As we’ve been reporting, the American Religious Right has found itself in a tough spot following Russian President Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine, since many Religious Right leaders have not only praised Putin’s anti-gay, anti-choice policies but are planning to attend a World Congress of Families summit at the Kremlin later this year.Yep, they will only aid and abet him when he is being a misogynistic homophobe.
Now, one such group that previously praised Putin has announced that it will pull out of the Moscow summit. Buzzfeed reported yesterday that Concerned Women for America will no longer be participating in the World Congress of Families event because, as the group’s CEO Penny Nance said, “I don’t want to appear to be giving aid and comfort to Vladimir Putin.”
i wonder how many others of our globe trotting hate mongers will also pull out [as it were] of the Kremlin hate fest?
Now the question becomes whether other American groups will follow Nance’s lead. An organizing meeting for the event in October included Brian Brown of the National Organization for Marriage, Tom Minnery of Focus on the Family, Benjamin Bull of Alliance Defending Freedom, Justin Murff of the Christian Broadcasting Network and Austin Ruse of the Catholic Family & Human Rights Institute. -Will they move the meeting to Pyongyang?
It's getting hard to hate these days when you have to go 8000 miles to get a red carpet greeting for your spite.
If only he hadn't invaded another country they could have ignored the rest of his time in office and got in some first class international hate mongering.
