Conservative Russians Give Moral Lesson to Facebook’s Homosexual Propaganda
By Julio Severo
In celebration of the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling favoring homosexual “marriage” last week, Facebook launched an app called “Let’s Celebrate Pride,” which allowed users to overlay an image of the homosexual rainbow over their profile picture.
Facebook expected many millions of its users to celebrate, but from its 1.44 billion users, just 26 million did — less than 2 per cent. The fact is, the absolute majority of Facebook users did not want to get involved in the Facebook’s homosexual propaganda.
Compounding the failure, there was an international reaction to this propaganda.
The strongest reaction came from conservative Russians who overlaid an image of the colors of their country’s flag — white, blue and red — over their profile picture.
Russian users have also countered the homosexual #LoveWins hashtag with #pridetobestraight and #pridetoberussian.
In recent years, Russia has had a strong stance in defense of traditional family values. In June 2013, Russia passed the federal law for the “Purpose of Protecting Children from Information Advocating for a Denial of Traditional Family Values,” or what is commonly referred to as the law against gay propaganda. It bans homosexual groups and individuals from giving children information about homosexuality. Violators face hefty fines and arrest. The government has also banned LGBT pride events and public rallies. And it regularly jails insolent demonstrators.
The Russian Orthodox Church has been particularly outspoken on the issue. Vsevolod Chaplin, a spokesperson for the church, called the Supreme Court’s ruling last week “godless and sinful.”
“People who like ‘American-style democracy’ and try to reconcile it with traditional values need to have a long, hard think after this decision,” he said. In part, he is right. Yet, the original American democracy was not made for homosexuality and its ideological activism.
John Adams (1735-1826), second U.S. president, wisely said, “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” America under Adams had a largely Protestant and moral population. Today, America has a government and big companies (Facebook, Google, Apple, Microsoft, etc.) that totally hate Protestantism and morality and totally love immorality and homosexuality.
Some Americans answered Facebook’s homosexual propaganda by overlaying an image of the American flag over their profile picture.
