MOSCOW — A popular Russian actor said he wants to burn gay people alive because they pose a danger to his children, reports the Moscow Times.

“I’d put them all alive in the oven … it’s a living danger to my children,” said Ivan Okhlobystin, a father of six, in a chat with fans in the Siberian city of Novosibirsk.

Local news website reported Wednesday that Okhlobystin ranted about “gay fascism” and demanded that “faggots” be stripped of their voting rights as homosexuality is a “psychical anomaly.”

Okhlobystin, 47, is one of Russia’s most extravagant media personalities, and served as an Orthodox Christian priest as well as acting until his priesthood was suspended in 2010.

He currently stars in the Russian sitcom “Interns,” which is closely patterned after the U.S. medical sitcom “Scrubs.”
