Chairman of the Union of journalists of Russia Vsevolod Bogdanov believes that TV "advertises homosexual marriages". He declared it during an interview for conservative "Literarurnaya gazeta" while answering a question regarding the attitude to family values in Russia.
"I think that family values must not be changed just as Bible trues cannot be changed...", said Bogdanov. "Although we try to overtake it sometimes which is for example what now TV does, advertising homosexual marriages, showing how envy or evil can be attractive..."
It is remarkable that it was only Bogdanov (out of six known scientists and artists) who attacked homosexuals in his speech. It is easy to find homophoby - slightly softened by using conditional sentence - in Bogdanov's line: homosexual marrige, envy, evil.. As easy as in the formula of "propaganda" of clericals and nazis that are so miserable in their hate to people of different sexual orientation.
The embarassing point is that this opinion belongs to the leader of a big public organisation - The union of journalists while such a profession is about destroying myths - not establishing them.
Homosexuals in Russia lack the right to create family, to give birth to children and grow them. But it does not prevent homophobic and clerical groups of accusing LGTB society in hardly all the problems of demography.
