Polémique en Géorgie sur l'utilisation d'images de Saints Orthodoxes sur des boîtes de préservatifs
Tbilisi, March 23, 2018
A group of politicians from the “Sakartvelos” party and faithful Georgian Orthodox Christians have addressed Georgian authorities, calling for a ban on condoms from the company “Aiisa” that feature blasphemous packaging.
According to party chairman Giorgi Liluashvili, the company makes products with designs and labels that offend the personal, religious, and national sensibilities of the Georgian people, reports Georgia Online.
The message was addressed to the President, Parliament Chairman, Prime Minster, head of the State Security Service, Minister of Internal Affairs, Chief Prosecutor, and People’s Defender of Georgia, as well as the Mayor of Tbilisi.
In particular, the company uses the images of revered saints, such as St. Tamar, members of the royal family, statesmen, politicians, and also Tbilisi’s “Mother of Georgia” statue, a beloved national symbol. They also blasphemously and mockingly make mention of Orthodox feast days.
The saints and theologians of the Orthodox Church have traditionally taught that the use of contraceptives is a sin.
The author of the statement to the authorities underlined that the products are fueling civil discord and strife and provoking tension and unrest in the country.
