Letter to Ohio Legislators re: Religious Freedom for the Patriarch
July 18, 2013
I write to you today as the spiritual leader of Greek Orthodox Christians in Eastern and Central Ohio (with communities in the Columbus, Cleveland, Akron, Canton, Youngstown, and Steubenville areas) regarding a crucial matter facing the world: the topic of religious freedom. Our nation was founded on a principle that each man and woman would be free to practice their faith without oppression or compulsion; however, this principle is not shared by all the countries with which we have relationships.
