'There Will Be Dad and Mum': Putin Rules out Russia Legalizing Gay Marriage

President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday Russia would not legalize gay marriage as long as he was in the Kremlin.

He made clear he would not allow the traditional notion of mother and father to be subverted by what he called "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.

During his two decades in power, Putin has closely aligned himself with the Orthodox Church and sought to distance Russia from liberal Western values, including attitudes toward homosexuality and gender fluidity.

He made the comments as he met a state commission to discuss changes to Russia's constitution.

1. This is why the Left wants war with Russia

They hate that Putin believes in God.

2. It's not the left that wants war with Russia.

It’s the neocons who have infiltrated the Democratic Party that want war with Russia. People on the ACTUAL left (Glenn Greenwald, Aaron Maté, Krystal Ball, among others) have been pushing back against the anti-Russia hysteria and warmongering.

3. I don't think anyone actually wants war with Russia.

The Russian hysteria was entirely designed and propagated as a measure against Trump and his alleged cozy relationship with Putin. Now unintended consequences are another thing entirely; which certainly could be, or become an issue because of the ridiculous Anti Russia stuff.

But of course, none of those pushing that will ever accept any responsibility for it either.

Means to an end and all that.

5. When I was over at DU, years ago, the left loved Putin and Russia. All that abruptly ended when he

took his anti-gay stance.

I used to have a great time pushing pro-Putin articles until that time.

4. Meanwhile "conservatives" in the US

pal around with drag queens (Charlie Kirk, TPUSA) and Trump hugs rainbow flags. Conservatives haven't conserved anything in this country.
