Lansing Blasting Sister City

The city of Lansing is blasting their sister city St. Petersburg, Russia for their treatment of gays. Lansing city council also put up an initiative proposed July 15 that would have severed ties with the Russian sister city, but members are using their connection with St. Petersburg to criticize its anti-gay legislation. Council member Kathie Dunbar, states in the UPI report, “Can I impact change across the globe from my seat on the Lansing City Council? In most cases, no. I am limited in the effect I can have on discrimination in other jurisdictions, and we certainly don’t have the time or resources to issue resolutions condemning human rights violations every time they occur in our own country, much less throughout the world. That said, the events in St. Petersburg offered us a unique opportunity.” Let’s see, Lansing is ripping on St. Petersburg, and Obama canceled his trip to Russia. Things are becoming cold again.
