Britain’s Metro reports:
Church of Cyprus bishop Neophytos Masouras has claimed women enjoying anal sex while pregnant is the reason that gay people exist. Speaking at a primary school in Akaki, Cyprus, he claimed that the enjoyment the mother experiences transfers to the foetus, making the child gay.
In a video translated by Metro.co.uk translators, he said: “It happens during the parent’s intercourse or pregnancy. It follows an abnormal sexual act between the parents. To be more clear, anal sex. Saint Porfyrios says that when the woman likes that, a desire is born, and then the desire is passed on to the child.”
The Bishop was speaking during a series of “spiritual meetings of dialogue” that ran until this month, according to Accept LGBTI Cyprus.
The Church of Cyprus is part of the Greek Orthodox Church.
