Orthodoxy main enemy of the West according to Carl Bildt

Summary of Disinformation

When Carl Bildt was the Foreign Minister of Sweden, he said that Orthodoxy was the main enemy of the West. Quote: ”Orthodoxy is more dangerous than Islamic fundamentalism. It represents the main threat to the Western civilisation, as it tries to regulate family relations and does not recognise gays and transgenders”


Printed newspaper
Disproof

The fake quote was debunked already three years ago, when it was first cited http://www.b92.net/eng/news/region.php?yyyy=2014&mm=05&dd=14&nav_id=90316 and subsequently refuted by Carl Bildt as a complete fake https://twitter.com/carlbildt/status/466563814251847680.
