Catholic Bishops condemn desecration of holy picture

Catholic Bishops Conference in Sri Lanka has, in a message said the Catholic Community has been disturbed by the distorted image of Jesus Christ superimposed with the face of a politician now being circulated through the electronic media.

The message said: "It is a cowardly act by whosoever is behind this disrespectful and insulting action against the founder of Christianity who is loved and worshiped by millions of people worldwide.

"The last 2000 years have witnessed many a martyr who have sacrificed their lives for His name.

"While we express our hurt and disgust towards this action we urge those in authority to ensure that no religious founder be unjustly insulted in this manner and invite our faithful to pray for the renewal of the secular and temporal order especially the social media, for the well being of the human family."
