.- A Slovakian television station has been fined two-million koruna ($88,400), for making fun of a Vatican document on Christian driving, Agence France Presse reports.
Slovakiaâs broadcasting council said that a program on the commercial station Joj abused viewersâ religious sensibilities and was not objective.
The program targeted the 2007 document issued by the Pontifical Council for Migrants âGuidelines for the Pastoral Care of the Road,â widely characterized by media reports as teaching the âTen Commandmentsâ of driving.
The program said that priests were ânot the best expertsâ to give instructions on driving because the Vatican had "only two kilometers of highway and the last traffic accident was more than half a year ago."
Around two-thirds of Slovakians describe themselves as Catholic.
