1. I wonder what it would be here!

I also wonder if it might not come to pass.

6. With Trump in charge, egging his followers on to violence at every turn

I would not be surprised. That is the biggest thing I have missed since Obama is gone, that feeling of being a bit safer. I don't feel the least bit safe now.

2. It was a US preacher (Scott Lively) who inspired the Ugandan "Kill the Gays" bill.

I wouldn't be surprised if a good chunk of US evangelicals would like to liquidate the LGBT community.

Russian homophobia may be more open and prevalent, but homophobia is present in virtually every country.

5. Where I live in NC, I would estimate it at about 80%.

At least, that is how my local precinct voted on Amendment One. It was 77% who were for it. It would stand to reason, those same ones would want to get rid of us entirely, especially considering how much they do hate us. I've had to deal with far too many of them. One neighbor, who is part of a local shooting club, right in the neighborhood said he was practicing for the day it is open season on us.

Nationwide, I cannot say, but where I live in NC, it is unusually high.

4. Why do they need to be such jerks?

I have always wondered if there is a way to make homophobes and others who hate us into the ones that are despised instead? Give them a taste of their own medicine for a while and maybe they will learn what it is like.

8. It's the Russian Orthodox church driving this.

 

They may be in some sense "allied" to Trump, but they aren't following him.
They are what they have always been.

And they are the "established" church, though some others are allowed.

Not everything bad is directly caused by Trump.

9. Well it looks like the bigoted Russians are doing a better job at liquidating themselves.

I say this because they COVID-19 infection rate is 10k per day!

Added to this ridiculousness is the next door neighbor Belarus having a f***in' victory day parade with 100k people in attendance.
