And keeping around the semi-frozen corpse of Lennin is some how non-satanic.

I preferred the Russians when they were godless communists.

Being gay can be satanic depending on what stuff you are into. But should always be sinful if done correctly! But really, he should deal with the Russian Mafia before worring about boys kissing boys!

True Andrew, except for the small fact that Moscow's gay community most likely ISN'T funnelling huge quantities of rubles (or perhaps even dollars) into the Mayor's back pocket.

Wait, I thought we were talking about Moscow, Idaho?

Any Russian leader should be well-acquainted with that concept...

Not surprising. My brother was telling me that when they tried to organize a pride parade in Moscow a few years ago, the city's biggest argument against it was that "the streets are too busy" (which they are, but I still don't buy it). Instead, the deacons and priests of the Russian Orthodox church turned out onto the streets in their robes, waving their icons around.

Makes me glad I got the hell out of there in time.
