Russia's Morals 'Cleaner' Than The Rest/West

Ohhhhkay, here's where Stephen Colbert would insert a dry witticism that would praise Russia on the surface but really lambast their short sightedness.

Russia is apparently claiming their morals are 'cleaner' than the west's, as voiced through their communist mouthpiece, er, I mean, mayor:

This was in response to a gay protest put down by Moscow police:

"They had wanted to lay flowers at the grave of the unknown warrior, a monument to those who died defeating Nazi Germany, but police blocked their path.
Mayor Yuri Luzhkov said such an action would have been a desecration of the sacred monument, and rejected Western criticism of his ban as prejudiced and homophobic."

Let me get this straight. Millions of soldiers and citizens died to end Nazi Germany's persecution of everyone, which includes gays, jews, gypsies, blacks, communists, etc., and yet having homosexuals pay tribute to this is a desecration?

I think that is a GREAT way to pay tribute - let the ones who were persecuted protest where they never could before.

But apparently the mayor of Moscow feels differently, especially since their "morals are cleaner." Did you mean that in the same vein as Hitler, who wanted to make his 'race' cleaner, Mr. Mayor?
