The Russian Orthodox Church considers the fine of Muz-TV for gay propaganda to be fair

Metropolitan Hilarion believes that Muz-TV received a well-deserved punishment for propaganda of homosexuality during a music ceremony. Earlier, the court fined the TV channel a million rubles.

The representative of the Russian Orthodox Church noted that the propaganda of unnatural vices causes irreparable harm to people, especially children and youth.

“The law is on our side, and if the law is violated, then the perpetrators must be punished accordingly,” said the hierarch in the Church and the World program (all episodes of the program are available on the media platform “Watching”).

The Metropolitan continued his thought, posing the question more broadly: what is or what should be the educational role of television channels?

“If we look at the main content of what is shown on our television channels, various serials, then we will see that in these serials there is no propaganda of either a healthy lifestyle or the promotion of a healthy family lifestyle, we will not see large families in these serials, we we will not see happy children there, “the metropolitan stated.

According to him, “all the stories are built around adultery, which is perceived by the audience almost as normative.”

“I think that both the church and society have a lot of questions about our television channels.” It is about what educational function they perform.
