Putin: Gays should feel welcome in Russia, but must ‘leave children in peace’

Friday, January 17, 2014

SOCHI, Russia — Russian President Vladimir Putin sought Friday to reassure gay visitors to the Sochi Games that they are welcome in Russia, but added that they must “leave the children in peace.”

Responding to a question from an Olympics volunteer during a visit in the Black Sea resort city, Putin vowed that gays face no discrimination in Russia and could feel “at ease.” But he emphasized that because of a Russian law banning gay “propaganda” among minors, they cannot express their views on gay rights issues to anyone under age.

Putin appeared to lump homosexuality and pedophilia together. “We have no ban on nontraditional sexual relations. We have a ban on propaganda of homosexuality and pedophilia, I want to underline that, on propaganda among minors,” he said.

Putin and other politicians have defended the June propaganda law as a protection of child rights, but critics believe that the law discriminates against sexual minorities. The law specifically refers only to “propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations.”

Putin insisted the measure isn’t discriminatory.

“We aren’t banning anything, we aren’t rounding up anyone, we have no criminal punishment for such relations unlike many other countries,” he said. “One can feel relaxed and at ease, but please leave the children in peace.”

In the wake of the international outcry against the bill, Russian authorities have put limits on the right to protest during the Sochi games, which run Feb. 7-23.

A presidential decree initially banned all rallies in Sochi from Jan. 7 to March 21, but Putin later rescinded the ban to allow demonstrations at venues determined by the Interior Ministry.

    What??? What does being gay have to do with children

    • Zane Zirkle

      The evangelists from the USA tell other countries we molest and pick up kids and teach them to be gay. Scott Lively is the main one.

    • Teresa Watson

      oh good lord, that is the most preposterous thing I have ever heard. So we have preachers like Phil Robertson,

    • Sebastião Ribeiro

      he thinks every single gay is pedophile :/

    • Люцифер Пуристов Зла

      ironic enough most pedophiles are straight little-girl fiddlers

    • James Creason

      Don’t you know? ALL Gays are pedophiles!

    • Teresa Watson

      Well I have two gay sons, and they are definitely not pedophiles, I wish I could wring his neck for putting this statement out there.

    • Steven Gibson

      Zane Zirkle r u seriuos?

    • John Condron

      As is often the case with conservatives – everywhere – their excuse for these laws is to “protect children.”

    • Stephen Melott

      It’s that old line “THINK OF THE CHILDREN!” bull crap !

    • Kyle Maz

      Think of the children? They just want the children to grow up and be idiotic and brainwashed like them.

    • Toby Cox

      they think our mission in life is to revert children to homosexuality, like we would be able to do that. It’s also known as ignorance

    • Jokie X Wilson

      I think he revealed more than he intended. I bet he is reflecting on hos own childhood and doesn’t have the skills to work out what was done to him. This is all he knows and it was imprinted at a very young age, no doubt.

    • Alex Klebenow

      Well, as my partner James Creason said, [sarcastically] then his comment was removed and blocked by the Facebook police, Putin OBVIOUSLY believes in the conservative bigoted propaganda that all gays are pedophiles… FACEBOOK POLICE … DO NOT REMOVE THIS OR BLOCK ME… this is NOT the truth, nor is it what I believe, nor is it meant to be offensive or rude, it is a comment about how stupid people really are!!!

    • Mel Greene

      Nothing, but I’m assuming he wants them all so HE can fuck them.

  • Samantha Riley Fooce

    Duh…He’s such an overinflated idiot.

  • Javier Suarez

    yes, the children belong to the priests

  • Eric Moore

    You’re starting to crack, Putin…
    Someone get a bucket to hold all the toilet water!

  • Rosalie Brooks

    OMG, he is confusing pedophilia with gays…stupid

  • Antonio Canaan


  • Jessica Kent

    Why do close-minded idiots always assume that gays are pedophiles?! There are more straight ones than gay ones out there!!

    • Javier Suarez

      i would say 9 out of 10 pervs are straight…

    • Jody Stivers

      Per capita, heterosexual men molest kids at a higher rate than gay men do. The problem isn’t gay or straight – it’s MEN. But it’s not convenient to focus on that because men run the world.

    • Cory N Jamie Gilliam

      With Putin, it’s probably projection because sociopathic dictators always have dirty little secrets. They love absolute control which, if you ask any reputable psychologist, is what pedophilia is all about.

    • Hayden Frisco

      I just had to add this: it’s not just men that molest, rape or otherwise abuse, thank you. There are female offenders out there.

  • Stacey Emily

    Why the hell do people think we will “convert” kids. They are either born LGBTQ or not it has nothing to do with us. Geez wish people would get that thrpugh their think skulls.

    • Tim Murphy

      And even if being queer can be taught or is a choice, so what? I wish people would stop using the ‘we can’t help it’ argument, because it can just as easily be turned against us as for us. I tend to say: ‘I don’t care if it’s a choice. I don’t care if you’re uncomfortable. My life does not revolve around your ability to have an unquestioned state of things.’

    • Jessica Kent

      It’s not like we made a choice to be LGBTQ, we were born that way!

    • Kelly Madison Suarez

      They forget that we come from straight parents!!

    • Shannon Sha

      We were all once gay children surrounded by a multitude of straight “influence” on our sexuality. We “decided” to become gay, however, because of the rare gay person we say once or twice in our lifetimes. This is Putin’s reasoning. -_-

  • Patrick Billings

    What a fu$#in Idiot.

  • Jeff Chelsky

    Could this guy be any more ignorant?

  • Melissa Seidel

    What an idiot

  • Jose David Del Sol

    how can a person think about another person like that” child abuse comes first from parents and siblings not from gays” you stupid asshole” empty none sense President, don’t understand how a person that discriminate human differences had been elected as a President of a nation” very sad.

  • Georgie Ontario

    He should take his own advice and, for one instance, stop supporting his friends in Syria for gassing their children.

  • Samantha Rose

    This man makes me sick. His bigoted and condescending attitudes and views know no bounds.. -_-

  • Ivy Martin Blues

    Alas! Putin… Is crazy

  • Nathan Dominic Johnson

    Man! He’s dense

  • Fillipi Vieira

    You know that meteor that crashed somewhere in Russia and was all over the news? Well, it should’ve hit his house!

  • Melanie Howe

    Exactly! I agree Teresa Watson. Does he think we are contagious or something……????? He probably just doesn’t want them to be “influenced”. I mean we can’t have Russian children growing up to think it’s ok to be yourself. Fml

    • Shannon Sha

      Because being influenced on what our sexuality is definitely changes our sexuality. That’s why all that straight influence has made gay people straight…. errr umm. Yeah. Putin for the lose.

  • Perry G Aviance

    He lost he’s marbles…..

  • Jose Soto

    Can he be more ignorant? Wow!!!!

  • Geraldine Gorton

    Fuck him ignorant knob

  • Sandra Fictionnook

    oh, that’s right. All gays are also pedophiles. How silly of me. /sarcasm

    • Opal Koboi

      he doesnt want us to “turn” his russian breed-thats all.

  • Chris Armeli

    Lmao. Hes stupid

  • Prince Philippe

    What with children ????
    Gays and lesbian are not pedophiles !
    Putin, Asshole of the year !

  • Shane Spooner

    If you look up dickhead in the dictionary there’s a picture of him next to it

  • Paul Rivera

    Gay people are NOT pedophiles. Pedophiles are child molesters and they are all around you. How some one with that much power can be so dumb is beyond me.

    • Javier Suarez

      sacrifice the minority to retain power and redirect attention from real problems, it has been done before and is being done now

  • Brian Lance

    than u should change your laws,being gay has nothing to do with pedophilia like you think,its a huge wrong to think this.

  • Nicolás Borassi

    What a sad, sad person you are Putin.

  • Bobbie Jo Justice

    is he allowing catholic priests in then?

  • Michael Goodings


  • Rev. Janine Stock

    Boycott Sochi Olympics!!!!

  • Opal Koboi

    why?my plan was to go there and convince ALL of russias children to turn gay.bummer:-(((

  • Bruce Bennett

    facts and data show its heterosexuals that molest kids….

  • Priyadarshi Datta

    what!!!???what an idiot!!!people don’t make GLBT people! we were born that way! might molest your kid and make him/her gay!

  • Fourmen Alvin

    He’s an Idiot

  • Fourmen Alvin

    Don’t watch the games but support your team via social media. This is the most expensive games ever so if you don’t watch maybe Russia, Putin, Sponsors, and the Olympic commission will get the point.

  • James C. Jasion

    Now I understand Vlad!!! It’s all so CLEAR. You put that law into place so that you could assure that YOUR desire for children can’t ba acted upon. Well, I’ve got news for you. Just because the evidence points to the scenario that you yourself have been closeted since your early teens and remain in denial of YOUR hard-wired at conception sexual orientation and consequently have a stunted psycho-sexual maturity yourself resulting in your secret lust for underage boys, doesn’t mean that those of us who’ve worked out our coming out issues and despite the persecution by people like you have MATURED to gay MEN who are adults in our psyches, are the same as you. Vlad, you don’t fool anyone. You truly are PATHETIC. And by the way those SHIRTLESS photo ops of yours don’t make you like like a man; they make you look like the pusillanimous WORM that you are!

  • Aimee Babanto

    What’s this man talking about being gay is a disease???

  • Eileen Burns

    That seals the deal, I think the country should boycott those games.

  • Michaela Vlasáková

    WTF??? Being a gay is not a synonym for abusing children is my daily routine!!!

  • Toni G. Engle

    You fucking ferret…do you really think gays are coming to compete in the Olympics just so they can molest Russian children??? Someone needs to put this guy away for some serious mental therapy.

  • Richard Munns

    That Tosser should keep away from us not us away from children …, he’s probably doing it himself safely in his closet !

  • Franklin Wood

    So gays can come to Sochi and be themselves just not around children. Then after the Olympics Putin’s idiots can continue there human righta violations. Thanks for the welcome idiot.

  • Candice Bailey

    I think people like this feel this way and make these kind of statements because they are uneducated with anything to do with gay culture if they knew more about the gay community they would most likely have a better understanding of it.

  • Steven Ernest Plummer


  • Andrea Massari

    What does that mean? Wow. Misinformed.

  • Mary Frances O’Brien

    what an ass.

  • Megan Olson Martinez

    Ignorant ass! I think its a setup. Cancel the Olympics!

  • Bruce Bennett
  • Cal Miz

    Won’t be watching Sochi show. And won’t visit Russia. NO THANKS!. Don’t feel safe there…..m

  • Tim Murphy

    Memories of ‘stranger danger’ talks when I was a child. Even back then, I remember thinking: ‘It seems more likely it’s going to be someone you know, probably a family member.’ (Of course, try as some people did, no-one could convince me that family was this magic, unquestionable thing that you had to surrender your nerves and stomach lining to…if someone was a jerk and happened to share DNA, I did not hesitate to call them on being a jerk and choose not to associate with them…)

  • Robert Hadley

    who is going to protect the children from HIM?

  • John Fields

    …to be gay doesn’t mean automatically to be a pedophile Mr. Putin!!!!

  • Michael Higgins

    What a jerk. Maybe he should hook up with his American counterpart — Rick Santorum!

  • Mai Yag FellaGirlie

    Putin should feel welcome in America, but must leave farm animals at peace.

  • Joy Wesley

    Oh FFS – when will these people ever learn being gay means you like adults of the same sex – *adults* you ignorant twit, not children.

  • Maz Louw

    Stupid ass!

  • Opal Koboi

    well the most sexual abuse takes place in the own family-so how bout all straight people shouldnt be allowed to “approach” children???

  • Bob McIntyre

    Putin’s comments should be directed at the Russian Orthodox Church.

  • Robert Rose

    He is an ass

  • Richard Munns

    Putin likes bum sex too lol

  • Megan B Johnston

    Is he projecting his own pedophilia?

  • Raymundo Capetillo

    A shit is as a shit does. A man with that much power and yet the intelligence of a child. I SEE the connection now.

  • Jafar Hrmlani

    fuck you putin ?????????

  • Pup Equality McKeenan

    we do not target children you moron. priests and heterosexuals target children as sexual objects.

  • Andrew Harrington

    Fuck him

  • Mark Scourfield II

    I am sure Putin, and the Uganda President, would make a Lovely Couple, lmfao ;-)

  • Anna Kakhniashvili

    What a bloody idiot and a big ass….. heterosexuals molest kids, not gays… Putin needs to research more

  • Susan Nicol High

    Putin has done exactly what the Olympic Games try to avoid. He is using the games to further his own agenda. Well so can I. During the games I will not watch or buy products from sponsors. I will not buy anything with the label of Olympics on it. I may not have the political power he has, but I have the power of the American dollar. And not one of mine will go to that man.

  • Marylee Hicks

    Basic misunderstanding of the facts! Most pediphiles are married straight men!

  • Chris Graves

    Fuck You Putin!

  • Bonnie Berryhill McIntyre

    What an idiot!

  • Jason Tchaï

    Such a vile comment he has. What a backward individual.

  • Donald Fritsche

    How can someone so stupid lead a country? Oh wait! We had George W. Never mind!

  • Rick Boyd

    Leave children in peace, what the f..k is this idiot talking about.

  • Misty Wehrman

    So if because I’m a lesbian and that makes me a pedophile, then does that mean I shouldn’t allow heterosexual men around my daughters? People need to educate themselves for real. This guy is a complete moron!!

  • Ember Clay

    From a logical point I can see why they would want children to be adopted or raised by heterosexual couples or people for the sole purpose of reserving a majority of the traditional ways to bring up a child… But I don’t agree with this guy.. Also proven some children whether they be raised by a homosexual or heterosexual people sometimes end up being gay not because of their families but because of the environment and influence s their exposed too at a younger age and how they deem it right or wrong

  • Doug Arp

    Why do people assume that all gay people are child molesters? I just don’t get it. That’s what I think Putin means by “leave children in peace” Putin is completely out of touch!

  • Lindy Hayes

    What a failure as a human being and as a leader. It is so disappointing that people with no real intelligence become powerful and influence the masses.

  • John Xavier Anthony Ursabia

    He forbids competition! I see….

  • Yuki Tsukizaka

    Silly opinion, Putin…All athletes both gay and straight can create a great competition, give a wonderful brave and dream to children.

  • David William Humphreys

    Isn’t he getting a little mixed up between gays and paedophiles, ignorant man!

  • Cassandra Grindall


  • Cory Lawson

    The empirical research does not show that gay or bisexual men are any more likely than heterosexual men to molest children. This is not to argue that homosexual and bisexual men never molest children. But there is no scientific basis for asserting that they are more likely than heterosexual men to do so.

  • Cory Lawson
  • Paul Girard

    fucking cunt!!!!He cofusing pedophilia with homosexuality…he need a long long treatment into psychiatric hospital!!!!!!!!

  • Janell Elynn Smith

    Putin you’re confusing gays with PEDOPHILES! Get a dictionary!

  • Michael Brewer

    I, for one, will be absolutely boycotting anything to do with Russia and the Winter Olympics. Want nothing to do with his whitewashing of their crimes against humanity.

  • Darren Sanderson

    Nothing but a bigoted cunt. A relic.

  • Cherie Cotone


  • Stephen De Chellis

    Well, English is not his first language. I guess that could explain why he is confusing pedophilia with homosexuality?

  • Divineanimal Paolucci

    nobody wants to play with your stupid, ugly, boring kids anyway. raise em right or not, just keep the little snotnoses away from me.

  • Diane Mangrum-Kirse

    Gay does not mean pedophile you idiot.

  • Marian Earley

    What, the fucktard idiot, Putin is a dictator

  • Together – people of all faiths, humanists, agnostics and atheists

    do straight people get to annoy the children?

  • Rolando P. Cabiluna

    Putin is sooo confused between gays and pedophiles? is he that ignorant?

  • Jody Stivers

    Putin operates from the assumption that if a little kid sees a gay person, he or she will emulate homosexuality and become gay. That is NOT how it works! I knew I was gay years before I ever saw another gay person or even knew there was a word for how I felt! This guy’s a relic and he’s not doing his people any favors by acting like a backward moron. He’s marginalizing homosexuals and treating them like third-class citizens and criminals. That isn’t healthy leadership — that’s bigotry and bullying.

  • Wayne AllcornBannatyne

    One word…Chikatilo.

  • Dustin Duvall-Black

    Leave children in peace? What the fuck is that supposed to mean? What a fucking dumbfuck

  • Ryan Marquette

    The law has nothing to do with sexual abuse, children are very important in russia so they do not want any people pushing any beliefs on them, president vladimir putin is a good man so why are you so quick to demonize him. Trust me russians are not homophobic

    • Trisha Jacobs

      Honey, the reports of beatings going on (often with video footage taken by the perps) would seem to indicate that you don’t know what you’re talking about. And, by the by, gays don’t push their “beliefs” on children.

    $$$$ over Human Rights. Why…where have we seen this before…?? Pathetic, those entities and churches here in America who actively incite and promote discrimination and hatred in other countries need to be made fully accountable.Why is our government tolerating this hideous export while giving them special tax status as well???

  • Thomas Escott

    because you know, we all love the children!!! Damn, he is such an idiot…make sure he passes that along to Catholic priests too.

  • Jim Langford

    I would not feel safe attending and I think gay athletes and spectators are at risk. The games should have been immediately moved from Russia and the Russian govt foot the bill for having to go somewhere else. Future Olympic selections should be made only among nations where all are welcome

  • Christine Kyes Lundgren

    Seriously?? What an idiot!

  • Trisha Jacobs

    Oh yeah, being told that I’m a threat to kids really makes me feel welcome. F you.

  • Amy Elizabeth Kachelries

    We do????? Unless they’re our kids??? Gay ppl aren’t child snatchers.

  • Sebastião Ribeiro


  • Joseph Bartholomew

    HA HA HA HA HA HA HA! I’m gay and I’m not attracted to children! Knowledge is power people and it will also help you look far less STUPID! Do these narrow minded idiots realize that straight people Murder, Molest, Rape and Beat kids ALL THE TIME!?!?! GET OVER YOURSELF AND EDUCATE YOURSELF!

  • Seth Evans

    He’s so full crap, he is just waiting to people in jail or have them killed.

  • Joe Piccard

    Really? He should be more concerned about the step fathers, boy friends and other straight men molesting children, that is a true problem.

  • Rob De Nazar

    Oh come on, leave the children in peace? are you equating being LGBT with molesting kids? molesting is almost always done by straight family and friends, don’t you know about this via your education Mister Putin?

  • Gareth Cattouse

    What a dreadful comment – doesn’t he know the majority of child molesters are straight. Wouldn’t go to Russia even if I was offered a night of bliss with the whole of the Red Army.

  • David Dew

    Yes I don’t understand the rouse of using the poor innocent children and their susceptibility to homosexual behavior as to influence them to be gay as a valid defense of these policies. How ignorant people are as to the true nature of human sexuality that these people think it so learned that all people are potentially gay in that they only have to hear of it to become a homosexual. What they are really doing is denying our fellow queers especially youth the outreach they need to succeed in a hostile environment.

  • Lorenzo Ruiz

    You mean… guard them from the likes of you.

  • Suzy Bell Glover O’Hara

    Sounds like Putin and those in his government need to review current and valid research on the subject. Another case of ignorance and fear being used to discriminate.

  • Seán Campbell Harris

    This guy’s not ignorant, he’s dumb. You can’t teach a idiot. The only chance LGBTI Russians have is if an intelligent individual takes power. One that can at least be taught.

  • Kimberly Jones

    He’s afraid that we might inspire all the children in Russia.

  • Kimberly Jones

    He’s afraid that we might inspire all the children in Russia. That it’s OK to be Gay.

  • Liesl Kustermann

    Does he think being gay means you are a child molester? Is he serious? What an uneducated twit.

  • Jim Rosser

    Then he should not promote the torture his law is causing of innocent youth suspected of being gay or different. What a jack ass.

  • Ryan Marquette

    We are welcomed as long as we leave the children in peace. Because of course the only reason gay people are attending the Olympics at all is so they can harass Russian children.

  • Joseph DiDio

    Fuck him and his country and the Olympics.

    And to think I was gonna give them a chance!!

    that won’t be a problem…who is tending to the pedophiles, i wonder.

  • Roberta Echelson

    He has obviously confused pedophilia with sexual orientation/gender identity. Ignoramus.

  • Jordan A Dinero

    We need to focus on the countries where all homosexual behavior is punished with death or imprisonment. This is one of less violent laws. Yes it should be fought but there are others in more dire need.

    The U.S. should boycott the games because of this idiot.

  • Deb Schofield

    Fucking moron!

  • Matthew Rosaaen

  • Janelle Russell

    Um…do they not understand the definition of “gay” vs “child molestor”?

  • Sarah Eva

    Stop talking about gay people! and do something about your nasty Russian Mafia and their fascination with the child sex slave trade — get your fucking priorities in order!

  • Stephen Melott

    We dont want your children, we want your athletes! #sarcasm

  • Sarah Eva

    You did say *LEAVE THE CHILDREN IN PEACE* — did you not????????

  • Tasha Allen

    LOL something’s gone missing during translation.

  • Pierre Paul Létourneau

    This guy, is all mixed up! he is in complete confusion! This issue has nothing to do regarding CHILDREN’ what an idiot !

  • Frank Stjerne

    Putin is welcome in Copenhagen if he leaves the children in pease and keeps hes hands away from the under age girls

  • Dorian Newton

    The twat. We’re not child molesters

  • Terry D. Smith

    I knew he was off, but didn’t know that he was this ignorant, most molesters are of the other persuation

  • Sarah Eva

    I want the entire world to shut the fuck up about LGBT they are not the problem and they are not hurting anyone! Now pedophiles on the other hand are a big fucking problem and they hurt everyone! It is way past time for the world to FOCUS their attention on the real the real problems that we face in our world today and all throughout history. Stop ignoring the facts and shoving your ill calculated agenda down everyones throat.

  • Blake Oncale

    Nobody wants your damn children.

  • Stef Deveraux

  • Richard Lyons

    Hmm gays arnt safe they get the shit beat out of em

    do u think if kids are kept away from hearing about gays they won’t turn gay only thing this reel do is five up their suicide rate

  • David Bolinger

    I fully agree with this man .. why? … because it is their country and their laws. It is not the RIGHT of Americans to force their views, ideas, or opinions on another country. You have to understand what the man is saying, I do not believe in his language he is saying anything about pedophiles, you have to know meanings of words (the word propaganda does not mean having sex with). Please educate yourselves.

    • Jason Thomas Davis

      david its a shame they r torturing us so then it becomes human rights fuck thier laws. would you say the same shit to hitler which is the same way he started. well it was germany and they had the right to their own laws but doesnt make it right. nothing worse then your own people showing support for our enemies. traitor lol!

    • David Bolinger

      human rights? did you read a list of those? who wrote them? It is all a matter of perception. Different groups of people have been persecuted since the start of human kind, and it will continue on. My personal thought is that there is nothing wrong with not forcing same sex interactions on other peoples children, that should be their right to be able to take their child to something and not be exposed to that. For Hitler, I think he was a brilliant person, he just went about things a little wrong … what could be better than a place that was nothing but very attractive white people? sounds like it would have been a great place.

    • Jason Thomas Davis

      no one was forcing same sex on anything. you sound like a bigot. but its ok to force straight sex in front of children. your supposed to be on our side. nothing worse than a gay person trying to harm their own people. and the human right to exist without being beaten and murdered and jailed for just existing that is a human right. what r u going to say next homosexuality is a choice? get the fuck out of here with that. pic a side or go live in Russia if you like the way they treat their people so much. you must not have seen the torture and the murders of gay teens under age kids that go un prosecuted over their. thats the government breaking their own laws. Russia has strict laws on murder but all of the sudden its ok to murder gay kids. well if you support that your warped!

    • David Bolinger

      That is because they have not started the Olympics. that is their culture .. like it or not … and we as Americans should respect their wishes while in their country. I at no point said i think it is right … I am saying it is their right to do what they want in their country. What it boils down to is respect. If you are going to be in their country you should respect them and their wishes as they should ours when they are here.

    • Jason Thomas Davis

      he’s saying for the gays to leave kids alone like we r just child predators. if you agree with that then i dont know what the fuck is in your head. hes only saying that cause theyve been thinking of canceling the olympics. but you can be damn sure if they know your gay your going to be arrested. they’ll just say you looked at a child. IT IS HITLER ALL OVER AGAIN. respect their wishes? it sounds like you even believe us gays are going over there and are just going to kidnap their children. but us gays are not after children so their is no wishes to respect. you sound just like the gay haters. you must believe gays are child predators in which cause are you one???????? some wish to respect. one would have to be a predator to even respect that wish since us gays ARE NOT perverts unlike them who rape to teach us a lesson. your trying to be on the wrong side. that country can do what it wants as long as it doesnt harm people. and the only harm to people is coming from them. so if anyone needs to respect wishes then he needs to respect thee natural law of the right to live! your sounding just as bad if not worse than the westboro baptist church!

    • David Bolinger

      You honestly need to read what this story says to start with. If their are words you do not comprehend feel free to ask for someone to assist you in the definition and then the context it is used. If you have any proof of what you are talking about feel free to post links.other than that your feeble mind is not allowing you to comprehend what the story actually says. Once again i will point out I did not at any point say i think their beliefs are right … but it is their beliefs, not mine.

    • Jason Thomas Davis

      i dont need to its been all over the news for months.. i read it hes said for us gays to leave the children alone. i dont think that registering with you. you must think gays are child molesters too. your own people well thats real nice.

    • Jason Thomas Davis

      this shouldnt even be an argument among two gays!!!????? WTF! You know you stand alone on this post right scroll and read everyone elses post. then read yours then tell me what you sound like. A GAY HATER IS WHAT YOU SOUND LIKE!

    • David Bolinger

      Well .. now that i think about it … do you speak a second language? (chances re you do not because of being from Frankfort) In other languages they have different words that do not translate verbatim. As well as other countries have a better command of words (like here when people had class) so what you are hearing/reading is something that has been translated … so you have to trust how they interpreted what was said is actually what they said and or what them meant.

    • Jason Thomas Davis

      ok so i guess he didnt say that and the translator made it up! Just stop with lame argument.. nothing i hate more than a gay hater is a gay person who would through his own people under the bus! and im not from frankfort.

    • David Bolinger

      no they sound like they got their panties in a wad because they do not know the meanings of words. feel free to show me any definition of “propaganda” as any form of sexual act and i will more than happily eat my words. I did not read anywhere where the man said anything about pedophilia .. that is something some idiot came up with and the gay sheep jumped right in on the wagon.

    • David Bolinger

      look down the comments … i see all kinds of them with the word pedophile in them … where did that come from .. was not the story i read. It is times like this that I do not support gays .. if they want to sit there and lie and make things up … I do not condone that. That gives humans like me a bad name.

    • Jason Thomas Davis

      they are using that as an excuse. countless teens have been being raped and beating since the law and the government did nothing and allowed it thats the problem i dont geive a fuck about your look in the dictionary attitude to win an argument. the point is the law is allowing harm to inocent people and your supporting it! you can say what you want throught this that and everything under the sun with the biggest words you want to through in there and nothing is going to change the fact that you look like an asshole right now hating your own people!

    • Jason Thomas Davis

      OMG now your trying to argue about a fucking word as if it matters. its what he means that matters. it was just on the news saying the same thing. so im done with this argue with yourself and make yourself the biggest prick in the world for all i care. i support my people!

    • David Bolinger

      I take it you know him personally and you know what he means? even if the translation is a little off and they meant to say pedophile rather than propaganda … is that it?

  • Mike Skulltail Turtlebutt

    What the fudge??!

  • Geri Ayers

    He needs to be worried about heterosexual uncles, boyfriends, fathers, politicians if he is worried about pedophiles.

  • Fred Phelix

    He is a moron.

  • Judy Rivera

    Intolerance….games should have been changed.

  • Craig Sulser-Clark

    Is that what it is…they’re clinging to an archaic stereotype as if all gay people are child molesters? A little cultural education would help here.

  • Dan Leonard

    is this being sneaky ?? everyone is a child of their parents !!

  • Troy Godfrey

    Barbarian !!!

  • Myrna E. Agudo-Quinones

    It’s ok when they prostitute and sell their women. They have the nerve. Obviously he’s very misinformed about Gay people. This just proves it!

    lo que yo te diga…menuda mamarracha armarizada!

  • Shann Longhurst

    The very definition of feeling welcome is being in a country that puts you in jail for being gay. Well I guess it could be worse, you could be killed for being gay. :/

  • Judith Fleming-Berger

    Since being gay has nothing to do with children it shows how ignorant Putin is about gays. What an ass.

  • Tonio Delia

    what does the word GAY has to do with children …poor sick putin

  • Oliver Grannis

    And the Olympic committee is okay having the games in Russia. Shame on all of you. Putin’s self loathing must be so extreme, he can’t think clearly.

  • James Stephen Longo

    So adults are fair game, Vlad? Like, for example, you?

  • Jason Benzinger

    I wonder why he has such disdain for us. Could it be he was raped or abused in some way by a gay man or woman (or even a straight man for that matter) and now is traumatized by the event and is assuming every gay person is an abusive prick? Or he is just an ignorant ass? Idk. I’ll just leave this comment here and let you all enjoy yourselves :)

  • Jason Sprouse

    Mr. Putin you can not group homosexuals in the cat. With pedophiles. It is a proven that the vast majority of child molestation comes from straight males and some females and then is usually a close family member.

  • Barry Glatt

    My my, doesn;t that say it all about how stupid and homophobically paranoid this asshole is? So typical of people who see us as stereotypes, who have also created all kinds of “facts” based on nothing more than their own paranoid delusions.

  • Stephen James Frost

    There’s a four letter word that begins with C that is appropriate for seriously horrible people. However, in Putin’s case- a word like that would be a compliment- because he is the lowest form of scum that this world can produce.

  • Wes Babcock

    WTF? We should just boycott the damn games!

    So if people are heterosexual, They are allowed to have sex with Russian Children?? Is that what he wants? I don’t get it? What an ASSHOLE!!!

  • Kris Swenson

    I was just telling my partner last night that I have a bad feeling about these Olympics. As a gay woman I am seriously worried about the safety of all of our athletes PERIOD! I am on the fence as to whether we should even attend. Who knows what will/won’t happen but I am just afraid there is a hidden agenda and we as a nation will be tried to get pulled into something.

    Also, due to this, I won’t be watching the Olympics this year, I will be watching Girl Meets World.

    Wut. I don’t think Putin is thinking clearly here. Make laws to condemn a set of peoples and then say they are welcome as long as they don’t do something that is a ridiculous myth. Really, Putin? How is this being a leader? He’s full of more misdirection than a magician.

  • Christopher Santos

    This is a very common misnomer our community receives from most republicans and tea partiers that we are placed on this earth to abuse children. You know it’s part of our agenda (not)! Putin believes in this misnomer. It is so funny that most of the countries that gives America the most problems are anti-gay ones such as Russia, Iran, etc. Go figure!

  • Toni Massari

    The fact that he assumes gays are paedophiles says a lot about HIS proclivities, do you not think? I mean… gay men like MEN! Lesbian women like WOMEN.

    Is this one of those things where there aren’t separate words for two different things in a language? Because if it is, then I nominate ‘pedophile’ as a borrow word for the Russians so they can differentiate between homosexuals and child-molesters.

    they are sick minded people….. for real, if that’s the case I was made gay by straight catholics…. maybe they should leave the children alone!!!!

  • Elizabeth Bassett

    He just can’t win. He’ll allow gays and show that the fear is behind the dated notion that connects homosexuality to pedophilia.

  • Mizuki Kurai

    People should get away from Putin. He’s a monster. Or a pedofile cause he wants all the children to himself.

  • Eric Dixon

    Ponderous retard.

  • Lizzie DeSade

    Talking out of both sides of his mouth.

  • Reed Sandra


  • Gaétan Nadeau

    On s’en câlisse des enfants !

  • Karri Wilson Sunderman

    evidently Putin doesn’t know the difference between a gay person and a pedophile

  • Rachel Rose

    He believes the stereotype, that gay people are auromatically child molesters.

  • Ari Zighelboim

    They must leave the children… to orthodox priests and pedophile politicians like him, he actually meant.

  • Denise Tharp


  • Joanna Mandell Tipple

    What an ignorant thing to say.

  • Celtic Priest

    I’m beginning to suspect PUTIN is the pedophile. He is as obsessed about this subject as Pat Robertson is about gay men.

  • Jorge A. Melendez


  • Jean Michel Chasseur

    What a complete asshole to even insinuate anything like that, when most child molesters are straight.

  • Jason Gonzalez

    Since when were gays classified with pedophiles? Secondly how does he even make sense with all the beatings and police abuse on gays there?

  • Daniel Burns

    This guy is a asshat

  • Steph James

    “F” Him!!!!!

  • Mary Grimm

    This guy is such an A*****le

  • Glorya Galicia

    He’s a Scumbag and deliberately confusing the issues.

  • Cory Jackson

    WHAT? so then repeal the propaganda law ! I wont visit Russia until they do !

  • Caroline K Ko


  • Kev Teym Vere

    No concept of the real world. Russia lead by an uneducated man, not much hope for the country then is there.

  • Ian Louis Hall

    CHILDREN?!! I think this troglodyte jackass is confusing homosexuality for pedophilia. Not only are they unrelated, pedophilia is virtually the sole domain of heterosexual men. Does this homophobia-driven bullshit ever end?

  • Paul Bruce

    Putin should be left in pieces.

  • Nancy Keyes

    I had no idea that being gay meant you were a pedophile! What a MONSTER!!!

  • Apollo Neptune

    fucking dik head

  • Mike Phillips

    let’s start a world-wide message that Putin is a pedophile and rapes boys and girls … pass it on

  • Michael Anthonyipapo Cruz RN


  • Edward Pinyor Hutchings

    There are some pedophiles that are homosexual, so he has a point to make, regardless if it sounded mean at the time.

  • Julie Martini


  • Roger Prescott

    Putin Is A Sick Idiot! Thought Russia was doing better…sadly, it’s as bad and as backwards as it ever was. I don’t care what kind of concessions he makes now. I won’t be watching the Olympics this time. I won’t be buying any of the commemorative stuff or any products that are official sponsors of the Olympics this time. I can’t believe the cop out of the IOC either…. I’ve lost a lot of respect for the Olympic Games themselves as well as their governing board. They obviously do not care about the Olympics being a success once they’ve awarded the games to a country/city/metro area…It’s their problem after that. They just sit back and rake in the money. Disgusting.

  • Michael Aymard

    Putin is a pedophile !!

  • Arath Jacquez

    Whate the fuck; There are more heterosexual men that rape children and women, why the fuck they dont do something about that? ;

  • Sergio Morgendorffer

    Yeah, because gays like little children… I was VERY nervous about that… Yeah right… -_- He can’t see the difference between love and abuse…

  • Tamala Rikki

    He sounds like Gov Corbet!!!

  • Thomas Holz

    Über Schwul-/Lesbisch- Sein muss in Russland sehr viel gesprochen werden. um viele Missverständnisse, Mythen und Legenden auszuräumen. Russland hat Aufklärung bitter nötig!! :-)
    Schwule/Lesben sind eben k e i n e kinderfressende Monster! :-)

    Ignorant idiot!

  • Jocelyn Pazzi

    What à jerk à real shame

  • Molly Doherty

    So Putin just assumes all gay people are pedophiles?! WTF…

  • Sammy Stills

    He’s the threat to the children.

  • Sue Frampton

    He just worried that someone will find out he is gay and it will ruin his macho image.

  • Max Bruno Dahlberg

    Putin: SUCK MY D*CK!!!

  • Terry Royer

    Stupid prick!

  • Meggington Linger

    Why doesn’t he tell that to the Roman Catholic church.

  • Shondolyn Gibson

    Stupid. Might as well ban the church from Russia because how many children have been molested by churches who just hide this fact from the public?

  • Nola Shiver Brelig

    WHAT ???

  • Ashlei Ross

    Omg so what does being gay have to do with children?

  • Cindi Strong

    What an airhead! You couldn’t pay me to visit this country with such an ignorant leader!

  • Dale Goode

    he eats children for breakfast ……lol

  • Christine Radtke

    This little bastard really irritates me!

  • Bill Torres

    Oh, putin is a puta!

  • Aida Gates

    He is an idiot……….. Where is Keith Olberman when we need him?????

  • Rex Barbatus

    What if gay people come with their own children? He’s such a nit-wit.

  • Linda Zahavi

    This guy is so homophobic makes you wonder…is he gay and trying to hide it?

  • Jean Raley-Dennis


  • Michael Smith

    What an idiotic thing to say. Don’t worry will not be coming there anytime soon anyway. So you don’t have to worry about me cooking up and eating any children. Oh or did you mean something else dumbass.

  • Lorraine Farrell

    meanwhile, back in Russia, gay citizens are being beaten, tortured kidnapped and killed while Putin declares his country safe for gay people.

  • Ashleigh Jennifer Macfie

    It’s like he thinks us LBGT people just want to turn the whole world gay. Wouldn’t that be boring. Let people be who they want to be, don’t hide something just because it makes you uncomfortable. What about those minors who rely on the so called “propaganda” to help them with their own internal struggle with their sexuality? And technically in a round about way he is currently on a heterosexual relationship propaganda spree. Isn’t that a little ironic? Let people be proud of who they are and give them the chance to celebrate themselves no matter who they are or who they love

  • Arthur Eldridge

    Putin wants the kids for his use…for him to think what he is thinking he has it all wrong..

  • Lily Lamb

    OMG!!!!! How ignorant is this man!!!! Does he ever read in his spare time and hold an intellectual humanistic discussion with anyone!!! Russia must bow their head in shame for choosing this uneducated man as their leader

  • Claude Pelletier

    You know nothing about gays peoples….IGNORANT! Me, i have absolutely NO attraction for 20 y.o. neither younger! No way!

  • Ed Solenberger


  • Claude Pelletier

    You gonna demolish many lifes because of your IGNORANCE.

  • Todd Parrish Schulthies

    He obviously thinks gay people are child molesters…thus, his medieval thinking on the whole subject

  • John Houston

    Children should be worried about Priest more than Gays.

  • Mark Gilley

    We need to protect children from Putin!

  • Roberto Murphy

    What a STUPID some of you said what? do children have to do with this…..

  • Victor Ortiz

    There are no gender identities s in child molesters….

  • Mike Domínguez

    well I think that we can all agree in him with that, but pedophilia is not just an issue that gays have to shamefully deal with but an even more so rampant issue for heterosexuals. singling out gays as predators is offensive, disrespectful and encourages hate, intolerance and violence against GLBT people. When Putin makes an official statement stating this OBVIOUS fact and denouncing the violence against GLBT Russians then, and only THEN. maybe he will gain a little forgiveness and perhaps save a little face.

  • Janus Chambers

    A nation of hicks, ran by a hick.

    Some of the biggest closed minded people around are the Liberal Left! Talking bad about Christians, Catholics and anyone else with morals and traditional values! “Bigotry” we see it to often on the left!

  • Dale Chapman

    Such profound ignorance !!!!

  • Hector Manuel Pagan-Serrano

    He is partly right because not all but many gays actually molest children. However it is not only some gays that molest children but also some heterosexuals molest children as well,

  • Tom Fennell

    Going down, like his pal Berlusconi…..

  • Sylvan Rose

    Most pedos identify as heterosexual.

  • Scott Edward Quinton

    This guy was so obviously abused as a kid

  • Tammy Musgrove

  • Maya Finlayson

  • Mackenzie Brown

    The hell!?!? What are all gays pedophiles!?!?

  • Elizabeth Brown

    Damn he needs to get a new PR team. Also become informed most of the pedophiles are heterosexual not gay. Why is he so obsessed with gays? Really do you think that makes a gay person want to come to the Olympics? Damn it gives me the creeps.

  • Gail Prentiss Nelson

    How ignorant!!!!!

  • Rachael M. Clulee

    I guess it’s true what they say:
    Ignorance Begets Ignorance!!! SMH :/ :/ :/

    There’s a huge difference between Being Sexually Abused & Being Gay–In Being Gay, Sex Is A Choice–In Sexual Abuse, It Isn’t!!! :o :o :o

    Furthermore, Being Gay Has Nothing To Do With Being Attracted To Children–That’s What Pedophelia Is All About–Yet Somehow, Uneducated People Seem To Equate Being Gay With Being A Pedophile–And It’s Bc Of All Those Priests Who Used To (And Probably Still Do) Sexually Abuse Children!!! :o :o :o

  • Rachael M. Clulee

    Global News shared the following link and had this to say about it:

    A document obtained by The Associated Press shows Pope Benedict XVI defrocked nearly 400 priests over just two years for molesting children.

    The statistics for 2011-12 represent the first time that the Vatican has provided details on the number of priests who have been defrocked. Prior to that, it had only revealed the number of alleged cases of sexual abuse it had received.

    My Response:

    Stephen Harper gave a vague unfelt apology to the Native people of Canada for the physical & sexual they suffered while in Residential School–I think it would help in their healing process if the Vatican–The Pope Himself–visited Canada & gave a public apology as well!!! :) :) :)

    It’s bc of grown men molesting/sexually abusing young boys that people are sooo Homophobic–bc they equate Homosexuality with Sexual Abuse–which is Sooo Unfair to the Gay Community who just happen to be Attracted To The Same Gender & Are Simply Looking For Someone To Love Them–Just Like Everybody Else!!! :o :o :o

  • Anna Bridges

    Putin has an obsession with gays and children. Has he been sodomized as a child? Or has he an obsession with molesting children? He is constantly associating “children” with “gays” which starts sounding very troubling from the psychological point of view and concerning about his mental sanity.

  • Frank Andersen

    Frank_vejle _Danmark

  • Kyle Voisey

    He would rather they starve to death on the streets.

  • Jolyn Brooks Meehan


  • Brian David Scates

    This man is just as much likely to be a paedophile as a homosexual is logically.

  • Pedro Castellon

    Is he fucking kidding me?! What a disgrace….He should leave children in peace

  • Pedro Castellon

    Goes to show what’s really on his mind….that perv!!

  • Brian Cowell

    Olympians should wonder about their Russian hosts, and keep their mouths shut. (is more like it).

  • Kimber Petrie

    As a soon to retire public school teacher, I can tell you that of all the hotline calls to social services, never once did we hot line a gay man for sexually abusing a child. We did, unfortunately, deal with frequent incest in all gender combinations but usually fathers and daughters, as well as chronic pedophilia from step dads, uncles, cousins and caregivers. STOP using ‘gay ‘ synonymously with ‘pedophile’…get educated, study the statistics. Children are more at risk in a Catholic Church than with a gay adult. I must also add that gay parents are so conscientious of doing great jobs as parents…kudos to them all.
