(This tagline is identical to the one you are reading)
Before Povia's song was aired, the Italian comedian Roberto Benigni presented a twenty-minute show in which he condemned Povia, saying that homosexuality isn't a sin and that gays have been persecuted historically "because they love someone."
Only a comedian could say it with a straight face.

Interesting story. That had to be tough.
To Povia I would say....... “Welcome home.”

I had read about this before.
Notice the incredible power of art. How many articles and essays and whole books have been written laying out the truth from a million different angles?
Somehow a song, whose text could hardly be more simplistic, breaks the silence, intimidates the bullies, and gives courage to the right people.
One of the “institutions” the Marxists marched through in our society is the arts. The leftist nihilist message is pumped out through Rock and Rap. How long has it been since the last pop song about getting married and having kids was published—1947?

Healthy news. I like it. It’s an oasis in today’s wasteland.

The supposed innate and immutable quality of homosexuality is a necessary political fiction. In order for homosexuals to be granted all sorts of special rights and privileges, it must be assumed that they are acting out of some unstoppable compulsion. Otherwise, their actions are just choices, and deserving of no special consideration.
But this political fiction has taken the place of common sense, and people have actually come to believe it is true.

Shows the difference between normal people and mentally disturbed liberals.
Thanks for posting this article. It was powerful... to think of Italians going forward with this artist and his song in the Festival despite homosexuals protesting, etc., it just powerful. It smacks of a nod to common sense and reality. Good that the audience repudiated the man allowed to fuss about the performance by doing one of his own, that is really terrific.

Nothing, absolutely nothing, enrages the homo-Gestapo more than the mere suggestion that homosexuals can change. Marriage amendment supporters, evangelical church adherents, Antonin Scolia, all of these are nothing compared to the affront to their philosophy that a former homosexual represents.

If they can change, that proves that they are not born that way, and their whole argument is destroyed.
