"So-called democrats consider that sexual minorities can be the main indicator and main symbol of democracy, but we will in future continue to ban propaganda of the views of sexual minorities. Of course, we will be criticised by all democrats in the world but in each society there are own views on that."

-- Mayor Luzhkov of Moscow, speaking at an international HIV/AIDS conference, on why he will continue to ban gay "propaganda." You may remember Luzhkov as the Russian mayor who has banned Pride events and referred to gay rights marches as "Satanic."
