Our country doesn't have a standing on how Russia maintains its internal laws and civil order. At least Carter was boycotting due to an invasion of another country. And I think Carter was still wrong on boycotting it. We should have went and did what we could to make sure that Afghanistan participated also.
America still has plenty of issues to deal with at home than seeking those on a foreign shore.
We should not ask those who worked so hard to sacrifice just so one President can get a few measly beanies.
We are not between a rock and a hard place. You are the one advocating putting our hand between the grist and the millstone. Maybe you mean well, but the outcome will not benefit the gays in Russia.
The gays in Russia have to take their stand, we have to take ours.
