Orthodox bishop in Moldova fined for anti-homosexual statements
Catholic World News - June 11, 2014
An Orthodox bishop in Moldova has been fined for saying that homosexuals should be barred from working in cafeterias and health-care facilities because “92% of them are AIDS-HIV patients.”
Bishop Markel of Balti/Falesti was ordered to pay $710 to the gay-rights organization that had filed a complaint against him because of his comments. He was also ordered to pay court costs.

Maybe in Moldova they are. Not much in this report from the GRO but outraged non-denial.

Why does Catholic World News and other Catholic organizations still refer to homosexuals as "gays"? What's gay about this perverse lifestyle?
