"DRACULA PARK" ROILS ORTHODOX AND LUTHERANS
BUCHAREST, Romania, JAN. 1, 2002 (Zenit.org).- Orthodox and Lutheran
leaders in Romania have energetically protested against the construction of
a "Dracula Park," approved by the national Senate in November.
The 120-hectare (296-acre) amusement park, planned by the Ministry of
Tourism, will be constructed, not surprisingly, in Transylvania.
The ENI agency reported that Orthodox and Lutheran leaders, in an official
note, said that the project "greatly harms Christian values, as it is
centered on cruelty, horror and occultism, values that have nothing to do
with the spirit of the Romanian nation."
