Patriarch Bartholomew Condemns Gay Life

admin | 11 September 2013

Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, in  a statement, said that cohabitation between gays is sinful and will never be accepted by the Church.

While in Estonia, he said that for the Church “the cohabitation between two people of the same sex is unknown reprehensible.” He also added that these are new “inventions” and has to do with a life full of sins.

It is the first time that the Ecumenical Patriarch mades such a clear and absolute reference on this issue calling the Estonian Government not to proceed in legalizing the cohabitation between people of the same sex and gay marriage.

Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew is visiting Tallinn, Estonia, since September 4, 2013, in order to preside over celebrations for the 90th anniversary since the declaration of the Estonian Church as Autonomous by the Mother Church of Constantinople.

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible -,, and Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 dollars a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 dollars a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
