Conservative Spokesman Praises Putin On Gays
Something is quite odd when conservatives praise Communist leaders because they agree with them on social issues.
World Congress of Families spokesman Don Feder is once again defending Russian President Vladimir Putin’s crackdown on LGBT people. In a column posted at GrasstopsUSA yesterday, Feder defends Russia’s ban on “gay propaganda,” saying it merely prevents “two homosexuals” from standing “outside an elementary school with a banner that says: ‘Hey kids, sodomy is swell – and you should try it!’”
Yes, if only we could stop all those signs outside elementary schools urging kids to try sodomy. And never mind that Russian journalists have been fined for reporting on gays. But maybe that’s what American conservatives want here.
And Feder seems to think gays should not have rights because there’s no “sodomy clause” in our founding documents.
When did engaging in non-traditional sexual relations become a human right? Where is the sodomy clause in the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution or U.N. Universal Declaration of Human Rights?
