We have been following the threats to arrest gay athletes in Russia under the new anti-homosexual laws of the Putin regime — a threat repeated recently by a minister despite assurances from the International Olympic Committee. One official however suggested it may be suspended for the games. Now there are reports The Putin governments alliance with the Russian Orthodox Church has expressed itself in the abusive prosecution of the band Pussy Riot as well as the crackdown on gays and lesbians. Now these reports detail videotapes of gay men being forced to drink urine and abused as a “cure” of their homosexuality.
The abuse is being organized by a nationalist party headed by a man previously sentenced for hate crimes. The videos discussed in the latest article were shot in the industrial town of Kamensk-Uralsky.
Maksim Martsinkevich, an ultranationalist, has pushed supporters to use this “cure” and told a website associated with Putin’s security services that “I hope that these broken lives – and they really do have broken lives – will be an example to the generation growing up that they shouldn’t behave like that.”
That’s right, having urine poured on your head and being beaten by thugs can cure a sexual orientation.
Martsinkevich is obviously a disturbed and dangerous individual, but not nearly as disturbed and dangerous as the Putin government encouraging such attacks with these laws. The “gay propaganda” law is written in absurdly broad language to allow the government carte blanche in arresting gays and lesbians.
The law passed 436-0 in the Russian Duma. The law prohibits “propaganda of homosexuality to minors” to “protect children from information harmful to their health and development.” Even suggesting the equality of gay and traditional relationships can be viewed as violating the ban on promoting “non-traditional sexual relationships.”
Such discriminatory laws obviously emboldened monsters like Martsinkevich and his followers. The result is a major rollback of human rights in Russia — part of an overall attack on civil liberties by Putin.

and if you continue reading math you will be on 18, then with 19 ; 1, in mind you will be in 20, on to 21.
with the cleaver in mind, read it what did peter really say, the second time through, was his name changed.
there are certain things that clergy could not change to match the other changes that occured through out time.
there have been you knicks through out time.
so continue posting if you wish, the discussion is getting interesting. jesus did have faith in the father. the gospel says it has everything, and to pray for your enemies, also.
It is your choice to read it. I will continue posting.
Max-1 why do you wrest the scriptures to your own destruction? You do err greatly. Let us look at the word eunuch shall we?
EU’NUCH, n. [Gr. a bed, and to keep.] A male of the human species castrated.(noah webster 1828 dictionary)
Those verses are not talking about gays at all: Why did you make up a lie?
Furthermore Jesus quotes Genesis:
4 And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female,
5 And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?
6 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
Jesus quoted from Genesis above so as you can see God made them male and female and the man shall cleave to his wife and shall be one flesh: There is nothing about man and man and woman and woman becoming one flesh: this is unnatural.
Are you really my brother Max-1? Have you been born again by believing the Gospel? The Gospel is how Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures and that he was buried and that he rose to life again the third day according to the scriptures. Anyone that believes has eternal life for free.
Jesus is quite irrelevant to this discussion. Or to put it in a way any of you might understand, I asked him and he said “Don’t ask me”.
I understand the law to be against directing propaganda at minors, nothing more. I know nothing else about this, however, just thought I’d pass along what RT pointed out.
Don’t pretend this is some “far away event” in some “far away country”. Some “ex-gay therapies” in the US were proven to have caused suicides. And as for abuse, it was only fifteen years ago that Matthew Shepard was tortured and murdered, and his killers given a slap on the wrist.
Teabaggers and various religious bigots would still be murdering people and doing “reparative therapy” torture IF they could get away with it.
I thought they did that kind of stuff, anyway??
Then they throw them in prison.., with other, men???
Lastly, RS Helms,
Jesus did speak about gays.
11 But he said unto them, All men cannot receive this saying, save they to whom it is given.
12 For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother’s womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven’s sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it.
Please, let us receive it. Even Jesus asked as much. Was Jesus wrong?
As someone who you would call a sinner for being gay, myself, is it my sexuality that you attribute this “sin” to, or is it me? Is it my sin that compels you to castigate me for? Or is it your informed being that stoning your brother for what you determine to be his sins is what Jesus asks of you?
Christian to Christian… did Jesus ask of us to judge our brothers?
Christian to Christian… If we’re busy defining who’s sin’s are greater than others, what was Jesus for?
Peace, and have a good day.
Really what the Russians do is not what bothers me the most. It is what gay activists do with it … against Americans, and Christian churches in the country… for over a couple decades is has been priority one of the gay activists to force the christian to accept the sin of homosexuality. nonetheless, the uninformed who try to pass themselves off as Theological experts in the activists community, will never– ever admit that it is not the view of Christianity to hate the person, just the sin. and that I will continue to do.
Mr. Smith, I’m out of a job if that happens.
