Church.”

The two politicians were guilty of “the deepest spiritual and moral error” when they voted in favor of the measure, the Orthodox Church declared. The proposal, which won approval last month, made Greece the first predominantly Orthodox country to accept same-sex marriage.
