Russia's Foreign Minister: Homosexualism is unlikely to be accepted in Russia

Homosexualism is unlikely to be accepted in Russia, said Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.

"Attempts to load universal approaches with one's own additional views of the human rights, as is the case, let's say, with sexual minorities, which periodically causes such a nervous reaction from the European Union to our attempts to protect our society from the propaganda of homosexuality - I believe, these attempts go beyond the universally accepted values," Lavrov said in an interview with the Kommersant FM radio station.

"Given that the overwhelming majority of our country's population profess the Orthodox Christian faith, or at least follow the Orthodox Christian traditions, such makeweights added to the universal values will barely produce any shoots," the minister said.

"After all, other civilizations, non-European ones, too have their own values which are unlikely to take root on the European soil," the Russian foreign minister added.

I don’t believe homosexuality is widely accepted in America either, judging by the direction of so many states bringing referendums to the ballots banning homosexaul marriage and so forth. It’s a small minority in power that is shoving the homosexual agenda down America’s throat against the will of the people.

That would explain a lot.
