  1. as it should be moved immediately! laws can be changed…people’s sexuality should not!

  2. Typical of the Christian brigade… telling lies to support their arguments. Polygamy is NOT legal in Russia and marriage is banned for linearly related people (siblings, half-siblings, etc.) – a simple google confirms this.

  3. Just fűck off already!

    1. My post refers to that idiot’s deleted comment.

    Polygamy or bigamy?

    Either way two things heterosexuals do so well.

    Signed.

    The Russians do not deserve the Winter Olympic nor the economy that goes with it.

    The Blood of the innocent in on Putins hand… too many children killing themselves because of Putin who clearly thinks this is acceptable.

    It’s not and never will be!

  6. Signed.

    Persecution of natural minorities is never OK – these laws are of the most insideous kind, as they make it illegal even to protest their existance, vile.

    Signed

    And every fiber of my body is hoping that we can gather enough support from every corner of the globe.

    Great news Mike Freer. great news that it will be raised at the G20.

    Everyone one letter from each of us to the government, or a magazine, or a newspaper or television station means they cannot ignore the human rights and equality issue in Russia.

  8. LGBT Russian activists say they DON’T want a boycott or ban.
    Still I guess you all know better…

      Oh well as long as they’re OK, nobody else matters then!

    You cannot stage an Olympics where part of the population are being persecuted. What are they thinking about!

  10. Vancouver sounds good to me

    I don’t see how we can send athletes to Russia when they are in danger of being arrested and deported just because of their sexuality.
