Putin Rejects ‘Gay Marriage’, Considers Amending Constitution to Protect Traditional Marriage

PRESIDENT VLADIMIR PUTIN said on Thursday Russia would not legalize gay marriage as long as he was in the Kremlin.

He made clear he would not allow the traditional notion of mother and father to be subverted by what he called “parent number 1” and “parent number 2”.

“As far as ‘parent number 1’ and ‘parent number 2’ goes, I’ve already spoken publicly about this and I’ll repeat it again: as long as I’m president this will not happen. There will be dad and mum,” Putin said.

During his two decades in power, Putin has closely aligned himself with the Orthodox Church and sought to distance Russia from liberal Western values, including attitudes toward homosexuality and gender fluidity.

He made the comments as he met a state commission to discuss changes to Russia’s constitution.

The commission was set up last month after Putin announced sweeping changes to Russia’s political system that are widely seen as being designed to help him extend his grip on power after his scheduled departure from office in 2024.

 Other proposals have since been put forward and Putin was asked to comment on a proposal to add a line in the constitution defining marriage as a union between a man and a woman. “We need only to think in what phrases and where to do this,” he replied.

Well done President Putin. The next step is to make homosexuality mandatory for those who endorse it. Make their families become extinct.

Maybe Putin is opposed to gay marriages for now, but how do you explain the virtual homosexual epidemic which was seen for the last 20 years in Russia?

“Maybe Putin is opposed to gay marriages for now, but how do you explain the virtual homosexual epidemic which was seen for the last 20 years in Russia?”

Two words: THE JEWS.

“Everything that these Jews touch is poisoned by them in one way or another. The whole movement in popular music which has replaced White music with Black music — which has promoted and popularized Black music among young Whites — has been orchestrated by Jews. The use of films to condition White Americans to accept racial mixing and interracial sex and homosexuality has been almost entirely a Jewish operation…”

This is good news, of course, but this comes from “Russia Insider” that is 100% pro-Putin. They never said a word about Putin’s subservient attitude towards the Jews. In June last year, he inaugurated a Holocaust memorial in Moscow.

In January 2017, Putin created Holocaust Remembrance Week. You can check all this on the Internet.

Putin pretends to be a nationalist, but he is not. He is a crypto-bolshevik. He has made it clear his admiration for Stalin and he has kept Lenin’s body in the Kremlin.

While I am not a supporter of Putin, this is one point on which we agree.

Putin is a pragmatist. For now, it serves his agenda to be for traditional family guy. If that doesn’t work next week, he’ll flip faster than a pancake on a griddle. Count on it.

I have said for a few years, now…the future is Russian.
