“I took out the ring and showed it to Putin, and he put it on and he goes, ‘I can kill someone with this ring.' I put my hand out and he put it in his pocket, and three KGB guys got around him and walked out.
—New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft • Accusing Russian President Vladimir Putin of stealing one of his Super Bowl rings back in 2005, during a meeting in St. Petersburg. The ring, worth in excess of $25,000, was by Kraft’s telling simply being shown off to Putin when he pocketed it, and Kraft wanted it back. But he also claims he then received a call from the Bush administration White House on the matter, saying “It would really be in the best interest of US-Soviet relations if you meant to give the ring as a present.” source
Russia passed a bill that forbids the circulation of any information on homosexuality to children.
Simply excellent. Now Russia’s kids are not able to receive a positive point of view of homosexuals. Why? Is there not enough homophobes in this world? Why won’t the parliaments in the whole world spend their time trying to solve REAL problems like starvation or bad working conditions and they leave people who love same-sex people alone at once.
Let us marry, let us adopt, and this world will be much, much better, because it’ll be based in love, equality and indiscrimination.
