Church leaders in Ukraine reject EU demand for new gay rights laws

EU = Cultural invasion

Churches in Ukraine have said they oppose expanded freedoms for gay people as a precondition for closer ties with the European Union.

Fr Ihor Yatsiv, spokesman for the Ukrainian Catholic Church, told the Catholic News Service: “Although we don’t create obstacles for these people in their relations with God, our Church speaks in traditional language on issues like this.

“We haven’t received requests so far for special treatment from homosexuals, and we’ve no plans to introduce any pastoral facilities for them.”
