Boycott Italian Superstar Vocalist Al Bano Carrisi

The famous Italian vocalist Al Bano Carrisi has come out with his sentiment against gay pride and the public display of homosexuality.

"I'm a practicing Catholic and I say only this to homosexuals: I'm not in favor of ghettos, but don't make such a show, do your things in private. I don't like gay pride demonstrations, where they parade undisguised," said Carrisi, a world-famous singer who has sold tens of millions of albums during his 40-year career.

To someone like me inoculated against [homosexual rights demonstrations], it might seem funny, unfortunately, but if I were to see it in my little daughter it would brother me. It seems to me to be an exposition of Sodom and Gomorrah.

If they question themselves thoroughly and want to be cured from this imperfection, they're doing well."
It seems when it comes to his heterosexual lifestyle, it is anything but sacred:

"Al Bano divorced his wife Romina in 1999, they have a son, Yari, and three daughters Ylenia, Cristel, and Romina Jr. He had one son and one daughter from ex-girlfriend and showgirl Loredana Lecciso" (Wikipedia).

You just know one of his kids is going to turn out to be gay or bi or trans. It never fails!

I always hope/not hope for those scenarios. I hope so because it would change their attitude, but it would be rough on that kid.

Can we boycott the Omaha World Herald, too?

Al Bano will also participate in San Remo song contest supporting an ex-gay singer. As I wrote in a previous comment, an Italian ex-gay singer who will participate in San Remo song contest with a song titled Luca was gay whose lyric defends that there is a cure for homosexuality.

Omaha what's up with the Omaha World Herald?

Isaac I heard about that singer, he is a moron. Is there something in the water, Italian singers all of a sudden hate gays?

Another fine example of why "Christianity is Stupid"

and i'm disgusted every time someone comes out as catholic. why don't they just keep that pathetic fact to themselves in private? if they ever want to cure themselves of it, then talk to me. i don't want my kids perverted by these catholic a-holes. having children out of wedlock? divorce? must be a very good practicing catholic too.

at least i've never heard of him before! : )

Give me a break. Who amde him god to judge other people. Practicing catholic my ass. having pre-marital sex and a divorce is not being practiced by "Catholics" He shoul look at his own life before he opens his big mouth about other people.

Jason said...

Isn't there something in the Bible about "let he who is without sin cast the first stone?" As a Catholic, divorce is forbidden, as is sex outside the confines of marriage. I count at least two sins that prevent him from calling us out on our supposed sin.

And on a low brow note -- isn't his name(Al Bano) just a tilde off from literally meaning "In the bathroom"?

There's still hope that the catholics also one day will become christians...
