Quoting from the article: "The measure is part of an effort to promote
traditional Russian values as opposed to Western liberalism." Russia’s system of government is different than the United States. They
do not have a 14th Amendment with an equal protection clause. The legislation
@worf;Nobody is going to make you have a same-sex marriage.
@worf --"Not excepting gay marriage is also a persons civil
right."Nobody cares if you personally accept gay marriage.
Nobody is forcing YOU to have a gay marriage.@Chris B --"I applaud Russia's stance"Russia's
"stance" is what allows for these violent assaults. Russia's
"stance" is what led to **protestors** being arrested during the last
big mob assault. That's right -- the people doing the attacking were NOT
arrested, while the peaceful protestors WERE. And those attackers included
PRIESTS. If you applaud Russia's "stance", then you ARE
applauding the violence.
Not excepting gay marriage is also a persons civil right.
I am not applauding violence, as those of you who disagree with me are
attempting to portray.It is ignorant and deceitful to put words in
another's mouth.I applaud Russia's stance against the
notion that homosexuality is a normal sexual variation without significant
detriments to society.For that I say,Well done
Russia!Keep up the good work.
worfMcallen, TX"This is like water to a thirsty man.Russia just set an example for the world to follow. Thank you."Worf, you are displaying your true colors. Those are not the
colors of freedom, democracy, freedom of religion or any type of morality.
@worf --"Russia just set an example for the world to follow.
"Yeah. If you can't reason with em, beat em into the
dirt.Great example there. Very Christian, too.Really.

Ranch and plainbrownrapperMany of us have found it does no good to
attempt to engage Chris B. his inane comments usually speak volumes for
themselves about him rather then the subject at hand.
@Chris B --"I applaud Russia for their stance against
immorality."Ummmm.....yeah.Chris thinks that violent
assaults are A-OK -- just don't let them evil gay boys love the people they
want to.Why am I not surprised?"they were attacked
by hundreds of Orthodox Christian activists and members of pro-Kremlin youth
groups. The mostly burly young men with closely cropped hair pelted them with
eggs while shouting obscenities and homophobic slurs."Riot
police moved in, detaining more than two dozen protesters, almost all of them
gay rights activists. Some who were not detained were beaten by masked men on a
central street about a mile away."This is what the encouragement
of homophobia leads to. Irrational violence and mob rule.Let's
try civil rights instead.
@Chris B;How is promoting immorality (bigotry and discrimination are
immoral) a "stand against immorality"?Orwell?
I applaud Russia for their stance against immorality.Keep up the
Article: "... 'propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations,'
which backers of the bill defined as 'relations not conducive to
procreation.'"So, does contraception (or abstinence, for
that matter) education or advocacy fall under this umbrella, too?It
will be interesting to see how lesbian porn, which is overwhelmingly designed
and marketed for straight male consumers, fares under this bill. I sense that
the legislators will carve out an exception somehow, at least for themselves.
Someone has to monitor the material to ensure the public values are not
