A religious leader says people turn out to be homosexual because of problems transferred to a foetus during pregnancy.
The Bishop of Morphou Neophytos claims that being gay is passed on when pregnant women have anal sex and enjoy it.
He made the comments during a speech in Akaki, Cyprus according to LBGT rights group Accept, which is based on the island.
He said: ‘It happens during the parent’s intercourse or pregnancy. It follows an abnormal sexual act between the parents. To be more clear, anal sex. ‘[Saint Porfyrios] says that when the woman likes that, a desire is born, and then the desire is passed on to the child.

Many studies have been carried out to find out why people are gay and no definitive answer has ever been given.
However, we can find no evidence of any scientific studies being carried out to find out if pleasure from anal sex in expectant mothers is or ever has been a factor.
Putting forward his evidence, the orthodox Christian Bishop told the people gathered before him that Saint Porfyrios had written about the issue.
