This is wise, considering how dangerous that lifestyle is. Kids need to be protected from such propaganda.

Russia will soon join countries such as Iran that can execute those who were unfortunate enough to have been born to be homosexual. The fact that they have to ban it tells us just how threatened they are by the acknowledgement of gay people.

Having traveled in both urban and rural Russia and seen how young Russians stare at foreigners, particularly those of African descent, this policy will only pour fuel on the fire. Theirs is a history teeming with xenophobia. Hate crimes are common today and are ignored by the security authorities. How sad for the older generations, who lived through so much misery - for nothing - to witness state indoctrination in yet another generation.

Thankfully here we do just the opposite....banning the teaching of religion in the classroom. Thank God for the Constitution for protecting a free and open society.
