Christian conservative Bryan Fischer on Monday lamented that Russia's anti-gay law isn't broad enough.

The law, signed by Russian President Vladimir Putin in June, makes “propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations among minors” illegal. Its passage has provoked an international outcry and calls for a boycott of the Winter Olympics to be held next year in Sochi.

On his AFA-sponsored radio show, Fischer defended the law, saying that “homosexuality is a moral evil.”

Russians “understand that homosexual behavior is a moral evil among teenagers,” Fischer said. “Now they need to get to the point where they recognize it's a moral evil for anybody.”

“But at least they're ahead of us on recognizing that it's a moral evil to propagandize this lifestyle among teenagers.”

“What Russia had done here with this law is they have expressed the values that we [the pro-family movement] have been advocating for years and years and years. We think this is risky behavior, it's a risky lifestyle, it's unnatural, it's unhealthy, it's dangerous, it's immoral. We should not be propagating this among our teenagers.”

“In my mind we ought to be celebrating this,” he added. (The video is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
