(en) Greece, liberta salonica: From the psalms of David to the homophobic preaching of Ambrose (gr) [machine translation]

Date Mon, 2 Apr 2018 11:20:23 +0300

"They remove the sinners from the earth and the lawless, that there is none" (David, Psalm 103) ---- In the wake of nationalist rallies on the Macedonian and amid patriotic cries for both military detained in Turkey, it became known, and the fact of the acquittal of christianotalimpan Ambrose from the Greek 'justice'. This adopted brother had published a statement full of Christian love on the occasion of stirring the question of the cohabitation agreement between homosexual couples and having clarified that "We have no right to judge people! Judge of all of us is God "(!), In which he did not even call his flock - and here the word" flock "bears a completely literal meaning - in mass pogroms towards the people of lgbtqia + community. He is the one who had previously stated that if allowed by "law" he would buy a gun and would kill lgbtqia + people,

We would be disappointed if we did not admit that we are living in a society of which much is reactionary, deeply embedded in patriarchy, sexism and misogyny, homophobia and transphobia. Quite often fear does not turn into hatred for anything else in expression, language, culture. Even the satire against religion or church can bring you to the "righteousness" (it is difficult to forget the "Holy Paschio"), at the same time that the artistic expression is censored to a degree of vandalism and ... exorcism by funny-but all-dangerous Orthodox obscurantists. So when many people, when a declared fascist Christian pope incites racist crimes, is just another day when nothing remarkable happens.

In Greek reality - and of course not only - lgbtqia + people face a staggering sexist attitudes and practices in all areas of their personal and social life. From home, they have to give a fight to openly express their sexual direction, to work, they just have to conceal it, on the road, where the slacknesses fall down. Stable reproduction of homophobic / transfobic / amphiphobic substances etc standards leads to stereotypes so deeply rooted, which are often not perceived as such by the body of the sexist perception itself. On a daily basis, homosexuals, bisexuals, queers, asexuals, intersexuals, transgender people become the object of harassment, violence, exclusion, mockery and even attacks.

In the context of a capitalist society, Patriarchy, both in the form of oppression of women and heterogeneity (the ideological notion of the normal, hence compulsory, heterosexuality and the consequent, "abnormal" and " homosexuality) is aimed at disciplining and normalizing sexual / erotic expression and desire to set up, shield and perpetuate the model of family productive unit.

In a state where the criminal system is increasingly tightened to strike the world of struggle and resistance, the motivation to motivate killing racist hatred, in this case to lgbtqia + people, falls softly. The same is most likely to happen with the appeal, which, as disclosed yesterday, has been filed against the innocent decision. No judge, no prosecutor, no gear in the dirty system of "justice" will turn against another basic pillar of power, against the church.

This, of course, does not surprise us, because we have no illusions about bourgeois "justice" because we know very well that it is class and well-organized to support in any way the side of our class enemies. The world of the struggle, without illusions and assignments, must focus on how it will give its own answer. And the answer of lgbtqia + community or even some people who are part of, but those of us who struggle with them for the entire human emancipation and sexual and erotic freedom around the world, can not be other than the self-organized militant self-defense, the solidarity and dynamic resistance to all who threaten or threaten it.

Against religious fundamentalism and racist hatred that engenders against sexism and patriarchy against conventions and normality.
The answer must come from the competitive movement, from social resistance, from individuals directly affected by racism and from all forms of racism, and from all those who stand in them with solidarity and companionship.
