If that quote is correct and Sablin sincere, then I cautiously am compelled to applaud this man. What politician here in America has the courage to state without apology that these United States are: "...under God Almighty and not Sodom and Gomorrah...".
That said, it's clear that Russia engages in a devious policy of outlawing sodomy on its own turf but weakening other nations by encouraging homosexuality, pornography and pedophilia elsewhere else as cited in the Congressional Record of Jan 10, 1963:
18. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press.
19. Break down culture standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and T.V.
20. Present homosexuality, degeneracy, and promiscuity, as "normal, natural, healthy."
In other words, "do as I say, not a I do".
Heh, we are not dealing with Soviet Russia, any more, my FRiend.
We are dealing with Imperial Russia.
I’ve been there 4 times since 1998.
All their official documentation bears the Imperial Crest of the Tsar, featuring the Roman Double Eagle, St. George slaying the dragon, and the Cross of Christ in two places.
The Russian flag flying over the Winter Palace in St. Petersburg has the Red, White, and Blue horizontal bars with the Imperial Crest of the Tsar in the center of it.
Passports of the Russian Federation bear the Imperial Crest of the Tsar on their front cover, as well as a water mark on every page.
No sickle and hammer anywhere.
Among the Western Media, the Lenin mausoleum is called “Lenin’s Tomb”, with great reverence. The average Russian calls it “The Mummy”.
Upon the dissolution of the Soviet Union, the people of St. Petersburg immediately petitioned the Russian Federation to change the name of their city from Leniingrad back to its original Apostolic name.
There is much, much more I can share with you, but Russia is not Soviet any more.
Russia is not the Soviet Union...not saying they’re perfect by any means...but the Soviet Union died in 1991, and it ain’t coming back.
