RT Network story: Vladamir Putin orders Adoption Ban by Same-Sex Couples

Does anyone else think this is over the top?
Over the top? It's not even universally accepted everywhere in the U.S. According to Wikipedia:
Wikipedia said:
In the U.S., states may restrict adoption by sexual orientation or marital status. Furthermore, since adoptions are mostly handled by local courts in the United States, some judges and clerks accept or deny petitions to adopt on criteria that vary from other judges and clerks in the same state,[67] leading to a confused or ambiguous legal status for same-sex parents in some states.
The article makes the point that most Russian citizens think the ban doesn't go far enough! Vox populi, vox dei.
