World Cup Is A Homosexual Abomination Russian Priest
Leadership (Nigeria) ^ | 7/9/2014 | anonymous

Posted on 07/09/2014 5:06:00 AM PDT by tellw

The World Cup is “a homosexual abomination”, according to one angry Russian priest, who says male footballers may as well wear women’s underwear and bras.

Orthodox Christianity religious figure Alexander Shumsky came out with the controversial stance against the biggest single event sporting competition as it reaches the semi-final stage.

Although most people might see the different types and colours of boots adorned by footballers as a good variety, Shumsky slammed the choice of footwear and claims that liberals are trying to drown traditional Christianity with football.

“Wearing pink and blue shoes is like wearing women’s underwear or wearing a bra,” he ranted on Christian website Russian People’s Line.

“The liberal ideology of globalisation is opposed to Christian values with football. I’m sure of it.”

The pink and blue boots which Shumsky is referring to are PUMA Tricks, which were released shortly before the tournament and were worn in South American this summer by the likes of Italy’s Mario Balotelli, Spain’s Cesc Fabregas and Brazil’s Dante.

Russia, coached by Fabio Capello, were unable to scrape out of Group H and were sent packing early in the tournament but Shumsky is delighted that his compatriots made a swift exit.

“I am glad that Russia were eliminated and, by God’s grace, no longer participate in this homosexual abomination that is the World Cup.”

The Russian priest even took offence at footballers’ haircuts, branding them “unthinkable” during his controversial rant.

Fifa will be hoping that Shumsky represents a tiny minority of Russians as the nation will be hosting the World Cup in four years’ time.

The best pair of sneakers I ever owned were Clyde Frazier Pumas. They fit great! Fortunately, I got black.

He posts here under several names. He’s from that wing of the Putinistas that has more in common with the mad mullahs in Iran than with normal citizens beyond the Russian police state.

What a dolt.

He should look at the clothes the Russian nobility wore during the entire "golden age" of Russian Orthodoxy.

Wigs, makeup, bright velvet padded jackets, tight multicolored hose, etc.

As incompetent a theologian as he is an historian.

The NFL has rules that the socks should be pulled all the way up—why not soccer shoe colors also?

FIFA should have banned the little highlighter colored boots long ago. I’ve always worn black—that’s how it should be.

David Beckham started the white shoe trend in the late 90’s, and it went downhill from there—maybe the priest is right?

Russian nobility...wigs, makeup, bright velvet padded jackets, tight multicolored hose etc (wasn't that because of their fondness for French culture?)

"then" and "now" isn't a good comparison. I have to agree that if it's a man's sport, colorful pink and blue sneakers are a weird fashion choice for its players.

Real guys dress like guys.

I dislike the homofascist agenda, but damn if stories like this don’t help us when trying to appeal to the mushy middle. This story will be trumpeted far and wide, and used to smear all of us fighting against the unnatural pervs.

No, what’s dumb about what you said is that because you hate soccer, you agree with the Russian preist that soccer is a homosexual abomination. That is dumb. Seriously dumb.

Perhaps your intent was to be funny or mildly ironic, but no, it came across as simply dumb.

I never understood the brouhaha over organized sports in the first place.

It seems like a lot of effort, noise and money for what amounts to nothing more than 'braggin' rights'.

Actually, real men can wear pink if they want. They don’t have to prove anything to you or anyone else.

What colors soccer stars (or anyone else) wear is completely irrelevant to any discussion on homosexuality.

I’ll amend my previous post: If the soccer guys start wearing assless chaps, then it can be relevant to a discussion on homosexuality. Bright colored shoes and uniforms? No.

People dress to convey an image. Guys wearing pink or lime green or whatever just doesn't say "macho" to me. It says "I'm the girl"

We don't agree, for sure. That's the way opinions are.

What makes pink a woman's color, exactly?

Boys dressed in pink in the 19th century, and pink was as common for shirts and ties then as it is now.

NBA players wear pink suits and NFL players wear pink cleats.

The moron featured in this article wears elaborately embroidered and multicolored flowing vestments when he celebrates the liturgy. People as ignorant as he is would describe his everyday garb as a "dress."

Google Cristiano Ronaldo manpurse if you doubt it.
In addition to the highligher colored boots, you have the trend of “tight fitting” underarmor style jerseys that has gone skin-tight for this latest world cup.

Just like the NFL, and “hoops” soccer has it’s foul-swingers too.

Ronaldo seems to be doing OK there with Irina Shaykh.

His luggage and the fit of his jerseys don't seem to have distracted him from the goal.

Maybe he should dress in rawhide and drive a Harley instead? Oh, wait . . .

I love soccer. Always have, always will. I was commenting on the crazy idiot article and how the dress attire for the sport has morphed into almost a pro-wrestler’s singlet.

At least FIFA hasn’t pulled out the ridiculous pink card (instead of a yellow card) like the NFL has with their pink flags.

The whole pink thing in the NFLS is simply shrewd marketing to a population they want watching and buying their stuff.

Read: women.

Pink for breast cancer awareness.
Jerseys tailored for women.

My apologies for missing your earlier point.

You hear no more country music at NASCAR races. Mostly rap.
Dale Jr. cut a rap record with a some loudmouth rapper. NASCAR started going PC years ago. Now most of the drivers don’t come from the South, and most never heard of moonshine whiskey. And calling the cars stock is a joke.
