2012-09-19

The Catholic patriarch says Christianity is often a target. He mentioned that Jesus, the Church and the Bible are attacked and insulted in movies and documentaries. To prevent this, he wants the UN to intervene with a resolution. 

He argues, the UN needs to take action, since world peace is based on respect for God and all religions.
