Russian Orthodox priest Alexander Shumsky is glad his country has been knocked out of the World Cup because he says the event is homosexual propaganda.

Shumsky has warned that the bright colored shoes warn by teams are promoting the ‘gay rainbow’ and has dubbed the World Cup a ‘homosexual abomination.’

‘Wearing pink or blue shoes, [players] might as well wear women’s panties or a bra,’ Shumsky wrote in a column for Christian website Russian People’s Line, according to The Moscow Times.

‘The liberal ideology of globalism clearly wants to oppose Christianity with football. I’m sure of it. Therefore I am glad that the Russian players have failed and, by the grace of God, no longer participate in this homosexual abomination.’

Shumsky also thought some of the players’ hairstyles were ‘unthinkable.’

The Russian national team lost all its matches during the group stages so did not even reach the knockout rounds of the World Cup.
