Orthodox people's deputy explains why he opposes LGBT parades
Servant of the People's representative Artem Kultenko stressed that he has always opposed LGBT parades.
People's deputy of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Artem Kultenko said that he opposes LGBT parades and explained why.
In a comment to Koshelnik_TV on the recent LGBT march in Kyiv, a deputy from the “Servant of the People” party said that he did not know about this action. Otherwise, he would have supported his colleague from the “For the Future” group Viktor Mialyk and “would have come out with him to support family values”.
“At that time I was at the Sunday service and did not know that such an action was taking place in our city. I have always opposed this. I’ve had discussions with many colleagues about this. I am against sin. I am not against people, I do not support someone to beat, rape, etc., but I am against sin. In the Gospel, in the Holy Scriptures, it is directly written – this is an abomination before God. As an Orthodox person, I cannot adhere to a different point of view,” said Kultenko.
As reported, on September 19, the LGBT march KyivPride-2021 was held in Kyiv. People's deputy Viktor Mialyk came out against the event, holding a poster with the words "God, the Constitution of Ukraine and human nature are against LGBT people in the country".
