Wingnuts: Russian Authoritarians Are ‘Christian Saviors’
Ur Conservative Paul Weyrich and others in Heritage were also big promoters of Eastern Orthodoxy and Traditionalist Catholic exclusionary campaigns - from muslims to gays.
First we had Bradlee Dean saying that Muslims who put gay people to death are “more moral than even the American Christians.” Now we have Larry Jacobs of the World Congress of Families — no families with gay people allowed, of course — claiming that Russia not only a model for what we should do in America but are he “Christian saviors” of the world for their anti-gay laws.
Jacobs: The Russians might be the Christian saviors to the world; at the UN they really are the ones standing up for these traditional values of family and faith.
Wiles: Well look the city government of Moscow passed a 100 year ban on gay parades.
Jacobs: And the homosexual propaganda—the law in the Russian Duma it passed on first reading, it would ban propaganda to minors, preventing them from corrupting children. What a great idea and the rest of Europe is going the other way, legalizing LGBT propaganda.
Wiles, of course, is one of those conspiracy nuts who thinks the government is going to round up Christians and put them in concentration camps if they say anything anti-gay
