Gay People will be subject to arrest at the 2014 Olympics in Russia.

I have thought long and hard about this. I do not want to boycott the 2014 Olympics. The United States should not have to boycott the 2014 Olympics. The Russian Federation, by threatening to arrest all gay attendees of the Olympics (the legislator who wrote the law just came out saying all Olympic attendees showing gay support or who are gay, will be subject to arrest ), have disqualified themselves from holding the Olympics.

Let me make this clear. There are out athletes who are now subject to arrest. Johnny Weir, if he goes to Russia, will be arrested. Russia is clearly saying, "We will arrest and detain your athletes if we don't morally approve of them." How can a country with this attitude, with these laws, host an international sporting event.

Russia has disqualified itself.

The Olympic Committee is the one who should be boycotting Russia. Not individual countries, but the entire Olympic Organization needs to tell Russia, "Change the Law or Lose the Olympics."

CHANGE THE LAW OR LOSE THE OLYMPICS.
