I was surprised by this, but Cliff says I should not be.
His Excellency Archbishop Demetrios
Primate of the Greek Orthodox Church in America
New York, New York
The Archbishop gave the benediction at the DNC tonight. I am stunned. I guess my perception of the EOC has been formed primarily by the converts like Huw and Karl and the "proto-dox" like my friend Cliff. Maybe I should peek again. I am sure that his Excellency will find me heretical even if he likes my politics. Ha! Then again, this makes me think that they are not the most liberal of Dems. But who can say? I will peek around and see if I can find his benediction to the Convention. It is important to note that the Archbishop was also in attendance at the funeral of Regan. So, perhaps he shows no partisanship. This could be a very good thing after all.
