Christian bishop: Women who have anal sex while pregnant risk turning their fetuses gay

If Bishop Neophytos Masouras of Morphou could speak English a little better, he probably could be a breakout star on The Jim Bakker Show, considering his *unique* views when it comes to “unnatural” sex.

Speaking at a primary school in Cyprus back in June, the bishop warned about what he believes is a cause of homosexuality. According to him, women who enjoy anal sex during pregnancy risk transferring homosexuality to their fetuses, the Cyprus Mail reports.

“[Saint Porfyrios] says that when the woman enjoys that, a desire is created, and then the desire is passed on to the child,” the Greek Orthodox leader said, referring to a saint who reportedly advised gay people to abstain from sex and pray for their sexuality to be reversed.

As video of the Bishop’s words went viral on social media this week, a representative of the Cypriot LGBT rights group ACCEPT commented, “How are lesbians created?”

“So, father, if the woman does oral, will the child become a dentist?” another person commented.

“If the woman likes it at first and then she changes her mind, will that reverse the process?” commented another.

Although Cyprus decriminalized homosexuality in 1998 and has made huge strides in LGBTQ rights, bigotry still persists. Gay couples still cannot adopt in the country and they are still barred from serving in the military.

As Pink News points out, northern Cyprus, which is occupied by the Turks, only got around to decriminalizing homosexuality in 2014.

You can watch the video below. Even if you can’t understand Greek, it’s worth it to watch the confidence on his face has he disseminates this next-level stupidity.
