Putin Signs Into Law ‘Gay Propaganda Ban’
RIA Novosti ^ | 30/06/2013 | Sergei Guneev

MOSCOW, June 30 (RIA Novosti) – President Vladimir Putin has signed into law a bill banning the promotion of “homosexual propaganda” among minors, Russia’s official website of legal information said on Sunday.

The law will levy fines for such offenses from 800,000 rubles ($24,000) to 1 million rubles ($30,500) for legal entities, from 4,000 rubles ($120) to 5,000 rubles ($150) for individuals and from 40,000 rubles ($1,220) to 50,000 rubles ($1,530) for officials. Legal entities may also be suspended for 90 days for disseminating gay propaganda among children.

Gay propaganda with the use of mass media or Internet resources will see harsher penalties of 50,000-100,000 rubles ($1,520-3,050) for individuals, 100,000-200,000 rubles ($3,050-6,115) for officials and 1 million rubles or 90-day suspension for legal entities.

While the law’s proponents argue it is aimed at protecting children from harmful influences, critics allege the move is part of a broader crackdown on Russia’s gay community.

Russia has come under international criticism, including from the European Court of Human Rights, for its treatment of the gay community.

Putin reiterated on Tuesday that the rights of sexual minorities in Russia were not being violated in any way.

When asked about a recently passed bill that would impose fines of up to 1 million rubles for promoting homosexuality toward minors, Putin said that sexual minorities “are full-fledged members of our society and are not being discriminated against in any way.”

“It’s not about imposing some sort of sanctions on homosexuality. … It’s about protecting children from such information,” Putin said.

“Certain countries ... think that there is no need to protect [children] from this. … But we are going to provide such protection the way that State Duma [parliamentary] lawmakers have decided. We ask you not to interfere in our governance,” he said.

Hey Vlad! Would you consider running for president here? You don’t have to be a citizen any more.

Never thought I’d see the day that Russia makes much more sense than the United States.

We need to rid this nation of the mystery man who is sacking the treasury???? for travel expenses and who despises America to the point that the only ‘work’ he does is to destroy it.

If we look closely we’ll find that Vladmir was born in Hoboken, New Jersey, won a scholarship to Columbia and then was editor of the Law Review at Harvard. Everyone in his class remembered him and he had a GIRLFRIEND.

He worked as a community organizer in St. Petersburg, Florida.

” It’s about protecting children from such information,” Putin said.”

OMG who would ever believe we would side with Putin. He is right. Putin is acting like a leader compare to Bathhouse Barry. I wonder if that is the reason why Putin does not talk to Barry. He knows Barry is a girlyman.

Russian Gay Community I wonder if San Francisco is their sister city? =)

Putin sure knows how to deal with them crybabies and those Islamic terrorists. Barry could learn something from him but doubt it.

Russia has figured out that it has a problem: declining population.

We U.S. Persons need to figure that out, ourselves.

Thanks to the promotion of contraception, abortion and acts of homosexuality, we are not even on pace to keep up our replacement population rate.

Meanwhile, Moose Limbs are having babies like crazy.

This great country is on the path to self-imposed oblivion. Soetoro and Rodham won't even have to fire the 2 billion bullets they've bought. Do the math.

Looks like I’ll need to find a way to watch Russian television...every series in the US, UK and Canada is chock full of in your face ‘this is normal’ homosexual episodes.

What Putin is doing would actually be nothing special under normal circumstances. It’s just the contrast to how insane the U.S. has become that makes it so revolutionary looking.

It’s like if you were starving, a saltine cracker would be a feast.

It’s the difference in living in a country with a Fag for President, and living in a country that has a man.

Gave Putin the "wide stance" at the G8 summit?

thsi is pretty freakin sad when a COMMUNIST is able to see the writing on the wall and is takign preventative measure to head off the immorality of homosexuality before it even gets started takign over their ocutnry- Hard to beleive that a Godless nation ‘gets it’ and oru nation has appareltyl lost hte ability to see how encouragign immorality will only leadv to our downfall

It appears thel eft ‘may’ see it, but are actualyl hoping form, and rooting for, America’s downfall

Let America's sodomites revel in their celebrations ...

and let their "christian" and "liberal" and "libertarian" enablers revel with the sodomites as well.


America's judgement is coming ... imagine a "nation-wide-katrina" catastrophe, and you get the idea.

I lived in New Oleans for twenty years, leaving fifteen years before katrina desvastated the city.

New Orleans (circa 1970-1990) was EXACTLY what America is today ... the most wicked obscenities "smiled and winked-at" by a large percentage of citizens ...

and the few voices who declare that "this abhorrent evil must end" are pilloried and crucified in the public forums ...

and even in the so-called "christian" churches there are limp-wristed calls for "accomodation" and "compromise" with the sodomites.



Even in St. Petersburg Florida, whose mayor is a declared pro-life christian ... he SHAMEFULLY issues a "letter of invitation" to the vile sodomites that will parade today down the city's streets, flaunting their evil and depavity ...

and their bloody hatred against all things "Christian".



Meanwhile, I calmly look at my wristwatch to check the time, knowing that at some future moment, the vile and putrid "Gay-Sodomite Pride" and "Pro-Choice Child Murderer Rights" celebrations ...

broadcast on every American television screen by the "Sodomite-Gestapo News and Propaganda Ministry" ...

and celebrated by the evil Executive Management of American corporations like Home Depot and J.C. Penny ...

will someday be sharply contrasted with the sudden and violent and deadly destruction of these same "American Sodomites" and their foolish and vile supporters in America's so-called "christian churches".



And just to prove the point ... just as EVERYONE instinctively KNOWS that katrina was the "Righteous Judgement of The Almighty" against the Mississippi River's version of Sodom and Gomorrah ...

and that NO MAN's fingerprints were on the divine judgement against the putrid and vile "Crescent City" ...

only the divine fingerprints of The LORD whose mercy and patience had been exhausted over decades and decades by the New Orleans sodomites ...



Someday ... the horror of horrors ...to be repeated against the United States of America ?

the "once and lost" God-Honoring Land of the Free, Home of the Brave ...

to be transformed into a morally and financially corrupt cesspool, it's once free and proud citizens SUBJUGATED under the bloody hands of FOREIGN INVADERS (illegal immigrants) ...

a once mighty and proud and God-Honoring military sadly defeated in battle ...

and the Four-Daily calls to honor the "Child-Rapist Mohammed" be issued from their once proud and majestic church steeples ?



Who will rise to be the American "Charles Martel the Hammer" against the godless sodomites, illegal invaders, and islamic terrorists being brought by the Federal Government every year to live on America's shores ?

“thsi is pretty freakin sad when a COMMUNIST is able to see the writing on the wall and is takign preventative measure to head off the immorality of homosexuality before it even gets started takign over their country”

Not that surprising, actually. Communism makes legislating morality pretty easy - there is no culture of freedom, no right to free speech, etc., so when the gov’t says “you can’t say ______,” no one really complains. The problem is, while they get the morality right once in a while (like here), what a Commie gov’t thinks is “moral” isn’t usually what you or I think is moral. That’s why I’m not cheering for Putin here - he may be after the right goal, but I still find the Commie way of doing things repugnant.

Putin isn’t doing anything we didn’t use to do, back when we were a civilized nation. There used to be laws against sodomy, and now in some states, they actually teach it to children as normal.
