Famous Russian Actor Wants Gays ‘Burned Alive In Ovens’

A famous Russian actor has infuriated people worldwide by declaring that gay people should be burned alive in ovens. Ivan Okhlobystin, a priest and actor who currently stars in Russia’s version of Scrubs, made the outrageous statements while speaking at a “spiritual talk” in the city of Novosibirsk. Okhlobystin is politically active within the country and has even spoken about running for President within the country.

“I would have them all stuffed alive inside an oven. This is Sodom and Gomorrah, as a believer, I can not remain indifferent to this, it is a living danger to my children,” he said according to the Huffington Post. “I don’t want my children thinking that being a fa**ot is normal. This is gay fascism!” If a man can not choose an appropriate person of the opposite sex for reproduction — that is a clear sign of mental abnormality, then he needs to be deprived of that right to choose.”

Activists within Russia spoke out against his homophobic comments and numerous people have taken to Twitter to criticize Okhlobystin. Nikolay Alexeyev, the leader of Moscow’s gay community, said the actor should be denied visas to “civilized countries” because of his behavior. However, Okhlobystin has spoken out since the controversy and said he does not regret his statements. “The meaning was rendered correctly,” he tweeted. “Everyone has the right to their own opinions.”

Ever since Russia passed a “homosexual propaganda” law over the summer, making it a felony to talk about gay activity to minors, violence against gays has risen substantially. President Barack Obama has responded by sending several current and former gay athletes to the upcoming Winter Olympics in Sochi as U.S. delegates.

    A famous Russian actor? Really? What does that even mean? Maybe he’s famous in Russia, but the rest of the world doesn’t give a frog’s fat ass about him or his opinions. Being a famous actor in Russia is like winning the pie eating contest at a state fair.

    If he turns out to be gay I am going to lauuugh. That being said, DAMN that’s harsh. But that is Christianity in its true form. If a Christian is true to their religion, they believe gays should be put to death. The bible is pretty clear about that. However it also says adulterers and those who don’t observe the Sabbath properly, should also be condemned to death. I wonder if he cheats on his wife; or knows some one who has? I’d wager that would probably be more detrimental to his children than gay people. Does he do nothing but fast and pray every Sunday to give thanks to God as mandated in Leviticus? No 2 hour church bull, God says no work, no leisure, from sun rise to sun set fasting and praying to give thanks to him for creating us; Or else death. But really, who is
    going to do that? I mean come on… :/

      You forgot that in the old testament it is also an abomination to wear garments made from mixed materials ( like a poly/cotton blend ) , or to eat clams or lobsters .Oh and also it is perfectly acceptable to sell your daughter into slavery and required to force a woman to marry her rapist under punishment of ( her ) death.
      But the BIG question for a TRUE Christian is whether you choose to believe Jesus when he said that he had come to free people from the law ( Old Testament ) where all these things being quoted are written and instead told people that God is love and that what was important was that they take care of the poor , the naked, the hungry , the homeless and those that have lost their way.
      BTW do you know what Jesus had to say about Gay people ??? ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!!

    EXODUS 31:15
    15 Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the Sabbath of rest, holy to the LORD: whoever does any work in the Sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death.

    NUMBERS 15:32-36
    32 And while the children of Israel were in the wilderness, they found a man that gathered sticks upon the Sabbath day.
    33 And those who found him gathering sticks brought him to Moses and Aaron, and to all the congregation.
    34 And they put him under guard because it was not declared what should be done with him.
    35 And the LORD said to Moses, The man shall be surely put to death: all the congregation shall stone him with stones outside the camp.
    36 And all the congregation brought him outside the camp, and stoned him with stones, and he died; as the LORD commanded Moses
