"Leviticus 20:13 states,'If a man also lie with mankind as he lieth with a woman, they shall surely put him to death,'" Raintree began. "I brought the first stone, Mr. Webb, in case that your Bible talk isn't just a smoke screen for personal prejudices."

Seems to me all these Bible Thumpers like to quote scripture but few are actually willing to do what scripture says. Could it be due to the fact that they know they aren't without sin?

"The very existence of the lawsuit offends my religious sentiment," the actor tweeted, according to RIA Novosti.

I can send you some stones just in case you really want to follow scripture.

Okhlobystin doesn't realize just how much he has dissed himself by referring to himself as having merely "religious sentiment".

The progress of this case will depend upon which court. Petrograd, and it might win at that level. Moskva, not a chance.

The gay rights issue in Russia serves more ends than at first meet the eye. Their anti propaganda laws in effect ban the freedom of the LGBT people. So easy to say somebody is breaking those laws when they are simply standing up for themselves. It in effect makes it illegal to be a pro gay teacher, to distribute gay information of any kind, including leaflets, banners or express a personal opinion. They claim a person's rights are not breached as they can, in certain circumstances, do this, but only one person at a time. And who there is going to endanger themselves by solitary protest when there is such encouraged anti-gay sentiment within the public now. Groups have organized which claim to target pedophiles but in fact entrap and brutalize LGBT or their sympathizers, then post the ordeals on you-tube. Still the police say there is not enough evidence. Many are happy with allowing this sadistic streak in the society because a, it doesn't affect them, b, it panders to religious extremists, and c, quite importantly, it focuses attention on an internal 'enemy' so people can vent their frustrations with their lives and Country on them and not on the Government.
