  1. Perhaps they could move there, lock, stock and barrel.

    1. Here’s a great idea. While they are there, withdraw all their passports. Then they can really support the Russian way of life.

      How the worm turns. 30 years ago these people wanted Russia wiped off the map and they blacklisted any American with the slightest perceived pro-Russian views. Putin is the same man who ran the KGB.

      They are obviously just self serving morons.

      1. Their home governments should revoke their passports mid-flight. Then they would all be in that most uncomfortable position of being stuck in the airport, unable to go outside or go back home.

        1. That would make a good film. Tom Hanks could play all the parts.

    Another bunch of crazy people if you ask me.

    They serve no purpose other than to discriminate but wait until someone does against them… oh my, will they play the victim!

    It’s a shame that these people chose to fill their lives with hate whilst declaring they’re best for children when what’s best for children is the last thing on their minds.

    It’s their own pettiness, bigotry and complete hatred of human life that’s at the centre here. They should be so ashamed.

  3. They can hold their annual conference in 2015 in Uganda; 2016 in Nigeria, 2017 in Saudi Arabia and 2018 in Iran. No shortage of ‘family friendly’ nations that look backwards.

    Where does this kind of reaction come from. How can you hold onto an outmoded view when we have so much research backing up change.

    Is it fear? Is it one upmanship? Why do people want to exclude others from their “club” Why is one god better than another.

    Please even within my own family I have issues like this. I have one hope for the world …to get rid of religion and face the issues in the world today, not tomorrow or in a better afterlife.

    Sad indeed.

    1. “Why is one god better than another”

      Because the best god is always MY god. Because MY god is made in MY image so how could it be inferior?

      There are just so many cr*p gods out there. But not MINE.

      Get it? If not, MY god will beat up your god.

      As Richard Dawkins says an atheist is not that different from a christian or a moslem. They don’t believe in thousands of gods, and an atheist agrees on all those thousands of gods they just add that extra one. The one the christian or the moslem believe in.

    2. They are allowed to express their hate in this way. Make no mistake, If they could get away with expressing hate against other minority groups (mainly ethnic) these people would be first in the queue.

      They seethe with bitterness, but can smile nicely when required..

  5. Perhaps some of these fools can be duped into making critical and/or offensive remarks against the Russian Orthodox Church, which is now also illegal. Then they can experience Russia’s idea of “law” for themselves.
    Holding an unofficial pride march would only have the alleged “people of goodwill” go and join in with the local fascists in getting violent.

  6. There is a very good Russian word to describe this kind of twattery. Alas, I don’t have my Russian keyboard on this machine, and the English version would get me a lifetime ban here.

    I wish them joy of their visit to Russia. They will discover plenty of like-minded folk.

    They are about as despicable a set of human beings as you could find. In fact I shame humanity by referring to them as human beings, they are animals. Many of the GOP are sociopaths, lacking any ability to show empathy with mankind. We see it in their behavior towards others all the time – and it has nothing to do with economic policy.

    Thankfully they are totally out of step with the vast majority of decent human beings in Europe and across the US. You have to have a very twisted mind to vote for this legislation, or endorse it. Don’t they realise they have no chance of winning any further elections whilst they have so many politicians who the public find utterly repugnant. If they think they can win elections with just the white religious right voting for them … jog on.

  8. J Edgar Hoover would be turning in his grave! ‘The Ruskies’ and ‘The Yanks’ in bed together? But it’s amazing how readily religious bigots will unite over an issue such as the denial of human rights to consenting adults.

    Quelle surprise!

    The majority of Americans believe LGBT people are equals and deserve equal rights. The evangelicals and the Catholics are going berserk over that realization which is why they are farming out their hate to other countries. Being gay used to be what they called a “wedge issue” here and it no longer is. So the money these groups used to bring in with their hate has dried up and they are looking for the next vein.

  11. That There Other David 2 Jul 2013, 1:18pm

    LOL. Well, if they hate the way the USA does things so much why don’t they just move to Russia!!??!

    How the pendulum swings eh?

      Let’s face it, not that many people care about religion any more, and far less even have any interest in politics. We want those we elect to create a prosperous society, with enough jobs for everybody, to take care of our physical and mental health and well-being, to protect our privacy and support us in times of need, and to provide laws which we agree to.

      They, both religions and politicians, HAVE to have wedge issues, groups to blame things on and vilify, otherwise they don’t get the attention they seek.and can’t divide us, to win elections, by motivating citizens with fear that if (a) gets something, somehow (b) has to lose something. We’re not the only wedge, economic ideology, abortion, womens’ rights, etc., at all there.

    This is yet another of those hate groups that the Home Office should consider banning from the UK. If Pam Geller can be banned so too can the World Congress of Families. Now that it has openly supported Putin in this, it’s made a ban that much more urgent.

    We should all contact Theresa May.

    1. Robert, you should also realise that the UK Christian Right group “Christian Concern” had representatives attending this outfit’s May 2013 seventh conference in Sydney and is listed as one of its sponsors…

      1. They are another hate group benefitting from non-tax-paying status. There are literally HUNDREDS of these ‘charitable’ religious bodies registered by The Charities Commission. Any christian or other ‘faith’ charity whose doctrine is anti-gay should have their charter revoked.
