In a move to distance itself from the social liberalism clearly eroding the western world, Russia has said declared it will be a cold day in hell when they legalize gay “marriage.”
According to Reuters, President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday that legal marriages within the country would only occur between one man and one woman as long as he is in the Kremlin and that mothers and fathers would not be subverted by “parent number 1” and “parent number 2”.
“As far as ‘parent number 1’ and ‘parent number 2’ goes, I’ve already spoken publicly about this and I’ll repeat it again: as long as I’m president this will not happen. There will be dad and mum,” Putin said.
He made the comments as he met a state commission to discuss changes to Russia’s constitution.
The commission was set up last month after Putin announced sweeping changes to Russia’s political system that are widely seen as being designed to help him extend his grip on power after his scheduled departure from office in 2024.
Other proposals have since been put forward and Putin was asked to comment on a proposal to add a line in the constitution defining marriage as a union between a man and a woman.
“We need only to think in what phrases and where to do this,” he replied.
Reuters added that Putin has spent much of his two-decade career in office aligning with the Russian Orthodox Church and separating the nation from its global peers who have already embraced homosexuality and gender fluidity.
Homosexual relations were decriminalized in Russia in 1993, and the nation declassified it as a mental illness in 1999.
Under an unofficial “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy, gay people are also allowed to serve in the Russian military.
Clearly other nations have seen the example set by America and Europe of the tidal wave of debauchery that inevitably follows state approval of the destruction of marriage, and they don’t want any part in it. Wise move!
