27-Year Old In Greece Arrested For Blaspheming A Monk On Facebook
By: Joe Weisenthal
Evidently in Greece, blaspheming a monk on Facebook is an arrestable offense.
Via @lolgreece and Peter Dimitrakos, here’s the Google Translated version of the arrest announcement for a 27-year old who blasphemed a famous Greek monk (Elder Paisios) using the mocking name Geron Pastitsios.
Pastitsios is a Greek pasta dish (hence the picture from the Facebook page showing the monk with a big plate of pasta)
Unconfirmed, but according to twittererers, his arrest was agitated by Golden Dawn nationalist types, and the government apparently complied.
