Culture War Waged at Olympics

• Russia comes under heavy attack by standing up for Christianity and Russia’s children

By Pete Papaherakles

While the Sochi Winter Olympics are in full swing in Russia, President Vladimir Putin finds himself in an even bigger contest. He is battling the relentless attack of cultural communists seeking to destroy what the good nationalists who now rule Russia are trying to construct in their own nation.

As a sign of protest against Putin, President Barack Obama, French President Francois Hollande, British Prime Minister David Cameron and German President Joachim Gauck are not attending the Games. Why? Because Russia supports traditional family values and opposes the promotion of sex perversion and anti-Christian activists.


In response, the United States has sent several perverts to represent the country. In addition, a number of multinational corporations, including General Motors, AT&T and Google, have taken a pro-homosexual stance.

Russian chess master Garry Kasparov, a bitter rival of Putin, said Sochi is to Putin what Berlin in 1936 was to Hitler, meaning that Putin—the new Hitler—is using the Olympics for his personal glory.

Yet Putin is not the one who sought this battle. He merely passed a law last year banning homosexual propaganda directed particularly at children. The law was supported by the Russian courts and 85% of the Russian people. Russia’s highest court, the Constitutional Court, concluded that Russia’s Constitution obliged the state to protect motherhood, childhood and family, and specifically to “take measures to protect children from information, propaganda and campaigns that can harm their health and moral and spiritual development.”

Putin himself said Russia isn’t “homophobic.” He believes Europeans are dying out because “gay marriages don’t produce any children.” He has banned all “gatherings, rallies, demonstrations, marches, and pickets” during the months before, during, and after the Winter Olympics, bringing about the present attacks on him by the pro pervert leadership dominating the West.

The Olympic Charter states: “The practice of sport is a human right. Every individual must have the possibility of practicing sport, without discrimination of any kind and in the Olympic spirit, which requires mutual understanding with a spirit of friendship, solidarity and fair play.”

“Sochi is not the place to debate Russian anti-gay laws,” said Putin. Homosexuals at Sochi Olympics can feel “safe and free,” he said, as long as they “leave children in peace, please.”

Russian Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko said in August that athletes and spectators attending the games, which last until Feb. 23, will face arrest, fines and deportation if they violate the law.

The contrast between Putin’s Russia and the West when it comes to family values and the homosexual agenda is stunning. Unfortunately, the West is being systematically indoctrinated with pro-homosexual attitudes where homosexuals are perceived as victims whose rights are being violated, rather than being perceived as offenders of family values or even as predators of children.

A resolution in the European Union was signed on February 4 that, among other things, advocates “respect for the gay parade” and the “creation of special youth and education programs”—in other words propaganda targeting underage children on homosexuality.

A perfect example of this pro-homosexual attitude is newly elected New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, who is married to a black “ex-lesbian” and whose state legalized gay marriage in 2013. De Blasio announced recently that he will not be attending New York’s famous St. Patrick’s Day Parade in March because it’s not homosexual enough.
