Following homophobic remarks from leading representatives of the country's civil society and media outlets, Unzipped: Gay Armenia continues to highlight the continuing prejudices against the LGBT community from the most unexpected quarters. In its latest post, the blog comments on the words of an MP, doctor and member of the ruling Republican Party of Armenia who not only praises the conservative nature of Armenian society, but also professes that he would never marry a woman who wasn't a virgin.
What a need to defend their rights?
I’m still shocked to read about people proud to be gay.
Even in the Holly Book it’s considered as a big sin…
Tigran, why not leave your comment on the original post?
Tigran, are you shocked, or are you \shocked, shocked\…
Tigran, what is the relevance of a fairytale written several hundred years ago as a tool to manipulate the masses, to the 21st century society in Armenia or elsewhere? As you may know, in all democratic states including Armenia there is a clear separation of the Church and State. So if you have some intelligent basis to argue a point please go ahead but otherwise don’t impose your christian beliefs onto others. I can’t tell you if being gay is something to be proud of but I can tell you with full confidence that believing in the bible is an indication of inferior intelligence.
