MOSCOW, July 21 (RIA Novosti) Head of the Russian Orthodox Church warned Western governments on Sunday against legalization of same-sex marriages what he called a sign of approaching end of the world.
Patriarch Kirill said during a service at Moscows major cathedral that the recent initiatives in a range of countries to legalize same-sex marriages is a dangerous and apocalyptic symptom that should not spread over to Russia, according to Russian media reports.
While those who fight the laws imposed by the minority are subject to repressions, Kirill, who leads the Church known for its conservative views, was quoted as saying during his speech at Kazan Cathedral near Red Square on Sunday.
Russian authorities have been repeatedly criticized by human rights groups and Western officials over a recently passed law introducing punishment for the promotion of nontraditional sexual relationships among minors.
Just like the homo population #s are cooked, the % opinion of Americans approving of HomoNation are also cooked. Just like the last election was cooked.
I hope the Pope is listening. He risks losing his role of moral voice for Christendom over his recent appointment to the Vatican bank and lack of unequivocal public condemnation of the homosexual agenda.
God is not amused and that is NOT a good thing. Unless you’re a born-again Christian.
Reread the story of Sodom and Gomorrah. IMHO, we’re getting close.
Patriarch Kirill is spot on, of course. I’m no great fan of Putin or his state church, it it is an embarrassment for once Christian conservative America having to be rebuked from that direction. But, then, God used an ass to rebuke the wayward prophet, Balaam.
Truth is, there are many Christian groups here in America that have long been on record against these things. The Russian Orthodox are just the latest to do so.
I understand it is legal in some states but there is a difference between legal and right. It may be legal but it is sin.
Homosexual marriage doesn’t have a prayer in Russia, the African countries, and I suppose a number of the Latin American countries. But the U.S., Europe and Canada are fading.
