Russian Lawmakers Approve Bill Banning LGBTQ ‘Propaganda’


The law also prohibits ‘the propaganda of pedophilia and sex change’

Russian lawmakers unanimously approved a bill banning all forms of LGBTQ “propaganda” in a final reading Thursday, as Moscow presses ahead with its conservative drive at home while its troops fight in Ukraine.

Activists said the new legislation ramps up the crackdown on “non-traditional” sexual relationships in Russia, affecting everything from books and films to social media posts. They have vowed to keep fighting for the rights of minorities.

President Vladimir Putin has sought to promote his country as the antithesis of Western liberal values, pushing an increasingly conservative agenda to rally his core constituency amid heightened tension with the world’s top democracies.

Moscow already has a law against “propaganda” directed at minors regarding LGBTQ relationships. The new bill would broaden that rule to adults.

The legislation passed by the lower house of parliament, the State Duma, on Thursday bars all mention of what authorities deem “gay propaganda” in media, cinema, books and advertisements.

It also prohibits “the propaganda of pedophilia and sex change.”

“Any propaganda of non-traditional relationships will have consequences,” the speaker of the Duma, Vyacheslav Volodin, said on social media.

The bill “will protect our children and the future of our country from the darkness spread by the US and European states,” he added. It introduces fines of up to $165,400 for people who ignore the new ban.

The legislation still needs to be backed by the upper house and Putin before becoming law, but those steps are seen as a formality. Source

It is clear that the judgment of God is more severe upon the U.S. than upon Russia!

    Russia went through 70 years of government enforced atheism, yet a remnant of religious faith continued in secret. “He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.” In this dear country of ours, faith was banished from public education by judges usurping the proper duty of the legislature. A generation has grown up never hearing a prayer or Bible reading in the classroom. We should not be surprised “There is no fear of God in their view of the world.” Without respect for the Ten Commandments, how could natural law and the foundations of English common law a long endure? Our country has descended into the “darkness of this world,” a world of substance abuse, porn, human trafficking, infanticide, idol worship and so forth. Remember Paul spread the Word in much worse conditions. Can rejoice that our savior has overcome the world?
    Would Tim consider doing a video of “Victory in Jesus” or maybe “Because He Lives”?

  2. Well now see, Russia isn’t all bad. Sometimes they make more sense than our own govt; but either way it’s still by the devil & for the devil.
    Wonder how the Russkies would treat the globalist, Jewish queer “prophet” Noah Yuvall 8 ball Hatari or whatever his name is?
