Is there any truth to the affiliation made in this article that Christians admire Putin for his attacks against homosexuality?
The Chicago Tribune article titled: Why some Christian Nationalists have loved Putin, reported:
“They admire Putin because they see him as promoting their own conservative views on cultural issues, like attacking LGBTQ Rights.”
The Purpose of This Post
Is to relate ancient wisdom verses observations of human behaviors, a word definition, an an idiom as clues to this this conundrum about Christianity supports Putin.”
Definition of Admire – Merriam Webster
: to feel respect and approval for (someone or something): to regard with admiration
Idiom – a load of rubbish
Exaggerated, foolish, or untruthful talk; nonsense or falsehoods.
Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing (Proverbs 12:18, NIV).
A perverse man stirs up dissension, and a gossip separates close friends (Proverbs 16:28, NIV).
The words of a gossip are like choice morsels; they go down to a man’s inmost parts (Proverbs 18:8 and 26:22, NIV)
What’s My Point?
The article in my opinion is rubbish gossip because it implies Christianity admire Putin for his religious beliefs and support his attacks against gays.
In My Opinion,
The issues of homosexuality and gay marriage are not supported by many Christians because of their belief that marriage is a Holy Sacrament between a man and a woman even though the USA Supreme Court ruled otherwise.
In a Democratic Republic, freedom of choice is a Right of individuals.
The First Amendment Rights of Americans protects religious beliefs and free speech.
USA Secular Laws protect children from allowing adults to engage in homosexuality relationships with children.
Many scientific studies and theories people choose gay relationships is a result of either nature or nurture have never been proven that everyone who engages in homosexuality is born gay and homosexuality cannot be influenced.
In my opinion, news sources need to present both sides of the issue of why Christians do not agree with the Supreme Court secular ruling that gay marriage is a legal right even though it is opposite Christian religious beliefs and values on marriage.
In other words, when a news source prints an article that implies Christians admire a person because he attacks LBQTO Rights, and ends with a statement: “we need to ways to talk to talk across an increasing vehement religious and political divide, it is a gossip opinion instead of the truth “that we need….”
And the truth, in my opinion, is the Supreme Court never should have ruled on the issue to change religious beliefs in marriage is between a man and a woman.
And the statement of Justice Kennedy “that same as flag burning will fade away in time” is false if we believe in the First Amendment Rights of religion and free speech.

If after reading the articles, should the writer have stated Christians attack gay Rights, and admire Putin, (feel respect and approval for (someone or something): because of his views on Christian’s gays or his decision to invade Ukraine, but not explain why Christians do not agree with the Supreme Court decision on gay marriage?
