"On Monday, the Russian Interior Ministry confirmed what other Russian officials have been saying for weeks: Openly gay people attending the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics, including athletes, will be arrested under the country's draconian new anti-gay law. That law, you might recall, prohibits "homosexual propaganda" and is designed to discourage any kind of support for gay rights or even gay people.

The International Olympic Committee's response to gay people? We mean it: Stay in the closet."

Absolutely disgusting. I won't be viewing the Olympics this time around, and I'll be letting their sponsors know why I'll be avoiding their products. (Not that it's exactly a hardship to pass on McDonald's most days.)

... this makes me ponder how they will deal with our openly gay Secretary of State ... I mean they have diplomatic immunity but still <.<

:( Whenever someone makes a step forward with this somewhere another one makes a leap back.
