Moscow's 100 year ban on gay pride parades upheld by courts
Digital Journal ^ | Jun 8, 2012 | Marcus Hondro

Posted on 06/08/2012 9:12:37 PM PDT by kevcol

Moscow city courts have upheld a ruling that in essence bans gay pride parades in that city for 100 years. The decision was rendered this week and already the Russian LGBT community is planning to fight it.

In response to Moscow's earlier ruling that they would ban gay pride parades for 100 years, Russian LGBT rights leader Nikolay Alekseyev had sought a permit to have pride parades in Moscow each year until 2112. Moscow's municipal courts denied his request and now the appeal of that verdict has been lost.

LGBT to challenge in European Court of Human Rights Alekseyev and other leaders of the LGBT community in Russia and elsewhere say the next challenge will be in the European Court of Human Rights. Russia has been a member of that court for over 12 years and cases originating in that country make up about 20 percent of the cases heard in the court. In the area of LGBT rights, the court recently ruled that same-sex marriages were not a "human right."

The Russian government has said that rulings such as that of the Moscow City Council are not anti-gay but rather rulings that protect "the majority's rights." President Vladimir Putin has not commented on controversial decisions by his government involving the LGBT community and Andre Banks of the LGBT rights organization All Out, has said that Putin will end up on the wrong side of history.

As if Putin gives a s**t about that...on the other hand he's probably very supportive of pervert parades in the U.S. and the repeal of DADT.

This will last until all the faggots unite and start protesting (In fabulous attire, of course
), then Putin has a choice ... shoot them or give in.

As if anyone parading for anything is a “right”.

Jesus, help us. It was either Rush or Mark Levin TODAY that went off about how nowadays everyone thinks everyTHING is a “right”.

Actually, Putin is in good shape. The vast majority of Russians are stridently anti homosexual. All Vlad has to do is decree that he will not commit police/legal or other government resources to do anything concerning the hell they bring on themselves and the problem will quickly solve itself.

Sure the UN and all will screech and haZ a hissy, but this is Putin we’re talking about. They can haZ their hissy till they turn blue. He does not care.

But I thought the "progressives" in the USA wanted a Soviet style system?

Unless the law is changed, shoot them. They are a fifth column enemy within workign to destroy the society where they exist.

These people have been watching too much western TV/media. Many of the old Soviet power people may be dead, but their methods live on in much of today’s counterparts. The gay lobby there think they are dealing with American Democrats. They will be corrected of that mistake before long.

The people don’t want it so they are not likely to be very upset when the purge begins. But as I said above, the people themselves are likely to do the purging IMO.

From my perspective, I don’t care who does the shooting. These degenerates are a real enemy to the society where they live. They’re seeking to overthrown the culture to shape it in the degenerate way they view the universe. we in America have a resolve to resist the islamic degeneracy, why is it we tolerate just as dangerous an enemy as the sexual degenerates who will destroy our culture given enough special treatment and access to our children?

I don’t see that resolve at all. I see a people fat and happy, willing to let muslims upend their way of like just as long as they can stay fat and happy. Aside from a few vocal opponents, most of America is perfectly content to make excuses for muslim and hono destruction of the foundations of what America used to stand for.

I submit as evidence all the hate crime laws, mosques, prosecutions/lawsuits for ‘offense’ and the like. There are a relative handful of us average folks opposed. None with the power/platform and willingness to actually take a public stand against either. When one rarely does, the GOP shouts them down/benches them/cuts their supply lines until they have sufficiently atoned.

Eventually people will fight back. But not until each and every one has been personally/financially screwed over/hurt or worse. Until then, they have no desire to rock the boat. I hate saying that of my own country, but it’s the verifiable truth.

How ironic as Russia was once on “the wrong side of history”. In a few decades the notion of “gay rights” will be seen as the absurdity that it was once viewed when the special interest groups empowering them as no longer powerful.

About the bridal pick. Makes me sad. This person has obvious mental health issues. Men chasing after other men is a sickness.

But I'm not sure which is sicker, the men doing it, or a society that celebrates it. My how far the human race has fallen.

Why does Russia oppose buggery between consenting adults?

The government hates competition.

Putin stayed away from the G8 summit because he is not a poofter like Sodom Hussein Obama...

We might think Vlad is a jerk, but he is no homo...

Not really...

The Russians certainly know a Marxist when they see one.

Cultural Marxism always leads to political and economic Marxism, and that is what the international faggot lobby is all about.

Why do you think Hitlery Clintong and the communists at our U.S. State Dept. attempted to interfere in the Russian elections and screamed bloody murder when Vladimir Putin legitimately won the election? (Yes, Putin did win the election fairly.)

This constant drumbeat for US military involvement in Syria from the EUSSR and UN should tell you something, especially when the Russians vetoed the whole idea at the UN.

(In Serbia, the massive anti-EU and anti-gay riot was a great example of the general public sentiment in countries where the Orthodox Church still has considerable influence.)

In case you haven’t noticed, the “gaystapo” and homofascists want a police state of their own.

I disagree...

The US State Dept. is full of neo-communists and they tried to steal the Russian election.

This is more leftist subterfuge against Putin for opposing a war in Syria, among other things, in which our own political “leaders” are willing to cozy up to the likes of Koffi Annan or the EUSSR and allow our armed forces to be used as a military welfare program for the whims of the leftist internationale.

Witness the constant drumbeat in the media about the USA ‘needing to do something’ about Syria, and that pathetic turd McAmnesty McCain playing the same tune of the international ‘human rights’ racket. Have a read of Don Rumsfeld’s book where under the guise of ‘human rights’ McCain and Graham skipped off on a ‘human rights’ crusade and undermined our efforts in Afghanistan.

(T.E. Lawrence drove the Turks out for a reason, but the multi-cultural Western Left is all too happy to let them back in.)

Putin is obviously not our ideal of political leadership in the USA, but he is really a Russian Cossack. The Cossacks were of the White Army factions during the Russian Bolshevik Revolution and suffered great repressions and starvation at the hands of the Red Army.

The gaystapo lobby in Russia is directly linked to the American Democrat politburo. Putin might be seen as a real prick here, but he is their prick... and I really don’t care if he has them all liquidated, they are more of any enemy than he ever could be.

Hopefully the former and not the latter...

The international ‘human rights’ racket is seen for what it is in Russia, they know a Marxist when they see one unlike a lot of Americans.

We did just fine for years and years without recognizing special privileges for folks like these, they should have stayed in the closet!

I do hear what you are saying, but we have opened the door to all sorts of evils. Whatever happened to the good old days when people were ashamed of their bad behavior?

A sane society based on natural law has a right - and a duty to the citizens - to prevent public displays or support or promotion of perversion, vice and mental illness.

Prohibiting public parades by mentally ill sex perverts has nothing to do with tyranny or kings; and everything to do with a sane and rational government guided by natural law. I’m not praising Putin’s government other than in this regard, it is defintely doing a much better job than ours. Our government is pushing sexual perversion and mental illness on the entire country and it has to come to a screeching halt and reverse course at top speed. People are getting sick and tired of mentally ill perverts running the show. They are at most 2% if that, and they should go back to their nasty little closets.

I know all full well that Putin is a KGB Thug who got elected president of Russia, however, if there’s one thing I do agree with, it’s that if people want to protest gay rights, dress normally, or even more critically, actually have clothes on rather than walk down the street dressed like a stripper or cross-dressing. I have no problem with what people do in their private time, so long as they keep their private business where it belongs.

Again, it’s rediculous when people pretty much walk down the street either cross-dressed or hardly wearing anything, if even anything at all down the street. WHy can’t our government at least act someone to dress somewhat casual?

Libertinism and “anything goes” is not the same as liberty based on natural law. THe funny thing about libertinism is what the hedonists want to do (and of course in public, etc) always gets more extreme. They want no limits at all. Any drug, any sex fetish without any restraint, any activity - now they want to normalize pedophilia, etc.

And the result? Naked people running around chewing other peoples’ faces, millions of molested kids, abortions, millions of illegitimate kids and slut mothers and beast of the field fathers, etc.

If the gov didn’t subsidize all that stuff much of the problem would go away. And the rest would go away once the gov stops forcing it down our throats.
