Man Who Blamed COVID On Gays Is Sick With COVID

ABC News reports:

Leading Ukrainian religious figure Patriarch Filaret has contracted coronavirus, after blaming gay people for the disease. The 91-year-old, who is the Patriarch of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church Kiev Patriarchate, is currently hospitalized with pneumonia.

Filaret caused controversy earlier this year after he made comments about the coronavirus being a result of gay marriage. He told Ukrainian national TV network Channel 4 in March that the pandemic was “God’s punishment for the sins of men. First of all, I mean same-sex marriage.”
