Over 100Organizations Worldwide Support Russia’s Anti-Gay Law
To counter the massive LGBT activism after news broke that Russia would enforce its "homosexual propaganda" law, an army of organizations worldwide are lauding Russia.
Among those, there are six U.S. organizations, including World Congress of Families, the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute, Mission: America, GrasstopsUSA, Population Research Institute, and His Servants, a Christian organization.
The coalition is backing Russia because it thinks the law, which makes it illegal to demonstrate or to display any type of LGBT-related information in front of minors, "protects innocence and moral formation of children by prohibiting propaganda of 'non-traditional sexual relationships' among them," according to a statement.
Larry Jacobs, managing director of the World Congress of Families, maintains the law is protects the health of children.
"All the law does is to prohibit advocacy aimed at involving minors in a lifestyle that would imperil their physical and moral health," Jacobs said in a press release.
"Even the U.S. Centers for Disease Control has shown that sexually transmitted diseases, drug use and suicide rates are significantly higher among what it discreetly calls a 'sexual minority.' CDC data also demonstrates that there is much greater health risks among teenagers who practice homosexuality than those who do not engage in homosexual behavior."
