At least they have the guts to stand up against "gay rights" rallies. I spent 5 years at a liberal university where I had to put up with such propaganda. I personally have several good friends who have homosexual attractions to other men. However, just because I love them and they are my friends doesn't mean I will ever approve of their decisions. I'm obviously against gay marriage, but not necessarily against remodeling our civil "marriage" system to be civil unions. As has been said elsewhere, while we don't agree with homosexual relationships, the issue with "marriage" in the civil society, is that if they need access to their partner in the hospital, or their partner wishes them to have the rights of a family member, why should we stop them? Our disagreement is over their sexual relationship, not over civil rights.
It is right to stand against the promotion of sexual immorality. What isn't right is doing so with violence. I'm not a big fan of unbridled free speech, so I don't have a problem with Russia, Georgia or other nations suppressing such rallies. My problem is with the Orthodox who react with violence against the gay community.
