That's why it's pretty chilling to hear Vladimir Putin hurling accusations at the West and pointing out that what's going on is identical to what went on when communism was established and religion was completely expunged from the Soviet Union.
Between 1917 and 1937, almost a quarter of a million Christians were executed, and churches that survived destruction were converted into things like museums of atheism. Russian President Putin, who hasn't been shy about expressing his disapproval of homosexuality and has banned what he defined as "homosexual propaganda," had this to say:
Many Euro-Atlantic countries have moved away from their roots, including Christian values. Policies are being pursued that place on the same level a multi-child family and a same-sex partnership, a faith in God and a belief in Satan. This is the path to degradation.
Speaking to his people in the state of the nation address delivered at the end of last year, the Russian president defended traditional values, pointed out the moral bankruptcy of the West, and maintained that conservatism, both religious and societal, is what prevents what he defined as worldwide "chaotic darkness."
Quite the opposite of what goes on in America, where these days the only form of permissible discrimination involves the denigration of conservatives and people of faith, in Russia, it's now a criminal offense to "insult" the religious sensibilities of believers.

Do any Freepers have links to trustworthy reports on Putin?
It his latest just a version of Bill Clinton waving his 5 lb Bible after church or wiping a tear after Ron Brown’s funeral?
What he is saying is accurate, but considering the source.....????
People can say what they want about Vlad, but if Satan himself were telling folks to worship the one true God, he would still be right.
Putin is right. As religious observance in the West wanes, so does Western Civilization. Marriage, the cornerstone of our society and the bedrock of religion, is being torn asunder one brick at a time.
If we don’t turn this around, it will doom us.
No doubt Putin is being an opportunist here. But that’s what happens when no one else steps up to the plate. But it isn’t going to happen with the US, we are so far gone in multiculturalism , that we are forever incapable of standing up for Christianity anymore.
“Granted, criminalizing homosexuality and making “insulting religious sensibilities” illegal aren’t policies America should ever emulate.”
America dod just fine when homosexuality was criminalized and insulting the religious sensibilities of Christians when done by a government does violate the First Amendment.
Godless world communism is the liberal/progressive goal.
Bizzaro world indeed...
Putin did not criminalize homosexuality, he only criminalized homosexual propaganda to minors... but perhaps this is an essential part of the homosexual lifestyle?
But there is an old saying: No idea may be deemed responsible for the person who holds it.
And in this case, I fear that Vlad is correct...
Someone needs to. Certainly our president isn’t doing that.
“Putin did not criminalize homosexuality, he only criminalized homosexual propaganda to minors... but perhaps this is an essential part of the homosexual lifestyle?”
Yep. It’s their version of ‘breeding’, so as to perpetuate the species.
The it is the survival instinct that makes them react so hysterically.
Amen to that. And where Christianity evacuates, the long sword of Islam appears.
> Putin did not criminalize homosexuality, he only criminalized homosexual propaganda to minors... but perhaps this is an essential part of the homosexual lifestyle?
If you can have sex with another man’s anus, pedophelia isn’t that much farther a stretch. There does seem to be a correlation there. Extremely disgusting....
And if you are able to express pride in something the Bible and Christianity are so vehemently against, what does that say about what they think about Judeo-Christian culture, period?
The thing was, the government did not denigrate Christianity because the vast majority of them WERE Christians, and the ones who weren’t had a lot of respect for Christian morays and morals.
The 60s ruined America.
If Putin were a businessman in the US, he’d be a member of the Tea Party.
