They have sinned and they pay the price.

A symbol of the fallen Greek Orthodox people is the hierarchy of the Church.

On June 27, the Bishop of Manchester, David Walker, stated on GB News concerning the resignation of Matt Hancock that he was more worried about the breaking of social distancing regulations than 'a middle-aged bloke having a bit of a fling'.
