"We have no gays in Sochi" - Sochi mayor

This is the level of complete ignorance in Russia. The mayor of Sochi has come out with this:
There's not even one gay in the village, according to the mayor of Sochi, the Russian city set to host the 2014 Winter Olympics. 

In an interview with the BBC, Anatoly Pakomov, said there were no gay people in his city on the east coast of the Black Sea. 

"We don't have them in our town," Mr Pakomov said in the interview. 

The mayor added that gay people would be welcome in his town, provided they "respect Russian law" and "don't impose their habits on others". more
Does this guy have the slightest inkling at how stupendously stupid he's showing himself to be to the world? Even worse, it's not just somebody in the street who has some weird ideas, he's the bloody mayor of the place. It seems like everyone over there who opens their mouth to defend Russia's homophobia (right up to Putin himself), puts their foot well and truly in it. 

Wherever you find humanity, you will find gays. I always remember that with Simon as he used to say that a lot, and it's absolutely true. Whatever the percentage is, (5%? 10%?) there will always be that percentage of humanity that is gay. Whether it's in Sochi or Sydney.

These ignorant fools are going to be running a $50billion event? Oh FFS. And these idiots are supposedly guaranteeing the safety of visiting gays? They couldn't organise their way out of a wet paper bag let alone run the Olympic games. Putins dream of a glitzy games showing what a modern country Russia is now supposed to be, has already failed. It's a games put together by neanderthals stuck in the dark ages. Pffffft.
