A Russian priest has warned men to shave their beards – Because they can become homosexuals according to the priest, Russian news website NSN.fm reports.
The priest, Metropolitan Kornily, Primate of the Russian Orthodox Old Believer Church (RPSC), said that men with beards were less likely “corrupted” by same-sex relationships.
A beard is a guarantee to “protect themselves from homosexuality”, according to Kornily.
“God set down certain rules. The Lord created everyone with a beard. No man can resist his creator. “It’s made a monstrous thing to see men’s clothing and hairstyles changing.”, said Kornily.
