Once again a common victim brings our two cultures closer together

Pam Spaulding reports that an Italian deputy-mayor, Giancarlo Gentilini, recently called for an "ethnic cleansing of faggots":
"I will immediately give orders to my forces so that they can carry out an ethnic cleansing of faggots," Gentilini told the station in an interview.

"The faggots must go to other [places] where they are welcome. Here in Treviso there is no chance for faggots or the like."

I was going to rhetorically ask what is it with Italians and gay people, but then I remembered that only a few years ago Rhea County, Tennesee, wanted to ban all gays, too.
