Full title: Russia Signs New Gay Adoption Law
Same-Sex Couples From Countries Where Marriage Legal Not Allowed to Adopt
Russia banned adoptions by single people from countries where same-sex marriage is legal on Thursday, bringing the new measure into law in the middle of a Winter Olympics already steeped in controversy over Russian antigay policies.
Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev signed the decree, which was posted on the Russian government's official website on Thursday. The decree reiterates a ban on adoptions by same-sex couples who are in unions "recognized as marriages and registered in accordance with the...

What was the vote count in the DUMA?
Loos like WSJ doesn’t let you read the full article — I got a referrel from Google, but here is a full article in the UK Telegraph, same topic:
Russia bans adoptions from countries that allow gay marriage
Decree aimed at ‘protecting children’s psyche’ from the ‘undesirable effects’ of exposure to unconventional sexual relationships
British citizens could be barred from adopting Russian children under a decree outlawing adoptions from countries with gay marriage signed by Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.
The decree, which is dated February 10 but was posted on the Russian government’s website on Thursday, is officially intended to “help improve the procedure for transferring children without parental care to families of Russian and foreign citizens, and to protect the rights and interests of these children.”
The amendments to the Russian adoption law that were signed by Mr Medvedev include a bar on adoptions by “those in a same-sex union recognized as a marriage and registered an accordance with the law of states in which such marriage is allowed, and also citizens of such states who are not married.”
The new wording of the law suggests that married heterosexual couples from countries that allow gay marriage will not be affected by the changes, though Russian media reported the law as a blanket ban. “
The question is who is paying “conservatives” to sound like silly hysterical liberals?
What is antigay about protecting children?
Smart. Very smart decision. Nip it in the bud. Many orphanages are closing in America thanks to the Rainbow Mafia demands. Of course if an Obama gets elected in Russia, he’ll just ignore the law. You know...just to be on th e”right side of history”!
Good for Russia.
Expect the screeching from the demonic Left to be deafening.
The homosexual agenda is CENTERED around children since its roots is in pederasty.
I wouldn't be surprised if that's what he wants to do, I wouldn't vote for him, but by 2016 voting could be suspended by king obama anyway.
At least one nation is sane.
‘The question is who is paying conservatives to sound like silly hysterical liberals? “
Do you think homosexual “couples” should adopt young children so they can indoctrinate them early?
The Russians have it right! We used to, but no more.
I would. Most of America has proven it cant be trusted with the responsibility of freedom. Sound harsh? Perhaps. But If we are going to end up with a dictator one way ot the other...and we are pretty much there now...might as well have one we at least share some common ground with.
The Russians are doing the Morals that the US Just won’t do.
As America continues its descent into deviancy and madness, it’s looking like Russia is becoming the last, lone outpost of sanity.
Probably they have some of the morals and dare I say it ‘principles” that many Americans cast aside so freely.
Putin is correct. It might also be sensible to keep native Russians in Russia, if the nation is to rebuild and not depopulate, just to have the native population replaced by those whacky minorities.
Next time I’ll use the ‘rhetoric’ tag.
Best to You and Yours....
Legal craftsmanship that survived translation....
We’re supposed to be liberal, and believe that there is no difference between homosexual couplings and traditional married couples. And thus, there is supposedly no effect on children raised in homosexual arrangements.
I hear that the son of vociferous lesbian Rosie O’Donnell wants to go to The Citadel, and wants to join the military. Rosie is sad.
I bet Rosie and her ilk will be very sad, when their children turn out to be straight, not gay.
Like Chief Justice Roberts?
Post of the morning!
Waiting for Mitt Romney to weigh in on the unfairness of the new law toward same sex couples “in a loving relationship”...... /S
Good for them! Russia is striving for righteousness, at least on these issues, while the US is slouching toward Gomorrah.
Ouch! That one’s gonna leave a mark!
More like giving Scotty the order for Warp 9 and screaming for moaR! power.
Sounds about right.
Russia our sacred homeland,
Russia our beloved country.
A mighty will, great glory
These are your heritage for all time!
Be glorious, our free Motherland,
Age-old union of fraternal peoples,
Ancestor-given wisdom of the people!
Be glorious, our country! We are proud of you!
From the southern seas to the polar lands
Spread are our forests and fields.
You are unique in the world, one of a kind
This native land protected by God!
Wide spaces for dreams and for living
Are opened for us by the coming years
Our loyalty to the Motherland gives us strength.
Thus it was, thus it is and thus it always will be!
Where can I learn to speak Russian?
My wife had a co-worker who adopted a boy from Russia. He turned out to have severe emotional disabilities and even violent tendencies. Not sure the prospective parents are told all they need to be told in some cases.
The truly "demonic" left does not necessarily screech--more often simply whispers a corrupting message into the ears of the susceptible. The screechers are more likely to be the useful idiots, who think it is the function of Government to tear everyone who is capable of rising, down to the most base level.
Incidentally, my current feature at my Conservative resource center is on Variations On Demonic Theme,, which discusses how the same methodology employed to mislead Eve in Genesis, has been applied in virtually all Socialist & Communist attacks on what is morally or economically right.
If it was not for those who quietly insinuate an absurd interpretation of what is "fair," we would never even have the oxymoron of "same sex marriage."
When morality came back to the surface in Russia, it sure came back with a vengeance. It had been smoldering underground for seven decades. So don’t lose heart! Keep the faith! : )
He couldn’t do any more damage than Obama is doing.
Even more, it is important to look at the fact that both nature and nurture (behavioral examples) can be pushed down generations, and not just genetics. Children have been shown to learn behaviors (binge drinking, drug abuse, anger, violence) from the treatment they get from a parent or significant role model, even when the person is an adoptive or a foster parent.
On the bright side, a person can be helped or encouraged to break the cycle.
What’s to say that children can’t learn sexual behaviors from a parental figure as well?
I think the one fact that people forget about Rosie O’Donnell is that she’s also a conspiracy nut as well.

You answered your own question...
“Even more, it is important to look at the fact that both nature and nurture (behavioral examples) can be pushed down generations, and not just genetics.”
Russia already had a series of Obamas. Lenin, Stalin, Brezhnev, etc.
I would never have thought that Russia was morally superior to the USA. I guess if you live long enough you’ll see everything.
Give me an example of silly and hysterical, please.
It's better than an orphanage. However, at least in an orphanage, being exposed to homosexual behavior would be regarded as an abuse. In a gay household? Not so sure.
There I am at a disadvantage. I have never watched Beck on TV, heard him on the radio, nor read him. (A hearing disability can do a lot of a girl.) Conceding that he may be a huge and on-the-nose relevant example -— could you give me another one?
