Moscow mayor repeats claims of 'satanic' gay Pride marches -

The mayor of Moscow has repeated his claims that gay Pride marches are "satanic".

Yuri Luzhkov attacked gay-themed events in 2007 as "satanic" in 2007 and banned gay rights campaigners from holding such an event. Photo

According to the Interfax news agency, he said last month: "For several years, Moscow has experience[d] unprecedented pressure to conduct a gay pride parade, which cannot be called anything but a Satanic act. Photo

"We have prevented such a parade and we will not allow it in the future. Everyone needs to accept that as an axiom."

Luzhkov added: "It's high time that we stop propagating nonsense discussions about human rights, and bring to bear on them the full force and justice of the law." Read complete article -
