The Norwegian artist and TV host of children’s programs called Tooji,
who represented Norway in the international Eurovision song contest in 2012,
has made a lot of people talk in his home-country with his new music video
In the music video you see the 28 year old singer have intimate sex with
a male pastor – right in front of the alter of a real church called Frogner Kirke in Oslo.
Along with the launch of the new song and video, Tooji now “comes out” as a homosexual.
And it’s totally on purpose he chose the church for the video.
“The song and video is about running from yourself, denying yourself, and yeah, if God is
everything and everyone, denying God.
Religion has put shame on people for too long.”, says Tooji.
THE FACT THAT IT’S A REAL CHURCH
Tooji and his production team that shot the video had previously asked the church
for permission to film a “poetic, symbolic and beautifully acted scene with love
between two men.”
A request that the church said yes to, to show that they are not homophobic.
.. But after having seen the video and the final result, the bishop (Ole Christian Kvarme) is furious
at Tooji and his team.
It is a fact that many people grow out of things like “transgenderism” and homosexuality.
There are famous people who have went on record about this, talking about their personal
experiences. One example is Antoine Dodson who says past life experiences made him that way:
The Eurovision song contest has become the new speaking podium for the gay community.
The rules are that there cannot be any political songs or any political talk in the
program, but all of that has been ignored for Conchita Wurst, last year’s winner.
The name has sexual undertones by the way, even though it’s a family show,
and so does the title of his song “Rise Like a Phoenix”.
“Wurst” means sausage, and we all know what phoenix rhymes with, especially
in the context of “rise”.
But how do the Danes react to this news about the porn scene shot in the church?
Let’s check some Facebook comments.
Sandy Nielsen says: “All you who have a problem with it must have
problems with sex in general. Do you really get so upset about a video
shot in a church where homosexuals have sex?”
Mia says: “How liberating! The man is right about religion and homosexuality.”
Sexually active gay men are according to Danish numbers 13 more likely to have or
get HIV. Here is the link to that article by the oldest TV station in Denmark:
If we are to look at American studies, let’s go with the numbers from the CDC
(Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) which are shown in these statistics:
So maybe it’s not hate, maybe it’s love and compassion.
The golden rule in the Bible teaches us to treat others how we want to be treated.
I (the citizen journalist) don’t want to get HIV.
When I was irresponsible and drank a lot, partied a lot, slept around,
I also preferred it when people just told me it was okay.
But looking back, I wish someone who cared about me had told me to knock it off.
Because I was breaking hearts by being a so called player.
And I thought it was cool.
Looking back, I wish someone that I would have listened to, would have told me
to stop being so irresponsible.
That’s what the golden rule is all about.
