Archbishop of Athens and All Greece Christodoulos on Friday emphasized that he will not resign from his post as the powerful head of the Church of Greece, as an ongoing furor over corruption and inappropriate behavior continues to plague a handful of top ecclesiastical leaders, including some of Christodoulosí closest allies.

Christodoulos made the statement to reporters as he entered the archbishopric in downtown Athens, where he characteristically said the "Archbishop does not resign, he is annihilated."
