Bulgarian Bishop Nikolay Rewarding Officials With Anti-Gay Medals of Honor


Maybe Stephanie Rice can swap one of her gold medals for one of the trophies being handed out by Bishop Nikolay, an Orthodox Christian pastor in Plovdiv, Bulgaria’s second-largest city. Already Todor Popov (mayor of Pazarzhik) and Stefan Yanev (the city’s prosecutor) have received honors for “standing up for Christian values, defending Orthodox Christian morality and spirituality, the sanctity of marriage, family, and statehood” after showing their support for a city ordinance that banned the public display of one’s sexuality. And if you take a public stand against abortion, you’ll win a stuffed panda!
