The Moscow News reports about a new survey:
Negative sentiment towards homosexuality has grown over the last six years, according to the poll, which was conducted over the weekend. A total of 88 percent support the government’s bid to ban propaganda of homosexuality among children, a figure that has grown by two percent over the last year, ever since the proposals for the ban were introduced. A total of 42 percent said they believed homosexuality should be a punishable crime. In 2007, that figure was only 19 percent.
Meanwhile, the Russian Parliament approves a bill that bans “homosexual propaganda” to minors.
To me, it’s surrealistic that people can hate love between consenting adults so much only because the lovers have the same sex.
