Russian Orthodox official blasts Supreme Court decision on same-sex marriage

admin | 08 July 2015
Metropolitan Hilarion, the chairman of the Department of External Church Relations of the Moscow Patriarchate, offered strong criticism of the US Supreme Court decision on same-sex marriage.

“The people who are into ‘democracy the American way’ and trying to reconcile it with traditional values need to think hard after this decision,” he told the Interfax news agency.

“You might not be told that they want to force you to adopt such a godless and sinful thing as same-sex marriages,” he added. “Remember: in reality they want to take your right to live according to the faith, take your soul, take your opportunity to build the life of your society and your state according to the eternal and invariable God-given moral laws.”
