I asked this question FOUR years ago! Sessions went to Russia.
Fred Koch, the father of the Koch brothers, was a oil man in Russia. The Koch brothers are on a mission from God to end big government. This means the Federal Government. They want the States to have all the power. Is this what Putin wants, so he and the Koch brothers can rule American with petrol dollars, they able to put Doomsday Christniks in all political office so that we Americans are cowering in fear, afraid that Big Brother Jesus is watching us, and will leave us behind as Armageddon approaches? The Christniks passed a law where it is allowed for foreigners to contribute to political campaigns, anonymously.
With the disgusting acquiescence of the Russian Orthodox bishops, Vladimir Putin has accomplished what Sarah Palin, Franklin Graham and Michele Bachmann could only dream of doing in America. He’s made it okay to persecute gay people people in Russia. As Adam Lee notes, Putin has built his power base of corruption and terror with the help of the religious and conservative elements of his society. He’s become expert at courting the alliance of the Russian Orthodox Church. And here in America conservatives are lining up to defend Putin. For instance writing in The American Conservative, in an article called Culture War Goes Global, (August 13, 3013) Patrick J. Buchanan writes:
As Father Regis Scanlon writes in Crisis Magazine, in 2005, Pope Benedict XVI reiterated Catholic doctrine that homosexuality is a “strong tendency ordered toward an intrinsic moral evil,” an “objective disorder.” That homosexual acts are unnatural and immoral remains Catholic teaching. Thus, if we seek to build a Good Society by traditional Catholic and Christian standards, why should not homosexual propaganda be treated the same as racist or anti-Semitic propaganda? …. “The adoption of Christianity,” declared Putin, “became a turning point in the fate of our fatherland, made it an inseparable part of the Christian civilization and helped turn it into one of the largest world powers.” Anyone ever heard anything like that from the Post, the Times, or Barack Hussein Obama?
