Antigay Russian Politician's Church Attacked With Molotov Cocktails
Christian Post ^ | 8/20/13 | Michael Gryboski

Posted on 08/20/2013 8:03:45 PM PDT by marshmallow

A Russian politician whose legislative efforts have led to recently passed antigay legislation had his church fire-bombed by unknown assailants.

According to the Russia & India Report, two masked attackers threw Molotov cocktails at The Church of Holy Peter the Metropolitan Bishop of Moscow on Sunday evening. The Muscovite church is where Vitaly Milonov, St Petersburg municipal deputy, volunteers as an altar server.

On Twitter, Milonov blamed "scum" for the attack, which inflicted minor damage on the church, and vowed to "find them and destroy them."

“On the website White House Petitions, one petition has called for putting Milonov and Mizulina on a “visa ban list.”

As of Tuesday the visa ban list petition has a little over 8,700 names, more than 90,000 less than it needs to have by next Sunday.”

Hahahahaha

Sounds like the Russian queers are really heating up the rhetoric.

Between Queers and Rag heads, we are doomed (said with a light heart and perpetual optimism ... G_d is still in control). LOL!

You have to admit that a part about “destroy them” doesn’t sound Christian.

I think he means, see them receive justice in court. I doubt he’s donning a skull T-shirt, grabbing an M16, and becoming the Punisher. Then again... it is Russia.

It is not if I’m siding with queers or suspected “Left Front” but I think Russian church is too much active politically lately.

Finishing with communism is good but it seems like they want to replace it with inquisition and crusades.

When you have to make you case with violence, your case is doomed to the ash can of history.

In my mind homosexuality is the willful act of termninating your contribution to the gen pool—a self-imposed Darwin Award.

IMO, Milonov looks a lot like Michael Moore.

Jesus said to sell your cloak & buy a sword. WHY are there always wussies who pretend to be conservatives or Christians, who are "offended" by another conservative voicing a strong opinion? Have you ever noticed that liberals & lefties & homos/lesbians & muzzlims can say anything they want and they will NEVER be criticized or condemned by other lefties. Yet conservatives will instantly incur the wrath of faux conservatives trying to show how politically correct & sensitive they are.
BULLS__T!

In the example above, I sincerely hope & PRAY that Milonov does find & destroy the perps who did this. And I PRAY that America would return to strongly held Christian values like Milonov & Russia (incredible) are now endorsing.

Go Russia! Go Putin! (And FUBO!)

So, you do really think inquisition was a good idea.

Will you celebrate if Russian zealots are going to nuke America for being queer and secular one day?

"Finishing with communism is good but it seems like they want to replace it with inquisition and crusades."

Why leftist, anti-Christian, scum, propaganda terminology then?

When someone uses the loaded exaggerations of the fascist media to describe standing up for what's right they have the same agenda as the fascist media whether they admit it or not.

Yes, Fry has flew to St.Pete to buzz Milonov’s office over his anti-gay propaganda bill but I still think it is not a priest’s business to be both a member of a city consil and a federal lawmaker. What about a separation between a church and a state?

Traditional Russia did not have a separation between Church & State. You are applying a principle of American Federalism, to those to whom it does not apply.

Every nation sets up its own rules. That is the essential attribute of sovereignty & the Law of Nations. (In Russia the suppression of the Church under Communism has now ended.)

After the privations imposed upon people of Faith, during the long Communist nightmare in Russia, I am not really sure that 2 years is excessive for trying to disrupt a religious service. But in any event, it is a Russian matter. As I would not want Russians telling us how to handle criminal justice in America, I do not want to engage in telling Russians how to handle criminal justice in Russia.
