Some unconventional relief for LGBTQ+ people living in Russia this week as Tsargrad TV offers to pay for a one-way plane ticket for gay people serious about leaving the country.
The niche satellite channel set up to promote Christian Orthodox values insisted it was not trolling users and that it “wants to do good”.
Posting the video to social media, host Andrei Afanasyev called on gay people to compete for a one-way plane ticket overseas.
“Just recently, California – the most liberal state in the USA by the way – proposed to facilitate the granting of green cards to Russian perverts,” translated the BBC.
“We are ready to pay for a one-way ticket to anyone who plans to emigrate in complete earnest, and can provide a medical certificate proving that they are sodomites or have other forms of perversion.”
“We really want you to move there, where you can openly submit to your sins.”
The catch as DNA sees it? Homosexuality isn’t a disease, therefore, can’t be “proven” by supplying a medical certificate.
