The representative of the Russian Orthodox Church agreed with the Pope of Rome that sex between a man and a woman is a “gift of God,” but only if it happens in a marriage. The chairman of the Patriarchal Commission for Family, Protection of Motherhood and Childhood, Protopriest Dimitry Smirnov , informed the radio station “Says Moscow” .

The entire device of man is the gift of God. Sex is a component of love. But only love in marriage. Like a dinner, like a dream, like a shower, like bathing in the sea.

Sex, like getting pleasure out of wedlock, is fornication and adultery. This is a violation of God’s plan for man. This is a sin, and mortal.
