Well, it’s a theory

Homosexuality is usually a problem transferred to a foetus, when a pregnant woman has anal sex and enjoys it, the Bishop of Morphou Neophytos said during a recent speech, LGBTI rights group ACCEPT said on Thursday.

During his speech in June to a group of people in Akaki, the bishop said Saint Porfyrios made mention of the issue in his writings. “It is a problem, which is usually transmitted by parents to the child,” the bishop said.

He added that it occurs when the couple has sex while the woman is pregnant, and the sex is “unnatural,” as he characterised anal sex.

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

Sounds a bit Lamarckian to be honest. Maybe evolution works differently in Cyprus?

  1. Bloke no Longer in Austria

    I think that Gayness is inherent, rather than acquired. I consider my self straight, but was regularly confronted with homosexual experiences when still quite young and it didn’t affect me.

    Every Saturday we would watch Larry Grayson on The Generation game.

  2. Must say I find the Bishop of Morphou Neophytos’ message a clever way to dissuade women from having anal sex (sodomy) and it’s infection risks

    imo Anus is a “No Entry” street

  3. If God didn’t want women to have anal sex He should’ve placed it farther away from the baby maker.

    To err is human, no?

  4. Hallowed Be said:
    “Was this part of a sermon on why priests should not have kids?”

    Doubt it. He’s Orthodox; their priests are allowed to have children.

  5. By the way, he’s not “Bishop of Morphou Neophytos”; he’s Bishop Neophytos of Morphou (or Neophytos, Bishop of Morphou for the sticklers). Not Tim’s fault; presumably a dodgy translation in the source.

  6. So provided they don’t enjoy it then it’s ok and the child won’t be gay?
    I wonder what statistical analysis was used to look at correlation between women who enjoy anal sex and women whose children are gay and was it limited to pregnant women that enjoy it only or all women?

  7. These things run in families.

    Remember–if your parents didn’t have any kids , it’s likely you won’t either.
