Unless you were being sarcastic, the conservative Orthodox Christians who are members of this forum know better than to engage in a pointless discussion with secular humanists and "liberal" Orthodox who support the secular humanist position.
I suppose this event in the Russian Orthodox Church has been mentioned somewhere in this thread?Nizhny Novgorod Church In Which Homosexuals Married Demolished
Portal-credo.ru, 7 October 2003
The church in Nizhny Novgorod in which two Nizhny Novgorod gays, Denis
Gogolev and Mikhail Morozov, were married in September has been
demolished. Denis Gogolev reported this to a "Rosbalt" correspondent
on 7 October. He said that the chapel, located in the central portion
of the city next to an unfinished church, was destroyed several days
ago. "The church has become a depraved institution, practically a
sect," Gogolev said. "It spits on its own canons." "Only Lenin and
Stalin destroyed churches," the Nizhegorod gay stressed.
Denis Gogolev and Mikhail Morozov were married by a priest of the
Nizhegorod diocese, Vladimir Enert, for 15,000 rubles. He was
unfrocked by decree of the Holy Synod "for blasphemy against the
sacrament of marriage," and his coparticipant, Fr Mikhail Kabanov, was
banned from clerical ministry.
Denis Gogolev commented on the synod's
decree: "These ministers of the church knew what they were doing and
they took the money." Thus he does not see anything reprehensible in
the actions of the Holy Synod and he is sure that "there could be many
other clergymen dismissed for depravity." (tr. by PDS, posted 7
