Maronite Patriarchate: Bkirki's Doors to Remain Closed to Asmar Until He Atones for Sin

Maronite Patriarch Bechara Al-Rahi on Saturday utterly condemned the insulting comments made by the head of the General Confederation against Bechara Asmar against the late Patriarch Nasrallah Sfeir, announcing that the doors of the Maronite Patriarchate will remain closed to Asmar until he "atones for his sin".

In a statement issued by his media office, the patriarch shored up the reactions that followed the video leak, supporting calls for the resignation of Asmar from his post.

"The comments render the person who said them ineligible for a public service post and compel him to apologize to the soul of the late Cardinal and to all the Lebanese who were hurt by his behavior," the statement stressed.
