Russian Orthodox leader vows to continue battle against 'gay propaganda'

Catholic World News - July 22, 2013

Russian Orthodox Patriarch Kirill has confirmed his support for a new Russian law against “gay propaganda,” and said that “we must do everything to ensure that in the area of Holy Rus this sin is never justified by the law.”

The Russian prelate lamented that in many countries, defenders of Christian morality are now being repressed, the AsiaNews service reports. He warned against the belief that “the only real value is free will, and that no one has the right to violate this value, even when a person chooses evil or a socially dangerous behavior.”

    I wish Patriarch Kirill were Catholic. Unlike many of our own prelates, he understands that public acceptance of sodomy is a direct assault on the Christian understanding of reality. The Russian state has grown in stature in my view by its straightforward opposition to this grave moral disorder.
