Reader’s Comment of the Day: Russia does not murder homosexuals unlike some other countries


In response to Andrew Cadman: I have seen the future and it is socially conservative Russia, Scaroth wrote:

While I largely concur with Dr Cadman, let’s be clear that to suggest Russia suffers from a strain of “virulent homophobia” is disingenuous claptrap.

Allegations of homophobia would be better aimed at those states that murder homosexuals: take Saudi Arabia or Uganda, for example. Homosexuality between consenting adults is entirely legal sexual activity in Russia; what is illegal is the promotion of homosexuality as normative behaviour to minors, something that just twelve years ago our own Prime Minister concurred with, on the evidence of his then vote in the House of Commons against the repeal of Section 28.

Given that we are born with the biological ability to reproduce, I would suggest that saying homosexuality is not normative is a truism. Furthermore, the combined promotion in the West of gay rights and feminism (in the sense of women being urged to prioritise their careers over motherhood) are likely driving down our own reproductive rates, hence the need to promote immigration for low wage employment.

Mr Putin, having grown up under Bolshevism, with its similar social – though not economic – agenda, probably understands this rather better than our own leaders do, and is accordingly intent on promoting Orthodox Christianity and the family as the basic building block of Russian society. Lest we forget, both were systematically undermined in Russia from the day Vladimir Lenin stepped off a sealed train in St Petersburg in 1917 up until the final collapse of the Soviet Union, Good on him. We in Britain would be well advised to take note.
