The censorship-dependent Patriarch2009-10-28 23:55
Ilia the Second was not allowed to deliver a speech on TV. He wanted to calm down the people outraged by the insulting video records that appeared in the Internet but there was no technical opportunity to do that. It looks like the Church discrediting campaign is supported by authorities, although this fact is denied.
Patriarch of Georgia is seriously concerned about the people's growing anger that might turn into large-scale protest actions and disorders.
The opposition failed to bring the people Into the streets: it was Teona Tutberidze from the pro-American Freedom Institute, the author of the dirty video records published in the Internet who managed to do it by chance. She had an absolutely different purpose of accusing the Patriarch of supporting Russia; however, things went just the other way round.
Now public organizations and parties are preparing public speeches with the participation of students. The actions are going to be held throughout the country including the St. Trinity Cathedral in Tbilisi.
As to Teona, the regional coordinator of an organization sponsored by Soros Foundation and the American government, the authors of the letters and messages published on her page in Facebook threaten to punish her.
The life of the young woman who continues giving anti-Church interviews is really endangered: murders occur in the Tbilisian streets from time to time. Some time ago Ilia the Second even called upon his parish to carry no knives on them on account of the Georgians' excessively emotional disposition.
The government shrewdly turned the blow away from the Freedom Institute, having announced that Tutberidze is free to express her mind provided that she does not insult other people's feelings. The common people immediately turned their aggression against the executor of "political elimination" of the Patriarch, while the oppositional politicians and public activists still suspect that she represents powerful forces that are interested in bringing down the authority of the Georgian Church.
The second version is confirmed by the fact that earlier, Ilia the Second was not allowed to have the air to gold debates on the Georgian Public Television (GPT). It was said to be impossible for technical reasons, as Chairman of the GPT board of guardians Levan Gakheladze explained to the journalists.
At present, the first channel goes on the air only with the news releases: the new decorations for the altered light design are being installed in other studios, thus making a talk-show impossible.
