I’ll admit it: my first reaction was something I had to delete because I should not want to hold an entire country responsible for one man’s feelings. Now I’ll just leave it at: bloody hell!
A Russian actor recently spewed inflammatory comments about gays in Russia, saying he wants to burn them all alive in ovens.
Ivan Okhlobystin is a priest and actor who stars in Russia’s version of “Scrubs” and voiced a character in 2012’s “Snow Queen.” On Sunday, he made homophobic statements during a “spiritual talk” in Siberia’s Novosibirsk, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
“I would have them all stuffed alive inside an oven. This is Sodom and Gomorrah, as a believer, I can not remain indifferent to this, it is a living danger to my children!” he said, according to a Huffington Post translation of a local news report from NGS.Novosti.
“I don’t want my children thinking that being a faggot is normal,” he continued. “This is gay fascism! If a man can not choose an appropriate person of the opposite sex for reproduction — that is a clear sign of mental abnormality, then he needs to be deprived of that right to choose.”
