832772Moscow, August 7, Interfax – Several dozens of young Orthodox members held a picket to protest the support of the LGBT community voiced by Alexey Navalny, a candidate for the post of Moscow mayor, in front of his election headquarters on Wednesday.

Navalny has recently said that LGBT activists should have the right to hold protests where they want to, the picket organizers toldInterfax-Religion.

Dmitry Enteo, leader of the Orthodox public movement God’s Will, said he was surprised by the fact that Navalny “uses this horrible sin instead of helping people rid themselves of it.”

The organizers of the protest said the picket was authorized by the authorities. However, Enteo was detained by police.

Since you are here…

…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 - Pravmir.ru, Neinvalid.ru, Matrony.ru and Pravmir.com. Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 euros 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 euros a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
