What is the Coptic Orthodox Church's view on how we raise children with respect to teaching them that Homosexuality is wrong, yet they are raised in societies where Gay marriage is now legal?
How do you reconcile your beliefs with being patriotic also to your country, on this matter??
Secondly, would an Orthodox priest attend a gay marriage ceremony if he was invited? Would that be OK? What would be the correct response to any gay couple to refuse attending such a ceremony??
I am writing this under the Coptic Orthodox Church's category as I do not have a personal problem, yet I wish to know the stance of the COC with respect to this issue.
