The claim is true (that he said it, not what he said) Here is a link from a Greek news website with the video and a full quote https://www.in.gr/2019/07/26/greece/mitropolitis-oi-gay-genniountai-apo-ton-proktiko-erota-straight-zeygariou/ «Οι gay γεννιούνται κατά την ώρα του πρωκτικού έρωτα ενός straight ζευγαριού, και μόνο αν αρέσει στη γυναίκα.

Properly conducted longitudinal studies have found that, if anything, the trend is in the opposite direction. Only two longitudinal and prospective studies have examined changes in sexual identity over time, both of which were conducted among young women (Diamond, 2000; 2003; Sophie, 1986). Although no comparable studies exist on the sexual identity ...

I sincerely hope someone finds a newer result, but one of the textbook studies for this is one from 1978, and repeated in 1982 with nearly identical results. The study was set at Florida State University, and had people of both genders asking strangers one of three questions: Would you go out with me tonight?

The scientific consensus is that examinations of the sort described are both ineffective and unethical.

Armond Rizzo is a gay porn star of some repute (254k Twitter followers), and the top page or two of results I got for a Google search for ~gay porn star self-identified bottom. According to an interview with "Gay Demon" (explicit images present ...

The cause and effect relationship might be the other way around. People are using pornography because they aren't getting married (or having other forms of intimate relationships) as much as they used to. Current western society has become highly dependent upon technology. People seldom use their phones to talk anymore. They would rather send a text ...

I find it highly unlikely that you can prove anything like this hypothesis by any statistical method. Even if some researchers believe it. Beeing a sceptic I find that the world is full of believers in flat earth, no visit to the moon and so on. (Or sorry, not meant to offend, religion).
