The Voice of Russia (VOR) is the Russian Federation’s state-owned international propaganda machine designed to improve Russia’s image around the world. On Friday, the VOR published an article defending President Vladimir Putin‘s war on gay people by quoting an American hate group leader as an “expert” on homosexuality. The VOR report, which focuses on the anti-gay laws and the upcoming 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, also states homosexuality is “a matter of choice and human will,” which every major, credible medical association deems false.

The Voice of Russia article, “Russia not homophobic, it’s homorealistic – expert,” states that the propaganda radio network interviewed the infamous Bryan Fischer, a notorious spokesperson for the American Family Association. The Southern Poverty Law Center, which identifies, monitors, and tracks over a thousand hate groups, lists the American Family Association on its page of active anti-gay hate groups.

“VOR also spoke with Bryan Fischer, head of the American Family Association, who has a different view on the situation,” the Voice of Russia reports:

“Russia is not being homophobic, it’s homorealistic – the Russian government is trying to take the issue into consideration and establish public policy to contribute to public health, as this lifestyle is not be promoted, endorsed or granted special legal protection”, the expert said, warning of high health risks linked to this lifestyle.

He cites the Center for Disease Control that has monitored the HIV epidemic since 1987 and determined that 61% of HIV-positive males had sexual contacts with other males.

“Homosexual behavior is just as risky as drug abuse,” Fischer said.

” I think the Russian government is right to be concerned with propaganda on teenagers who are at the age of struggling through sexual identity issue and we should help to channel these urges in productive behavior. Heterosexuality is God’s design. Policies that encourage young people to think this are good ideas.”

Though same-sex marriages are becoming common all across the world, it doesn’t mean that this idea is popular and everybody supports it, Fischer said.

“Homosexual behavior damages the body and soul. We love homosexuals enough to tell them the truth.”

As for Fry’s contentious comparisons, the expert found paralleles between race, which is immutable, and homosexuality, which is a matter of choice and human will, invalid.

Bryan Fischer and the American Family Association advocate for homosexuality to be criminalized, and says gay people “are Nazis.” Fischer is an AIDS denialist, believes allowing children to be raised by same-sex couples is child abuse and endorses the kidnapping of those children.

Last month, Fischer warned of a “concerted effort” to “remove Christians” from the U.S. military and swap them with “hyper-masculine homosexuals,” saying the “main threat to religious liberty is homosexual agenda.”

In May, Fischer claimed that “homosexuality in the end is going to be responsible for the collapse of the Western economy.”

Putin’s propaganda machine is in full force defending his controversial anti-gay laws. Recently, the head of RTR, his state-owned news network, said the hearts of gay people are “unsuitable” for life.

The blood thirsty, non-human, anti-gay, parasitic Nazis of the world bond together in their thirst for blood. Their so called "love" is the poisonous cancer that damages the body and soul and is completely devoid of all decent humanity. A poisonous cancer that has led the the murder of an innocent teenage boy just because he is gay. THEY ARE PURE EVIL and they WILL all pay for their crimes against humanity. There WILL be a reckoning.

Birds of a feather….

How did Fischer get to them before any REAL Doctors, REAL studies, or REAL facts? Why on earth would they believe he is an expert in anything? Is anyone in Russia listening to our side or any common sense before listening to a know nothing religious zealot?

It's called "propaganda." They're not interested in facts — they have their script, and they only talk to those who support it.

I am all for freedom of speech, and Mr. Fischer has a right to say anything he wants so long as he does not falsely shout fire in a crowded theater. It is a shame, though, that such people exist. If anything, the Fischers of this world prove that God does not exist. If He did, he would not suffer the Fischers of this world to live. And for all the feigned compassion of Christians both here and in Russia, their behavior betrays abject denial of the very things their prophet preached.

Bryan Fischer has made his bed, and now its time he sleeps in it. Bryan merely dreams of a gay genocide in America, but with Russia he has an active partner and a chance to actually make it happen. When the international war crimes trial begins against Putins genocidal regime, I hope Bryan Fischer is named as a co-conspirator and that he gets his well deserved dirt nap.

HIV-Negative AIDS: Is it CFIDS or AIDS?

Allied NATO Government is hiding millions of infectious NON HIV AIDS cases (like mine) under the "Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)" ICD-code.

- Dr. Lorraine Day was on Riley's THE POWER HOUR (9/12): "…HIV-Negative AIDS cases falsely reported and treated as CFS cases may be one of the biggest cover-ups we have seen."

- In 1992 "…Newsweek made an even more shocking announcement: that CFS researcher Dr. Paul Cheney had in his practice 20 CFS patients who had the same immune system deficiencies as the NON-HIV AIDS cases revealed at the Amsterdam conference."

Will CFIDS or AIDS ever make any progress unless we acknowledge these horrific facts?

My case goes up through the NIH, CDC, White House, WHO, to the UN. I testified federally in Washington-DC, and am published 16 times on 4 continents (including BEST GAY NEWS, PFLAG, & FUSE MAGAZINE).

E.g., w ww.ukprogressive.co.uk/the-aids-like-disease-seldom-mentioned/article20891.htm l

Or simply google "NON HIV AIDS"
