Poroshenko promises not to allow legalizing gay ‘marriages’ in Ukraine

“Head of the state said that unisexual marriages will not be legalized in Ukraine,” press service of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church reports resuming the results of Poroshenko’s meeting with officials of the Pan-Ukrainian Council of Churches and Religious Organizations.

At the meeting, Metropolitan Onufry of Kiev and All Ukraine expressed his fears over possible legalization of gay ‘marriages’ in the country.

“It was noted that all members of the council share his concerns over the problem,” the message reads.

On November 12, 2015, the Supreme Rada approved of a draft law that introduced such terms as ‘sexual orientation’ and ‘gender identification.’ Metropolitan Onufry earlier said that “such novelties can become the first step to promoting homosexual life style in Ukraine and attempts to legalize unisexual unions.”

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.
