Putin Rejects ‘Gay Marriage’, Considers Amending Constitution to Protect Traditional Marriage

PRESIDENT VLADIMIR PUTIN said on Thursday Russia would not legalize gay marriage as long as he was in the Kremlin.

He made clear he would not allow the traditional notion of mother and father to be subverted by what he called “parent number 1” and “parent number 2”.

“As far as ‘parent number 1’ and ‘parent number 2’ goes, I’ve already
spoken publicly about this and I’ll repeat it again: as long as I’m
president this will not happen. There will be dad and mum,” Putin said.

 During his two decades in power, Putin has closely aligned himself
with the Orthodox Church and sought to distance Russia from liberal
Western values, including attitudes toward homosexuality and gender
fluidity.

 He made the comments as he met a state commission to discuss changes to Russia’s constitution.

 The commission was set up last month after Putin announced
sweeping changes to Russia’s political system that are widely seen as
being designed to help him extend his grip on power after his scheduled
departure from office in 2024.

 Other proposals have since been put forward and Putin was asked to comment on a proposal to add a line in the constitution defining marriage as a union between a man and a woman.  “We need only to think in what phrases and where to do this,” he replied.
