Britain’s The Metro reports:
A religious leader who said mums to be who enjoy anal sex are the reason why gay people exist has defended his comments. The Bishop of Morhpou Neophytos make the comments at a primary school in Akaki, Cyprus, saying the mother’s enjoyment transfers to the foetus, making the child gay.
He faced an international backlash and was ridiculed with some questioning what happens in the foetus to make a priest abuse children. However, he now says he was just teaching the words of the Orthodox church. He said: ‘I expressed the position of the Church and the position of the saints.’
He also compared being gay to a child having a musical talent. He said that if a parent is a musician there is a higher likelihood of the child will also be musical, according to the Cyprus Mail. This, he claimed is similar to planting seeds in a garden that carry information in their DNA that is passed on to the next generation.
The bishop claims he is merely using the words of a recently dead and recently declared “saint” who demanded a lifetime of celibacy for gays. The Greek Orthodox Church claims to have 25 million members.
