BISHKEK, Kyrgyzstan, May 31, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — The leader of Russia’s 150 million Orthodox Christians says homosexual “marriage” is unnatural and contrary to the conscience of every human being, which is why so many people resist its normalization for the same reason that people resisted fascism and apartheid.
In an interview at Kyrgyz-Russian Slavic University, His All-Holiness Kirill was asked about same-sex “marriage.” The Patriarch, who is well known for opposing sodomy, referred to legalized gay unions as false, “so-called” marriages. He then flatly stated that they are a threat to family values because homosexuality is a “complete break with the moral nature of man.”
The Russian government and its people have been under severe criticism from leaders in the West for standing against the normalization of homosexuality. “When laws are detached from morality, they cease being laws people can accept,” Kirill explained.
The Christian leader then said something immediately pounced upon by Western pro-gay mainstream media.
People resist the legalization of same-sex “marriage,” the Patriarch commented, “for the same reason that they resisted both fascist laws and the laws of apartheid — (because) such laws break with morality.”
Hence, the Western headlines:

“Patriarch Kirill’s statement will probably garner a lot of criticism with the gay pride folks,” Fr. Johannes Jacobse, founder of the American Orthodox Institute, told LifeSiteNews, “but he’s pointing out a fundamental truth: Gay ‘marriage’ is a creation of the state. Natural marriage, on the other hand, conforms to nature.”
