GAY RIGHTS’ activists have condemned Archbishop Chrysostomos’ latest tirade against homosexuality and said the church is irredeemably alienating itself from the real world.
Speaking at an Orthodox gathering in Istanbul on Friday, the Archbishop urged Orthodox churches to take a stand against homosexuality and accused secular Christian governments of “weakening moral integrity” through acknowledging equal rights to homosexuals.
His comments prompted a storm of protests on social media sites and condemnation from the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transsexual (LGBT) rights activist group ACCEPT-LGBT.
For Greek-speakers or computer-translator aficianados, here is a different article in Greek wherein the archbishop’s remarks are called “dangerous” because they might cause somebody to commit “homophobic violence in the name of God’s love” by the ACCEPT activist writer.
I think the homosexual civil-union question is heating up and will happen soon.
