Conservative christian democrats are a small party here in Finland, and making people do *facepalm* because of their impecable talent of putting their foot in mouth, not once but twice. Both the chairman ( chairwoman actually ) and communications director commented the attack towards pride parade – asking whether marginal forces actually provoked values of majority and hence were themselves responsible.
They did not say that dirty fags and lesbians should stay at home and be out of sight, but the sentiment was the same. I could have expected this in Moscow, St. Petersburg or Mississippi, but in Finland.
I just don’t get it. Where is the christian love thy neighbor mentality?
