Boo Russia SUCKS! St. Petersburg passes law that forbids promoting Homosexuality…
This is so bad, it is kind of the same thing as the Tennesse “don’t say gay bill” some conservative douchebags are trying to pass. Russia has now passed a law that makes it illegal to promote the gay culture among minors. So basically if you are wearing a t-shirt that says I love the Gays and a “minor” passes you on the street, you can get arrested and fined thousands of dollars…Wtf? Russia in general needs to be boycotted…And honestly, have these pricks not seen that all the efforts in the world to stop homosexuality has not worked one bit, we have only grown in numbers…
MOSCOW — St. Petersburg’s legislature passed a law on Wednesday aimed at eliminating what its backers called “propaganda” of homosexuality among minors, prompting fears among gay rights groups of an impending crackdown on their activities as other cities vowed to look into adopting similar measures.
The law, which follows similar legislation passed elsewhere recently, appears to be a reaction to increasingly vocal efforts by gay rights groups, particularly in St. Petersburg and Moscow, to attract attention to the issue.
Vitaly V. Milonov, the law’s principal drafter and an outspoken proponent of Russia’s Orthodox Church, who has referred to gay people as “perverts,” has accused gay rights activists of waging an aggressive campaign of conversion among Russia’s children with the backing of Western governments.
“This is a declaration of Russia’s moral sovereignty,” Mr. Milonov said in televised remarks shortly after Wednesday’s legislative session.
Russia has no morals…except the gays and their fruit flies…
Under the new law, which passed 29 to 5, “public actions directed at the propaganda of sodomy, lesbianism, bisexuality and transgenderism among minors” will be punishable with fines of up to $17,000. The law defines propaganda of homosexuality as “the targeted and uncontrolled dissemination of generally accessible information capable of harming the health and moral and spiritual development of minors,” particularly that which could create “a distorted impression” of “marital relations.”

We have not grown in numbers, we have grown in verve, pluck, and fortitude. We have not changed one iota from our demands, we have grown with power and strength to enable them. We are, we gays, the world’s largest unorganized grass roots political power movement the world has ever seen. Other protestors can only dream of 150 countries with protests like ours, and growing every day — not our numbers, but our determination to say, “Oh the hell with this crap.” And it gives lie to the idea that this is some Democratic-Republican American power thing. No, we gays are fighting the world. We have seen our enemies, and they are the heteros. And we shall not relent. Ever.
In Soviet Russia….. we protect the youth!
“the targeted and uncontrolled dissemination of generally accessible information capable of harming the health and moral and spiritual development of minors,”
What a bunch of BS.
