  1. Well, in fact he is right…. having the 2014 OG in Russia with all the anti-gay and anti-democratic activities going on there would be supporting the hate-campaign against homosexual people, and the undermining of human rights going on in Russia!

    BUT.. the great question then arises…were to hold the 2014 OG then? Tike to appoint another city isn’t there, and going back to another former city were the OG were held is impossible due to infrastructure, money etc. etc! Solution may be pass the 2014 OG at all……. Would be novum indeed… but it at the same time it would give a huge signal to all that human rights and equal rights are important to People!

    Lets decide to have the OG go back to Greece, permanently! So that every four years the OG are in the same place, and the basics of the OG are restored….. ending and removing the commercial and the politics from it!
    Making it a SPORTS event again!
