Patriarch of Romania Slams Homosexuality in Easter Sermon
Patriarch Teoctist of the Romanian Orthodox church blasted homosexuality in his message to the faithful on Easter Sunday.
"The fact that evil threatens to take over the world and what is abnormal is increasingly being taken as normal, should be of concern to us all," said the patriarch.
"Young people should struggle against violence, immorality, sins going against nature, alcoholism and the hell of drugs," said the patriarch.
The Orthodox church in Romania is leading a fierce campaign to stop the decriminalization of gay relations in the country, a move which has been under discussion in parliament for several years – BUCHAREST (AFP)
