Gay Parades Banned in Moscow for 100 Years
BBC ^ | 8/17/12

Posted on 08/17/2012 6:22:21 AM PDT by marshmallow

Moscow's top court has upheld a ban on gay pride marches in the Russian capital for the next 100 years.

Earlier Russia's best-known gay rights campaigner, Nikolay Alexeyev, had gone to court hoping to overturn the city council's ban on gay parades.

He had asked for the right to stage such parades for the next 100 years.

He also opposes St Petersburg's ban on spreading "homosexual propaganda". The European Court of Human Rights has told Russia to pay him damages.

On Friday he said he would go back to the European Court in Strasbourg to push for a recognition that Moscow's ban on gay pride marches - past, present and future - was unjust.

Sexual behavior in public is illegal here. It is a shame it is not enforced.

Russia is so weird.

I mean, on the one hand, they embrace moral causes such as not promoting homosexuality.

On the other hand, they cannot seem to master being a Republic.... Putin seems to be trying to recreate the Tsarist Russian years (though thankfully he's not returning to Communism).

If they continue to embrace morality, Russia will be favored by God and succeed. But how, if they go back to a Tsarist model? Russia is a confusing mess.

But, their women are hot.

It does not matter what form of government they have. Putin could declare himself Tsar of all the Russias, and if God favors them, they will be prosperous. Saul, David and Solomon were absolute rulers, too.......

they get it....the behavior they are preventing(or trying to prevent...the jury is still out on that 100 year outcome), really does tears down a nation...

...unfortunately their methods and many of the other things they get, is pretty much the SOS that Hitler and Stalin advocated...the outcome being, the end of liberty.

how does a free society, put the degenerate genie back in the bottle without a major, possibly armed, conflict

I think the answer may turn out to be: "It doesn't".

The fundamental problem is that "good government" simply does not exist. Nor do "good people". All forms of government are bad ... they have either to much power or not enough, and no truly effective way of policing themselves. All government suffers from the same problem: both the governors and the governed are corrupt sinners.

It is a matter of survival. Their birthrates are disastrously low as it is. They can't afford for more Russian children to be recruited into the "gay movement".

Now this is the way to handle the militant mentally ill. They demanded the right to have their Pervert Parades for 100 years, and the government bans them for 100 years.

I expect there to be calls from the gays for the IOC to dump Sochi for the 2014 Winter Games, and for countries to boycott.

Why would you want to be gay in Russia anyway?

They have some of the most beautiful women on earth.

The Soviet’s push for moral decay in the West is now biting them on the ass.

Banning nudity and adult sexual acts in public is legal in the Republic.

The homo parades are full of public nudity and sex. They should not be given permits based on their abuse of the law and violaters should be arrested. They can not control themselves.

The point is, you can ban nudity and sexual acts without banning speech/expression because of its political viewpoint.

We don’t seem to be able to do both with the sodomites. When they are out of the closet, parading their sex thing down the road, they are indecent and insane. They are sexually aggressive and violent.

I would offer this: it is not that they cannot control themselves. It is because they do not control themselves. And why? Why should they? They have jettisoned any reason or faith in God in favour of the whims of the moment.

Gratification comes in many forms - sex, power, fame, money. And in being a rebel against 'the Man', especially if it brings no significant repercussions.

While they are young. But they generally don't age very gracefully.
