The statements made by the Primate of the Orthodox Church on LGBT people are unacceptable and turn us back to the Middle Ages. The Church and the Archbishop cannot be transmitters of hate rhetoric. On the contrary, the acceptance of diversity must characterize a modern society.
(LGBT, , is an initialism that stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender. In use since the 1990s)
