‘A Desire Is Born, and Then the Desire Is Passed on to the Child’
Bishop Neophytos Masouras of Morphou’s Church of Cyprus, a Greek Orthodox Church in Akaki, told primary school students that men are gay because their parents engaged in an “abnormal sexual act,” and the mother enjoyed it. The enjoyment is apparently a pre-requisite.
“It happens during the parent’s intercourse or pregnancy. It follows an abnormal sexual act between the parents. To be more clear, anal sex,” the Bishop told students during a “spiritual meetings of dialogue,” the UK news site Metroreports.
The Bishop cited a recently deceased saint, Saint Porfyrios, who he says said “that when the woman likes that, a desire is born, and then the desire is passed on to the child,” Metro reports, citing the LGBTQ organization Accept LGBTI Cyprus.
There is, in fact, zero evidence of this unscientific claim.
On the Facebook page where the video is posted, commenters were only too happy to mock the Bishop’s false claim. Here’s one, translated by Facebook:
“So, my father, if the woman in time does oral, the child will become a dentist? Just a question my father!!!!! HAVE MERCY!!!!!!!!”
Pink News adds that the “clip went viral on social media in the country, with LGBT rights group ACCEPT asking: ‘How are lesbians created?’”

China vows to hit US with ‘reciprocal measures’ after Xinjiang sanctions
China said Friday it will impose tit-for-tat measures on US institutions and individuals who "behave badly" on Xinjiang-related issues after Washington slapped sanctions on Chinese officials over a crackdown on Uighurs and other Turkic Muslims in the region.
The Chinese response came after the US announced visa bans and an assets freeze on three officials, including Chen Quanquo, the Chinese Communist Party chief in Xinjiang and architect of Beijing's hardline policies against restive minorities.
"The US actions seriously interfere in China's internal affairs, seriously violate the basic norms of international relations, and seriously damage China-US relations," foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said in a briefing.

Former acting CIA director explains why Trump’s inaction on Russian bounty scandal will make things worse
It was revealed nearly two weeks ago that the Russian government is paying a bounty to the Taliban for killing American soldiers.
Since then, President Donald Trump has denied that he and his administration didn't know anything about it. Then he claimed it was a hoax. Now it has become clear that the stories are not only true but that if Trump read his presidential daily briefing in 2019, he would have been aware of the problem.
Speaking to the House Thursday, Trump's former acting CIA director Michael Morell explained that things are being made far worse by the president's denial.
