February 07, 2014, 10:11 am Pelosi: Russian anti-gay law like stepping into 'ancient history'

By Mario Trujillo

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Russia's anti-gay laws are like stepping into “ancient history” and expressed disappointment that the Winter Olympics are being held in Sochi.

Russia’s anti-gay laws make it inappropriate to hold the games there, Pelosi said, adding the Olympics Committee has “never been concerned about human rights.”

“In light of the LGBT issues, it is like going into ancient history,” she said on NowThis News. “The whole world is moved to a different place, and that there should even be an issue speaks to the inappropriateness of Russia being the site for the Winter Olympics.”

She added: “I'm disappointed that Sochi is the site.”

The law passed last year bars propaganda of “non-traditional” sexual relations aimed at minors. The real-world effects of the law go much farther, critics say.

The majority of recent criticism of the Olympic site has stemmed from security issues, as the Homeland Security Committee has warned flights to Russia to be on the lookout for explosive material hidden in toothpaste and cosmetic tubes.

Pelosi did not address the issue in the short, 45-second clip posted on the website.

Despite her concerns, Pelosi admitted the Games end up messing with her schedule because she is drawn to watch — sometimes live; there is a nine-hour time difference between Washington, D.C., and Sochi.

“Here is my thing about the Olympics,” she said. “It really, it really destroys my schedule because I watch it all the time into the night. I am watching it when it is happening instead of waiting until the next day.”

History will prove Russia is doing it right. The Bible confirms it.

She is the Tower of Babel.

I’ll take “ancient history” over the futuristic nightmare which Nacy offers as the alternative.

Please, the words “sex” and “Pelosi” should never
be in the same sentence.

Eiiiiiiiiiii!

Since the law that she opposes bars homosexual recruiting of minors,

we can now say definitively that

Pelosi favors homosexual recruiting of minors.

They never criticize other aspects, the most important ones, of The Evil Empire

But they sure get the homosexual pandering in there

There is a Hell, and Our Lord Jesus Christ is the only way out. Pelousy seems to be following another way.

Let us all pray for her repentance and conversion.

Well, a condemnation from this *itch is an endorsement in my eyes.

I grew up in the heat of the Cold War, when homosexual acts, abortion and swearing in public were all illegal.

Listening devices, hidden cameras and squads of law enforcement officers used for political means were all tools of a communist, authoritarion Soviet Union.

To me, the world is upside down.

I live in Superman's "Bizzaro World".

What actually sounds like ancient history is the 30’s, 50’s and 70’s craptastic rewarmed soviet policies being urged in Versailles on the Potomac by Obama, Pelosi and their ilk. Even their propaganda posters are retreads of what was original decades ago. Putin is the one who has repudiated socialist failures of the past and turned away from them.

Has Nancy actually read Russian laws? She should cut them some slack. After all, maybe they passed them to find out what was in them.

“Here is my thing about the Olympics,” she said. “It really, it really destroys my schedule because I watch it all the time into the night. I am watching it when it is happening instead of waiting until the next day.”

Seems like she should be reading bills to see what's in them and trying to help the people of America by dissuading her fellow Democrats from destroying our country instead of watching the games in the small hours of the morning.

Ancient?

You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

She has a somewhat parochial view of what “the whole world” consists of.

Russia? I thought she was talking about Islam! Now there’s ancient history. Has anyone told Pelosi what they do to homosexuals in those countries?

As it says clearly and plainly in Romans, Chapter 1, verse 32:

and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.

Those who approve of all the things listed in the verses 18-31 above, who approve of all these things, in which homosexuality is clearly defined, will be punished just like the ones who practice such sins. She approves of homosexuals, thus she will see the same punishment of homosexuals. So, good ole Nancy, who claims to be "religious" is doomed for her unrepentant sin. Bible makes that clear.

They seem quite emboldened to slam Russia for it’s stance on gays, but not a peep about the way gays are treated in in Islamic countries.
