Went to my RT app this morning and came across this. Of course I love how other country's, like the US in particular, but also sundry European countries love telling Russia what they should do, or pretty much anyone for that matter. Russia is a secular country but at least they have some degree of law against homosexual propaganda and over 50% of Russians want to see homosexuality banned completely. The United States, always going on about the importance of democracy, hypocriticly as Putin once pointed out, cannot accept the fact that the democratic opinion of Russians is that homosexuality should be outlawed even. Of course I am not the biggest fan of democracy because what happens when the majority want an injustice? Nevertheless, it is nice to see something like this, even if it is far from putting down the sodomite agenda. And of course the left hates this sort of thing.
I am of the opinion that Russia should make laws against homosexual agenda and so forth, but out of necessity tolerate homosexual acts as long as they do not directly offend the body politic. At least for the present. Of course as the Patriarch points out that is the problem with sodomy--it corrupts the state. It is what happened to Sodom after all. But I think outlawing it completely would have to be done carefully to avoid agressive action from the West or riots. Of course since I am not a fan of democracy and the false idea of liberty, though I believe in true liberty, I would not be against the state using force, even violence, on homosexual protesters. But of course we know the United States and Co. tendency to cause wars and go to war in places that do not follow their agenda. Don't get me wrong I love my country and think the problem with modern Russia, Putin included, is that it is a secular state. I want to see a truly Christian state in Mother Russia again, not a somewhat decent secular state.http://rt.com/news/church-same-sex-unions-404/
