Moscow - Orthodox activists will be seeking a ban on homosexual "propaganda" in Moscow.
“Homosexuality and its propaganda are grave sins. We will be seeking
the closure of gay clubs in Moscow and a general ban on same-sex
‘love,'” the Orthodox public movement Narodny Sobor told
Interfax-Religion on Monday.
Narodny Sobor believes Moscow parliamentarians could follow the
example of their colleagues in St. Petersburg and other cities, where
the propaganda of homosexuality among minors has already been banned.
A law envisioning administrative liability for the propaganda of
homosexuality and pedophilia among minors became effective in St.
Petersburg on March 17, 2012.
Legislation banning the propaganda of homosexuality has been passed
in some regions of Russia, specifically, in the Ryazan, Arkhangelsk,
Kostroma, and Novosibirsk regions.
