Romanian Inquisition: Orthodox Church Covers Up Street Art Mural Portraying Saint George! The Orthodox Church from Romania managed to cover up an amazing street art mural portraying Saint George, in the center of Bucharest, the country’s capital.
This event attracted international coverage given the fact that there are still European countries, like Romania, where priests and religious institutions are still censoring art and artworks, in a process that seems to be a new age inquisition.
The mural of Saint George was placed in a square neighboring a church and this created a real buzz in the entire area, and Orthodox Christians felt offended by the very unique and unconventional way in which Saint George was shown slaying the dragon.
Eventually, this lead to priests starting the process of getting rid of the mural as soon as possible, destroying an amazing example of street art, proving once again that religion still holds an iron fist in Romania’s current life and affairs.
These things should not be tolerated in the modern world, especially in a democratic country, because they are against our freedom of speech and people should take action!
Let’s raise awareness on what the church is still doing in some countries, because another inquisition is definitely on its way, just in a more subtle and different form!
