Queer Quote: Russian Lawmaker Wants To Ban Gay Parenting

Alexhei Zhuravlev is a member of the lower house of the Russian Parliament and last week proposed a bill that would allow authorities to terminate the parental rights of gay and lesbian parents and remove their kids from their homes.

Zhuravlev is quoted making this astounding statement::
"We view Europe as Sodom and Gomorrah. Europe must not tell us how to live. The Europeans can live any way they like, but they mustn’t tell us what to do. Of course [a gay mother] should definitely be deprived of her rights to the child. Homosexuals must not raise children. They corrupt them. They do them much more harm than if the child were in an orphanage. I am deeply convinced of this."
This incredibly ignorant sentiment is today's Queer Quote. It should be noted that Russia also bans adoption of Russian children to any country that has marriage equality. It is estimated that there are at least 700,000 children in Russian orphanages and another 3 million living on the street.
