Follow-up: Cyprus Launches Hate Speech Probe of Bishop Who Said Gays Come from Pregnant Women Who

Cyprus Launches Hate Speech Probe of Bishop Who Said Gays Come from Pregnant Women Who Enjoy Anal Sex


A Cypriot bishop who claimed that gay people are created in the womb if a man performs anal sex on a straight pregnant woman and she enjoys it is under investigation by Cyprus police for hate speech.

The Most Reverend Metropolitan Neophytos of Morfou of the Church of Cyprus made the remarks in a speech to a group of people in Akaki. His remarks were confirmed by the Cypriot LGBTQ rights group Accept.

Said the bishop: “Homosexuality is usually a problem transferred to a fetus, when a pregnant woman has anal sex and enjoys it. It happens during the parent’s intercourse or pregnancy. It follows an abnormal sexual act between the parents. To be more clear, anal sex.”

The bishop claimed that when the woman enjoys anal sex, “a desire is created, which is then transmitted to the unborn child.”

The bishop later defended his statements after they went viral: “I expressed the position of the Church and the position of the saints.”

2. So if you're an idiot and you need work, join the Church of Cyprus.

They'll make you a bishop, and that sure as hell beats working for a living.
