Rome's beautiful (and quite gay!) Christmas street lighting; Conservatives are upset… but are confused as to how to respond!!
See article on HuffPo here:
It is depressing to know how the rainbow-flag theme for the Christmas lights on Rome's main shopping street was associated with homosexuality and have ignited an unholy row in the Eternal City.
It is a very dazzling sight and it truly brings the Christmas spirit among the people. I don’t think anything is wrong with that. If only we could stop being judgmental and be more sensitive to more important things rather than this.
It's even more depressing than you express: the lighting was intended to speak for all gays!
