"Russia is not being homophobic, it's homorealistic - the Russian government is trying to take the issue into consideration and establish public policy to contribute to public health, as this lifestyle is not be promoted, endorsed or granted special legal protection. Homosexual behavior is just as risky as drug abuse.

"I think the Russian government is right to be concerned with propaganda on teenagers who are at the age of struggling through sexual identity issue and we should help to channel these urges in productive behavior. Heterosexuality is God's design. Policies that encourage young people to think this are good ideas."

-- Hate group spokesman Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association, spouting discredited myths about homosexuality to Voice of Russia on Thursday in a conversation about that country's anti-gay "propaganda" law. VOR labeled Fischer an "expert" on the topic.
