Russia retaliates: New report says EUís promotion of homosexuality ignores real human rights issues
LifeSiteNews ^ | 1-16-14 | Hilary White

Posted on 01/18/2014 4:39:59 PM PST by ReformationFan

Far from backing down on its national ban on homosexual propaganda, the Russian government is going on the offensive, saying the European Union's promotion of homosexuality has led it to ignore real human rights violations, including the growth of ultra-nationalist and neo-Nazi groups.

Since the bill was signed into law, Russia has been the target of a massive international campaign, spearheaded by the European Union and homosexual campaigners at the EU, to overturn it.

A report on human rights to the EU by the Russian government, accuses the EU of “the dissemination of their neo-liberal values as a universal lifestyle for all other members of the international community.”

“This is particularly evident in their aggressive promotion of the sexual minorities' rights,” the report said. “Attempts have been made to enforce on other countries an alien view of homosexuality and same-sex marriages as a norm of life and some kind of a natural social phenomenon that deserves support at the state level.”

This approach, it said, “encounters resistance not only in the countries upholding traditional values, but also in those countries which have always taken a liberal attitude towards queers.”

The 150-page report, titled “Report on the Human Rights Situation in the European Union,” notes that massive opposition – with rallies of up to a million people – against France’s “gay marriage” bill were ignored or condemned by the French Socialist government as well as the EU. “Suffice it to recall the protest reaction of a major part of the French society to the decision on legalization of same-sex marriages in the country,” it said.

It says that while the EU’s obsession with promoting homosexuality has led to suppression of civil liberties, “xenophobia, racism, violent nationalism, chauvinism and neo-Nazism” are growing unchecked across the continent.

“In this context, it is still clear that the existing system of protection of fundamental human rights and freedoms in the EU remains ineffective and [flawed],” the report said. “In the context of financial and economic crisis that continues in Europe, grave violations of the rights of minorities, refugees and migrants are increasing, and social rights of citizens are being infringed upon…The facts proving systematic and mass violations of privacy and infringements on the freedom of speech and media have caused a special concern,” the report said.

At the same time, Svetlana Zhurova, the a gold-medal figure skater and Russian MP and the honorary “mayor” of Sochi’s mountain Olympic village, has defended the law. Zhurova, who voted in favor of the law, told Russian TV channel Dozhd that it was a matter of protecting minors.

“I think they just shouldn't show a cartoon on TV — excuse me, I have two boys — where a king loves another king,” she said to Dozhd, which was repeated in English on Buzzfeed.

The Advocate, a homosexual magazine, reported that Zhurova has also said that other politicians, who will not speak out publicly, have contacted her “to let her know they secretly support” the law.

The law, which has raised fury in other countries, particularly Britain, was passed first on a smaller scale in historic St. Petersburg and nine other Russian jurisdictions, outlaws the “propaganda of non-traditional sexual relations” to minors, including sex of any kind outside of marriage. The law effectively outlaws any observance of the “Gay Pride” movement that dominates many jurisdictions in Europe. The country has also moved to ban the adoption of Russian orphans outside Russia by homosexuals in countries with “gay marriage” or civil union laws.

Britain has pledged to send to the Sochi games the government minister responsible for passing the “same sex marriage” law, as a deliberate act of provocation. The British government announced yesterday that Culture Secretary Maria Miller will attend on Britain`s behalf. “Maria Miller has been a staunch champion of gay equality here in Britain," said Sam Dick, Director of Campaigns, at Stonewall the country’s leading homosexual political lobby.

In addition, the U..S has announced it is deliberately including three openly homosexual athletes in their delegation, and government officials from Germany, France, and the United States have said they will boycott the games.

While it continues to be the target of homosexual supporters outside the country, however, the law enjoys strong support from the Russian public. A 2013 survey found that 74 percent of Russians believe homosexuality should not be accepted by society, up from 60 percent in 2002.

Vitaly Mutko, Russia’s sports minister, accused the international media of fomenting the backlash against the law, saying that up to 88 percent of the Russian population supports it. He and the Russian government continue to insist that it will in no way affect the upcoming Sochi Winter Olympics.

I guess Russians know that folks CHOOSE homosexuality, bisexuality or asexuality.
God built us, body and soul, for heterosexuality. ANYTHING else is a choice...and not a good one, since it goes against God's plan for us.

It's not nice to fool mother nature.

I think it probably had something to do with it. I also wonder if Putin prohibited adoption of Russian babies by Americans because our nation elected Maobama twice. He probably figured that the majority of us were too stupid, indiscriminate and undiscerning to handle parenting responsibilities.

So it is ok, then. All those arms that Russia funneled to Syria, that were funneled to Iraq in turn to kill our soldiers. I should forget it all, because we elected a Muslim and FReepers find the Russian president more attractive (pun intended).

Yea, that was all fueled by that idiot who got “tired” of dealing with her Russian adoption. She put the boy on a plane, unsupervised, no destination, no nothing, back to Moscow. RETURN TO SENDER.

Kid showed up in the airport and Russian baggage handlers took him in and reported what happened to the authorities.

That whole episode went over like a LOUD FART in an Orthodox church.

Russians were beside themselves pissed.

Good analogy but I’d say even as recently as the 1980s it was America praying for the conversion of Russia.

Then we are on the same page. Reading some of the comments on these Putin bromance threads makes me wonder if some Freepers would have had Reagan hand Nicaragua over to Andropov if only the latter had announced his opposition to queerdom.

Arrest the stupid b7tch and throw her in the same jail cell those Green Peace terrorists once occupied. I sincerely hope the Russians recognize British provocation and give it their sternest response.

I don’t consider Putin a role model no matter how buff he may be. He is still a dictator as far as I am concerned. Even the worst dictator will do something commendable but that does not change the fact that he is a despot.

After all how many opposition journalists have died under his regime? Even the worst dictator will do something commendable but that does not change the fact that he is a despot.

Homosexuals and Muslims are perpetually offended by everything. They are not satisfied getting acceptance from the rest of the world, they want everyone to act and think the same way. At some point the two deviate groups will devour each other. Good riddance, spit.

In light of the fact that Iraq has now been taken over by terrorists thanks to Obama, I can’t really see what sense there was in those patriots dying. If they had known we’d elect Obama who would have Al Qaeda ruling Fallujah in no time, would they have bothered signing up? We’d have been better off nuking the place from orbit.

Obama is the worst thing to happen to this country. PERIOD.

I agree. And they are perfectly correct in that there is no reason why their popularly-supported domestic stance and law prohibiting the grooming of children for exploitation by perverted adults, should have anything to do with the Games. The sodomites are the ones inserting their agenda into this, no one else. They’re trying to turn the Olympics into a platform for advancing their agenda, as they do with everything, even the very Christian church whose holy text, the Bible, proscribes their actions. This is the rebellion, the hardness of heart and reprobate mind, to which God will turn them over.

If Russia’s plan is to weaken the West by division they have hit the jackpot. The Western world is definitely split between the immoral left and their advocacy of the homosexual lifestyle, and the moral conservatives opposed to this radical promotion of the homosexual agenda by our government at all levels, the media, many churches and all universities.

Russia may finally have found a winning horse to ride.

Who would think that Russia, at least on matters of morality, would have more freedom of speech and more tolerance of all viewpoints, including traditional Biblical morality, than the USA? The only thing they’re prohibiting is the corruption and propagandisation of their youth, but that’s the very target which the sodomites want to reach.

Have to agree with you.

Mussolini introduced rice to Italy and ended a famine.

Hitler said that Germans should all be able to travel to all parts of Germany freely and cheaply, and introduced the Autobahn and the Folksvagen, a car of the “people,” that “any man could maintain with a pair of pliers and a screwdriver.”

And Barry Hussein has declared that all AMERICANS have a RIGHT to healthcare.

Pootin has never said such things, he is an oligarch, a power hungry guy, but in MHO, he is the right guy at the right time for Russia.

His country is doing pretty good right now.

Can you say that about ours?

And I am not putting Obama forward as someone to emulate.

Sure Russia is in the best shape it has been in more than a century that doesn’t make him a nice guy.
