Defiling Christian Objects with Porn is Not "Art" and is Not Acceptable, Says the Orthodox Church

"The porn-artist would not dare such an insult against Muslims, who are much less tolerant and much more ardent in defense of their faith than Christians. . ."

The Diocese of Berlin and Germany of the Russian Orthodox Church has addressed the administration of the town of Offenbach, expressing the indignation of the Christian faithful with the pornographic exhibition in the city.

The exhibition displays Christian holy images defiled with obscene and indecent pictures. The purported reason behind this sort of “art” is related to cases of sexual crimes allegedly perpetrated by some clergymen.

"Creative freedom does not imply liberty to offend other people and insult their common religious sentiments," said Archbishop Tikhon, Head of the Berlin and Germany Diocese. "Mockery of objects which millions of faithful Christians esteem as holy, is unacceptable."

Mr. Roman Lounkin, Chairman of the Center for Religious and Social Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences, has referred to the exhibition as a “questionable Christmas gift” and yet another test for the Christians of Germany, while Mr. Lucas Steinwandter, contributor to the Jungefreiheit, has observed that the porn-artist would not dare such an insult against Muslims, who are much less tolerant and much more ardent in defense of their faith than Christians.
