Putin Signs Anti-Gay Measures Into Law
Moscow Times ^ | July 1, 2013

Posted on 07/01/2013 8:14:07 AM PDT by NCjim

President Vladimir Putin has signed into law a measure that stigmatizes gay people and bans giving children any information about homosexuality.

The State Duma unanimously passed the Kremlin-backed bill on June 11 and the upper house approved it last week.

The ban on "propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations" is part of an effort to promote traditional Russian values over Western liberalism, which the Kremlin and the Russian Orthodox Church see as corrupting Russian youth and contributing to the protests against Putin's rule.

Hefty fines can now be imposed on those who provide information about the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community to minors or hold gay pride rallies.

The Kremlin announced Sunday that Putin had signed the legislation into law.

Its time for Obama to fly to Moscow and give his fairness and equality speech.

What a crime we have in this country: children are forced to undergo homosexual indoctrination. I don’t think this is America anymore.

Especially the part banning the passing of homoprop to children... that’s a GREAT law. Russia apparently has decided to draw a line on societal degradation.

America has been slowly replaced piece by piece with its perverse polar opposite. Just as professional stock cars are just a superficial shell of the original nominal model, having all the "stock" parts replaced with high-performance components unrecognizable from the original, we are, indeed, a different country.

America always swings too far—one direction or another—Look to see much of this pushed back. I bet Obama will start a new Cold War and threaten world peace all for his Gay Buddies and making normal the thing most of the world sees as a perversion. He will try to force Russia to be Pro-Gay or call then Racists and Homophobes! That should make them want to cahnge there culture to please “The One”—did ya know he won the Nobel Peace Prize? Didn’t ya hear he’s the smartest man on Earth?

You’re right. America has become Sodom and Gomorrah. I left that new America and still live in the old America - my house and my garden. Hussein doesn’t rule here and his homosexuals aren’t here. Jihad Muslims aren’t here, either. Firearms/ammo have a permanent home here.

Obammy needs to jet over to Moscow and set up his teleprompters and get the homosexuals and lesbians agitated. Perhaps they’ll riot and get mowed down by the Russian police!!

In this country, having the first Negro-homosexual president, we put all queers on a pedestal.

to think that communist Russia used homosexuality to destroy America.
rule 26 and others.
http://www.uhuh.com/nwo/communism/comgoals.htm

Putin knows full well form his KGB days at how they used homosexuality and homosexuals to destroy us from within.

He knows America is now promoting this sickness and is protecting the kids and the country from these people.

Fairy boy bozo has no idea what normal is as he has never had a proper job, been promoted based on experience or even understand a proper relationship as a man , especially when he;s married to that woman.

homosexual can play family and pretend to be married as much as they want but because a pro fecal sex shrinks tells me they’re normal does nto mean I have to accept it and any of them ever telling me they’re married will be told in no uncertain times that they’re not

Putin just turned back the "doomsday" clock a bit (maybe back to where it was before SCOTUS took us to the brink).

(BTW for the world, "doomsday" is "curtains" (almost everybody in the world dies). But for the believer in Jesus Christ the coming of the end is a bright expectancy of His coming to take us before the nasties hit (like nothing anyone has ever seen nor will ever see again) and being with him culminating in ultimate triumph with Jesus crowned as King of Kings over the whole world.)

Really? ANY information? So kids cannot be taught the truth about the diseases and psychological damage such behavior inflicts? I bet kids CAN be told such facts. :)

No, they are more like vultures seeking prey among the dead and dying. Kudos to Marcella for declaring his castle off limits. More of us need to do the same and, where possible, organize with our communities, our churches and other like-minded folks to do likewise.

Linguistic activism is something else, isn’t it. Not “anti-gay,” and not even “anti-homosexual.” The measure is anti-sodomy.

I honestly wish. I mean sure they guy is no saint. But it seems to me like he’s straight up no BS. That can be worked with considering America is armed. You got a good idea where his head is at and know what you are dealing with.

And his ‘lefitsm’ is a hell of a lot more ‘American’ than the furthest right Obama ever stepped.

Oops, looks like Zero and his boy toy Reggie Love won’t be welcomed in Mother Russia. Obummer’s former White House aid and “body man” Reggie Love, who accompanied him on vacation in Palm Beach (without Michelle and kids), now tweets from South Africa — where Obozo just happens to be currently. The perverse sodomy fest and wasting of tax payer dollars for a male whore continues:

The fact that we haven't had an uprising yet leads me to believe that all Americans are worthless. They just live out their little petty lives. One day the enemy will rape their children and they will not understand why there is no one there to save them.

But didn’t Romney say Russia is “without question, our number one geopolitical foe. They - they fight every cause for the world’s worst actors.”

And didn’t McCain call Putin a KGB “apparatchik”?

Rush Limbaugh has said if you want to improve American productivity around the world, export liberalism.

Hamstring them with the same BS political correctness and “social justice” that impairs our own industry.
