Moscow, March 14, Interfax - The Moscow Patriarchate has cautioned the Moldovan administration about adopting a law on non-discrimination, which the country needs to pass to enter the EU.
"There are things that cannot be neglected even to improve the financial situation of people. If society's moral health depends on the adoption of a law on non-discrimination, the choice should be obvious. Moldovan leaders should put care for their people and protection of their country's interests first," Maxim Parshin, the head of the regional relations department of the Synodal Department for Church and Society Relations, told Interfax-Religion on Wednesday.
If a law "recognizing homosexuality as normal" is approved, it may cause "a serious conflict in society and can potentially lead to moral and demographic deterioration of people," Parshin said.
"The Russian Church assumes that the development of the modern Moldovan state should not lead to denial of its spiritual roots. The future of the country should be based on the traditions that the people of Moldova have followed for centuries," he said.
Parshin said discrimination can and should be prevented in ethnic and religious issues, but it "should not put before people a moral choice."
Parshin recalled that international law allows restrictions of human rights to protect the rights of other persons and morals. "However, the people who support the adoption of this bill in Moldova apparently don't care about that," he said.
The bill on non-discrimination drew protests from the Orthodox people of Moldova. In particular, protests against the bill have been conducted in the city of Beltsy and the nearby villages.
Gee, what’s not perfectly normal about sticking one’s schlong into somebody else’s poop chute? < / sarcasm >
Did you notice that there are 2 ongoing battles, one in USA, one in Russia, pitting religion vs non-ethics & immorality?
Gee, whats not perfectly normal about sticking ones schlong into somebody elses poop chute? < / sarcasm
And have your poop chute fall out of one from over use - nothing wrong with that/s also
Russia coveting the Romanian oil fields, again, I see.
To require a religious people to not discriminate against conduct they consider to be an abomination, is tyranny; and no less tyrannical by being called something else.
Hitler’s successors simply learned that using BANKS is more effective than using TANKS;they still want to dictate a socialist GrossDeutschEuropa.
