A religious leader says people turn out to be homosexual because of problems transferred to a fetus during pregnancy.
Speaking at a primary school in Akaki, Cyprus, the bishop claimed that being gay is passed on when pregnant women have anal sex and enjoy it.
He said: ‘It happens during the parent’s intercourse or pregnancy. It follows an abnormal sexual act between the parents. To be more clear, anal sex.
‘[Saint Porfyrios] says that when the woman likes that, a desire is born, and then the desire is passed on to the child.’
The Bishop was speaking during a series of ‘spiritual meetings of dialogue’ that ran until this month, according to Accept LGBTI Cyprus.
The meetings are open to anyone and the audience ranges from children to elders with people open to asking the Bishop of Morphou whatever they want.
Many studies have been carried out to find out why people are gay and no definitive answer has ever been given.
However, we can find no evidence of any scientific studies being carried out to find out if pleasure from anal sex in expectant mothers is or ever has been a factor.
Putting forward his evidence, the orthodox Christian Bishop told the people gathered before him that Saint Porfyrios had written about the issue.
Saint Porfyrios is a relatively newly declared saint who died in the 90s who told gay people they should remain single and pray the gay away for the rest of their life.
