"But I am confident that Russian laws and reasonable citizens will be able to protect their children from a fierce attack of sodomites.”
Yeah, I'm confident as well, unfortunately.The whole Russkieland has been going to hell in a handcart for the last ten years,Having reached a level of Racism,Hatred,Xenophobia and intolerance That American conservatives can only dream about.And I live next door to these freaks.

"The US goal is that Russians stop having children"
They don't need to. You already have too few children.
7/17/2012 3:54:56 AM
"Oh no! Think of the children! We gotta protect them from this filth!" You hear this kind of stuff and then you realize that this is one reason why we can't have nice things.

"Russian religious activists have demanded Facebook be banned in the country"
Yeah, that will work well in a country of hackers.

"Russian religious activists have demanded Facebook be banned in the country over “gay propaganda” among minors"
I bet pounds to rubles that Vladimir Poo-tin (who loves to play political 'Musical Chairs'; that's not what Democracy is all about, Comrade! Why does the US limit it's leaders to just two terms, again...?!) has - like Barack Obama - relied on the internet for his political campaigns. And Obama is one of the biggest promoters of Net Neutrality out there.
...so good luck with that, Russian Orthodox fundies.

"Olga, wanna have some sex?" - "No, Ivan, Facebook now has homosexual icons..."

If you are all so worried about it then just HAVE MORE BABIES! We're not responsible, gay people aren't responsible. Straight Russian people start making love more! It's not that hard! Any Russian who is worried about this and isn't out procreating is a hypocrite.
7/17/2012 6:12:28 AM
We demand only one thing: Facebook should be blocked in the entire country because it openly popularizes homosexuality among minors
The first bastion of the bigot: censorship. If your idea can't survive the eternal scrutiny and competition of free speech then maybe your idea isn't worth shit. I, as an atheist social liberal do not fear people challenging my beliefs (or lack thereof).
The US goal is that Russians stop having children.
The US fundies hate homosexuals as much as you do. They too get their panties in a twist when they see ads for gay people or, worse yet, a gay couple.

Do they really think that Putin cares about anything other than power? He isn't going to waste his time over this.
7/17/2012 6:30:16 AM
Ah, yes, the same old "if they're tolerant of homosexuality then they're aggressively trying to force everyone to become gay" argument. Can't give an inch, because those filthy gays will take a mile. Homophobes are the same the world over.

It was letting in Friedman economics and virulent racism against citizens of the former Soviet republics that decimated Russia, not letting a couple of people who'd probably not have had children anyway live together as a couple. RT is the most yellow-journalism newswork I've ever seen outside of Fox, and if Mr. Roslyakovsky is so threatened by an icon, I wonder if he saw that video of Yevgenii Belyaev performing Kalinka with the Red Army Choir and it made him...uncomfortable.

The 'fierce attack of the sodomites' consists of such aggressive behaviour as applying for the right to a stage a protest march.
The permit was withdrawn and the organisers fined for "... the discrepancy between the previously agreed format for the event - a rally - and the statements from the organizers in the media about the intention to hold a gay pride parade."
BTW, check out English-Language Pravda. It's a neverending fount of Fundy insanity.
7/17/2012 6:42:38 AM
Clearly, Facebook status icons are a conspiracy against Russia.
7/17/2012 6:46:12 AM
Ahh, existence of gay people! I shall turn gay because they're so hot..... Wait, I meant evil!!! Evil I say!! I swear it!!!
7/17/2012 7:06:44 AM
Sounds like the only thing stopping this man from having sex with other men is his fear of his imaginary god(s). He must think all heterosexual men are actually gay like he is.

In Soviet Russia, Facebook networks YOU.
7/17/2012 7:49:19 AM
"We demand only one thing: Facebook should be blocked in the entire country because it openly popularizes homosexuality"
Your argument is invalid.
7/17/2012 8:26:16 AM
Uh huh, because if you don't start acting like the Nazis your people hated, and still hate to this day, every single person in Russia will magically turn into a flaming queen and stop reproducing. Riiight, wait right there, will you? I need to have a word with Nurse Ratchet...
7/17/2012 8:48:46 AM
Yeah, banning sex has always worked.
7/17/2012 8:55:08 AM
Just as it is written in the bible:
God really hated Sodom for the gays and the buttsex.
...or a long list of reasons except anything about that.
7/17/2012 8:58:50 AM
Russian fundies. This maybe a first. Also there are groups on Facebook that agree with your stance while others are for gay rights. It does not popularise it
7/17/2012 9:45:43 AM
Well, looks like you've exposed it. Yes, Facebook was created and became widely popular in America so that years later, gay marriage icons could be added and stop Russians from having babies. Darn, you're too smart for us. Guess we better shut it down. Someone let Zuckerberg know, 'kay?
