Let's Check That Fatima Tape Again

This piece of news is very interesting indeed...

Russia moves to enact anti-gay law nationwide

MOSCOW (AP) - Kissing his boyfriend during a protest in front of Russia's parliament earned Pavel Samburov 30 hours of detention and the equivalent of a $16 fine on a charge of "hooliganism." But if a bill that comes up for a first vote later this month becomes law, such a public kiss could be defined as illegal "homosexual propaganda" and bring a fine of up to $16,000.

The legislation being pushed by the Kremlin and the Russian Orthodox Church would make it illegal nationwide to provide minors with information that is defined as "propaganda of sodomy, lesbianism, bisexuality and transgenderism." It includes a ban on holding public events that promote gay rights. St. Petersburg and a number of other Russian cities already have similar laws on their books.

The bill is part of an effort to promote traditional Russian values as opposed to Western liberalism, which the Kremlin and church see as corrupting Russian youth and by extension contributing to a wave of protest against President Vladimir Putin's rule.

Interesting observation. Some fruits from conversion?

The Fatima message abides. Unless they are really serious about legislating against this and putting teeth to it, these attempts to pull back to a 'God-protected land of purity and godliness' as quoted by Rev. Rybko, will be little more than convulsions towards a sodomite darkness.

I say, bring it on. I wish the US and the Church here would enact something like this.

This video is worth the time (particularly beginning around the three-minute mark).

If I knew all languages of the world, I'd rather live in Russia than anywhere else. They have common sense. And they have a city over there that has the Holy Face on the flag!

And acc'd to opinion surveys, it has the highest regard for Christianity of any European country. Ireland included.

Not sure how this factors into Fatima ... but Russia is being singled out... which is most interesting.
