Agence France-Presse 30.07.12 MOSCOW Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed into law a bill punishing people for homosexual "propaganda" in a move critics fear will fuel hate crimes. Rights activists and Western governments have criticised bthe bill as part of an unprecedented crackdown on dissenting voices. The anti-propaganda law introduces fines of up to 5,000 rubles ($156) for citizens who disseminate information aimed at minors "directed at forming nontraditional sexual setup" or which may cause a "distorted understanding" that gay and heterosexual relations are "socially equivalent". Opponents have called the bill homophobic and so vaguely defined that it would inevitably be used arbitrarily and stir anti-gay sentiment in the country. However, it sailed through parliament and Putin had promised in advance that he would sign it. The fines go up to as much as 200,000 rubles ($6,250) for officials if such "propaganda" is disseminated through the media or Internet. Foreigners will not only be fined but face administrative arrest up to 15 days and eventual deportation. Organisations face fines of up to one million rubles and a shutdown of their activity for 90 days.
A poll by independent Levada Centre in April showed that 39 percent of Russians believe that gays and lesbians should have the same rights as heterosexuals, while 47 percent disagreed. This represented a more conservative trend than a poll from 2005 where figures showed 51 percent for and 35 percent against.

Perhaps Russia will soon be like Iran - what homosexuals? We don’t have any.
Putin for President! (Photoshop a Hawaii birth certificate first, of course.)
If Obama signed a gay propaganda law, it be to make it mandatory.
No way! I thought we were on the wrong side of history?
I was channel scanning earlier this evening and I ran into a program full of fags tonight. I think it was called The Big Bang Theory. It was on TBS on reruns. First time I have seen it, well only for about three minutes.
Their tyrant is better than our tyrant...
Yep and the shows are all perverted, gay or straight, even the kid channels get in on this sometimes.
Good for Putin. I wish our President had half his brains.
But then ours is gay.
I agree totally. I venture out and see what the other side is doing every once in a while for as long as I can stand it.
On another note, I watched a movie on Netflix tonight. It was, Rhodes of Africa made in 1936, starring Walter Huston. It is an interesting history of South Africa in the late 19th century. I also learned how Rhodesia got its name, and it has motivated me to learn more about history about South Africa at that time and the parallels to American manifest destiny of the 1800's.
I tried to watch a movie called “The Bounty”, it was PG, so I felt safe. Big mistake. Hordes of naked women and sneering men chasing them and pawing them for a third of the film.
PG my big butt!!
That is native nudity. The reason why boys read National Geographic. (well, maybe not any longer.)
It was nowhere near PG
I think I have seen it. Mel Gibson and Anthony Hopkins were in it. At least it wasn’t gay. Not for kids tho.
The Big Bang Theory - is a comedy about three young theoretical physicists and their relationships with their GIRLFRIENDS.
nerds I think
although one of the girls does look like a bleached, faked plsticked up, porn star
I sure would love to trade Putin for our commie muslim pig 0dumb0! In fact I would throw in Holder, Bite-Me, Hillary, Valerie, Harry Reid & Pelosi, all for good measure! Get them the hell outa our formerly once great USA.
Check out the polling information from Russia. In 2005 people in Russia were much more receptive to homosexuality...
Can we throw in the RINOs and Tokyo Rove ?
Her name is Penny in the series, she's a waitress in a cafe, and if that's what looks like a porn star to you, I guess it doesn't take much to get your knickers twisted. Our family enjoys the show because the dialogue is brilliant. There's not a homosexual in sight.
Their godless Commie is better than our Commie.
wow....the commie has more sense than our president!
As a child of the early 1940s, I never, ever thought I'd live to see the day that a Russian leader gets an attaboy. The world has turned upside down in my lifetime. I've seen a man lighting a woman's cigarette turn from chivalry to an act of terror. And, of course, I've seen disgust with sodomites transform over the years from the normal reaction to what's now a hate crime. All of that's my long-winded way of agreeing 100% and I'll also join in:
They all look like faggots to me. I regularly work with PhD types, most are normal. Others are fags. The guys (I don’t want to use the word men) in the show are sorry excuses of manhood. They cry out that they are weak, city, metrosexual sorry excuses for manhood. They are not the type of men that built this nation and they do not represent fly over country. If you have a problem with that, I suggest you check out America away from any city. That is were real conservatives are.
Ain't no doubt about it in my mind.
Sad but true.
As a child of the mid 40’s I agree.
Russia is looking better every day
What’s going on today in the USSA is sick, perverted, and wrong .
The backlash against the abuse the political class is perpetrating on Joe six pack is going to be breathtaking
That show is more gay than the evil Muslim queer in the White House, and that’s hard to pull off
I’ll run through a drywall partition if necessary to get to the remote and change the channel within 15 seconds of it coming on
” There’s not a homosexual in sight.”
I dunno. Sheldon acts like an effeminate homo who happens to like girls in a weird way.
One example is Warehouse 13. My hubby likes it and I started watching it with him a few years ago. Last season they introduced a "gay" character but the only time it came up was when the new best friend was starting to have "feelings" for him and he had to set her "straight" (pun intended). There is NO reason at all to have to have a gay character in this series, other than it's the thing to do now and the Hollywood Gay Mafia has grown more demanding.
I was just thinking recently about where we are as a nation concerning sexuality. A mere fifty years ago TV and movie husbands and wives slept in separate beds! Now, in EVERY movie, soap, TV series, casual sex is the norm. Two people who barely know each other seem to have sex first and THEN try to see if a relationship develops. I can't decide if society changed because of "Hollywood" or if the industry was only reflecting society. I think we are moving towards homosexuality the same way - because the Media is in favor of it and they want the world to match their view. Your thoughts?
Obama is going be all wee-weed over this.
I’m under the impression you can’t tell fact from fantasy. They are all ACTORS. It’s a TELEVISION show, not REAL LIFE.
They are faggots to me. If you disagree, just imagine where that places you in my book.
I think mass media is so much of popular culture (people don't do things anymore that aren't informed or influenced by it) that people think this IS the way culture/society is, and this is the way everyone else thinks and behaves, so they start behaving that way, then the mass media reflects more of the behavior, then people change their behavior to reflect what mass media is telling them, etc. and things ratchet their way over into depravity.
It's not as if they're going to listen to what their peers at church/synagogue or Kiwanis club or bowling club or sewing circle or Toastmasters think.
On another thread, people were discussing why people leave the church. One argument was that the gospel wasn't being presented with conviction and consistency and a lot of church leaders were more concerned with entertaining their congregation and being "hip." I've seen popular culture infiltrate the church to the extent that its ideas are swallowed whole and cloaked in cherry-picked Scripture verses to make them palatable to the congregation. Never mind that it's a worldly rather than a heavenly idea being presented.
>> citizens who disseminate information aimed at minors “directed at forming nontraditional sexual setup” or which may cause a “distorted understanding” that gay and heterosexual relations are “socially equivalent”.
“Socially equivalent” nor physically equivalent. The anus is not a vulva; however, Buttgressives like to believe it is.
Very sad but true.
Putin doesn’t seem to be honoring the commie mandate of societal degeneracy.
Is the World cultivating new forms of political structure?
I really couldn’t give a rat’s patoot where you place me in your book, I’m an elderly Australian farmer and I’m telling you, as far as I can see, there is no homosexual content in the TV series THE BIG BANG THEORY.
My family wouldn’t be watching it if there was. We are about as much in favour of homosexual behaviour as we are of the PLAGUE.
Someone has some problems with one of the ONLY tv shows on at the moment that doesn’t have a fag character.
I don’t like the show either, but none of them are “faggots” by your definition.
Sheldon is absolutely gay but he is just repressed about it - so far. I have only watched a few times, but pay attention to what he wears. T-shirts with pictures of and emblazoned with the QUEEN Mary, shirts with rainbow colors, shirts with triangles. Subliminal message there. We all know Sheldon’s gay before he does. And Mayim Bialik, his “girlfriend,” was in an episode where she was toying with the idea that many young women experiment with lesbianism. I got all this from watching maybe 5 times.
Sheldon will finally come out eventually, and the producer was the same liberal producer Charlie Sheen torched before leaving 2 1/2 Men. You dont need gaydar to figure this out.
I hope there’s video of faggots being thrown into the backs of police wagons.
The Russian cops should get extra pay for risking infections.
Maybe as characters, but IRL Sheldon, actor Jim Parsons, is as gay as they come.
Russia cracks down on promotion of West’s ‘gay agenda’ (11Jun13)
The conservative trend against is probably a result of observation--how profane and divisive the militant homosexual agenda can be to a society.
I am not for "rounding up" and beating people who behave in an abnormal way...at the same time, we ought not celebrate sodomy or force people to celebrate this behavior.
My thoughts are that homosexuality is one of many things, but it’s really a nail to the coffin, if anything else. First America started embarking on overwhelmingly accepting sex as something totally okay outside of marriage, then more after that fell. By now, it’s also included unsustainable debt, everyone playing blame game on each other for every mishap possible, and who knows what else. At this point, the homosexuality acceptance part is just an attempt at trying to put a band aid on a severed limb to stop the bleeding. IMHO, sometimes it makes me feel like Nick Carraway in the Great Gatsby, where everything is upside down and tied in knots.
IMHO, I don’t feel that a guy or girl on the autistic spectrum having a successful married relationship is shown often enough. Showing that more can give some kinds of people some hope, but that probably just won’t happen while TV is up. Probably from some written blogs and books though. I guess TV has it’s priorities though.
