US Senator Condemns Russia’s Gay Laws as Calls for Boycott Grow
http://en.rian.ru/ ^ | 08/16/2013 | Maria Young

Posted on 08/16/2013 9:32:27 AM PDT by massmike

The newest US senator on Capitol Hill took aim at the Russian government this week, condemning what he called the country’s “hateful” new law on homosexuality, and asking Russia’s Ambassador to the United States Sergey Kislyak for assurances that American athletes and tourists at the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympic Games will be safe.

The law bans the promotion of “non-traditional relationships” toward minors, a move that has outraged the Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender (LGBT) community and its supporters in the United States and elsewhere. Proponents say it shields children from harmful influences.

Russia doesn’t care. I think the Russian law is reasonable. The worst thing we ever did was dumb down the idea of what was obscene and perverted. Now the perversion is like some kind of holy writ. I don’t blame Russia at all. Russia is looking better all the time. They have a flat tax, homeschooling is even easier than here in the US, and religion has an increasing role in public life. Also Putin is more of a man that Obama. Its pretty bad when your previous enemy is beginning to look more like the country yours used to be.

This isn't even an anti-gay law. It sounds like an anti-pedophile law.

The law bans the promotion of “non-traditional relationships” toward minors, a move that has outraged the Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender (LGBT) community and its supporters in the United States and elsewhere. Proponents say it shields children from harmful influences.

Promote = solicit

You can't solicit gay sex with minors in Russia. Well, duh...that's illegal here, too. And, if you go overseas and abuse kids, that's illegal here, too.

Russia says that perverts shouldn't be soliciting their kids and neither should foreign perverts.

Yes they do. They want every classroom to be a little lgbt re-education camp. Can’t have kids growing up with heteronormative attitudes.

Marxist Manipulation of Language——”Hateful” is being used for those who “think” using Reason (Natural Laws) and Faith in the greatest Religion/Ideas on earth——”Christian Ethics” which created the most free/moral cultures in the history of man.

He is condemning those ideas which created the most Free and Just nations on earth—even for women—and ejecting them for the “thinking” of Satanists/occultists/muslims/Atheists/pagans where pederasty is “Good”, who “think” human beings can be used in a dehumanizing manner and as a “Means” (which is unchristian) and you can label it “Good” and it makes it so—a learned “urge” from child abuse—devoid of Reason/Natural Law.

How stupid are the masses who listen to such insane ideas and “allow” their US Senators to state such irrational, evil concepts-—as if a vile, dysfunctional, immature behavior is “Good” and a teleological end of human beings. How sick.

These people are forcing child abuse to be glorified and celebrated-—truly Satanic.

If push comes to shove, Putin will blink. He’s not going to detain anyone for anything gay related at the Olympics. But gays and their allies would rather get all huffy about things and demand a boycott.

Sad to consider that a major political party in this nation has as its biggest claims to fame the relaxing of homosexuality from almost all previous legal restraints and being in love with a medical? procedure that results in the virtual murder of unborn children.
and they actually claim to be proud of this.

He isn’t from Mass. He lives in Chevy Chase, MD. He only comes back to Mass to run for office and the “D” behind his name guarantees that the dumbasses in Mass will elect him.

In Russia they discourage homosexual pedophilia. Here in ‘the land of the free’ we tolerate NAMBLA. What’s wrong with this picture ?

Many moons ago, when the then “smartest man in the world” ruled the US.. (Jimmie Carter) the US boycotted the USSR, which caused a massive depression to American grain producers, shippers, a huge downslide in farmland prices, etc.

Please, Mr MOTU, let’s not repeat history!

Please excuse me for this, after I ranted at the grammar police. I assume you were typing fast or have the same crappy wireless keyboard as I do, you meant muslim right? The answer is never because our muzzi in residence is trying to tear apart muslim countries. His greatest ambition is to destroy Christian countries, America first and foremost.

Markey is a uber lib and the people of MA once again proved how clueless they are.

I call it the Kennedy syndrome. They were brainwashed by K's and can't seem to stand a mainstream legislator---"Do you know who I am" Kerry;" let 'er drown" Teddy; "let's stick Russia in the eye for gays" Markey--all cut from the same cloth.

I find it horribly unworthy of a US senator to worry about homosexual feelings in Russia when he should be getting to the bottom of Benghazi, IRS, US SPYING (ON US), SELECTIVE ENFORCEMENT OF LAWS, MAKING LAWS; RACIAL DIVIDE ON PURPOSE----the list goes on, and so do the mental derangement of Dems..

Russia is returning to sanity, after the long nightmare of entrenched Marxist folly. In the process they are reawakening to the faith of their fathers--or great grandfathers.

Let us hope that we can return to a more God-fearing America, without having to go through the long nightmare to wake up.

Unless they have set out purposefully to do this while in Russia, none of the Olypmic athletes need concern themselves with this law. Sounds like the homo/pervert lobby is upset because the athletes won't be able to try to recruit younger athletes to the homo/pervert "lifestyle".
