Ah, don’t criticize Russia for its obviously anti-gay laws says Canadian IOC member… Dick Pound.
Yes, Dick Pound thinks we’ve been too hard on Russia when other nations have far worse anti-gay laws. Dick Pound also says the press has moved on to talking about terrorism at the Sochi Olympics because the press is tired of the gay issue.
The world’s concern about terrorist activities at the upcoming Sochi Olympics has been a result of the media losing interest in the homosexual issue in Russia, Canadian IOC member Dick Pound told Metro.
“Nobody has got anything else to write about and for some reason as they have sort of moved away from the anti-gay stuff — I think it’s not drawing the kind of attention that they wanted,” Pound said.
Pound said other countries have “far harsher laws” regarding homosexuals than Russia and little is written on that.
