Sofia Gay Parade under Fire from Orthodox Church

Date: 25.06.2010

The Holy Synod of Bulgaria’s Orthodox Church officially condemned Monday the upcoming Gay Pride Parade in Sofia.

In an official statement, the Church say the May 26-th march is a public, shameless and disgraceful demonstration of the sin of Sodom and a violation of the rights of the Synod, pointing out the event would have fatal consequences for the physical and mental health of people; it destroys the traditional values of Bulgarians, and seduces Bulgaria’s children and youth.

The Church further demand that the cabinet bans the march and appeal to citizens to not participate in this abomination that dares to oppose the order instated in us and the world by God – the Creator of everything visible and invisible.

The clergy also ask parents to make sure their children stay away from the parade in order to not witness the dangerous seduction.

“Let’s express our disagreement with this happening, which violates the God-like dignity of the human being, the sublime meaning of the family love between the man and the woman and the foundation of public morals,” the statement reads.

Twenty-five Bulgarian organizations, including the nationalist VMRO party, have united already against the 3rd annual gay pride parade in Sofia.

Meanwhile the British Ambassador to Bulgaria, Steve Williams, in a letter distributed by the Embassy’s press center, officially voiced his support to all those who will be celebrating diversity on June 26.
