News of LGBT and allied people of faith, and stories that show the ways in which people of faith interact with the LGBT community

Will supporters of Russian LGBT rights 'calm down'?

"Gay people are facing violence in Russia, hate crimes are on the rise, gays are being tortured, crimes are not being investigated, and victims of crimes do not go to the police because of the fear of being exposed. We are glad that people can learn about it now. This law portrays gays as criminals, because, supposedly, children need protection from everything gay. When people realize that this law creates grounds for violence, they will stop supporting these laws, because no one supports violence."
