Russia and the IOC agree: Athletes and spectators shouldn't be openly gay at the Olympics

There are 24 comments on the www.slate.com story from Aug 15, 2013, titled Russia and the IOC agree: Athletes and spectators shouldn't be openly gay at the Olympics. In it, www.slate.com reports that:

On Monday, the Russian Interior Ministry confirmed what other Russian officials have been saying for weeks: Openly gay people attending the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics, including athletes, will be arrested under the country’s draconian new anti-gay law. That law, you might recall, prohibits “homosexual propaganda” and is designed to discourage any kind of support for gay rights or even gay people.

The International Olympic Committee’s response to gay people? We mean it: Stay in the closet.

It had to do specifically with actions by the Russian (then Soviet) government, just as this does.
