Russia Says It Will Arrest Openly Gay Tourists
T + E ^ | 10 July 2013 | Amanda Lee

Posted on 07/11/2013 1:50:03 PM PDT by MinorityRepublican

Russian president Vladimir Putin has passed a draconian law that calls for the arrest of anyone who is openly gay or supportive of gay rights.

Thinking of taking a vacation to Europe this summer? If a trip to iconic city of Moscow or the edgier St. Petersburg is on your bucket list, an anti-gay law recently passed in Russia may have you thinking again. It is now outlawed to be ‘out and proud.’

In a throwback to the country’s authoritarian ruling, Russian president Vladimir Putin has signed a controversial law that punishes people for “homosexual propaganda.” The law fines people—including tourists—up to 200,000 rubles ($6,240 CDN) for “propaganda of non-traditional sexual relations.”

You act if this is something new or unusual. Being an open homosexual or engaging in homosexual acts were against the law around the world for about 2 centuries.
Its not nice to fool mother nature and it is very dangerous to spit at God...

don’t kiss, or screw in public, and who the hell would know?

If that is to hard for gays (lots of straight people manage all the time), then that isn’t Russia’s problem.

Obama is trying to appoint all gay ambassadors.

This will work about as well in Russia with Putin as it did in Bengazi with the Muslims.

Actually this is helping to promote gay rights in the US.

When your views are associated with those held by an autocrat running a police state in Russia, and a lunatic dictator in Zimbabwe, it’s pretty embarassing and doesn’t exactly inspire people in this country to emulate them.

Good. About time someone stood up to the Pink Mafia types. They couldn’t just keep it to themselves and had to push it.

Yep. Vlad RasPutin knows what Zero really cares about. This is just a casual Nyah nyah nyah gesture, although I'm sure it pleases the religious base in Russia.

No, but they are very effective at spreading fatal STDs, giving the liberal population control freaks a twofer: no reproduction + shorter lifespans.

Actually this can be quite dangerous down the road for the USA. Might be even more impetus for terrorists to attack the ‘great Satan’ they perceive. This gay crap just feeds into their cause. If Christians get raptured then the USA will sink much further into an utter immoral abyss.

In your link Jefferson doesn't say anything about homosexuality, he's talking about sodomy; they're not the same thing; it's all oral and anal sex, including that between men and women, as well as men only, though it seems hardly anybody is aware of that.

This has been true of virtually all sodomy laws, and given that other than a microscopic number of extreme prudes pretty much everyone in the country has no problem with male/female oral sex these days, citing such laws and who supported them isn't much of an argument.

Don’t think I could ever trust former KGB. Especially Putin. My understanding (don’t ask for source, this is from a long time back) is he was an advocate of preemptive nuclear strike against the US. That’s pretty dangerous territory. You wanted to wipe us all out, and now you’re the good guy? So I’m trying to process some of these latest moves. On one level I’m glad to see them, and I understand that God is sovereignly moving in the midst of all this. At another level, it looks like it could be a PR campaign to draw religious conservatives back in to state loyalty. I don’t know ... it’s like trying to trust the Klingons, not working for me ...

Even if that statement were correctly characterizing him, Putin's nation is undergoing a substantial Orthodox revival, along with a renewed assertion of Christian morality, and this is what impresses us.

Russia won’t change the US for the worse. We’ve already made our bed with death and people finding it fashionable to side against Russia is just more evidence of that. Heck, even the so-called conservative party can’t wait to put distance between them and us dam breeders. It’s a Darwinian world out there and the fittest are and always have been those will reproduce.

No problem!

Draconian to restrict faggotry doesn’t scare anyone but preachers of open faggotry.

There’s one problem with this “draconian” order, our fine president is thinking 100 times before visiting Russia, or Putin may do us all a favor.

Putin must have done this because maybe there is some talk about a visit to Russia!

30% is better than it was, but the fertility rate is 1.61 children born/woman (2013 est.-CIA Factbook), which makes it 178th in the world. The replacement rate is 2.1.

The population growth rate is -0.02% (2013 est.), which is 198th in world. Not good.
