After reading the two articles regarding the anti-gay law's in Russia and a ban of the Sochi 2014 olympics, I have come to conclude that there should be a ban but it is unlikely. Unfortunately for us the Olympics has stood it's ground for the LGBT members but it's attempts will be dwarfed by the magnitude and the elusive promises that Vladimir Putin gives to the public. Both Stephen fry and the Economist have the right to their opinions but unfortunately their attempts won't change much.
