MSNBC anchor Thomas Roberts condemned Russia's anti-LGBT "propaganda" laws during an interview this weekend on Russia's state-sponsored RT news network. Roberts, who hosted the 2013 Miss Universe pageant in Moscow on Saturday, had spent some of the previous week reporting on the effects of the law on Russia's LGBT community. "I don't think that the LGBT population in Russia or anywhere, should be marginalized to that degree," Roberts said. "We are not asking for special protection, we're just asking for equal respect."
