Trump names Orthodox Christian as White House Chief of Staff

The forty-four year old Priebus has a long history in politics, and is a personal friend of House speaker Paul Ryan, which is expected to help in garnering legislative victories for the Trump administration, The Guardian reports.
Priebus has served as state treasurer and Republican party chairman in Wisconsin, and took up the post of Republican National Convention chairman in 2011, becoming a loyal Trump campaign adviser and helping to garner broad support that led to his victory.
More importantly, the soon-to-be chief of staff is an Orthodox Christian, and through his efforts with fellow Orthodox Republicans, the need for defending religious freedom in places of high risk for Orthodox Christians was added to the Republic Party platform, according to the Greek Archdiocese’s official site.
Priebus is an active member of St. Sophia’s Greek Orthodox Catheral in D.C. His 2016 Paschal message reads:
Christos anesti! I want to wish Orthodox Christians around the world a happy and blessed Easter. As our church has done for generations, we celebrate the resurrection of Christ and the love of God in providing a savior. Just as the first Christians praised God at the sight of the empty tomb, we too praise our good and merciful God today for his victory over the grave. Christ’s sacrificial work provides an example for us all, and we join with the Psalmist in saying ‘You make known to me the path of life.’ Easter is a time for the celebration of new life, and I pray we will all draw on that new hope throughout the year,
and on his personal Twitter account he exclaimed: “To my Greek Orthodox friends, Kalo Pascha and Christos Anesti!”

Διευκρίνηση- Προς τους αναγνώστες μας

Τα κείμενα και το υλικό, που παρουσιάζει η ιστοσελίδα μας έχουν πηγή τα διάφορα βιβλία και το διαδίκτυο. Αυτά παρουσιάζονται και πολλά μεταφράζονται για να προσφέρουν στους αναγνώστες πνευματική τροφή μέσα από τα κείμενα ορθόδοξης πνευματικότητας αλλά και τροφή για σκέψη και προβληματισμό μέσα από ιστορικά, πολιτιστικά, πολιτικά δεδομένα που παρουσιάζονται για πρώτη φορά. Υπάρχουν και κείμενα που δεν συμφωνούμε απόλυτα αλλά τα δημοσιεύουμε προς χάρη της αλήθειας, της ελευθερίας του λόγου, του δικαιώματος της έκφρασης της διαφορετικής άποψης. Σε καμία όμως περίπτωση δεν θέλουμε να σπείρουμε μίσος μεταξύ ατόμων, λαών και κρατών. Εμείς πιστεύουμε στην αγάπη και όχι στο μίσος, η αλήθεια όμως πονάει αλλά σώζει.

Sqarim - Për lexuesit tanë.

Tekstet dhe materialet që paraqet faqja jonë, kanë si burim librat dhe rrjetin e internetit. Ato paraqiten dhe shumë përkthehen që t'iu sjellin lexuesve një ushqim shpirtëror nëpërmjet teksteve të spiritualtitet Orthodhoks dhe një ushqim për mendjen dhe pikëpyetje të ndryshme nëpërmjet materialeve historike, kulturore dhe politke që prezantohen për herë të parë. Ka dhe tekste që me të cilat nuk jemi plotësisht dakort por i publikojmë për hir të së vërtetës, të drejtës së lirisë së fjalës dhe të shprehjes së opinionit ndryshe. POR, NË ASNJË RAST nuk dëshirojmë që të mbjellim urrejtje ndër njerëzit, popujt apo shtetet. Ne besojmë tek dashuria, bashkjetesa dhe në asnjë rast tek urrejtja por, e vërteta shumë herë shkakëton dhimbje por të shpëton ndërsa ai që urren në fillim shkatërron veten e tij.
