  1. I agree with you. This young man, Giannis Antetokoumbo, is an inspiration to Greek Orthodox Christians everywhere. I think that wherever you see an Orthodox Church growing you will find that that Church has embraced this idea of Hellenism as an ideal open to all for emulation. That being said we should admit that the Hellenism which has come down to us as Hellenism is that which has already been “baptized” by the life of the Church. Socrates is the West’s favorite Ancient Greek Philosopher because he was the Church’s favorite Ancient Greek Philosopher. He taught monotheism and the idea that God cannot contradict himself, that God is good and for this “perversion” of the faith he was forced to drink the hemlock. Thank you for your effort in promoting our beautiful Orthodox diversity.
