    Russias attitude on Homosexuality shows that it is still largely an unsophisticated primitive peasant state

    I’m stronger than Putin ! Or is this fact really something to be proud of—- since Putin is so WEAK !

  5. Forever shamed! Orthodox priests celebrate the liturgy of hate: Basil and John Chrysostom, “doctors” of the church, were virulent homophobes and anti-semites. Skinheads and Orthodox priests joined as allies, attacking peaceful
    demonstrators- who’d have thought such a shameful thing could happen? Has the Orthodox church become a terrorist organization?

    Russia is absolutely becoming a fascist nation, with a marked increase in extreme nationalism and attacks on minority groups.

    Many of us predicted exactly this when the laws against LGBT Russians were passed.

    We have been accurately predicting what is now happening in Russia, and it’s vitally important that people are aware of what is continuing to happen there, whether it’s against LGBT right now, or against any minority groups by a growing extremist nationalism.

      Or, as I’ve been thinking for months now, Russia is on the verge of breaking apart. The authorities are running scared as a result. They know what’s coming, and are desperately trying to find a unifying scapegoat to prevent it.

      I don’t think it will work though. Get ready for Muscovy, Novgorod, Dagestan etc. applying for UN membership after a long a bloody civil war. Tough times ahead for all.
