"85% of our society is Orthodox Christian. Of course, we respect all religions. We are a multi-religious, multi-ethnic society. But our leading faith, religion is Orthodox Christianity, which has brought our people, our country to this day. This is the truth. Our Patriarchate and Church have always had the right position because they stand for the truth. They protect the truth. The Church, the patriarchal society always calls to take the right position. Yesterday's statement was another statement of truth. I welcome this statement, I share its content and pathos. Society today needs calmness, intelligence, and it is necessary to calmly and firmly go through the small trial that is now in the country and in general, in the region and in the world. It is a very difficult situation, friends, it cannot be localized, it cannot be reduced to some narrow party misunderstanding. This is not about the fact that the radical opposition has some agenda and opposes us because of some things. Here we are talking about saving or not saving the country. God bless and if something had changed in the country, we would not have a country today. If they had succeeded 2-3 years ago and staged a coup, the country would no longer exist. The Russian army would have entered. War and trouble would spread throughout the territory. What was the purpose of Saakashvili's entry - the revolution and the war, the opening of the second front in the country. The society knows this well, the Patriarchate, the Church knows it well. Because the church has its hand on the pulse of the nation and feels well the dangers that are in the country. Therefore, calmness, intelligence and strength are needed", said Irakli Gharibashvili.
