Fr. Josiah Trenham of the Antiochian Orthodox Church gave a talk a few years ago about the rise of Islam and the calls for Sharia law in the West (you can find it online via the website for Patristic Nectar publications; I can’t remember the URL off hand). In it, he mentioned the request of Russia’s very small homosexual community that they be allowed to have a gay pride parade in Moscow, similar to others that have gone on in various world capitals now. The mayor of Moscow, who is a practicing Orthodox Christian, told them no, so they threatened to take him before the Hague to force him to give them what they wanted. In support of the mayor’s stance, the head of the Russian Orthodox Church, then Patriarch Alexey II (memory eternal) appeared on TV with the grand Mufti of Russia. They wanted to present a united front of Russia’s religious people against the idea of the gay pride parade. The Patriarch spoke and said “We are a Christian nation and we believe homosexuality to be a sin. As Christians, we love people, and when you love people you don’t help them to sin.” The Mufti spoke next and said that he agreed with the Patriarch, and added “If there is a gay pride parade in Moscow, I cannot promise that blood will not be spilled.”
So, yes, there is something of a difference in approach to problems. Lord have mercy on His people in Syria and Ukraine.
