In fact, even individual nations in Europe are splitting apart at a fairly high rate. Checkoslovakia, Yugoslavia, Denmar, have all split, and most nations have separatist movements, some of which are violent

  


Yes, I too remember those dark and dreadful days when the Republic of Denmar split from the Grand Duchy of K....

Most of sexual abuse victims are girls; and most of the rapists of these girls are men, even worse, abusers are relatives, including parents, by this fact we can conclude heterosexuality should be banned (?)

How do you distinguish between a gai man and a hetero man who looks effeminate and dresses like a hipster? Same question regarding women. It seems like some of your street vigilantes, encouraged by the new law, need a bit more coaching before they go out and beat people to a bloody pulp.

  

I was simply showing how the kremlins choice to not enforce the law doesn't mean the law is bad.. I said nothing about how people look or dress.

Olympic athletes & visitors are not Russian citizens & as such temporary guests of Russia. Is it not correct that one should respect the the laws of a country one visits? Although this is a sensitive subject, it has become an ultra- sensitive subject lately. All people used to get along fine no matter their preferred partner orientation. What changed it all? When the only requirement is a mature attitude. We are all human & everyone can get along when there is respect on all sides.

homosexuals from other countries who think it is okay to flaunt their sexuality in front of everyone and have no respect for law.

By suspending this law or even needing to say this publicly shows that the Russian government and Kremlin know this law is wrong, backward and flies in the face of international human rights standards.

  

That isn't what this shows at all. This is just to make people happy so they'll still come to the olympics instead of boycotting it... In this instance, enforcing the law of the land here at the olympics would scare off and upset homosexuals from other countries who think it is okay to flaunt their sexuality in front of everyone and have no respect for law.

i do not think those people should be arrested unless they are pushing their agenda on others at the olympics

Nobody argues that Asia is not for Asians or that Africa is for Africans. Why then do anti-whites argue that White countries are NOT for White people?
What we have is: White countries flooded by non-whites.Whites are told be TOLERANT.Whites are forced to integrate.With assimilation we see the extinction of the White race.
Its about White genocide.

...The Bible says homosexuality is wrong. Who should I trust, the Bible or Obama? Who's probably right on this issue?

  


The bible also says it's okay to own women as property, to have concubines, to be a polygamist, and the best of them all: when a virgin is raped, she must marry the man who raped her. The rapist must pay the father of the girl for compensation.

Be real, the bible was written by dodgy old men. Yes, good, moral, ethical stories can be found in the bible. But the bible is flawed.

Homosexuality is not wrong only the physical manifestation of it is , which can be injurious to health.

Shouldn't we also have a law banning the sexualization of children full stop? Is it ok to advertise mini skirts and makeup for kids as long as no one mentions homosexuality

Putin is one of the few leaders left who is not caving in to the satanic full court press of societal demoralization.

The Bible says homosexuality is wrong. Who should I trust, the Bible or Obama? Who's probably right on this issue?

The "free world" understandably rejoice with this decision of Russian authorities. Adult men and women, sportsmen and visitors, will feel free to teach Russian children the joys of homosexual intercourse.
