Russian Christian TV Network Offers To Pay LGBT “Perverts” To Leave The Country – Video


Russia’s leading religious television channel is offering to send LGBT Russians abroad for good, so they can “submit to their sins” outside Russia.

The ultra-conservative Tsargrad network issued a video message on Thursday to Russians of “non-traditional sexual orientations,” calling them “perverts” and “sodomites” and inviting them to compete for a one-way ticket

In a video shared by the channel’s Facebook page, entitled “Good riddance, sodomites,” one of the channel’s anchors encourages those who “lay with men” or have “some other perversion” to be in touch with the network to have a chance of being selected for the trip. The only requirement is providing a medical record of the “form of perversion” that the contestant “suffers from,” according to the video. 

“This is not a joke,” Andrey Afanasyev, the anchor in the video insists. “We really want you to return there, where you can openly submit to your sins.”

  1. Some of us were born with a silver spoon in our mouths, I’m not one of them. I was born with a dick in my mouth and I’m happy I live in the USA.
