    Hi guys,
    Russia is about to criminalize gay people once again!
    Putin and Medvedev are about to approve this.
    Please read and add your votes.

    Will be interesting to see how/if Obama reacts. It would also show he had balls since it's Uganda was sitting duck.
    Orthodox Christianity would be the driving force if I had to guess.

    Okay, I signed it. My name will probably make its way to some list somewhere once the petition is presented to Russia.

    I just voted, some people just dont get that being gay is not more of a decision than being born in Russia.

    What the hell is Obama supposed to do? Russia is not some poor, third world country in Africa...

    Peh. This is probably just a Russian overreaction to too much Lady Ga Ga.

    On a serious note, Russians are retarded.

    And really, what would they expect a president to say from a country that has not given its own glbt population equal rights?

    Why is everyone acting so surprised? Russia has always been a backwards country.

    Russia unfortunately is a country full of social issues. Discrimination, hate crimes, negative sentiment towards minorities and various ethnic groups is rampant. While many people are open-minded, when it comes to homosexuality and their acceptance, I am doubtful that anything will come of this. At same time, I am hopeful that if enough people express their dissatisfaction with this law, it will influence the politicians of Russian government to change their mind.

    Are you always this rude and disrespectful? One person or actions of a political group does not represent the population as a whole.

    Yeah..when it comes to Russians they can be pretty narrow minded..I'm sure not every single person but majority would laugh at gays and their also sexist. I know it cause I come from one of the former Republics of Russia.

    because in a country where democracy is a dog and pony show, a pension is going to make a difference. The first thing is to convert the country to an actual democracy, then get them to care about human rights.

    There are plenty of people that would like to do the same in the US. This is a problem for all of us.

    What EVERY country should do is have a straight-people holocaust.

    After all, it's their fault we're here. We don't breed ourselves, ya know.
