Here’s 7 reminders of all the anti-gay horrors in Russia that Trump just sanctioned

Now that Donald Trump has confirmed that Vladimir Putin is his BFF, it’s worth a reminder of just what normalizing Russia’s bad behavior means. In the case of LGBTQ rights, it means that Trump has sanctified the violence and oppression that Putin has made a hallmark of his presidency.
 
Just how bad is it? With his cowardly and traitorous performance at Monday’s press conference, Trump essentially gave a green light to Putin to do whatever he wants to do and will likely ramp up his attacks on the LGBTQ community.
 
Based on what Putin has done in the past, that’s going to be pretty ugly. Here’s a list of some of the most egregious and vicious attacks on LGBTQ people that characterize Putin’s Russia.

Gay marriage does not fit in a Communist country, Cuban Evangelicals say

Cuban faithful are seen, Nov. 14, 2003, leaving the Evangelical Church of Canaan in Miller near Santa Clara central Cuba. The small church that American pastor Paul Northrup planted in central Cuba 50 years ago has grown and thrived since he left in 1959, becoming a small part of a broad movement that Cuban evangelicals have built across their socialist nation. AP File / 2003

Five Evangelical churches in Cuba say they oppose same-sex marriage because the ideology of gender is totally foreign to Cuban culture or “the historic leaders of the Revolution.”

The Evangelical League of Cuba, the Eastern and Western Baptist Conventions, the Methodist Church of Cuba and the Assembly of God Evangelical Church explained their posture in a statement posted last week on their social networks.

The statement came as the legislative National Assembly gets ready to meet at the end of this month to consider changes to the 1976 Constitution.
