    “Rome is against intolerance and all racism”. ! ! ! !

    Yea, and bears don’t poop in the woods.

    It’s only when Ratzy will be taken away in a pure white straight- jacket trimmed with white rabbit fur and lace, a piece of duct tape firmly pressed over his mouth and a bright red dunce cap on his head that Rome will progress towards tolerance and straight into acceptance.

    But I ain’t bitter.

  2. How wonderful these people are standing up to homophobia – Shame we in the UK do not stand up to homophobic acts.Lee

  3. Great to see such large numbers turning out for this. Couldn’t see this happening in Britain, there’s too much apathy amongst the gay community here.

  4. wow,,i was shocked to read Italy and 30,000 people all in the same sentence when it comes to protesting against homophobia. maybe there is a God after all!! *said tongue-in-cheek*

    on a serious side I am sickened to read about our brethren being attacked so viciously in this day and age no matter where. how horrifyingly scary. reminds me of lynch mobs in alabama or mississippi in the forties. but to read witnesses saw four men “running away”,,,wow,,where is the courage in that,,,running away after cowardly beating on someone or throwing firecrackers,,,my god ,,,grow up!!
