Orthodox group to honor Vice President Biden for human-rights work

An Orthodox group will honor Vice President Joseph Biden for his human-rights work at an October banquet in New York. The Order of St. Andrew, Archons of the Ecumenical Patriarchate, will present Biden with the Athenagoras Human Rights Award, given annually to someone who has “consistently exemplified by action, purpose and dedication concern for the basic rights and religious freedom of all people.” Previous recipients include Mother Teresa of Calcutta, Elie Wiesel, Anglican Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Mikhail Gorbachev, and Cardinal Theodore McCarrick.
