Russian City Forbids Sexual Info Aimed at Minors; Orthodox Church Heads Want This Law for Nation

The Life Site News website reports today (March 13, 2012) that officials of the Russian Orthodox Church are hailing a new law signed recently by St. Petersburg governor Georgy Poltavchenko, which prohibits homosexualist propaganda targeting minors, and asking that it be extended to the whole country.

"The law passed in St. Petersburg will help protect children from information manipulators by minorities promoting sodomy," said Dimitri Pershin, a Russian Orthodox priest.

He added, "The persistence of sexual minorities and their intentions to rally near children's establishments indicates that this regional law is highly needed and should be urgently given federal status."

St. Petersburg -- Russia's second largest city (after Moscow) -- now fines individuals up to $170 and companies up to $17,000 for "public actions aimed at promoting sodomy, lesbianism, bisexuality, and transgenderism among minors."
