Caricature of Holy Trinity in Journal Hurts Feelings of Christians

Country: France

Date of incident: November 7, 2012

Category: Social Hostility / Intolerance

Attack against: Morals

Area of case: Media

In an attempt to support a bill legalising same-sex “marriage” the journal Charlie Hebdo published the 7th of November a front page image that depicted the three persons of the Holy Trinity engaging in homosexual intercourse. The caricature transcends any standards of decency. It does not respect religious feelings in a way that one might speak of hate incident.

In response to the publication the French association Avenir de la Culture, member of the Federation Pro Europa Christiana, has directed an open letter to the Minister for  the Family requesting her support in a petition denouncing the “Christianophobic image.”
In support of Avenir de la Culture the Italian Foundation Lepanto has issued a petition.
