William Murray, the evangelist son of Madalyn Murray O’Hair, joins many of his fellow Christian right theocrats in publicly fellating Vladimir Putin for his moral fiber and rugged manliness. But mostly for the fact that Russia is turning into the kind of country they want to live in.
Why do President Obama and the Western media have such hatred for Russia? What is all the Russia bashing really about?
In Russia the clergy are allowed to enter the schools to give instruction in the Bible. Prayer is allowed in the public schools in Russia, as well. It is against the law to sell or give pornographic literature to anyone under the age of 18. Marriage in Russia is allowed only between one man and one woman.
Last year President Putin signed a law outlawing advertisements for abortion. In 2011 Russia passed a law requiring health warnings to women before getting an abortion, and now the Duma is considering outlawing abortions completely unless the mother is in immediate danger of death. (In the old Soviet Union, abortion was the primary means of birth control)…
In the Russian Army the chaplains are allowed to preach the Gospel and pray in the name of Jesus Christ. Homosexual behavior is not allowed in the Russian military and punishable by court martial. (The U.S. military just held its first officially approved drag queen contest at the Kadena Air Base.)
Why do Barack Obama and the liberal media hate Russia so much but have such love for nations that are anti-Christian and repressive such as Qatar and Saudi Arabia? Morally and spiritually, Russia today is the nation America was in the 1950s.
Maybe Scott Lively was right and American Christians are going to start emigrating to Russia because it’s turning into the theocratic paradise of their dreams. Any objections?
Oh, and he also threw this lie in there:
There is no complicated tax code in Russia; they have the kind of flat tax the Republicans have pushed in the U.S. for years. In Russia everyone pays the 13 percent income tax regardless of how much they earn. The year after this flat tax was instituted in 2001, the Russian economy took off like a rocket and tax revenues increased as well.
Nope, not so much. Here’s a chart of Russian GDP growth from 2000-2003. See if you can spot that economy “taking off like a rocket” in 2002.
Must have been a really small rocket.
