UPDATED: Russian actor wants to burn all gays in furnaces by himself

2 years ago by in Queerussia Tagged: , , , ,

During Novosibirsk tour “Spiritual talks” on December, 8 Russian actor Ivan Okhlobystin, 47,  made several harsh homophobic remarks while fully packed venue greeted them with applause.

Okhlobystin said: “I myself would shove all live gays into furnace. This is Sodom and Gomorrah, I as a beliver in God can not treat this indifferently, this is a live threat to my kids!… I do not want my kids to think that faggots are normal. This is lavender fascism. If a person can not choose someone of an opposite sex for procreation – this is a overt sign of mental abnormality, so they should be denied of voting rights”, NGS NEWS reports.

Okhlobystin is known for a series of homophobic remarks back in 2012.

Okhlobystin became popular in the late 1990s but, following a religious conversion, withdrew to a monastery and became a Russian Orthodox priest. In early 2010 he resumed his entertainment career. Later that year he was named the creative director of Euroset, Russia’s largest handset retailer. Okhlobystin plays head of the therapy department in a medical sitcom “Interny” on TNT TVchannel (Wikipedia).


Later in his twitter Okhlobystin replied to a question on how this statement is supposed to be understood? He said:

[There is] too much pathos. It all sounded much simplier. But the meaning is transmitted correctly. Everyone has a right to have a personal opinion.

After that he added:

For a man there are only two options available to have an attitude toward sodomites: either acceptance or rejection. Given the aggression with which sodomites dictate their will to the world, there can not be some middle way. If you continue to flirt with sodomites, citing the rules of international, civil or criminal law – it means to be cunning and violating the law of God. Putting it simple – to serve the devil. Even non-participation in the solution of this problem is a betrayal of God, whatever numerous and often conflicting “rights” claim. Plus the existence of official organizations which sodomites have in all their forms, from homosexuals to pedophiles – it is a direct insult to the feelings of believers in God, and therefore it should be prosecuted.


Okhlobystin provided more explanation:

Many people discuss what I said at “Spiritual Talks” in Novosibirsk. But this is not the whole truth – I said it in Togliatti, Obninsk, Fryazino, Yaroslavl, Vladimir, Zelenograd, Tomsk, Nizhny Novgorod, Gomel, Vitebsk, Minsk, Ivanovo, Riga, Tallinn, Orel, Samara, Izhevsk, Kirov, Omsk, Barnaul , Krasnodar, Penza, Saratov, Kazan and Rostov-on-Don. And every time people stood up and applauded these words. These are not my words, it’s their thoughts. I was only saying these thoughts out loud.

    If the Western World does not accept every Russian sexual minority who wants to leave, into our countries under asylum we are complicit.

    Johnny Weir this is the Russia you claim to LOVE.

    Non-human Nazi maggot.

  • Tom

    Gross. I don’t know how, but it seems very easy for some people to justify genocide. This shouldn’t be so shocking…but it is. Just another reminder of how much more I need to do as a straight dude to silence people like this.

  • Guest

    This barbarian is supported by non-human blood thirsty hate mongers in America such as Tony Perkins, Bryan Fischer, Brian Brown, Austin Ruse Linda Harvey, Scott Lively and they will all be right behind him to gallows just like the Nazis who were caught and tried after WWII. Fair warning. Change or hang.

  • Mandy Moobeepwakkawakkapewpew

    There are plenty of straight people not willing to procreate…. are we burning them too? Best hope your children are not gay,,,,, or are you burning them too if they happen to be so? So many facepalms right here……

  • Sullivan

    When has Russia known a single thing about human rights? Just ask the Jews, the Chechens, Eastern Europeans, Afghans, the Roma, and now gays. Russians have no mind of their own. They need someone to tell them what they think, either Communist dictators or religious superstitions.

    This d-bag’s hate clearly shows that he’s the one with the mental health problem.

    OK Okhlobystin. Bring it! We’ll call together all the homosexuals in Russia and leave it to you personally to try and shove them into a furnace. You think it’s not going to be YOUR ass and yours along that will be going up in flames, you sniveling little bitch?!

  • steerpike66

    He became a priest as a career move; the smart little rat saw the way things were going in Putin’s new theocratic gangster state and so he made the religious move to insulate his career.

      Perhaps he saw further than you think. Perhaps he saw what would become necessary to save his own life. I’m in no way defending him, but it could be instructive for Russians today. That is the tomorrow waiting for them?

      judge not others as God is our only judge and jury we only answer to him for our sins..And if this man thinks he can do whatever or say whatever about others decision in their walk in life then we as God’s children answer to him and only him…If your child was gay what would u as well burn them too in a furnace this man is a pig and he has not right to judge anyone on their sexual preference..only God the Father has that right…

  • Dale Chan

    The guy is an iron clad psycho who wants to be the leader of a Theocratic Russia. He is an irrational, violent degenerate who does not deserve to draw breath.

  • Snehal Rajput

    Pathetic . Would he burn his own Son or Daughter if he/she happens to be Gay ?

    • hawaiiguy

      IVAN is GAY! Why else would he be used as a tool for gay rights, I think the zionists are getting really desperate though, using the oven hoax is a classic though.

    More Christians who advocate death to anyone gay. These stories of religious people calling for murder are daily now and this is the Russia shown to the world. Religion, spreading like the virus death of humanity.

  • Ogre Magi

    and to think, some gays say I am wrong for hating christians!

    • The Webcast Guru

      I say this to you. Do not denigrate yourself by hating–anyone, or anything. This man does not speak for us, either as gays OR as Christians. He is a man. He is an example of what can happen when a man is seriously misinformed, proud, and self-absorbed; that is NOT Christian. You know that as well as I. I say you are wrong for hating. Because you make this statement, I know you know the difference. Lift yourself up above such triviality, as you were created to do. I know, as you do, that you are very special. Difficult? Absolutely. Necessary? Yes, now more than ever. Be the champion you were created to be. We, I need you.

    • Ignatz

      You are. Doesn’t mean some Christians aren’t just as wrong, or even wronger.

      I live in New York City, and every Christian church I’ve been in has had whole lot of gay members.

    [ These are not my words, it’s their thoughts. I was only saying these thoughts out loud.]

    Frighteningly, that one statement of his is probably actually true. The scary thing isn’t that this clown said it, it’s that so many applauded it.

  • hawaiiguy

    Wow just wow! Amazing how many people ate this Zionist propaganda backed “ultra super gay Ivan”‘s rant! To this site I give the “2013 award of gullibility”, congrats!

    He is an actor? What if he got a gay script that was paying ten million dollars for the leading role? Rubbish
