GAY CHANNEL nominates POPE AS MEDIA PERSONALITY
BRUSSELS (KerkNet) – The television OUTTV, which focuses on gay people and lifestyle, nominated Pope Francis as media personality of the year. The pope owes his nomination to his opposition to discrimination against gays and lesbians. He said earlier this year: “If a person is homosexual, seek God and good will, who am I to judge him?” OUTTV praises him for his conciliatory tone compared to its predecessors. Therefore it is also a support for believer’s holibi.
Viewers and holibi can until 3 October to participate in the online poll via http://www.out.tv. In addition to international personalities such as singer Conchita Wurst, clean jumper Tom Daley, American Footballer Michael Sam, swimmer Ian Thorpe and Pope Francis, OUTTV nominated among the Belgians Axel Hirsoux, Bart De Wever, Elio Di Rupo and Roos Van Acker.
