I dont think that means what you think it means.

It's always the Alliance. When have you last seen the headlines about the Horde oppressing LGBT rights?

Interesting logic. Anti-gay activists don't benefit financially from hating gays, therefore their opponents have to benefit financially. And, q.e.d., they are the equivalent of slaveowners, anti-suffragettes and jim crow-supporters. :shock:

The House of Lords has voted through the UK's gay marriage bill. All it's waiting for now is some debate on amendments and the Queen's signature.

(For some reason this news was buried in the "Politics" section of BBC News, I had to dig for it to confirm what I'd heard.)

Royal assent has been granted. Same-sex marriage will be legal in the UK.

An imperfect piece of legislation but I will take it.

“Would you like a World Cup where naked people are running around displaying their homosexuality? The answer to that is quite obvious,” he said.

“The Olympics and World Cup are not a stage for various views... not for Nazis, not for any other ways of life. It should be about football and nothing else.”

The second quote you have here is actually sound. The first is enough for a facpalm.
The general idiocy of banining "pro-gay" propaganda is ... well.. staggering. It is either a non-event (you just make pro-gay information, or gay propaganda that isn't pro-gay, but just propaganda) - OR its huge, making any mention of facts about homosexuality illegal at the same time.

But.. its russia.. do we really expect sanity from the russian political system?

I would rather them show this in the pubs than the actual football world cup; at least when they are rolling around and moaning on the floor they probably aren't play acting.

People over here keep comparing the Russian law to Section 28, that banned the promotion of homosexuality in Britain during the 90s. It didn't criminalise anything, no one was ever prosecuted, but in practice, it still led to institutions banning people from even mentioning homosexuality, acknowledging it existed - or even talking about Section 28 itself. The worst of censorship was self-inflicted but still a direct consequence of the legislation.
