Lars Gårdfeldt refers to the so-called “right of way”. It gives individual priests the right to avoid marrying a couple in case of conscience concerns.

– Then the same must apply to me as homosexual, then I can say no to heterosexual couples, says Lars Gårdfeldt to P4 Gothenburg.

56-year-old gay priest has, among other things, attracted attention as a parliamentary candidate for the Feminist Initiative ahead of the 2014 parliamentary elections. He has also written a novel with pornographic homosexual elements.
