" The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) ruled Tuesday against a Russian law preventing the promo of "gay propaganda" among minors, which the court labeled inequitable and motivating of homophobia.
" Offered the ambiguity of the terms made use of as well as the possibly unrestricted range of their application, these provisions are open to abuse in private cases, as confirmed in the 3 applications available," the Strasbourg, France-based court stated in its decision, including: "Most of all, by taking on such legislations the authorities enhance stigma and also bias and also urge homophobia, which is inappropriate with the notions of equal rights, pluralism and also resistance fundamental in a democratic society."
