American skier Bode Miller says that those who accept Russia's anti-gay propaganda law are intolerant and ignorant. Penguins captain Sidney Crosby says everyone should have an equal right to play.

Bode and Sidney don't seem to understand that at the upcoming Olympic Winter Games in Russia, all athletes will have an equal right to compete. But no group — including the homosexuals and their supporters — will be allowed to demonstrate at the games for their cause.

The same law is also applied to those who maintain that marriage is a union between a man and a woman.
