Writing in his column on Christian website Russian People’s Line, Russian Orthodox priest Alexander Shumsky has denounced the World Cup as a “homosexual abomination” because of the brightly colored boots worn by players.

Claiming that the boots resemble the “gay rainbow,” Shumsky goes on to say that “wearing pink or blue shoes, [the players] might as well wear women's panties or a bra," reports The Moscow Times.

Also unimpressed with some of the “unthinkable” hairstyles sported by players, Shumsky continues that “the liberal ideology of globalism clearly wants to oppose Christianity with football. Therefore I am glad that the Russian players have failed and, by the grace of God, no longer participate in this homosexual abomination.”

Shumsky’s outburst comes amid allegations of racist and homophobic behavior by fans at World Cup matches and FIFA’s decision to award the 2018 World Cup to Russia despite the country’s implementation of harsh laws against the “promotion of homosexuality.”

Russia played only three matches in the World Cup, none of which they managed to win.

    I love it when homophobes make statements that are so obviously idiotic because it makes them look like idiots in the eyes of most people, who will come to associate anti-gay agendas with idiocy even if they haven’t been particularly pro-gay.

    flowers are colorful, and we all *know* that all male florists are gay, so that means all flowers are gay, making flowers an abomination.

    their orthodox church should ban flowers, shoes, shirts, hats, crayons, markers, paintings, cars, television, magazines, the internet – all colorful, and you can never be too safe – you have to be sure (like mennonites).

    it’s funny at first listening as bigots try to make their case, then sad once you realize they’re in leadership.

    One must remember the priests in the ROC are bearded dudes in dresses who condemned Conchita Wurst for being a bearded person in a dress. Religion would be funny if it didn’t terrorize people.
