Rev. William Owens, a religious liaison for the US group National Organization for Marriage, is proudly defending Russia’s anti-gay propaganda laws.

Owens also went after LGBT organizations who are calling for a boycott of the Sochi Winter Olympics.
‘I believe that this is just another one of their ploys to cover their real intent, which is to force the acceptance of a lifestyle that is a clear violation of American values and moral law.’
Owens ends his email with an assertion that the US is in steep moral decline and in need of pray.
‘I must declare to you that our nation is in trouble. We must pray without ceasing for our nation and we ask for your support to help us stay in the fight.’
As reported by Right Wing Watch, after the Supreme Court’s decision on the Defense of Marriage of Act, Owen promised anti-gay marriage advocates ‘are going to fight to the end, we are not going to give up, we are going to fight like we fought to get civil rights…’
