Russia and the IOC agree: Athletes and spectators shouldn’t be openly gay at the Olympics.
Russian Interior Ministry confirmed: Openly gay people attending the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics, including athletes, will be arrested under the country’s draconian new anti-gay law. The International Olympic Committee’s response to gay people? We mean it: Stay in the closet. + http://www.dailystarsunday.co.uk/news/latest-news/331763/David-Cameron-snubs-Stephen-Fry-s-anti-gay-Olympic-plea >> IOC is writing on thing in its charter. And doing the opposite. Value comes from action, not from words & charters. I.O.C. is the latest example. Same with FIFA and the World Cup in Qatar. Sport is a image of Society. How this plays out is a not just a step backwards it's a display of 'looking away' because it doesn't affect me. The word coward doesn't even encompass what is happening. Germany talks Zivilcourage. It's hypocrisy on all sides of the table. Politicians have no guts to take a stand. To boycott what is wrong. To make a dent in the universe.
