Homophobia,  Russia,  The Right

American rightists ♥ Putin (continued)

Last month I mentioned how two prominent figures on the American Right– Rush Limbaugh and Ralph Peters– had kind words for Russia’s authoritarian and Assad-apologist President Vladimir Putin, whom they credit with opposing the “gay agenda” and standing up for “Christian values.”

Putin’s latest rightwing fanboy is anti-gay extremist Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association. Fischer calls Putin “a lion of Christianity,” and says the contrast between him and Barack Obama “could not be more striking.”

I agree with Fischer on the contrast. Where we differ is which president the contrast favors.
