Stickers on smartphones with the Patriarch of Moscow and all Russia Kirill can be a danger to society. This opinion was expressed by Chairman of the Synodal Department for Church and society and the media Vladimir Legoyda.
He explained that when such images are used to ridicule it, in his opinion, “bad taste”. “There is something not laughing,” said Legoyda. According to the representative of the Russian Orthodox Church, the use of these stickers shows bad taste of smartphone owners.
As said Legoyda, in social networks people often hurt each other’s feelings. “There are among these people, and popular in the youth environment, the characters, the creators kind of “fashion design”. All this, of course, very sad, because, firstly, often just devoid of talent, and secondly, it is destructive to society,” — said Legoyda.
To date, a set of stickers with the Patriarch was downloaded more than 20,000 times. Whether the Russian Orthodox Church to demand the prohibition of such stickers, it is difficult to say.
Recently, the Russian Orthodox Church is actively developing modern ways of communication. Earlier, the press service Kirill announced the launch of the messenger of the channel of the Patriarch. This is done in order for believers to receive the latest news about the life and Ministry of the Primate. In addition, Kirill has official accounts on major social networking sites.
In addition to creating pages of the Patriarch of the Russian Orthodox Church plans to launch its own messenger app for smartphones. Its development involved the creators of the service “the Jelica mountain”, the employees of blessed Cyril himself. According to representatives of the Russian Orthodox Church, the use of messenger will allow priests to quickly convey information to your audience.
