Why St. Petersburg First Government-Approved Pride Parade Stunk of Eggs

Well so much for that: In Russia, St. Petersburg’s first attempt at a state-sanctioned gay pride parade ended today after just 40 minutes when the group of 10 marchers were assaulted by an estimated 100 Orthodox Christian anti-gay demonstrators, who threw eggs and slurs their way.

      More fascism from Kiril and his “Orthodox Youth” gang. How many Orthodox skinheads were arrested.

      Well, at least now, millions of gay russians don’t have to preserve any artifacts or sites of these cultists; if they are going to force their religion on others no point preserving any of it. Respect has to work both ways and they have shown none – they don’t even believe in freedom of religion. Christianists can be as bad as Islamists in violating other people’s freedom of religion.
