Russia to ban same-sex foreign couples from adopting children under new law
Daily Mail ^ | 3 June 2013 | Becky Evans

Vladimir Putin will ban foreign homosexual couples from adopting Russian children, the government has confirmed. An amendment restricting foreign adoptions to 'traditional' families will be submitted to parliament in its autumn session by the government, Alexei Levchenko, a spokesman for Deputy Prime Minister Olga Golodets, said on Saturday. The ban underscores a growing rift between Russia and the West over gay rights. Vladimir Putin will ban foreign same-sex couples from adopting Russian children Putin said in April that a French law allowing same-sex marriage went against traditional Russian values and signalled Moscow would take steps to ensure gay couples from abroad did not adopt Russian orphans. Russian legislation sets several requirements for adoptive parents from abroad such as sufficient income and a clean criminal record. But it does not mention sexual orientation or address the issue of same-sex couples. More...

Homosexuality, punished with jail terms in the Soviet Union, was decriminalised in Russia in 1993, but prejudice runs deep. A poll by the independent Levada Center found that 38 per cent of Russians believe gay people need medical treatment and another 13 per cent said they should face prosecution. A March poll found that 85 per cent opposed same-sex marriage. Officers detain gay right activists during a protest in Moscow. A study found 38 per cent of Russians believe gay people need medical treatment.

What does it say that the formerly godless Communist Soviet Union is turning out to be a lot more morally Christian than we are in the US?

I know this much : If American Christian families have young minor children, they are wise to set something(s)up NOW to absolutely assure that if something were to take the life of both parents, the children will IMMEDIATELY be put in to the care of family members or Christian brethren who have Biblical convictions.

It is dangerous to the children now, anywhere in the USA, for children to get put in to the "Foster" system(s), or to be kept in any state child-services care programs.

Foster programs and other care systems are harvesting grounds for sodomites these days.

The US is eager to show it’s enlightenment by sacrificing children.

"Archbishop of Canterbury warns Putin has frequently championed socially conservative values"

So much for the Church of England. They might as well turn it into a bathhouse.

Yeah I’ve been noticing that for some time too now. Even their news agencies are reporting things that the MSM over here has blacked out according to their Chosen One’s wishes.

a good start, but it won’t affect lesbians, they’ll just have their own with artificial insemination.

Over here in the U.S. gay politicians with ties to NAMBLA would sponsor a bill giving the homos the right to adopt children and they would receive huge donations from GLAAD and Pfizer (who manufactures Preparation H). Even Putin gets what happens behind closed doors with children and homos.

It is really a sorry situation when a former (I think) KGB thug shows more moral backbone than most allegedly “civilized” countries.

Putin is far from optimal, but he gets my respect more than Obama ever will.

Good for Russia. Children deserve as much stability as possible in their formative years.

Living during the cold war and Reagan as the first president I voted for, this is a weird time. I actually had a thought to move to Russia and learn the language and culture.

NEVER FORGET: To liberals, “diversity”, “tolerance”, and “multiculturalism” mean nothing more than the destruction of barriers to the implementation of the New Social Order.

There’s a communist document out there somewhere in the interwebs, where there are 100 or so points that must be accomplished to destroy America. One of them is the normalization of homosexuality.

So, the communists know that normalization of homosexuality is one step on the road to destroying a country, this is why they are so against it.
