During the Second World War, Greek Orthodox monks at Mount Athos requested and got the special protection of the Nazi Fuehrer Adolf Hitler. The monks painted icons of Adolf Hitler in his honour.
Read this report from Time magazing in 1941 about Greek newspaper reports about monks from Mount Athos kidnapping male children and ferrying male prostitutes to the island.
Anyone who thinks monks paying male prostitutes is a thing of the past just needs to talk to some of the residents of Patmos. I was told by a reliable source that he was propostioned by two monks and monks belonging to the monastery of St John the Theologian pay male prostitutes for sex in cars in the harbour area.
