According to a bishop who knows little about life and even less about science, people become gay due to their parents.
According to him, when a pregnant woman engages in anal s*x whilst pregnant, it passes the desire to be penetrated from the rear unto the baby, making them gay.
This bishop was passing on this ‘knowledge’ to kids as he was reportedly speaking to primary school students in Cyprus.
“It happens during the parent’s intercourse or pregnancy. It follows an abnormal s*xual act between the parents. To be more clear, anal s*x,” Church of Cyprus bishop Neophytos Masouras of Morphou is reported to have said.
“[Saint Porfyrios] says that when the woman likes that, a desire is born, and then the desire is passed on to the child,” he added.
There’s no scriptural evidence for such a claim, not to even talk about scientific evidence. But then the religious make whatever claims they want to support whatever argument they want irrespective of reality. You know, like how a snake is the cause of all the suffering in the world.
It doesn’t even occur to this fundamentalist that lesbians, who are also gay, hardly have the urge to be penetrated from behind (ok, maybe some of them do). But what about the rest, how are lesbians formed then?
Besides, being gay is about more than just s*x, much like being straight doesn’t mean the only that matters about you is your private parts.
