Eugene Delgaudio: Soviet Union Put Raising Children As More Important Than Promoting Homosexuality
"The Soviet Union opened its borders, embraced capitalism and signed many new treaties in declaring the Cold War over. But one of the top legislative leaders says it will not surrender today's children and risk tomorrow's survival of a Soviet society to the Homosexual Lobby," says Eugene Delgaudio President of Public Advocate.
The Liberal news site "Buzzfeed" reports:
Three months before Russia's parliament unanimously passed a federal law banning the propaganda of "non-traditional relationships" - that is, same-sex ones - the bill's sponsor went on the country's most respected interview show to explain her reasoning.
"Analyzing all the circumstances, and the particularity of territorial Russia and her survival, I came to the conclusion that if today we want to resolve the demographic crisis, we need to, excuse me, tighten the belt on certain moral values and information, so that giving birth and raising children become fully valued," lawmaker Yelena Mizulina told Vladimir Posner, Russia's Charlie Rose.
Mizulina heads the Duma's committee for family, women, and children and has become the stern face of Russia's campaign against gays. But she would never call it that. Russia's new laws - banning same-sex foreign couples from adopting Russian children in addition to banning LGBT advocacy - are part of the country's very search for survival, according to her.
Buzzfeed goes on to make the case that the Soviets are scapegoating the homosexuals for political purposes in their domestic and worldwide propaganda efforts against the U.S. and the west.
