MOSCOW, June 30. /TASS/. Member of the State Duma lower house of Russia’s parliament Alexey Pushkov on Tuesday questioned the success of the US policy for the spread of same-sex marriages in the world.
He said at Russian Public Chamber hearings that the United States "has already stated that one of the main objectives of the US policy is to spread same-sex marriages around the world."
"I think that they [Americans] will act not through the mechanisms of the United Nations, but through their customary mechanisms of pressure and unilateral imposition of these principles on other countries. But I think that this policy will fail. If Bush wanted to bring democracy to the Middle East, and we all know the result, Obama wants to spread same-sex marriage all over the world, but I think that this policy will be stopped in the Middle East," Pushkov said.
"These societies are absolutely not ready, I’m not speaking of other societies, but the Muslim societies are not ready to accept it, but that does not mean that these attempts will not be taken," Pushkov said.
On June 26, the US Supreme Court declared the same-sex marriage legal in all 50 states. It rules that it does not contradict the American Constitution. Same-sex marriage has been banned in 14 US states.
