50. Yes, and..Very Truly Sad that Putin has a stupid hate for Gays and Dissident Journalists in Russia.

Anti-gay hate group has cozy ties to Putin, Russia

snip//

The World Congress of Families (WCF) is moving full speed ahead with plans to hold an international anti-LGBT conference at the Kremlin in Moscow this fall, despite the growing international crisis in Ukraine and the withdrawal of key conference partner Concerned Women for America over concerns that holding the conference would give the appearance of “giving aid and comfort to Vladimir Putin.”

The Illinois-based WCF has been designated an anti-gay hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks hate groups across America. The Concerned Women for America is also on that same list.

Ty Cobb, Human Rights Campaign (HRC) director of global engagement, demanded that the WCF break ties with Putin and Russia.

"If a group like Concerned Women for America recognizes the recklessness of providing support for the Putin regime, then it’s incredible other anti-LGBT groups would not follow suit," Cobb said. "President Putin has trampled the rights of its LGBT citizens at home and is embroiled in an international crisis over Ukraine. The other partners in the World Congress of Families must now follow suit and withdraw from this event." -

But, why would they "withdraw"? Putin hates Gay People and so do they.
