Article: "The only real effect of the law is to split society and incite one group against another. Apparently Vladimir Putin and his team find it easier to stay afloat on a nasty, roiling sea of malice. While we choke on hatred for one another and see the enemy in every person who in some little way doesn’t look like us, we don’t notice how the political noose is slowly getting tighter around the neck of all of society. And when that noose is pulled tight, no one is going to be able to utter a peep — not gays, Orthodox Christians or even deputies.”(Journalist Daniil Rotshtein)

"The symptoms of fascist thinking are colored by environment and adapted to immediate circumstances. But always and everywhere they can be identified by their appeal to prejudice and by the desire to play upon the fears and vanities of different groups in order to gain power."
(Henry A. Wallace)

I'm certain that the law did one other thing.

It guaranteed a far larger majority vote FOR Marriage Equality in the English House of Commons. They didn't want to look even remotely like Russians.

Excellent point. Funny how some christian Americans now side with the Russians while they hated them for decades. I guess hatred for one group of people trumps hatred for another. A case of our enemy's enemy now suddenly becoming our friend.

The battle line can shift beneath your feet in any conflict. What matters is where you end up.

You fruit homosexuality is fundamentalist. Not to mention the word bigot being synonymous with zealot or fanatic.

The backlash would be beyond severe. It would be maniacal, and it would become a permanent part of Russian paranoia. Gay people would never be safe their again. Never.
